Introduction of the Best cold email B2b templates

The term “cold emailing” refers to the practice of sending an email message to a target professional prospect without having had any previous contact or engagement with them and without them having requested it. 🥶

When utilized incorrectly, cold emailing causes marketing pressure and might result in deliverability issues. It is frequently used in B2b prospecting strategies. However, it shouldn’t be mistaken with other cold reach practices, like “cold calling“. 📞

Cold emailing, in short, is when you send an email to someone in order to create a connection with them. The purpose of these emails is to build a relationship with the prospect. 🤝

So try not to scare them away, haha! 😂

Why use cold prospecting email templates?

If you’re looking for where to start your B2b prospecting, then let me give you a hint… 💡

Use your LinkedIn connections, of course! 👏

LinkedIn is your biggest ally when trying to connect with B2b customers, since it’s the biggest professional network out there. You need to make the most of it. 💰

For this, you can start by scraping the emails of your LinkedIn connections in order to create a mailing list that you can grow little by little. 🐣

If you want the emails from your LinkedIn friends, the process is very simple!

But I’m not a developer and I don’t know how to scrape data, you say 😥. No need to panic! I’ll teach you how to scrape LinkedIn in just a few simple steps using Waalaxy:

  • Begin by downloading Waalaxy from this link, (if you haven’t done so yet).
  • Go to LinkedIn and select “My Network” followed by “Connections.”
  • You’ve arrived to your relationship’s page. Click on the Waalaxy button in the upper right corner of your browser (if might be hidden when you first download it, so make sure to pin it using the “puzzle icon”),
  • Then click on “Create,” then select the “Number to import,” and lastly “Validate/confirm.”

Once the profiles have been exported in Waalaxy, all you have to do is download the information from your contacts in a CSV file from the Waalaxy CRM:

  • To access it, click “Open Waalaxy” from your extension to log into your CRM.
  • Select the newly created prospect list by clicking “Prospects”, in the left hand menu.
  • Click the “Import” button, then “Import CSV file” to get the file with their information.
  • You’ll get a CSV file with the first name, last name, email address, company, position, LinkedIn premium status (if applicable), geographical area, LinkedIn profile link, and phone number.

I told you this was an easy method of exporting emails, didn’t I?! 😉

How do you write a cold email for B2b sales?

We’ll have a look at 10 templates for lead generation, and explain the key points to keep in mind, in order to write successful cold emails: 👇

1. Use an eye-catching subject line. 👀

Since the subject line is the first thibf that your prospect will read, you should spend half of your email time writing and A/B testing alternative subject lines. You want to create an intriguing subject title, but you also want to avoid sounding too spammy or sales-y.

2. Add a tempting deal. 🤑

Give your customers a reason to respond and a straightforward call to action. For example, “Find out how to get 100% of your customers via inbound marketing,” who wouldn’t want to know that?

3. Copywriting that is as personal and natural as possible. 🌱xxx

Make use of personalized emails and give suggestions to the reader, instead of sounding too pushy. Proof-read your copywriting before sending your cold email in order to ensure that it has a natural and laid-back tone.

4. Back up your words thanks to social proof. 🌟

Remember that nobody wants to be the first user of a product/service that lacks reputation… 😓 Mentioning your social media, contact info and if possible a link to your online reviews reduces the risk of scaring off potential customers.

Without further ado, here are the best cold email B2b templates I promised you! 🤗

How do you write a good cold sales email?

Here are 10 more B2B cold email templates, using several marketing methods. 🤓

Such as the AIDA method, that we’ll explain below: 👇

  • “A” for Attention, to attract the attention of your target.
  • “I” for Interest, to relate to their interests and keep them engaged.
  • “D” for Desire, to arouse desire by showing how they will benefit from your offer/product.
  • And finally, “A” for Action, to request that they click, respond, or purchase.

The ultimate aim is to get a response! 💥

It succinctly summarizes the sales process, outlining the path from catching someone’s attention to encouraging them to act. 🦾 The AIDA formula is used in almost every cold email, landing page, or advertisement you ever see (in different variations).

Before And After GIF

You can also apply the BAB email formula below: 👇

  • “B” for Before, to describe the present issue or problem that your target is dealing with.
  • “A” for After, to draw a picture of the problem being solved or the situation being better.
  • “B” for Bridge, to show how your solution solves the problem and improves your prospect’s life.

Our motivations, as well as the motivations of any potential customer, derive from two primordial drives: 🏃

  • Looking for pleasure,
  • Or, Pain avoidance.

The before-after-bridge method uses incentive to build appealing B2B cold emails that get results. It pictures your product as beign a way of procuring the “pleasure” that the customer is looking for. 😊

Take a look at the following cold email templates, and apply them to your activity! 💼

Hello {{firstName}},

Nice to join your network. Did you know that, after managing administrative tasks, finding new clients is the main issue for freelancers?

Most rely on word of mouth and platforms.

The problem?

They don’t really have control over word-of-mouth and no way to differentiate themselves on platforms (which force them to lower their prices).

There is a 3rd way: prospecting.

I am attaching a tool that allows you to contact 100 qualified prospects per week. For free. In less than 10 minutes per day.

I hope it will help you.

How to write a cold email for a partnership?

To continue with the different email copywriting formulas that you can use for your cold email templates, ❄️ here are a couple more that can be very helpful when building new relations and partnerships with your potential clients.

Here’s the PAS email formula: 👇

  • “P” is for Problem, to emphasize a problem that gives your prospect pain point or irritation.
  • “A” is for Agitate, to explain what would happen if the problem keeps going.
  • “S” is for Solution, to give a better way to alleviate/avoid the suffering caused by the situation.

The BAB formula that we saw earlier takes a positive point of view, whereas the PAS formula takes the opposite approach. 🙃 The “avoidance of pain” drive is then used to get a reaction from the prospect.

Animated GIF

Lastly, we have the SAS email method: 👇

  • “S” is for Star, to introduce the star of your story. It may be you, a customer, or other companies or individuals.
  • “A” is for Arch, to describe the path of the star, who is — or should be — confronting a similar problem as the one that your lead has.
  • “S” is for Success, to explain how the star comes out on top or is better off in the end (of course, referencing your own product/service).

People love storytelling. 🥰 We rely on stories to educate, caution, and entertain us. All of our senses light up when we’re immersed in a tale, we are moved by the words we read and identify with the characters we encounter.

Therefore, the SAS technique helps to boost your cold email template by creating a story around your product. It’s especially effective with cases studies and success stories from your buyers! 🚀

Below you’ll find 10 more templates, that you can use immediately for your B2b email prospecting. 🕺

FAQ of the Best cold email B2b templates

How to write a cold call sales email?

These are the key practices for writing the best B2b sales emails: 💫

  • Instead of using your company’s name, the cold emails should come from a person. Cold emails are all about creating human relationships with prospects, and the “from” address is one of the first contact information you give. 🤲
  • Once again, the subject line of the email should be eye-catching. Subject lines are your greatest opportunity of getting someone to read or even respond to your email, so think about them carefully. ✍️
  • You should add a brief body content on the inside of the email, it’s basically your elevator pitch. Like I said, nobody has the time to read a book. You should be able to simply express the benefits of your offer/product without too much blablabla! 😖
  • You may develop trust with your prospect by listing any large clients you have that your prospect may know, in addition to actually caring about their goals. You might also mention having a large number of buyers. 🎯
  • Make sure your email has a clear call to action. Tell your prospect exactly what to do next, and make it as simple as possible for them to do it. Do you want them to test a product? Provide them with a direct link to your app. 📣
  • Finally, remember that having only one CTA is part of having a clear CTA. Don’t expect someone to test a product, and then fill out a quizz for you… You need to pick one. 🥇 Having one call to action will help you keep your email brief and clear.

I hope you apply these best practices for all your cold email B2b templates from now on! 🤩

Can you send mass cold emails for B2b?

Of course! 😏 You can use an automation tool like Waalaxy, in order to send mass cold emails for your B2B prospecting.

The cool thing about reaching out to prospects online, especially with automation technologies, is that you can perform multi-channel marketing. 🧨

Indeed, approaching someone just through LinkedIn or via cold email increases the chances of you getting a response, but be careful with stalking your prospect! 🙊 You need to leave some room to breathe as well, so they have to do their own research on your product/service and do not feel harrased by you.

There’s a fine line between being persistant and being annoying! 😬

What we want to do is make many contacts with the appropriate person in order to increase conversion opportunities. In fact, cold emailing is not quite the same as mass emailing. You don’t need to send 10,000 emails a day, because there are some limits if you want to avoid landing on spam all the time! 🔕

Cold email is a sales email, thus you need language to make shorter emails and get right to the point, much like a commercial pitch. In order to create effective cold email campaigns, you can automate somethings like: 👇

  • Sending the same message to many people and creating personalized emails (after you’ve created the initial template, you’ll be able to send it to 100 people without having to create one for each).
  • You’ll be able to create campaigns, in order to send many sequences of emails to follow-up on your prospect until you get a good reply rate from them.

The more channels of communication you use to present yourself and/or your product, the more chances you’ll have of getting an answer! 😘

To summarize, sending brief, highly targeted cold emails to a certain group is an effective way to build new business partnerships and bring new leads for your company. When you pair it with a series of automated follow-ups, you’ve got yourself a powerful lead generation machine! 🤖

Find out what you can do with your leads after launching your first campaign, in this blog post. 👈

PD: After reading all this, you might be wondering if cold emailing is legal… 😨 Well, in theory, yes, if you exclusively use professional email accounts… ✅ However, sending cold emails to personal addresses, on the other hand, is prohibited!

Cold emailing is most commonly done on rented, bought, or “scraped” email addresses, with the gathering technique varying greatly. It can also be done using addresses gathered through email enrichment and/or acquired manually. 👋

So it’s up to you to keep your mailing list as qualified as possible! 🏅
