I really enjoyed chatting with you earlier today and learning more about how you [role] at [company]. I understand the issues you’re encountering with [challenges discussed in conversation] and how they make it harder to [impact on team or company].
As mentioned, I’ve attached more information about our resources and how we can help you boost [business objective] and solve [business problem].
Just because you follow up with your prospective clients once doesn’t mean they’ll respond. However, that also doesn’t mean you should give up. By sending more follow up emails – in situations where you feel it’ll be worth it – that are simple, short, and useful, you might just get that response you’re looking for. Persistence pays off when it comes to sales follow up emails.
I wanted to get in touch to see which of the 10 Ways you’re using to boost your sales team’s productivity [details of content sent in first email]. If you haven’t implemented these techniques yet, I’d love to help you get started. Are you available for a 30 minute call on [date and time]? Just let me know what works best for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
I know how busy you must be managing your team and helping them increase sales [job function].

Here it is again [insert hyperlink here] in case it got lost in translation. Would you have time for a call on [date and time] or [date and time]?
Let me know what works best for you, or if you have any conflicts with those times. I’d be happy to work around your schedule.
Note: If your prospect does want to set up a meeting, you can save time and use HubSpot’s Meeting Scheduling Software so your prospects can book time on your calendar
Still nothing? Don’t be discouraged. Remember: 80% of sales require at least five follow ups. So here’s a fourth follow up email template.
I’m sorry we haven’t been able to connect. Last time we spoke, you seemed very interested in boosting your sales productivity [objective]. Again, I know how hectic things can get between work and personal life.
I would be available for a call during weekends or before or after work hours if that’s easier for you. I don’t mean to bug you, but I do want to help you manage your team so you can exceed your sales goals [objective].
Use Case 8: After Several Follow Ups . Time For The Break Up Email
However, it’s still important to “break up” with your prospect in a professional way that leaves them feeling positive about you and the company you work for, even if they’re certain they won’t be doing business with you at this time. Who knows – they may refer you to someone else and/or want to reach out to you in the future.
