Follow Up Emails After Initial Contact [2 Templates]

Follow Up Email Templates

The best sales outreach efforts don’t exist in a vacuum. Instead, they’re part of a strategic, multifaceted approach that spans across a variety of mediums and avenues.

They’re integrated and complementary, and make it easy for your prospect to move forward however he or she chooses to do so.

That sounds great, right? Unfortunately, it also sounds time-consuming.

When a big part of your job is making meaningful contact with as many people as you possibly can, there’s a fine balance to walk between being strategic and integrated, and moving at the speed of light!

Our sales acceleration software lets sales professionals call someone to leave a voicemail, and then immediately send an email related to that first point of contact. It’s a simple and integrated approach that’s proven to be more effective than just a call or just an email, so it makes sense to take the time to do it. Luckily, there are ways to make the process even quicker!

You’re able to save email templates to your Intelliverse Dashboard so you don’t have to spend the time and brainpower drafting individualized, specific emails to every single person you reach out to. Often times, effective sales strategy calls for those individualized, customized approaches, but at first contact, often a simple, straightforward email will do.

Here are a few templates for emails you can save to your own dashboard – one casual, one more professional – that will automatically go out after you make your first phone call to a prospect. All you have to do is fill in the blanks!
