You probably know that you can download free, ready-to-use Word templates from Microsoft Office Online (www.office.microsoft.com/templates).

But you may not know that many templates offer more than just a nice layout. Quite a few offer sample content, as well.

Examples: sample text for independent contractors’ contracts, a confidentiality agreement, job-offer letters, a letter of complaint about goods or services, or thank you letters to new clients or a speaker. Each template contains sample text that you can tweak to your liking.

The best part: The text comes from top-notch communication books, such as McGraw-Hill’s Handbook of Business Letters by Roy Poe, and expert sources, such as FindLaw.com.

So start with a template to save drafting time. Tip: Compare your office’s current stock of contracts and letters with those written by the pros. You may find ways to improve them.
