Send an email sequence to event leads, such as a customer conference, trade shows, booth visits, webinars, or demos, who are not immediately interested but require nourishing. Use your email sequence to thank, educate, and eventually invite event attendees. The follow-up emails remind prospects of the event and offer more information to inform the prospect on the event topic, which will help them make a buying decision.
Introductory Email: Introduce yourself and thank the attendee for attending the event. Acknowledge what was taught at the event and how you can help them implement a solution. Provide an overview with added resources. Let them know you are here to help.
Reminder Email: Remind them that you are available to help. Provide some industry best practices that go with the theme of the event. Ask for a meeting.
Referral Email: Ask them for a referral if they know anyone that can use your offering. Provide a company overview that they could share with others introducing your offering. Thank them in advance for any referral.
Final Invite Broad Email: Give them an overview of all your services in case they may be looking to solve additional problems they may have that you did not discuss. Let them know they can reach out anytime, and if they are interested, you can send them more best practices.
