Q: What makes a good cold email?

A: Running a cold email campaign is tough. You don’t have a prior relationship with the potential prospect, so it’s harder to get their attention. To give your emails a better chance of success, using an engaging email subject line is a good place to start. You should also consider using personalization, creating an email list of high-quality contacts, and narrowing down your ideal customer. That means you’ve taken the time to understand their needs and tailored your cold email pitch accordingly. Email cadences are also a big consideration (in other words, you don’t want to bombard buyers with follow-up emails). 

Q: Is cold calling better than cold emailing?

A: There’s no clear-cut answer. Cold emailing and cold calling are both effective ways to connect with new prospects. A cold email strategy is easier to scale and track, while cold calls can deliver a more immediate response.

Q: Need more cold emailing tips?
