Cover letters are as important as your resume. The point of a cover letter is to introduce yourself and provide as much relevant information as you can to get your resume looked at. Think of your cover letter as a marketing or sales document - the idea is to grab the reader's attention.
Remember to always personalise your cover letter, addressing it to the correct person, explaining why you are the person for the job and how you can help their needs. Do not fill the document with irrelevant information and keep it to one page.
Use the same format and style as your resume, always check your spelling and punctuation, and remember to keep it formal.
