Your main 4 paragraphs should be written like this:

1) In the first paragraph,  write the position you are responding to.  If possible,  always address the letter to a specific person.  
2) In the second paragraph, write down what interests you and how you apply your experience and skills.
3) In the third, write what you will benefit from, what you want to do there  - your vision for the position.  You can also add something specific that interests you on the web or what you know from your friends.
4) Finally, ask for a meeting with recruiters:  “I'd like to meet you in person. Please, contact me at any time at XY or by e-mail. Best regards, ....."

State the purpose of your letter, the type of job you are applying for, and how you heard about the company. Briefly say why you are interested in the position and in the company. Include what you can offer in the way of educational/work experience.  

Thank the employer for taking the time to look over your resume. Mention that you will be the one to get in touch with them to answer any questions about your resume and find out if the employer has any further questions. End by saying you hope to speak with them again in the near future.

Sample Motivation letter for university content:

Dear Mr. Name receiver,
My name is Name, and I am a high school student at School with a keen interest in studies and art. I am writing to apply for the degree at University. I hope to become a web designer, so I would like to learn more about multimedia design. I feel your course would help me understand the digital design process and the way websites and their visual imagery can help businesses present an image to consumers. I love the way different colors and images can evoke emotions in viewers. I enjoy experimenting with the power of color and imagery and think I have a natural creative flair. I am confident that I will be able to apply this flair to new projects at your school and increase my design abilities with you.
