  34. CavemanJive#1: <br />Hello/Dear Firstname:<br />I apologize for popping into your inbox/voice-mail unannounced. I’d much prefer a proper introduction, as I have a client (a Fortune 500 company that’s xxxxx) that would like engage in extended – and confidential discussions – with you. (Or, my company would like to …… )<br />In short, they’d like to find out what kind of opportunity (if any) would motivate you to join their team.<br /> If you’re open to learning more, simply detail a window or two of availability for a brief phone conference and forward an updated resume (all confidential of course). To assure complete discretion and confidentiality, we recommend corresponding via your preferred personal email. I look forward to getting better acquainted.<br />Sincerely,<br />Dennis Smith<br /><br />
  35. CavemanConversation: <br />WHEN LEAVING V-MAIL:<br />-lower the register of your voice. <br /><ul><li> match the pace and feel of the outgoing message.

  44. You are likely the only recruiter to make this many calls on a prospect<br /><br />Marketing<br />
  45. CavemanJive#2: <br />(“no call back”)<br />“Hello/Dear Firstname:<br />I thought I’d give it one last shot. I recently contacted you <br />about an opportunity to (lead a marketing team for xxxx). I realize <br />you must be quite busy and that we get far too much email these days. <br />But I’d hate to have you miss out on an opportunity that may very well <br />be better than what you’re currently enjoying . . .<br />Do you have a moment to discuss?<br />Best,<br />Dennis<br />
  46. CavemanTalk: <br />(“make ‘em want ya”)<br />RELAXED<br />ENGAGING<br />CONTENT: clear, specific, and benefit driven<br />DELIVERY: not even close to perfect (and that’s ok)<br />BOTTOM LINE:  <br />In life, perfect people make everyone else uncomfortable.  If your voice mails sound too perfect, too contrived, and too slick -- then your listeners are more likely to simply delete them.<br />

  48. Nine Ways to Become More <br />Call-back-able: <br />4. Appeal to their inherent helpful nature<br />5. Help people maintain a sense of control<br />6. Deliver (and dangle) value<br /><br />
