What is the most effective way of influencing my senator or representative?

Occasionally I feel that I should write my senator or representative to register my position on a particular issue. I know how to write a letter, and have seen various online tips
. I want the real scoop. How much more effective is a letter vs. an email? Do I need to reference a particular bill or can I simply give my stance on an issue that doesn't necessarily have some pending legislation? What moves my letter from the crazy nutjob pile to the important voting constituent pile? I'm particularly interested in hearing from people who have worked in a representative/senator's office.
