I received a well written (except for a spelling mistake but I have no use for a man who can only spell a word one way anyway) and respectful email today from a man I didn’t know and wasn’t familiar with. Here’s the email with some sections blocked out to protect the innocent:
I would like to kindly request a testimonial from your good self for one of my products that I shall be launching very soon. I would sincerely appreciate if you could provide a line or two along with your photo, your website link and a one line bio.
The product is a subscription/newsletter that is focused on personal and business development in this new era of globalisation. It will be marketed under Name of Company with this website: www.mywebsite.com.
I will greatly be honoured if you could consider providing me with a testimonial as mentioned above and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I shall look forward to your reply with great anticipation.
Peter (named changed)
What’s wrong with this type of Direct Outreach? What did Peter do wrong? What should have Peter have done to achieve his goal? I’ve been talking about this for so long I’m asking you because I want to see if anyone is actually listening 🙂
Much love to you this fine day. Keep on getting booked solid!
