Do you get disappointed when you email a prospect and get an out-of-office message in return? Those messages are full of useful information, as Matt Benati points out in a recent HubSpot article.
Achieving sales emails perfection is an art form, one that you must master. You’re not only trying to get your emails seen and responded to, you’re also taking a risk of scaring potential clients off for good.
Apologizing is an art form that is the backbone of customer service when things take a turn for the worst. Yet, many people don’t know how to effectively apologize to their customers, therefore potentially jeopardizing that business relationship.
Have you ever taken the time to edit your sales emails before you click send? Not just reading it over once for spelling and grammatical errors. Rob Reinalda, writing for Ragan, says that if you’ve edited your message correctly, you’ll have cut at least a few sentences in half.
Prospect not picking up the phone? Client giving you the cold shoulder? First, don’t panic; you won’t be the first salesperson to be ignored. Then, consider how to react.
Take away the telephone and you’d have a tough time doing business. Is this sales tool so vital that you take it for granted?
“Sorry, to bother you…” How many follow-ups have you begun with this phrase? You may be surprised that it’s a phrase you should actually avoid.
When I got the message below from Daniel McLellan, I had to share it with you.
If you’re sick of writing, “Just Checking In,” as the subject line of every outreach email you send to clients, guess what; they’re probably just as sick of reading it.
Stop pestering and start profiting. Do you want to differentiate yourself, stand out and rise above the noise?
When was the last time you updated your customer service plan? If your response was a scoff thinking that your service plan doesn’t need updates, think again.
Cold emails can go nowhere. Or, they can transform into hot leads. Are you doing what it takes to make those leads happen?
