Two of the most popular pages on my Writing Help Central website contain links to dozens of real-life sample letters for both personal and business situations. The fact that these pages are some of the most visited on the website is a good thing because it means that many people are not trying to “reinvent the wheel” when they need to write a certain type of letter. Rather, they are looking for specific example letters to help them with their own letter-writing tasks.
As anyone who has ever purchased one of my writing kits knows, I am a big believer in the value of using “real-life templates” as samples whenever you need to write just about anything, including: letters, resumes, proposals, reports, personal statements, and more. Real-life samples are especially helpful whenever you need a professional quality letter in a hurry.
There are a number of very good reasons why “real-life” letter templates are much more effective than those bare-bones fill-in-the-blank generic software templates that you often see being promoted online. Here are some of the main benefits that you will realize when working with real-life templates:
Fully-Formatted Final Versions
Real-life letter templates are fully-formatted as final letters so that you can see exactly how they looked when they were sent out in a “real-life” situation. They don’t look like some kind of “draft” software-generated form letter. When using them, you never have to start from a blank page.
Content With Value
It is much easier to adapt real-life letter templates to YOUR actual situation because they give you visual and intellectual cues that you can relate to. Naturally, when you see how a professional copywriter or consultant has dealt with a “real-life” scenario, in terms of word choice, phrasing, context, and punctuation, it is much easier to adapt to the real-life situation for which you are writing. This gives value to the actual content of the template.
Easy To Work With
Real-life letter templates are easier to work with than the typical software-generated letter templates. You simply load them into your word processing program and edit and adjust them to fit your own specific situation. Presto! With just a little bit of copy, cut, and paste, you have a fully formatted real-life letter ready to be printed and sent out in the mail.
With real-life letter templates, it is much easier to find an adaptable “fit” for the situation for which you are writing. Not only do they give you the final format of a document; their situational-based content provides an excellent real-life sample and gives you food-for-thought that will assist you in organizing your thoughts as well as in the actual writing process.
The bottom line on real-life letter templates is that they are easy to use because they are easy to relate to. By their very nature, they were created by real people to deal with real-life situations that you can easily identify with. They give you the comfort of knowing that what you are sending out has already been used by professionals in other “real-life” scenarios.
