Ways to Write a Cold Email (Part 1)

Make it Personal

Be casual and assume yourself to be in their shoes, because this way you could understand what the prospect would be looking for in a subject line.

Being Personal has worked many times before for many people. The reason behind this is that when a person notices his name or his locality then he would feel a sudden urge to open the email.

Using the name of the person or location of the person are just few methods, here are few more examples –

  1. COOLS: “BYE FELICIA, HI 2016.”
  2. Sam from The Hustle: “I love you”
  3. John Lee Dumas: “Are you coming?”
  4. Bonnie Fahy: “Hey, do you remember me?”
  5. Fabletics: “Your Butt Will Look Great in These Workout Pants”

Don’t Lose them Completely

If your prospect has either lost their subscription or forgot about a particular prescription expiry then make sure to get them back!

The least you want is your customer to go away from you forever. So, send an email to sweeten the deal or to lower the subscription price, etc.

Use these subject lines as an example-

  1. Vivino: “We are not gonna Give Up on You!”
  2. Bonobos: “Hey, forget something? Here’s 20% off.”
  3. Syed from Envira: “I’m deleting your Envira account”
  4. Unroll.Me:  Unroll.Me has stopped working”
  5. Target: “The price dropped for something in your cart”

Use the examples and the tips provided on our previous post (How to Come up with Best Cold Email Subject Line) as well and make the best subject line, which would give even the president the urge to open it!

Remember, the subject line is just one line but it’s the line that matters the most so make it count.
