How To Write Cold Emails With Ease
Step 1: Focus On Creating An Engaging Subject Line
The first and foremost important aspect of writing any cold email, is the subject line you use. Fortunately, most of the time when you’re writing cold emails, you have some time and the cold emails aren’t being sent out automatically. This is great! Because it means you can focus on creating the most customized, personalized, and engaging subject line possibly.
Here’s a cold email subject line template or formula for creating a subject line that your prospect will open. “Benefit Desire + Time Period To Accomplish – Objection”.
By plugging in details in your prospect persona or dream customer you can create a variety of impactful subject lines to get your leads attention properly. Consider calling out the name of the lead or prospect, and customizing the subject line as much as possible. This is the most important part of email writing, as it dictates your open rates of all cold emails.
Step 2: Create And Make A Body Copy Personalized For The Viewer
You know what resonates with your audience and prospects best? When you write content that is actually for them. This is why personalizing and customizing your body copy for each individual prospect is key. Sending masses of automated cold emails that you didn’t personally write, doesn’t work anymore.
Your audience has been bombarded by the same generic messaging that doesn’t get their attention. This is why the best email cold outreach strategy includes complete customization of your body copy for every person you will be contacting.
Step 3: Create A Valuable CTA That Calls Their Attention
The CTA (Call To Action) – is the reason your prospect will click to learn more, or possibly book a call with you. Most cold emailers and cold email writers make the mistake of having generic Call To Actions that don’t resonate with your audience. “Book Your Call Now” is to bland and won’t get the CTA clicks and engagement you want.
Try experimenting with using CTA’s and call to actions – that lead with a benefit your customer desire. Such as using, “Drop Those Pounds And Get Fit By Booking An Appointment Now”. Yes, this is a longer CTA, but at least it isn’t boring. And it will get much higher clicks from prospects! Email marketing works, because you use your copy to get your prospect to click your CTA and become a customer.
Step 4: Focus On Their Wants And Needs
No, it’s not about you. It’s about the prospect and what they want. To often when writing cold or warm email copy – email marketer tend to write about them. You can lead with, “I, I, I”. You have to literally lead and use, “You” in the words you’re using, as frequently as possible. Here’s an example of this… Take a look at these 2 sentences…
- “You can get better results now by getting your free call booked.”
- “I know I can get you better results when you book a call with me.”
Which one is going to get better reception from a lead or prospect? Obviously, the copy that uses, “You”, more. Because your audience is thinking about their wants, desires, and problems. You want to tailor and customize your copy to illustrate you care about those things, just as much as they do. Simply, by using, “you” more!
