Can Just One Email Instantly Get Clients?

Can Just One Email Instantly Get Clients?
Well... there is no one email that instantly gets clients.
There are, however, plenty of emails that start a relationship that gets you a client, or maybe lots of clients. Even clients for life.
And there is a technique - which we'll look at in a moment - that nets you tons of new clients without ever cold emailing or cold calling anyone.
Let’s talk dating for just a moment…
Imagine you’re a guy walking into a coffee shop. You see the woman of your dreams. You walk right up to her and you say, “Would you like to have s*x?”
What do you suppose are the odds that she will say "yes"? Not nearly as good as the odds that she will pepper spray your face and call the police.
But if you walk up to that same woman and ask if you can buy her a coffee… your chances of success have just risen astronomically.
Wooing a new client is no different. If you send an email that says, “I can totally turn around your crappy business and make you a million bucks by next year if you just pay me $5,000 a month,” you’ll get no response.
Well, you will get some spam complaints, but that’s about it.
But - use your email to open a conversation as a means to build a relationship, and you have a much better chance of success.
When you email prospects out of the blue, be sure to pick a subject they are very interested in, and start a dialog.
It’s all about creating relationships that are strong enough for people to trust you and perhaps even refer you to their friends.
It takes time. You'll hardly ever close a sale with one call, or one email.
People have choices now. The person who calls out of the blue is seen only as someone trying to sell something. Not a friend who stands ready to help.
You want to be the friend, not the cold-calling sales person. This means going on a few ‘dates’ first, building the relationship, and letting them know what you’ve been able to do for others.
You don't have to cold-call anyone anymore. Instead, you’re going to create a powerful lead magnet and distribute it through partner businesses. Your lead magnet and offer combined is a free giveaway to your partner business’s clients.
The offer is something simple, such as, “Call me for more information.” Or “Call me to schedule a free analysis,” or (my favorite), “$500 in free services when you call by this date.”
Who are these ‘partner businesses?’ This will depend on what services you are offering. Ideally, they are businesses that are not in competition with you, but service your ideal customers.
Your lead magnet should be full of great information on what your clients need to do to achieve the results that they seek. But it should not tell them HOW to do it. For that, they need to contact you.
And of course you have captured the email address of every person who downloaded your free lead magnet. This allows you to continue to build relationships with all of them and eventually turn many of them into clients.
I’ve seen this method bring in over 10,000 new people to an email list within a week, result in over $100,000 in sales the first month. Yes, it’s that powerful.
And you never need to cold call anyone!

Press Release comments:

In today's world most prospective buyers research before the buy. No one likes to be sold. Give people information a little at a time, let them do their research, then let them know how you can help them. With my roofing company I did free inspections and gave free bids. This got my foot in the door, I found their prized possession and my buyers did because I truly cared to protect what they valued most. One buyer told me my price was $5,000 more than a competitors yet my company got the job. When you truly care about others needs, the price doesn't matter near as much.Dennis Thorgesen

Great analogy with the woman in the coffee shop. Most people just don't possess the patience to develop the relationship first!Steve Fazia

You have it nailed in one thanks Jonathon; relationship first and sales may follow.Gerald Begg
