  18. 18. Think of it this way.
  19. 19. Every tracked email is a seed waiting to grow.

  30. 30. The same is true when prospects interact with your emails
  31. 31. Just be sure your emails aren’t product pitches – provide links to helpful content instead. Hi Sam, Pleasure chatting today. I thought I’d quickly followup with some additional resources for you: - LINK TO HELPFUL RESOURCE - LINK TO HELPFUL RESOURCE Best regards, Mike
  32. 32. Now it’s time to use this context in a sales call.
  33. 33. 3OPEN with context.
  34. 34. Here’s an example roleplay of how this sounds in action.
  35. 35. PART 1 [Sales] "Hey John, this is Mike over at Culture Company ... am I catching you at an alright time?" [Prospect] "Wow, Mike, I was actually just reviewing the email you sent over earlier. Great timing." [Sales] Excellent, I will be brief. I noticed you were checking out some of the information around the link I sent on improving company culture. Wanted to circle back and see if there was anything you had questions on, or if there was further information I could point you towards that would be helpful ...
  36. 36. PART 2 [Prospect] "Well, we started by eliminating time tracking, and we’re also putting plans in motion to do team lunches on a weekly basis. Its a journey we are taking day-by-day." [Sales] "Interesting ... Many people I’ve spoken with recently are implementing a similar team lunch idea. What they’ve found is by supplementing that with other voluntary benefits, they’ve been able to achieve their goals in much less time. Is there a good time for us to connect this week and I can show you a little more about how we help companies achieve better work/life balance for employees?” [Prospect] "Sure, how about 10 AM tomorrow?"
  37. 37. And there you have it. 1 2 3 Measure Engagement. Call fast. OPEN WITH CONTEXT.
  38. 38. Now you can celebrate.
  39. 39. ... but wait a second.
