Mastering personalised email outreach: 4 steps to sending 10x more personalised emails
Personalised emails have been proven to double response rates, but the time and effort required to personalise each email can be overwhelming for sales development representatives (SDRs). However, there's a secret technique that can help SDRs send dozens of highly personalised emails without sacrificing quality or looking like they're using templates. In this blog post, we'll reveal the four steps to creating the perfect personalised email template that allows SDRs to send 10 times more personalised emails per day.
Step 1: Keep it short and relevant
The key to effective personalised email templates is brevity. Our SDRs ensure that their cold emails are concise, rarely exceeding five or six sentences. However, the first couple of lines are where the personalization magic happens. Each personalised element is highly relevant to the recipient and often includes a touch of humour to grab their attention. By keeping the emails short and to the point, SDRs can deliver personalised messages that resonate with prospects.

Step 2: Craft catchy and personalised subject lines
Subject lines play a crucial role in getting prospects to open emails. Our SDRs always create catchy subject lines that are personalised to each recipient. By incorporating the prospect's name or mentioning a specific pain point, SDRs increase the chances of their emails being opened and read. Personalised subject lines demonstrate that the email is tailored to the recipient's needs and grab their attention in a crowded inbox.

Step 3: Avoid the hard sell
While the ultimate goal is to convert prospects into customers, personalised email templates should never come across as pushy or salesy. Instead, focus on building a relationship and providing value. SDRs should aim to start a conversation rather than making a direct sales pitch. By offering insights, advice, or relevant resources, SDRs can establish themselves as trusted advisors and increase the likelihood of a positive response.

Step 4: Customised templates for maximum effectiveness
Personalised email templates shouldn't be a one-size-fits-all solution. Each SDR should create their own templates based on personal experience and targeted market research. By tailoring templates to specific markets and types of prospects, SDRs can ensure maximum effectiveness. These customised templates have been tested and refined, guaranteeing that they will resonate with the intended audience. Unlike generic templates found online, our SDRs have confidence in the effectiveness of their personalised templates.
