Assignment 2.1: Bad News Message – Draft Version

Write a bad newsletter to a customer who has requested an exemption to a
company’s policy. Possible requests that would be subjects of bad newsletters
are:

A request for a refund or replacement of a $1,000 piece of equipment that
broke after three (3) years, one (1) year past the warranty date.

A request for a refund or voucher for a ruined two-week vacation (due to bad
weather: rain or snow) at an expensive resort.

A request to change a company’s “no-pets indoors” policy to a “pet-friendly”
policy to allow customers to bring pets inside the restaurant and allow them to
sit at tables with their owners.

A request to change a company’s “pet-friendly” policy to a “no-pet” policy
to prohibit customers from bringing their pets into the restaurant’s eating
areas – inside or outside.

Other: Write a bad news message based on another scenario.

 

The message should take the “form” of a letter; however, you will submit your
assignment to the online course shell.

letter properly:

  • Include “to” and “from” addresses and the date.
  • Include appropriate greeting and salutation.
  • Use bullets as needed to emphasize key points.

2. Show
appreciation and concern for the customer from the beginning (possibly with a
brief buffer) and throughout the letter. Avoid being overly apologetic or
complimentary.

3. Provide the
turndown or bad news early in the letter.

4. Make the
turndown clear and support it by providing two (2) to three (3) key reasons for
the turndown.

5. Provide an
alternative and / or a positive expectation of a future with the customer.
