The Nameplate and Masthead _ You must have a nameplate including the name of your publication and the date it is published. You should have a masthead too. Both nameplate and masthead are necessary. Your masthead lets people know the name of the author if your newsletter is personal or it says contact information if it's a company newsletter.
If you are pitching your idea or services to multiple parties, the one thing you do not want to do is send out a general form letter along with a standard brochure or stack of resumes. That sort of 'one size fits all' approach cannot substitute for a real proposal. The goal of a proposal is to persuade the client or boss to endorse your idea and let you do the job. To succeed at convincing them, you need to focus your message to a specific situation, gain their trust and show them that you know what you're talking about and can deliver what they need.
