It is all about mixing it up. Hit them with an email then voicemail the same day, follow up email a few days later, LinkedIn request on the week mark. Let them know your info, what your voice sounds like, and what you look like (aka you are a real person) as quickly as you can IMO

Shows them that you're a real hustler which increases trust. Nice

Exactly! Also lets them know that you are a real person and not a marketing bot trying to get them with automated emails

Cold calls. I still hate them though.

How do you separate yourselves from the comp in an email? We did a training for messaging recently form a 3rd party. Conversion/reply still low.ย

Dealing with pay-per-performance campaigns, I will send over their performance stats and outline problems they didnt know they had. This usually opens the conversation up and allows for more discoveryย

People want what their neighbors have. My strategy is why fly in for a meeting just to fly out. The beauty is no matter the industry and depending on age of company there are usually prospect clusters and reference customers around. I have my prospect, customer reference and material ready. I stop in and ask for DM (researched beforehand) or have an SDR book more meetings while I'm in Market, with the we have a specialist in area this week (super hot selling point lol). Then I reference my nearby customer or talk about me being in town for prospect that is very similar. I don't name drop prospect I let them guess and won't confirm or deny. They know, I know they know, and it worksย

I would say use all 3 at once until you get to the no or yes. Cold call, email, and LinkedIn request/message

Yes, that'd be ideal but I just don't want them to think that I am being pushy

My SDR team has noticed that their open/reply rates have dropped massively in the last 2 months. Any advice on how to boost the email conversion rate?

For all you mail mergers out there, do you see more success emailing one DM or all DMs on a custom thread? I've noticed that putting all relevant DMs on one campaign that is 100% customized to their business has a much higher response rate (28% meeting sucess)
