How To Stand Out With A Cold Email

December 12th, 2017

The internet is full of tips on how to cold email when you’re promoting a product or marketing a brand, but what about when you’re selling yourself? When you’re job hunting, there are plenty of tips out there about how to get noticed — and most of them don’t involve submitting a standard cover letter and Word document resume to a generic email address. If you’ve never tried cold emailing before, the process can feel awkward or even invasive, but it doesn’t have to be. Here are our tips on how to reach out to strangers respectfully, plus some techniques for writing subject lines that will get you noticed in their inboxes. Oh, and because email templates make everything easier, I also created some free email networking templates that you can totally copy and paste!

  1. Great tips! I’ve always wondered if I’m approaching companies in a way to make me stand out from others. I’ve sent things by mail, used emojis in the subject line, and even tried making a joke at the end of the email. Going to add in your tips to supercharge the emails. Thanks!
