What is a Sales Letter?
A sales letter is a document designed to generate sales. It persuades the reader to place an order; to request additional information; or to lend support to the product or service or cause being offered. It influences the reader to take a specific action by making an offer–not an announcement–to him. To sell, the sales letter must be specific, go to the right audience, appeal to the readers needs, and it must be informative.

The Samurai Selling System
Chuck Laughlin and Karen Sage founded Corporate Visions in 1986 to provide solutions for the problems most sales and marketing professionals face – how to position themselves against their competition, shorten their sales cycle, and present their products successfully. To achieve this, they created a line of POWER MESSAGING workshops, products, and services for executives, sales professionals, and technical teams. These powerful programs, based upon the code of the ancient samurai, teach “break-out-of-the-box” strategies to dramatize a company’s uniqueness, position their products, and close the sale.
