    This is simple. I'm going into detail about what I'm offering, but how I get positive responses.

    TALK ABOUT THEIR COMPETITION.

    Talk about what the competition is doing and how they are doing it better. Talk about how you can bring them up to par with the specific strategies that their competition is using. Businesses LOVE this. Everyone wants to beat their competition, especially entrepreneurs.

    The emails were sent at 9 PM at night on a Wednesday to the general email inbox of companies. We just hit our 3rd response. 1 response away from 50% positive response rate, and there's a full business day ahead. Lets see what the work day brings.

    Once I close a sale, I might have to do a "8 emails, $1000 profit" thread like 7878 lol

    Sniper > shotgun approach.

    Yes, most of our clients often say "we want what they got" - so approaching a new client indicating that you are going to get what they got is a very good method.
    make sure to do some basic research about their competition and their strategies, just calling out their name wouldn't do much.

    Sniper approach works for me every time. Get really in depth with your research and what you think they're doing wrong and can do much better, then talk to them about how much potential they have and how much money they're losing. Then present yourself as their business messiah haha

    Yes, if you know you can genuinely help them, you'll have their interest 9 times out of 10

    Very powerful! Something most people wouldn't think about. Instead of explaining to a business how you can make them better, explain to them why other business are doing better! Genius!
    Thanks for sharing

    Very smart approach. Would be interested to see a template of your mail, of course you can remove your niche related content, but that would definitely help the community out here.
