Quick Question

What's the best email "subject" for getting a response after being ghosted?


I have some luck with "Quick Question" but interested to hear what others are using.

"Got your voicemail." And it's referencing that 'you' tried them and got their voicemail and left a message. Used best as a 'one off' after a call blitz (for net new or re-engagement). It has a high open and reply rate bc they think you are responding to a voicemail 'they' left.Β Β

"todays chat" And use the body to get a quick yes or no. I also blame the fact that we haven't connected on me instead of them

Assuming you mean blaming it on myself?Β 

I typically say: sorry β€œname” things have been hectic so I wasn’t able to get in touch with you. If you’re still open to discussing ABC my calendar is open next week.Β 

i’ve heard it best explained as when you keep missing calls from your grandma. you love your grandma but sometimes you don’t wanna have that conversation because you’re busy. The more calls you miss the more you feel guilty and the more you avoid it. if grandma texted you that she’s sorry she hasn’t reached out it shifts the blame to her and off of your guilt so you’re more likely to apologize back and call her. Does that help πŸ˜‚
