A salary negotiation letter is a letter written especially when you think that the amount of money your earn doesn't equalize the amount of work you are offering to an organization. Writing such a letter might be risky so it must be written with deep care. Here in this context, we will guide you about how you can write an effective immediate salary negotiation letter. 

How to write a salary negotiation letter?

Below are mentioned some tips about how you can write an immediate effective salary negotiation letter. Follow these tips for the best outcome of a negotiation letter:

  • What can you offer you to the employer?

It is quite necessary for you to write to your employer what you can offer to the company and what services have you been presenting from your day of joining. Follow this step before directly going to request for negotiation of salary. 

  • Find a variable way about your actual talking point

Before directly asking for salary negotiation, put some valid details and points to your employer. These points may be related to the achievements you achieved in your job until now. For example, you could write about the experience you gained in the past working years, if any award received in your working history, and there can be many more. You can list all of these and make a proper start to ask for your increment/negotiation. 

  • Request for negotiation

After the introductory start, you can request for negotiation in a decent and polite way. Make sure your statements do not seem to be insisting or forcing because this may have a negative impact on your application.

  • Stay Confident

Staying confident in what you do and what you ask for in return will really be helpful in your negotiation request. If you seem to lack in confidence while asking for negotiation, then it may not be an effective request. So, the key point is to stay as confident as possible in requesting the negotiation that you deserve.

  • Pay gratitude

In the end, make sure you pay acknowledgments to the recipient for taking some time out and reading your request letter. Also, pay gratitude for keeping you as a trusted worker of whatever organization you are working in.

Here is attached a sample Salary negotiation letter for your ease.

Dear {{Recipient Name}},

First, I would like to thank you for your interest in me. Your confidence in my abilities is very encouraging. I look forward to contributing to the success of your organization and be a valuable member of your professional team.

Having said that, I can’t help but point out my disappointment with the salary and benefits offered to me. I had something else in mind and I feel I should share it with you since we were both open from the start. I wouldn't have discussed this matter with you hadn't I anticipated a tolerating and understanding person like yourself.

I think it would be only fair if my pay would project my level of experience and extensive skills. I’m sure you agree with me on this point. I am aware of the market’s standard for someone at my level and I believe that your offer is slightly less than that. My enthusiasm and commitment are your guarantees for quality work that will exceed your expectation. I want to give one hundred percent of my abilities, but it would be much easier if I’m one hundred percent satisfied with the compensation. It’s a win-win situation for both of us.

I am confident that you appreciate my argument and I kindly ask you to reconsider your offer. Thank you very much for understanding.

Yours sincerely,
