Drafting the Perfect Outreach Email

To create a perfect marketing campaign, it is vital that you understand what appeals to your target audience and how they would react to certain features provided by your company.


To create a perfect marketing campaign, you must understand what appeals to your target audience and how they would react to certain features provided by your company. The best way for this purpose is through an email marketing strategy which involves sending promotional emails, newsletters, or other types of messages directly into the inboxes of potential customers

Why Email Marketing Is the Best Way to Go

With email, you have a direct line of communication with your customers. You'll build relationships with your customers by sending them relevant information about your brand and its offerings as well as interesting content from other companies. This will allow them to get to know you better and become familiar with what makes you unique—and ultimately more likely to purchase from you because they trust who's behind those emails!

If done right, this strategy saves time spent writing out long emails (which means less time spent reading through irrelevant data) while also saving money since there aren't any additional printing costs involved!

Personalize Your Email

Personalizing an email is one of the most important things you can do when reaching out to someone. It’s a simple way to make your contact feel like they matter, and it shows them that you care enough about them to put in the extra effort. The best way to personalize an outreach email is by using their name, title, and company name (if applicable). This will show that you took the time to research them before sending over your message.

Subject Line

The subject line is your first chance to grab the recipient's attention and should be short, sweet and to the point. A good subject line will tell you why you're writing this email in just two or three words—and it should make you smile when you write it, too.

Like all good writing, the best subject lines are compelling without being overly long or complicated: they'll make sense on their own without having to read any further into the message. This can be challenging at first (especially if you're new to email outreach), but here are some general guidelines:

●     Avoid using "hey" or "hi"

●     Avoid using "please" or "thanks."

The first sentence.

The first sentence is the most important part of your outreach email. It’s where you make an impression, so make it count. You must hook the reader and give them a reason to keep reading. Make it clear what you want from them, and what they will get from you:

●     What do they stand to gain if they help? (e.g., free tools, discounts)

●     What do I stand to gain by doing this? (e.g., exposure on their website)

Removing background noise.

Don't be surprised if the reader is distracted by the background noise. They might not even be able to tell what your message is about, so make sure you cut out anything that's not necessary. The shorter and sweeter, the better! When crafting your outreach email, keep in mind that people don't want to read a novel—they just want answers to their questions as quickly as possible. People spend so much time reading other people's emails that they've become accustomed to being concise and efficient when communicating online. So, make sure yours follows suit by removing all unnecessary content from your message.


Now that you've written your subject line and preview text, it's time to get down to business. While the content of your email will vary depending on the purpose, there are some general rules of thumb to keep in mind.

●     Don't overdo it with links. You don't want people opening their inboxes and seeing a wall of links; instead, try and keep them around three or four at most. This way they won't feel overwhelmed by all the options in front of them!

●     Make it short and sweet (but not too sweet). In general, shorter messages tend to work better than longer ones because they're more likely to get read quickly without any hesitation from readers.

Being personal.

In your outreach emails, you should be personal!

●     Start with a salutation that is personalized to the recipient. "Dear[Name]" is usually sufficient.

●     Use their name in the subject line too: "Re: [Name] - [Topic]". This helps ensure that they read it right away and don't forget about it later on when there's more noise coming in through their inboxes. Remember that people tend to prioritize emails based on what stands out first (i.e., if someone has mentioned me by name in an email subject line, I'll probably think twice before deleting it).

Finally, I've found success by including my own signature block as well—it shows I care about what they do and just want to help.

Call to action.

A call to action is a phrase that prompts your reader to take an action. For example, “Click here” is a call to action. An effective call to action should be specific and clear for the reader: What do you want them to do? You can also use numbers like “Share this with 4 friends who would benefit from this article.”

A great way to write a call-to-action is by asking yourself what you want out of each piece of outreach you send. When writing outreach emails, they must have clear goals tied to their purpose (which we'll talk about next). If multiple people are receiving the same email, make sure that each person has different tasks if possible because then each person feels more involved with getting responses back.

Tracking your outreach emails using UTM parameters.

As you begin to send out your outreach emails, it's important to track not just their success rate but also the individual variables that affect it. Utilizing UTM parameters will allow you to analyse each piece of information about a given email campaign as it goes out into the world.

UTM parameters are tags added at the end of URLs (e.g.,// that give Google Analytics additional context about where traffic is coming from and what action that visitor took on your site, allowing for more accurate reporting and analysis across different channels (Facebook ads have different reporting requirements than organic search). A sample set of UTM parameters might look like this:

●     utm_campaign- The name of your campaign or promotion, e.g., "Google AdWords" or "Facebook Ads." If there isn't a specific name for this campaign—or if you're tracking multiple campaigns at once—you can simply use "OutreachEmail."

●     utm_medium- The method by which someone discovered your ad or link, e.g., social media(Twitter) or PPC (Google AdWords). If there isn't a specific medium involved in this outreach email—or if you're tracking multiple types of outreach together—you can simply use "Email."

●     utm_source- The source from which traffic originated, e.g., Twitter (#hashtags are often useful here). If there isn't an obvious source for this outreach email—or if there wasn't just one channel used when sending out these emails—then again, just stick with something generic like "Outreach Email".

Build a qualified mailing list, write a compelling email, and track the effectiveness of your efforts!

The first step to building a successful email outreach campaign is, of course, building a qualified mailing list. To do this, you'll want to create a sign-up form that asks your recipients for their names, company, and email addresses. This information will allow you to group your contact's into segments based on how likely they are to respond based on their job title or seniority level within the company.

Once you've built up an initial list of qualified contacts, it's time to write some emails! Your goal here is simple: convince each recipient that they should read and respond positively to what you have written by providing them with enough information. The best way we've found for doing this is by starting each message with an introduction that answers questions like "Why am I contacting them?" and "How can my product help solve their problems?"


In the end, it all comes down to making sure you have a great topic and content for your outreach emails. You need to understand how your audience interacts with their inboxes so that you can craft compelling messages that will get them to engage with what you’re offering. Lastly, always be sure that the message gets across quickly.
