#129 – Teardown: 3 Impossible-to-Ignore Cold Emails

December 11, 2019

Today we have a special teardown episode where we actually replied to all of these cold emails. Let’s not keep you waiting!

Email 1: 

Subject: regarding Emails That Sell

Hi Jack,

Big fan of the podcast you do with Jeremy. Dig your recent teardown for the Outsourced IT Company – so many golden nuggets to use.

My story short: I help aspiring B2B SaaS providers make most of their websites in terms of branding & conversions. My collaboration with Mortgage Vintage based in Newport Beach is a good example of that.

Relating to you, the messaging spread over at could be improved with the use of a few design tweaks. The improvements can be outlined in a graphic mockup that I can craft for you.

Is this something you would be interested in seeing, Jack?


P.S. Your site owns a valid SSL certificate but because you load non-secured images on your site, it does not show as safe for the users; would look into fixing this.

Subject: question about your approach

Dear Jeremy,

I know you’re really busy and that you probably get a lot of emails, so this will only take sixty seconds to read. 

I am a business student and have started “idea extraction” with marketing agencies. It seems like you have been really successful at this, so I figured I’d ask you my single, burning question about that process.

I’m 23 calls in so far, have identified a few major problems that many marketing agencies experience. How do I go deeper with them on these problems so that I can find the source of the pain and find a real solution?

I totally understand if you’re too busy to respond, but even a one or two-line reply would really make my day.

All the best,

Andrew Bass

Subject: Potential Cold Email Outreach with Jeremy & Jack Podcast Guest?

Sent to podcast

Hi Jack, 

Tom Williams Founder of DealPoint, is an expert in buyer-centric selling, specifically surrounding Mutual Action Plans, and how they can make speed up deals, increase pipeline accuracy, and reduce churn.

We’ve been doing some work with Tom and I was thinking he could be a great guest on the Cold Email Outreach with Jeremy and Jack Podcast. 

What does your guest evaluation process typically look like?

Thank you,

Brittany Wideman

These three emails are excellent examples that personalization pays off. It definitely IS worth investing your time if you want to see a Calendly link in your reply. 

Happy cold emailing!

Jeremy and Jack
