    How many times should you follow up?

  • What do you say to them?

  • Use emotion - increases response rate by 10-15% compared to neutral language

    E-Mail Body: Emotion

  • Hey Johnny, I was reading your online profile. Would you be interested in considering a new role? 0.0, true neutral. A little positivity would boost the response rate.

    Hey Johnny, I was really impressed with the XYZ project you described on your online profile. Would you be interested in considering a new role? 0.35 positive sentiment. Perfect! Its easy to add positive sentiment to an email this is all it takes.

    E-Mail Body: Emotion

  • Hey Johnny, the XYZ project you described on your online profile blew me away dude. Would you be interested in considering a new role?Positive 0.55 sentiment. This will also work better than a neutral email, even if not quite as well as the previous version.

    Hey Johnny, the XYZ project you described on your online profile blew me away dude. I am literally so excited to hear more. Would you be interested in considering a new role?Over 0.9 positive sentiment. This email would be about as effective as a neutral email not bad, really, but not optimal.

    E-Mail Body: Emotion

  • Be brief - but not too brief! 50-125 words is best

    E-Mail Body: Be Concise

    Hey Holly Im a recruiter friend of Johnny Campbell, whom I believe you shared a dorm room with back in the day!

    The experience you detailed with Social Talent on your LinkedIn profile really impressed our Head of Sales and she asked me to reach out to see if you would be open to hearing about how a career with Acme Ltd could take you to the next level.

    Youre no doubt busy but would you be free to spend 10 minutes telling me about yourself this evening at 6 or would you prefer some time tomorrow morning?
