Mr. President of The Company I Work For,
My name is Donna and I’ve just started working here at The Company That I Work For. I’m really enjoying the environment and the work that we do. However it has come to my attention that we do not have a presence on social media. I know we have our website but I feel like we are really missing out on a great opportunity. Social media has many advantages that will help get our name out there.
There are 3 kinds of social media that I’d would like you to consider; Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
As you must know Facebook is a very popular platform for networking. If we created a Facebook group for our company we could share it across a much bigger audience than we could by our methods now. We can gain likes and followers so that we can keep our customers updated on the latest coming out of our company’s doors. This is also a great way to receive feedback on our customers through comments so that we can continue to improve ourselves for better sales.
Next Twitter. It’s the next biggest things after Facebook, and in some ways even bigger than Facebook because of it’s microblogging format. Tweeting facts about our company or quotes from customer feedback would be a phenomenal way to get our name out there. Not only would people see our Tweets but they have the possibility of retweeting them. It’s a great tool to get our products out to those people we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to reach. You wouldn’t have to worry about finding people to see the Tweet initially at first either. You just have to tag a Tweet to categorize it and then people will find it based on that.
Instagram is something like Twitter except instead of 140 characters to write something you get a small square to take a picture with some kind of caption. You can utilize tagging in the same way we would on Twitter and when people find our Instagram posts they would be able to see a great visual representation of our company as opposed to words. Some people out there respond more with a visual aid and I believe it would be important to incorporate this into our company.
The benefits of these platforms are astronomical and I truly believe that should we invest in them it will do wonders for the way we market ourselves.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this proposal. I look forward to hearing from you about it.

This proposal will be for a made up company that develops video games.
Dear Mr./Ms. President,
Gamers are passionate people. If there is one thing that they absolutely love, it is a passionate game developer. The best way to advertise a game is to show the consumers that you really care about the game. Successful titles like Call of Duty have fallen to the greed of big corporations, and many of the gamers out there do not respect the game as a result. They loathe the thought of Infinity Ward pumping out identical copies of games and pricing them at retail values. To gain recognition within the gaming community, the first step should be to establish a strong connection with the audience. Creating videos that detail specific game mechanics and choices can really hype up an upcoming game. A blog can also be used to update potential customers on how the game development is going along. Gamers like to be in the loop. Keeping them in the dark will only betray their trust, resulting in a bad reputation. If the gaming company really wants to survive in this industry, it is important to get well known in the realm of social media. As I mentioned before, a blog would be really helpful as it would not only inform viewers of your product, but it would also build a healthy relationship with the rest of the community. Another way to gain recognition would be to get featured on other blogs and gaming websites like IGN and PCGamer. News websites absolutely love to discover upcoming games, so definitely consider creating videos, vlogs, or blogs to try and catch their attention. Gaming companies and developers are like brand names, once they have a reputation, it is really difficult the alter the public’s image. That is why it is so crucial to make the correct decisions now while the company is still fairly unknown. I can help you establish a good foundation for the company with my set of skills. So pls…hire me :]
