Sample letter to announce a new business opening

When you are ready to open a new business it’s common to send out a mass mailing (or circular) to as many potential customers as possible announcing the opening, and inviting people to visit.

Remember, people are busy and most won’t take the time to read a long winded announcmenet so here are some top tips when you write your letter:

  • Make it short
  • Make it to the point
  • Personalise it by using ‘you’ and not ‘our customers,’ ‘everyone,’ ‘clients’ etc.
  • Enclose an opening offer such as a money off voucher or free consultation – whatever works for your business. Make sure it’s a genuine offer.
  • Remember to insert contact details
  • Pictures, pictures, pictures. Nothing makes a better impression of your business than good, professional photos.
