Hey {{first_name}},

I want to be absolutely sure I have the right contact. If I missed the mark here, I apologize.

If you’ve been busy, but are the appropriate person, could we put a few minutes on the calendar to discuss Outreach in the near future? 

If not, I’d appreciate your passing me along.

Step 16: Hail Mary Email

Some ideas:

Subject: is {{work_phone}} the best number for you?

Hey {{first_name}},

I'm pretty new here and I'm trying to figure out why I haven't been able to get a hold of you. {{account.name}} was identified as a company that would get an extremely high ROI from Outreach and I'm trying to find out where I went wrong.

We're both in sales here and I'm sure you've been in a similar situation where you've done everything possible and still can get the attention of a high-priority prospect.

For my own growth as a salesperson, would you be so kind as to just tell me why you have not responded?

Thanks for any help

{{first_name}}

I don't want to be rude but I have been reaching out for weeks and this is starting to feel like a one-way conversation.

I've researched you and your company, I've called you 6 times, I've left messages, InMails...everything in my power. I KNOW Outreach can be a game changer for {{account.name}}.

Even if you don't have time for a demo, can we at least chat so you can see why I'm being so persistent?

{{first_name}},

I’ve been reaching out to you for quite some time and have yet to hear back. I’m sure you’re either:

1. inundated with projects

2. out of town on travel

3. stuck under a giant boulder

If it’s # 3, let me know so I can send help! To recap, these are the issues we solve:

1. missing revenue goals

2. failure to follow up on leads effectively

3. disparity in rep production

If any of these resonate with you, we should connect! When would be most ideal for your schedule?

Best,

{{sender.first_name}}
