The key to sending an email that gets a reply is making it crystal clear what you want from your reader.
See if this helps:
Put the work and the thinking
Into your message
So that it’s easy as pie
For your read to write a super easy reply.
If you want an answer to your question
End your email with the question you want answered.
If you want to set up a time to meet
Offer 3 time slots or your meeting link.
This second one bears repeating:
If your email feels like it’s turning into a novel
You might make the entire goal of the email
To get your client on the phone
So you can talk things through.
Regardless of what you send
Make it so that your email has a high likelihood of being read
Which means keeping it to one simple topic
To ONLY one person
And if you do ask for something
Ask for ONLY 1 thing
And make it undeniably clear
What you’re asking for.
