Having recently gained the commitment of their business, it is your responsibility to formally welcome your new customer. This letter tends to be treated by most business owners as a formality, but since you need to send the letter make sure it conveys key messages that will confirm to the recipient they made the right choice.
Just like properly setting the table makes for a more enjoyable meal with family and friends, your welcome letter will set the tone for future communications.
Your letter should support and once again confirm what's been agreed to verbally and/or contractually. This will serve to reassure your new client that you have every intention of meeting or exceeding their expectations for timely response and quality service.
There are several key advantages of sending every new customer a personalized welcome letter.

Customer Welcome Letter Tips
As you create your customer welcome letter, take time to make sure your letter strikes just the right balance of excitement and professionalism.
Your letter should be warm, friendly and shares your enthusiasm about this new relationship, while at the same time making the recipient confident, they will be working with an experienced professional who will deliver on your promises. The customer should read your letter believing they made a great business decision in choosing to work with you and your company.
Following these important tips when writing a customer welcome letter:
- Start your letter with an appropriate greeting. For example, if you know the customer well and they are accustomed to you calling them by their first name, then do so in the letter. Otherwise, your letter may come off too formal, or worse yet, the customer will think they are just getting a simple form letter. On the other hand, if you are not currently on a first name basis, then continue to use a surname to show your respect.
- Express your gratitude for gaining the business. Make your new customer understand that you value the opportunity they are giving you and that you are committed to exceed their expectations and will continue to earn their business every day.
- Restate important details on how you will most effectively work together. Include contact and resource information so the client knows precisely who to call for whatever their question or issue might be.
- Express your optimism for a long-lasting relationship. Assure the client that you and your team are eager to prove the customer made the right choice and they you are committed to helping the customer by adding as much value to the relationship as possible.
- Closing comments stating your personal commitment. Say "Thank you again for choosing to work with me/us" and add something like "You've made the right choice in working with me and my company. You have my personal promise that I will do everything I can to make certain we never let you down."
Write the customer welcome letter that you'd want to receive after agreeing to use a new product or service. Ask yourself as you write each line, how would this sentence make me feel. If the line feels good, keep it. If not, rewrite it until it strikes just the right cord.
