6 Ultimate Cold Email Templates That Convert

Cold email is a challenging approach to grab your next sale, but I’ve fine-tuned several templates that can help with your next outreach campaign. Each template can be tweaked to fit your product or service offerings. Feel free to use these in your next email campaigns, but please adjust the templates to suit your wording and personality:

Simple approach.

This simple approach cuts right to the chase by inquiring into what the client might need. Notice how I mention what problems I can solve for them instead of introducing what I do? Always focus on helping others by solving their problems first.

Innovative video approach.

SUBJECT LINE: COMPANY video insights

Video marketing is continuing to see growth in the industry. Experimenting with video will help increase your click-through rate. Once again, focus on how you can help your prospect. By finishing with a question, you are sparking a dialogue.

Are you noticing these email templates are quite short in length? People do not want to spend all day reading your email, especially if you are just beginning a dialogue with them. Focus on starting a two-way conversation, then sell later in your communications.

Follow-up approach.



Couldn’t help but notice you watched the video demo I sent you there.

Over 81% of businesses never follow up after sending an email without a response. If you took the video approach, try using software that tracks whether someone watched your video, such as Loom. By following up a few days later to check in and provide more value, you will stand out among your competition.

Collaboration approach.

SUBJECT LINE: Collaboration


I noticed we were in GROUP NAME together and think we should collaborate together! Send me a message if you are interested. I bet we could cross-promote to help grow our followers.

If you are not able to find the details of the decision-maker you’d like to talk with, try chatting with the gatekeeper to discover the information. Then when you reach out to the decision-maker, you can use the gatekeeper’s name as a referral. This will help improve your response rate as you’re uncovering contact details.

List-building approach.
