  20. 20. Email #3 (no response from me) Subject: HubSpot & Close.io ! Hi Steli, ! Per my message today, I called to see how your internal decision making process is going. ! More importantly, since we are going through a price change on 10/1, my manager, John Dukes (jdukes@hubspot.com) has authorized each rep on my team (2) 15% discounts on the cost of the software for customers who are able to sign up by 9/30. Not only would this lower the price of the software, but you will be grandfathered into the legacy pricing in the future. Today, Pro is slated to increase 2400/year. ! One of my coupons is spoken for, but I'd like to offer the other one to you. ! If this is of interest, please let me know as soon as possible. ! Thank you,
  21. 21. Email #4 (no response from me) Subject Should I Stay or Should I Go? ! Hi Steli, per my message today - ! I've tried to reach you a few times to go over suggestions on improving your website, but haven't heard back from you and that tells me one of three things: ! 1) You're all set with inbound marketing and online lead generation, and if that's the case please let me know so can I stop bothering you. ! 2) You're still interested but haven't had the time to get back to me yet. ! 3) You've fallen and can't get up and in that case please let me know and I'll call 911 for you... ! Please let me know which one it is because I'm starting to worry... ! Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing back from you!
  22. 22. Email #5 I responded :) Subject: Thank You From Hubspot ! Steli, ! In reviewing some outstanding business today, I’ll be taking Close.io out of my current follow ups at this time. ! Where we’d initially agreed in the value of our service to strengthen your online engagement, I’ve reached out to you on several occasions following our initial discussions. Having not received any replies to date, I assume that we’ve either fallen off your radar or perhaps the interest has diminished to the degree that my follow up is no longer warranted. !I appreciate the opportunity to work with you and wish you the best with your ongoing marketing efforts. I'd be happy to speak with you when you are ready to invest resources into generating leads from your site. ! Best,
