How to write great cold emails

Writing cold emails can be challenging, especially if you’re trying to make a good first impression. The key to writing great cold emails is to understand your target audience, personalize your message, and provide value. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips to help you write effective cold emails that get results.

  1. Research your target audienceBefore you start writing your cold email, it’s essential to research your target audience. Try to find out as much as you can about the person or company you’re emailing. Look for common interests, mutual connections, or anything that could help you establish a connection.

  2. Personalize your messageOnce you’ve done your research, it’s time to personalize your message. Use the recipient’s name, and mention something you have in common or a recent achievement of theirs. Avoid generic messages that sound like they were sent to a hundred other people.

  3. Keep it short and sweetYour cold email should be short and to the point. Avoid long paragraphs and unnecessary details. The recipient should be able to read your email in a few seconds and understand its purpose.

  4. Provide valueYour cold email should offer something of value to the recipient. This could be a solution to a problem they’re facing, a helpful resource, or an introduction to someone they’d like to meet. Be clear about what you’re offering and how it can benefit them.

  5. Include a call to actionEnd your cold email with a clear call to action. This could be a request for a meeting, a phone call, or a reply to your email. Make it easy for the recipient to respond by providing your contact information and any relevant details they need to know.

  6. Follow upIf you don’t get a response to your cold email, don’t be discouraged. Follow up with a polite reminder a few days later. Sometimes, people are busy and need a gentle nudge to respond.

The worst follow-ups are “hey just bumping this up”.

I hate it when I receive these. the best follow-ups provide even more value than the first email.

Recently we launched background.lol in partnership with Prompts Daily (newsletter with the best AI use cases).

It reached 25,000 users pretty quickly (in just a few weeks).

I’m astonished by the reaction.
