SUBJECT: First Quarter Objectives
Dear Sales Team,
I would like to commend you all on a job well done! You pulled through last year’s sales campaign by reaching our sales target in a matter of three months.
As we enter another year, I would like to ask you all to continue doing your best by surpassing last year’s quota. I have no doubt that we can generate more sales next quarter.
Your efforts and perseverance led to this great accomplishment. Big thanks to all of you.
