  • 76 Sample Opening Lines for Sales Letters and Letter Proposals

    Sometimes writing that first word or sentence is the hardest part. It often seems like people need time to warm up, so they start writing meaningless words instead of addressing what the customer will get right from the beginning.

    We generally advise people to plan and organize the messages they want to convey and let the words flow from the plan. Even still, it can be hard to get started.

    To help you write the perfect introduction, we have put together a list of words. These openings can get you started by introducing your proposal, section, paragraph, or idea. You can use this list as inspiration to help get your creative juices flowing.
