Find their email. If you don’t have their email, find it. Avoid emailing a generic address like contact@company.com. That’ll guarantee no response. www.getsidekick.com

What questions have they answered? LinkedIn: Look at what companies they’ve been involved in. What skills have they been endorsed for? Personal Blog: Look at their about page and what they write about. www.getsidekick.com

This step uses social media to increase your chances of connecting. Skip this step, if the person you’re trying to get in touch with isn’t active on social. The goal is to make your name look familiar before you hit their inbox. www.getsidekick.com

This is easy to do. Go to their Twitter, LinkedIn, or Quora profile, or their personal blog and … 1. Follow them. 2. Retweet a tweet they’re mentioned in. 3. Favorite their tweets. 4. Respond to open questions they ask. 5. Share a relevant link to their interests. 6. Subscribe to their blog. www.getsidekick.com

Слайд 29

There are three key things to remember when sending the first email: Key 1: Skip the Intro Key 2: Stroke the Ego Key 3: Add Value (Don’t Ask For Anything) www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 30

Key 1: Skip the Intro “Hi I’m Mike Miller. I’m a hard working sales professional.” Don’t do that. It screams cold email. Get to the point of why you’re emailing them. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 31

Key 2: Stroke the Ego. Ego is a core component of what humans crave. We naturally respond favorably to people who help us fulfill it. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 32

A few ways to stroke the ego include: Mention them in association with a respected brand name Tell them you shared their work with others Write them a romantic song (joking) www.getsidekick.com

Key 3: Add Value (Don’t Ask for Anything) Restrain yourself from asking for anything and focus on adding value instead. This is a play on the Rule of Reciprocity which states that we’re all bound – even driven – to repay debts of all kinds. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 36

Here are 4 examples to add value to your email: 1. Share their company, product, or content with others on social media. 2. Feature or mention them in an article you write. 3. Share a high quality article or book on a topic of interest. 4. Introduce them to someone they would find valuable. www.getsidekick.com

Now’s the time to ask the person for what you wanted this whole time. There are six keys to make this email successful: Key 1: Size Matters Key 2: One Email, One Outcome Key 3: Get Specific Key 4: Small Asks, Then Big Asks Key 5: Do The Work For Them Key 6: Get the Timing Right www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 40

Key 1: Size Matters The moment someone opens an email, they scan it and decide whether or not they want to deal with it. The longer it is, the higher the chance they’ll delete it. Keep the email as short as possible. Revise brutally and cut out anything that’s unnecessary. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 41

Key 1: Size Matters Hey Brian, I loved your post on Building Growth Teams. I shared it with 3 other friends that I know are facing similar challenges and they all said they immediately subscribed to your blog and even read more blog posts from you. Your’s and Seth Godin’s writing have been very influential on my own work. I can’t express much I’ve learned from you and I’m looking forward to more of your work. There are two other really incredible posts on team building I read recently that you might be interested in. Creating High Performance Teams on Harvard Business Review and A Study of The Top 1% Team done by a researcher at Stanford. I hope you enjoy! What are you currently working on? Let me know if there’s anything I can do for you. Would love to keep in touch. www.getsidekick.com

Слайд 43

Key 2: One Email, One Outcome Keep the email highly focused. If you ask for multiple things, you’ll get nothing. Ask for one thing. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 44

Key 3: Get Specific Get as specific as you can with your ask. Generic or broad asks create work for the other person. Compare the following: “My startup is a SaaS product for marketers. What should my marketing strategy be?” “My startup is a SaaS product for marketers of SMBs to help them capture more leads. it costs $100/month to start. I’m trying to decided between content marketing and paid acquisition as a channel. What do you think the pros/cons of those two channels would be in my case?” www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 45

Key 4: Small Asks, Then Big Asks The smaller the ask, the more likely you’ll get a response. As your relationship develops, you can comfortably ask for more. www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 46

Key 5: Do The Work For Them Do as much work as you possibly can to make it easy for them to give you what you’re asking for. Take for example, asking to meet in person: “When and where could you meet for half an hour?” “How is next Tue/Wed/Thur at 4pm at your office, or the Starbucks down the block from you?” First example = instant delete. In the second example, date, time, and location are chosen and convenient for them. They just need to say, “Let’s do Tue 4pm at my office. See you then.” www.getsidekick.com  


Слайд 47

Key 6: Get the Timing Right Once you’ve taken care of keys 1-5, you need to time your email. Data shows that sending in the evenings will optimize your chances of receiving a reply because: 1.  If your email is part of the day-time bunch you’ll be filtered out. 2.  Most emails get read within an hour of being sent. When will they be in their inbox? Lunch time, commute home, dinner time are bad times. www.getsidekick.com
