How not to alienate your audience in 9 easy steps
Dying to know how many people clicked the HotOrNot link….
I did! 😂
Great post - helpful guidance. One potential addition for anyone sending a cold email, reconsider sending more than 1000 words in an initial email. Given how much text floods into inboxes these days, keeping an initial outreach brief is helpful and respectful of the recipient’s time.
Love this Adam, my favourite bit is the 'all I ask section'!!!! :) :) :)
One thing I would add: make your point in the first sentence - many people don't read beyond that. Hilarious ending!
« Do what I say, not what I do » 😏. Thanks for Granting understanding 😀
I love it when you let your comedic irony out to play.
Wow, summarized all of the turned-offs in those unsolicited emails and LinkedIn messages that I get. Thanks for calling this out.
Spot on! Love it🔝
a perfect ending to the message of what not to do. Many of us have received at least some of the messages in the closure.Most of us want to help and sometimes we wish we hadn't when we experience the person illustrated in your closure--please send name of dentist.
So helpful. I’m going to share with my new young leaders!
Look forward to your posts!! Listen to your Podcasts and any Podcast I hear that you are on. Thank you
Lol. Well played.
Great read. Seems simple enough to do. Anxiety and stress often cause us to forget our manners and common sense. Taking a second to breathe and reread before hitting send is important.
Love every point and especially the last section. So true. If I may, I might have added one more point which would be to drop the injured and/or arrogant attitude when people don’t get their way after a polite refusal.
Closing by doing everything you told us not to caused me to first feel ‘what the heck?!?’, then open my mind, appreciate the effectiveness of your close, be more mindful of using my two eyes and two ears in better proportion to my one mouth, and brightened and bettered my day! Thanks!
