ADVANTAGES OF REAL-LIFE TEMPLATES
Clearly, "model" that most of us would rather work with, if we had to write a similar letter, is definitely second one, "real-life" template.
You can relate to it. It talks about real-life people in a real-life situation that you can identify with. And, you get to see exactly how a professional worded it.
There are other advantages to "real-life" templates.
Fully-Formatted Final Versions: "Real-life" templates are fully-formatted as final documents so that you can see exactly how they looked when they were sent out in a "real-life" situation. They don't look like some kind of "draft" form letter.
Content With Value: Working with "real-life" templates, it is much easier to adapt them to YOUR actual situations because they give you visual and intellectual cues that you can relate to.
Naturally, when you see how a copywriter or consultant has dealt with a "real-life" scenario, in terms of word choice, context, and punctuation, it is much easier to adapt to real-life situation that you are writing for. In that way, actual content has value.
Easy To Work With: "Real-life" templates are just as easy to work with as other templates. You simply load them into your word processing program and edit and adjust them to fit your own specific situation. Presto! You have a fully formatted real-life letter ready to be printed and sent out in mail.
You also have comfort of knowing that what you are sending has already been used in other "real-life" situations.
Real-Life Content: With real-life templates, it is much easier to find an adaptable "fit" for situation you are writing for. Not only do they give you final format of a document, their content provides an excellent real-life sample and gives food-for-thought to assist you in writing process.

Now I ask you, would you rather work from a "fill-in-the- blanks" generic template. or a fully-formatted "real-life" template?
