  4. 4. THE TALK PLAN #1. Targeting: Finding the correct leads to email. #2. Interacting: Mindset, subject lines etc. #3. Driving: Winning email formulas and scripts.
  5. 5. #1 TARGETING FINDING THE CORRECT LEADS TO EMAIL
  6. 6. IT STARTS BY GETTING ORGANIZED HOW TO MANAGE YOUR HIT LISTS ● A hit list includes prospective partners, customers, whoever you are trying to interact with. ● Components: company name, last day of contact, decision maker, email address, prioritization. ● Spreadsheet or sales tracking software (salesforce, highrise…).
  7. 7. A SIMPLE PROCESS FOR B2B HERE IS ONE SIMPLE METHOD START BY GETTING THE LIST OF ALL THE COMPANIES THAT MAY BE INTERESTED BY WHAT YOU ARE DOING. FIND THE DECISION MAKER FOR THAT COMPANY. FIND/GUESS HIS EMAIL ADDRESS OR HIS PHONE NUMBER.
  8. 8. HOW TO IDENTIFY COMPANIES FOR YOUR HIT LISTS ● Linkedin. ( manually as the API has been restricted but we can also use Phantom :-] ) ● Google & Similarsitesearch. ● Facebook Places & Yelp. ● Manta, Pages Jaunes… ● Datanyze & Builtwith.
  9. 9. HOW TO FIND THE DECISION MAKER FOR YOUR HIT LISTS ● At this point you are just looking for the likely stakeholder’s name to approach him by email, Facebook or Twitter first. ● Sometimes you will get the decision maker right off the bat, but most times you won’t know who holds this power until you start engaging with the company.
  10. 10. HERE IS A STRATEGY TO GET HIM (IN ORDER) ● Linkedin ( profile description ). ● Corporate website. (browse the blog if there is one) ● Your personal network. ● Informational cold call. ● Contact former employees.
  11. 11. IF YOU HAVE COMMON CONNECTIONS, YOU CAN ASK PEOPLE TO INTRODUCE YOU.
  12. 12. ABOUT INFORMATIONAL COLD CALL FIND OUT WHO IS IN CHARGE ● Make an educated guess who oversees the relevant initiative (probably using Linkedin) ● Find the corporate number on the website and have a script written out for both the call and a voicemail. ● Try to pitch this person on the spot (the goal is to find the decision maker). Say more than 2-3 sentences without asking a question.
  13. 13. IF YOU HAVE NO ONE TO CALL: CALL SOMEONE IN SALES (THEY ARE ALWAYS WILLING TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND CHAT).
  14. 14. HACK: CHECK IF THAT PERSON IS ON CLARITY. ;)
  15. 15. ANOTHER TACTIC CALL ASKING FOR SOMEONE THAT USED TO BE THE STAKEHOLDER “Hey can I speak to X?” - I’m sorry but they no longer work here. “Ahh. Well I know they used to manage the [relevant initiative]... any chance you know who their replacement is?”.
  16. 16. YOU’RE SIGNALING FAMILIARITY WHICH SEPARATES YOU FROM THE BUCKET OF PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLING BLINDLY.
  17. 17. EMAIL PAST EMPLOYEES PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO GIVE INFORMATION WHEN THEY NO LONGER WORK FOR A COMPANY. Subject: Help, [Target Company] Name? “Hi X, I’ve been having difficulty identifying the person in charge of [insert initiative] at Company X and saw that you used to work there. Any idea who this might be? Any help is much appreciated.”
  18. 18. ● Rapportive. (common email syntaxes) ● Mailtester & Verify-Email. ● Email hunter, Firmapi. ● Emails4corporations. ● Facebook, Linkedin & Slideshare. HOW TO FIND ANYONE’S EMAIL ADDRESS ALWAYS TRY TO APPROACH BY EMAIL FIRST
  19. 19. ABOUT FREELANCERS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
  20. 20. #2 INTERACTING MINDSET, SUBJECT LINES ETC.
  21. 21. USE COLD EMAILS ONLY WHEN YOU CAN’T GET AN INTRODUCTION FROM A MUTUALLY WARM CONNECTION.
  22. 22. ALWAYS SEND AN EMAIL USING GMAIL
  23. 23. EMAIL BY SAMPLE DON’T WASTE YOUR HIT LIST
  24. 24. ● Get someone’s attention while being incredibly direct. ● Focus on the desire or the pain than it solves instead of the feature. ● Try to find your recipient’s favorite interests. ● [Value add] for [Prospect’s Property / Asset]. ABOUT CRAFTING SUBJECT LINES THE ART OF CATCHING THE ATTENTION
  25. 25. TRACK YOUR OPENING RATES WITH GETSIDEKICK OR YESWARE (THERE IS ALSO BANANATAG)
  26. 26. THINK ABOUT THE MOMENT (THIS MAY BE YOUR MOST IMPORTANT UNFAIR ADVANTAGE)
  27. 27. #3 DRIVING WINNING EMAIL FORMULAS AND SCRIPTS.
  28. 28. THE MOST EFFECTIVE TRICK IS TO CREATE A REFERRAL (INCREASING PROXIMITY)
  29. 29. ● Keep it short and sweet. Ideally 3 sentences, 4 max. ● Use language and an approach that is conversational or as a matter of fact. (the bucket theory) ● Use specific hyperlinks or find a unique way to display you’ve done your homework and this isn’t a canned email. ● Spacing sentences out makes emails: easier to read and appear less daunting. THE BODY OF YOUR EMAIL HOW TO DRIVE POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS
  30. 30. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE EMAILING FROM YOUR COMPANY EMAIL ADDRESS AND THAT YOU INCLUDE A SIGNATURE. IT CAN BRING LEGITIMACY.
  31. 31. PEOPLE DO BUSINESS WITH PEOPLE THEY LIKE. YOU ALSO WANT TO AVOID SIGNALING THAT YOU ARE RUNNING DOWN A HITLIST.
  32. 32. CAN WE USE A SMILEY?
  33. 33. THE BANDAGE EMAIL FORMULA IRRITATE THE WOUND: PROVIDE THE BANDAGE. Hi [prospect], I noticed that your site currently isn’t running a [solution] which typically increases conversions by 20%. Implementing a [solution] is actually something that we help companies like yours with all the time. In fact, it’s what we do for companies [like x, y, z]. If there is a day next week when you have 10 minutes, I’d love to connect so we can talk about getting this taken care of for you. Best,
  34. 34. ONE TACTIC THAT WORKS FOR THE VERY HARD TO REACH IS APPLYING THE BANDAGE EMAIL FRAMEWORK USING A SCREENCAST OF THEIR SITE.
  35. 35. USING PEER PRESSURE THE BOSS REFERRAL Hi [prospect], I’m writing to connect with the person who manages [relevant initiative]. In this pursuit, I’ve also written to [contact 1], [contact 2], and [contact 3]. I wanted to connect about how my company [company name] can help improve [value add] with our [solution]. This is something we’re currently accomplishing with [company x], [company y], and [company z with]. Do you have some time early next week to discuss?
  36. 36. YOU CAN ALSO GET THE REFERRAL BY COLD CALLING THE COMPANY Email Title: Social Media Marketing via Joe CMO. Hi [Decision maker], Joe CMO directed me to you as the point person for all things Social Media. Our company has developed a tool [ .. ] doubles their efficiency. When you have a few minutes, it would be great to connect to discuss how we can help you with this. Best,
  37. 37. COLD EMAIL LIKE OUSSAMA
  38. 38. POSITION YOURSELF IN A POWER PLACE ASK THEM IF THEY WANT SOMETHING OBVIOUS TO BUILD THE CONVERSATIONAL CHAIN. Hi [First name], My company [x] is working with some of the top [professional] in x area to provide early access to a [new solution]. Are you currently at full capacity?
  39. 39. ● Timely articles (company or industry specific ; leverage quotes if you can) ● Conferences. ● Social media activity. ● Reference event in subject line: “Congrats - [Article on New Release]” ; “Connecting at [X Conference]” ; “Tweet on [New Feature]”. ABOUT EVENT-BASED REFERRAL LESS POWERFUL BUT CAN BE EFFICIENT
  40. 40. ● Attaching PDF or a deck at the end. ● Use vocabulary that your prospect does not understand. ● Do not use all caps, highlight or underlining. This does not look professional. ● Reference event in subject line: “Congrats - [Article on New Release]” ; “Connecting at [X Conference]” ; “Tweet on [New Feature]”. COLD EMAIL DON’TS A FEW THINGS TO AVOID
  41. 41. RESPECT YOURSELF
  42. 42. DO NOT PROPOSE COFFEE OR LUNCH IN AN INITIAL COLD EMAIL. FIRST, YOU NEED TO MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND THAT A MEETING WITH YOU WILL PROVIDE VALUE TO THEIR BUSINESS.
  43. 43. ● Make sure to follow up. Them not responding does not mean they are not interested. ● Reasons people don’t respond: they meant to and forgot ; it got lost in their inbox ; they just had too many emails and it didn’t seem urgent ; they didn’t read your proposition thoroughly the first time, thus didn’t realize the value. ● Reply to the original email so they don’t have to go digging for context. DEALING WITH NO-RESPONSE FOLLOW UP UNTIL YOUR GET A RESULT!!!
  44. 44. USE BOOMERANG OR FOLLOWUP.CC
  45. 45. HOW FAR APART ARE THE FOLLOW UPS?
  46. 46. IF THEY DON’T GET BACK AFTER THE FIRST UNANSWERED FOLLOW UP GO IN FOR A COLD CALL. CHANGING THE MEAN OF COMMUNICATION AT THAT POINT IS DEFINITELY THE BEST PRACTICE THAT WORKS.
  47. 47. CONCLUSION
  48. 48. TARGET SMARTLY, BE CREATIVE, KICKASS, FOLLOW UP AND THINK ABOUT THE MOMENT.
  49. 49. THANK YOU QUESTIONS?
