The Secret to Cold Emails

 

We can all agree that we all tend to ignore most unsolicited messages hitting our inbox. And for a good reason, too, most are irrelevant and have used the shotgun approach.

 

Shotgun Approach

The shotgun approach is to get a list of emails, send out your message and hope for a response. If you get a 1% hit rate, then send 100 times your requirement. A simple yet very ineffective idea.

 

The Secret

Instead of the shotgun approach, send something of interest to a prospect, something of real value.

If I get a message from someone I do not know, but it is of interest to me, I will engage just as quickly as I will hit the spam button if it's spam.

 

Dive Deeper

When I say "something of real value", I do not just mean a blanket message of general interest.

For example, don't just say, "do you need any SEO services, or I see you need some SEO work". Make it super-specific. "We specialise in SEO services for financial institutions and have been doing so for over 8 years".

I am sure you can see the difference, but this is only the first step; you should go deeper.
