Many people ask us for some examples of sales emails, so these are some templates that will work for your business. They will allow you to find interesting leads/prospects to start on the right foot. We have to admit that all businesses have different ways of promoting themselves.

Some focus on promoting a product on the web. Others pick up the phone on do it verbally. But the following examples of sales emails are undoubtedly a good starting point and interesting sales tool for most of you.

Before we begin, let’s talk about the art and science of an effective email campaign.
Regarding the subject that you’ll use for your sales email, respect these elements:

  • Use your contact name, when it makes sense.
  • Be as specific as possible in your subject line. The more personal the subject, the higher the opening rate will be.
  • If you’re wondering if it doesn’t look too much like a prospecting email, then it is, and your prospect will feel it straight away.
  • Try to put a question in the subject line of your email.
  • Always indicate, what you promise (if the difference is too large, you will get good open rates, but poor response rates).

Your main objective is certainly to create the first contact by email because it is easier and simpler. However, your email template must be seen as an email that will present your business, with a real personal touch. Otherwise, there is no chance people open it.

Below are 4 email subject lines that get an opening rate of + 35%

  • 1) “[introduction] [name]” or “[introduction] [your name or your company name] <> [your name or your company name]”.
  • 2) “A quick question”
  • 3) “Try to contact you”
  • 4) “[Name of your company]”

Nowadays, there are two types of business contact emails

  • Either you write to a manager in the organization to direct you to the right person (better known as Cold Call 2.0)
  • Either you write to the decision-maker trying to organize a sales meeting, a call, etc.
