Fortunately, writing an effective follow-up email is easier than it seems. Here’s what you need to do:
Start your message by reminding your recipient of your last interaction
Explain the reason for your follow-up email (get straight to the point)
Entice your recipient to open your message, click on the link(s) you included, and write a reply by offering them a valuable and relevant gift (for example, a case study, a webinar, or a physical product shipped to their doorstep)
Close your follow-up email with a crystal-clear CTA (don’t leave any open ends)
How do you politely send a reminder email?
Sending your client, business partner, or teammate a reminder email doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable experience for either party.
Just because your recipient hasn’t responded to your initial message yet doesn’t mean they’re unprofessional or not interested in what you have to say.
They might have been very busy lately or just forgot to reply.
That’s precisely why you should always send polite and friendly follow-up emails. To do this, you should:
Avoid using the words “follow up” in the subject line
Avoid starting the email with “just following up” or a similar phrase
Provide value by adding context and explaining how you can be of use
Include a specific call to action
Follow up quickly (don’t wait longer than three business days after the first message to send the reminder email)
