Cold Mailing

 

Cold mailing is the practice of organising email outreach to potential customers that fit your target customer profile, but don't know you yet. The aim of cold mailing is to offer your product/service directly to business professionals that can buy it and use it to solve their problems.

The main steps of organising cold email campaigns are:find the target for cold mailing

  1. Targeting – the foundation of effective marketing. The goal is to find one or multiple target groups of potential customers that you're sure could benefit from the solution that you're selling.
  2. Locating potential customers – the most important step to actually start sending emails, because this means finding clients that fit target groups' defined in step 1. Without prospecting software this means spending hours on Linkedin, google, and using several tools to find contact emails.
  3. Writing your email campaign – this is trickier than most people imagine. It's not just about including important information, all your emails have to be designed – from the subject line to the footer – to catch and hold someone's attention. Cold email campaigns consist of one introduction email and several (usually up to 8) follow-ups. All messages should be kept short, sweet, and address a specific pain that the target customer experiences which you can solve.
  4. get clients by emailsAutomation and performance tracking – when you're sending more than 100 emails per week, automation is crucial to avoid mistakes. A lot can go wrong in organised cold email outreach. Tracking performance (open rate percentage, response rate percentage, email delivery status etc.) is important to be aware of how your campaigns are going, and what might need improvement. Cold mailing is largely about testing and iterating – different subject lines, Unique Value Propositions, customer pains, sending times, target groups – until you find target groups that generates a stable
    number of responses out of each batch emails sent weekly.

You’re organising a cold email campaign. You’ve researched a contact list of several, potentially interested companies. Two things are for sure – you’ve got the right messaging, and you’re writing to the right people. Will it generate cold leads?
