Follow Up Email

It’s always a good idea to follow up email that you send for either business,follow up email sample after no response sales or Enquiries. Especially after you have received no response.

But, most people don’t know how to go about it, so here’s some samples and examples for you to blatantly steal and use in your own follow up emails.

Obviously, exactly what you send depends on what you sent before. After all you are following up.

You have to make it so the emails are related.

So choose some theme that is fun and half serious. Here’s a sample of an approach you can take if you get no response to your original email.

“We’ve been huddled around the watercooler biting our nails in the hopes that you would read our email message.

We were hoping you would be galvanised into action or at the very least send a very nice polite reply.”

Or another example:

“Thank you for not sending a profanity laden response to my last email, at the risk of receiving one today I thought I would follow up and see if you had a chance to…”

Now, you *might* be thinking that this isn’t for you because it’s OMG! NOT PROFESSIONAL!

All I can say to that is phooey.

Can I suggest that you consider something.

Most people are very busy, and encounter hundreds or possibly thousands of messages every day all vying for their attention.

And it is so hard to get attention in the first place, never mind the follow up email you need to send, no wonder people get no response.

People are, well, people, everyone likes to have a laugh.  Or even just a chuckle and to get the job done in an efficient way.

So showing you are a real person, who is friendly and with a sense of humour. This can make them want to do business with you more than anyone else.

Grey, stuffy, dusty, boring are all words that you don’t want to be.

If you were at a business sales meeting and you wanted to send a follow up email here’s an example:

“Thanks so much for meeting with me on {the day}, it was great to find out more about the issues that are causing you trouble, though I’m now scared of Poltergeists after that picture fell down in your office.

GOOD NEWS! I have been talking to production and they say that {issue xxx} is no problem.

They can have it ready for you by the end of the month if you order this week. Speak soon.”

Here’s a sample for enquiries:

“Thanks for sending in your enquiry, we’re all thrilled that you reached out to us and want us to help you, actually we all got up and did a little dance.

We’re chomping at the bit to get started so to begin please give us the longtall of it through {this form}.

So excited to be working with you. {the team}”

Writing follow up emails and indeed the initial emails themselves isn’t as hard as it might seem.

Sending email for business sales or enquiries maybe they shouldn’t be so stiff.

Make them more fun and jocular as these examples and samples have shown.
