How to Get a Response From Someone That You are Targeting

Every day, my wife Blake and I get tons of messages from people who want something from us.

And we delete 95% of them.

Even with all the communication and technology tools available today, people still choose to send mass messages and emails. But it’s rare for those types of messages to get a response, and they can even hurt your brand and credibility.

If you want to get a response from someone you are targeting — for a sale, to make an investment, or to speak at an event — it pays off to do five minutes of legwork.

The emails we respond to are the ones that are personalized and show that the sender put some effort into the message. If I receive a mass email that doesn’t even have my name in it, I’m not going to respond.

My wife Blake made a video about this which you can see below. If you want more content like this then make sure to subscribe to the Be Your Own Boss Podcast Youtube Channel where Blake and I teach you how you can be your own boss.
