Outreach To Connect At An Event Playbook
Updated: Apr 12
Send an email sequence to prospects that you found out will be attending an event and maybe potentially interested in using your product or service due to the event's nature. First, let them know you will be attending the same event and ask them if they would be interested in meeting. Introduce yourself and your service. Follow-up emails will remind them about your invite, suggest times, share best practices, success stories, and content to educate the prospect on your offering and help accelerate their buying decisions.
Introductory Email: Introduce yourself and let them know how you found out they were attending a specific event and that you would like to meet. Introduce your relevant offering and how it applies to the topic of the event. Share case studies to help them see the value of your offering. Ask to meet up at the event.
Reminder Email: Let them know the event is coming up and you would like to meet them. Provide additional case studies that may help out. Ask to meet up at the event.
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. Ask if they know others from their company who may be coming to the event that you can meet.
Final Invite Broad Email: Give them an overview of all your services if they may be looking to solve additional problems they may have that you did not discuss. Let them know you will be at the event, and you hope to meet there. Let them know they can reach out anytime.
