Event Follow-up To Find Out Who Is Interested Playbook
Updated: Apr 12
Send an email sequence to leads as their first point of contact following an event such as a customer conference, trade shows, booth visits, webinars, or demos. Use your email sequence to thank attendees and to find out who is interested in your offering. The follow-up emails remind prospects of the event and offer more information to see if the prospect could now be interested or knows someone that may.
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 case studies. Ask for a meeting.
Reminder Email: Remind them that you are available to help. Provide some industry best practices your company has developed that they can learn. Ask for a meeting.
Referral Email: Ask them for a referral if they are not the right person. Provide a company overview that they could share with others introducing your offering. Request they provide the next steps.
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.
