How to approach professionals?

Just personal advice based on the many messages I receive.

At one point, you may need to contact a professional for the first time without prior knowledge between both of you. Maybe to ask about something, opinion, or advice. This is totally fine but let’s make this an efficient process for both sides, please send 1 message where you will:-

1-     Introduce yourself and where you work briefly.
2-     Give a brief idea about the topic you are working on, and why you think he is relevant.
3-     Ask your question.
4-     Finally, express gratitude.

A couple more things: -
1-     Don’t send this generic message, do some research about the guy first. To make sure he is the right one and to tailor your approach.
2-     Lower your expectations, nothing here is personal, maybe he even didn’t see the message at all.

Good Day Mr. Xxx
My name is Xxx I am working as xxx for Xxx company.
Currently, I am working on xxx and I believe that your expertise in xxx could be very helpful to me.
So from your experience, what I can do about xxx? How I can do xxx?
Thank you for your time.


Follow up, if you didn’t receive a reply on the 1st message, for example:-

Good Day Mr. Xxx
Your time is truly appreciated, and I am aware of its limitation, but I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey Guys,

    Warning: From February 2024, all existing email autoresponders will become obsolete!

    In fact, if you want to send marketing emails, promotional emails, or any other sort of emails starting in February 2024, you’ll need to comply with Gmail’s and Yahoo’s draconic new directives.

    They require regular marketers like you and I to setup complex code on sending domains… and existing autoresponders like Aweber and GetResponse are not helping: they’re requesting you do all the work, and their training is filled with complex instructions and flowcharts…

    How would you like to send unlimited emails at the push of a button all with done-for-you DMARC, DKIM, SPF, custom IPs and dedicated SMTP sending servers?

    What I mean by all of that tech talk above, is that with ProfitMarc, we give you pre-set, pre-configured, DONE-FOR-YOU email sending addresses you can just load up and mail straight away.

    We don’t even have any “setup tutorials” like other autoresponders either, because guess what: we already did all the setup for you!

    All of our built-in sending addresses and servers are already pre-warmed with Gmail and Yahoo and they’re loving us: 99% inbox rate is the average!
