Alfred (My favorite hail mary template)

Good Afternoon {{first_name}},

 

I'm emailing you as I feel you may be the only person that can help me.

 

Over the past few weeks I have been doing everything in my power to try to earn some time on your calendar. I have Emailed You, Called the Company, Sent Telegrams, Even a Carrier Pigeon. But unfortunately none of it has produced any fruit.

 

Well today I write to you asking for your help. My carrier pigeon has not returned and I fear for his safety! I know what he would have wanted most would be for us to connect! So maybe we can carve out some time? For Him?

 

If you happen to run-across him, please slap a "Return to Sender" sticker on him, he'll know what to do. 

 

P.S. His name is Alfred and he likes crackers.

  

Look forward to hearing from you!

 

Cheers,


💌 Cold Emailing

This is great! Alfred ftw.

I used to photoshop my prospects face from LinkedIn onto Aaron Rodgers throwing hail marys. Sometimes with my face on a safety or corner getting mossed by another DM if I thought the opp was big enough.

Did it take a little too long? Yep. Was it creepy? Yep. Did it have a high response rate? Yep.

In my experience, prospects tend to sneer at this kind of stuff and don’t appreciate the humour but if you’re finding success with this, more power to you!

I don't think it will work in Egypt, prospects may think it's a phishing email.
