Guys guys I am so excited! After years of research, I have finally found the best follow-up e-mail for prospects that are not replying to your messages.
The problem is – first, they don’t reply (duh). Second, you don’t know WHY.
Is it because you don’t have time?
Is it because you didn’t read my e-mail?
Is it because you hate me and burn every message with my name on it?
Now I CAN know. Let me give you my e-mail template, here:
The best follow-up email ever
I trust you are fine. When I see potential I immediately recognize it and go after it. That is what I saw when we met [insert place of meeting] for a potential cooperation. However, I have not been successful reconnecting with you in the last months. It might be that you don’t have any interest in talking to me, and that is ok. I just need your signal to know whether or not to keep trying.
To make it easier for you, you can reply just with a keystroke. Send me a reply with one letter and I will know what to do:
A – I would like to schedule a call in the next days and talk more, please propose a date and time
B – Very, very busy at the moment, let’s please be in touch to have a chat in the next months
C – I am not interested in how you can improve our [insert you product or service] strategy
D – Can you please explain again who you are and how you work with [insert your target audience]?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
So you see, most of the times people are just too busy to bother answering. With this text, you help them give you a super quick feedback on their current situation.
I have incredible news: in my case, it has 100% response rate!
Some people have actually sent me a nicely built email, some others told me they didn’t have time with just one letter, like in this case:
Did you read the subject line?
I just need a keystroke
Thank you so much Hubspot for the inspiration!
Go be champions with this tip 🙂
