We have been your commission agents for two years now, and have stepped up the sales of your products dramatically in our area.
During this short period, the sales have recorded an increase of over 40 percent, despite intense competition in the market.
You will agree, however, that a larger investment in advertising and publicity has to be made to maintain the present sales volume in the face of stiff competition. We would be prepared to make that investment, but, we feel that we should be adequately compensated.
It is in this context that we are forced to make a request for better agency terms. We believe that a raise of 5% in our commission rate would be fair compensation for the extra investment and effort needed to maintain the sales of your products at the present level.
We earnestly hope you will favorably consider this reasonable request.
