If you have an email list you haven’t contacted in a while or are stubbornly refusing to respond, a nine word email is all it may take to turn silence into sales.
What are those nine magical words?
You simply say – “Are you still looking for [insert product]?”.
That’s it. Not a syllable more.
Countless folks have been astounded at how such a tiny message can generate such a huge response.
Its power comes from its brevity and directness. No one could imagine something so brutally abrupt being sent to an entire list. Surely it’s been sent to them only. Ignoring it would be rude.
Try it out and let me know if it works.
