Send an email sequence to a prospect who commented on a social media platform that suggests buying intent. The follow-up emails will include helpful content to inform the buyer and help them accelerate their buying decision. There are four emails in this sequence.
Introductory Email: Introduces yourself and how you enjoyed their comment and agreed with their statement. Then you introduce your relevant offering with a video and ask to schedule a meeting.
Reminder Email: Remind them of your video and provide added value to their comment with relevant content. 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.
