Simple back-link request

I'm never quite sure about how to approach bloggers or website managers about requesting back links. Someone has just sent me one that I think is concise and polite so I thought I'd share it with you (I've taken out the details):

Dear Sir/Madam, I hope you are well. My name is [NAME] and I am writing on behalf of [Company] with regard to an article on your site [Website URL] featuring [Company] here: [Full URL link] I was wondering if it would be possible to get a link back to the [Company] website from this article for the convenience of your readers, in case readers would like to find out more about the brand? If possible, the URL is: [Company URL] Info page: [Company Info URL] We would really appreciate your help with this, but if it's not possible, I’d still like to take the opportunity to thank you for the mention of [Company]. I understand that you are really busy and I truly appreciate your time. Please let me know if this is something that you could assist with. Many thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you. Kind regards, [Name]
