Create a table or a chart that helps convey your sales message. For example, you might;include a table that succinctly displays the types of employees Kelly Services;offers, a table that highlights employer and employee benefits, or a pie chart;showing the percentage of Fortune 500 companies that use Kelly Services, or a;graph showing another important statistic. Your visual aid should be;attractively designed and should adhere to the guidelines set forth in Chapter;12 such as the following;?;The visual aid must be;ethical and must not distort information;?;The visual aid must be;clearly labeled;?;The type of visual aid;must be suitable for its intended purpose;?;The visual aid must be integrated with the text of the sales;letter in a way that will make sense to the audience;?;The visual aid should;demonstrate the same awareness sensitivity as the letter itself.;?;The sales letter must be;submitted to and any corrections made before submitting to the;Dropbox for grading.;?;Using the memo template provided;in Appendix A, the team is to write a memo explaining each person?s;contributions to the project.
