On making emails more actionable to potentially boost response rate.

What does it take for your recipient to reply?

- think of a response

- type it in

- send


I think most of us would agree that our recipients are generally too busy to distract their current thought process and think of what they should reply to you with.


Why not give your recipient suggestions about what they can reply to you with?

How to reach decision makers in large companies?

I'm the CEO of Skyrand Technologies. We provide software development services and data services to AI companies.


Most of our clients are early stage startups and it's fairly possible to reach the decision maker in a small company.


When it comes to big companies like Microsoft, Google etc, it becomes impossible to get in touch with the decision maker. Personall...

Hi Kartheek,

Thank you for the inputs.

Answering your first question, I usually keep the mail/message very short and crisp. From my experiences, when I send too much information people don't tend to reply to my mail. I'm not sure if it's the right thing though.

Is there any other channel apart from LinkedIn that I need to look at?

Seeking advice

Greetings! Hope you lovely people are doing fine during these troubled times.

I have a question to those who work with SaaS subscription-based products: what's your best strategy for asking your customers to switch from monthly to annual-based subscription model? Sure, there are obvious advantages like cost savings, but maybe you have any ideas on what else ...

Agreed with Tom and Tyson. If you don't already offer this today, you could offer license transfer within the organization to further derisk the upfront attainment of an annual license

How are all the salespeople holding up during this crisis?

As a salesperson, we naturally want to get out, meet people, say hi, and in general move. Being cooped up is not in our nature. Alas, here we are doing video calls to get some piece of human interaction.


What are some things you all are doing? Anybody doing masterclasses or anything?

Getting organised, rethinking strategy, making new connections, calling friends and family, reach out to people I haven't been in touch with, virtual coffee or wine with a friend (depending on time), sometimes I mediate, light movements, etc.

Hello Bravado

Been active on LinkedIn for a while, but new to this platform.


A little background on me:


I've been in outbound sales for 3 years and some change. Spent the first half of that banging my head against a phone but have shifted my focus to enterprise sales. Currently helping marketing teams streamline photo / video production while also providing more paid gigs t...

To my people in advertising

What industries are you noticing still advertising, or ramping up advertising during this time? I've noticed meal delivery kits ramp up ad spend, and at home office kits (standing desks for example).

Predicting Churn in Salesforce & Hubspot

Not sure if this is cool, but most salespeople would find this shameless self promotion forgivable 😉. We're offering free churn propensity analysis in Hubspot & Salesforce using our AutoML tech featured in Forbes, Forrester yada yada. Would you be so kind as to 👍 on LinkedIn?

Your message will work better when you focus the message on the problem you solve. Telling people about your company or want you want (to talk to the doctor) makes it very easy for whoever answers the phone to say no.

Here is an article that references 4 top problem chiropractor's face. It took me 3 seconds to find that article. Soooo, focus on one ...
