Follow up Letter after Phone Conversation
You can have a telephonic conversation to take an appointment, request a product quotation or even fix a sales meeting. Nowadays, most of the companies conduct an interview over the phone with the applicants. However, since decisions are not taken instantly, it takes times to complete the circle of the telephonic conversation. The next thing involved is following up with the person on the other end of the phone. The best way to do it is through a follow up letter.
The follow up letter should be written immediately within two days from the discussion held on the phone. This way the reader can relate to the previous correspondence easily. The letter should include the main points of the dialogues held during the discussion. If it is written for a job related purpose, the employer must have asked you to send your resume. In that situation, start your letter with "As per your request in our telephonic conversation yesterday morning, I am enclosing a copy of my resume for your kind consideration". Then the letter should summarize your qualifications and experience and request an appointment for an interview.
Sometimes the clients may ask you to quote a product or service on the phone. After the discussion, you can follow up with them through a letter. Here too, remind them about the talk held between you. Include a price list for the product or service and highlight one or two specialty about it in the letter. Express your ability to provide the goods or service on time and lure them with some offer. Here are two samples of follow up letters that will clear your doubts.
