#190 – Teardown: 3 Cold Emails That (Almost) Worked


#190 – Teardown: 3 Cold Emails That (Almost) Worked

February 10, 2021

In this episode we’ll go over three emails in ten minutes.

Email 1:

Stripe billing stack – QuickMail

Hey Jeremy,

I noticed most of your web traffic is outside of Switzerland, but you only offer USD at your checkout

You could increase conversions with a pricing page like this:

With local currencies, you can tweak pricing level to maximize revenue in each market. Higher in the UK/Nordics, lower in Brazil/India.

With Paddle, you can turn on & re-price across currencies in a few clicks for higher conversions globally – at your level of revenue, I’d estimate this would add hundreds of thousands of dollars in ARR for Quickmail this year.

Can I show how we could help?


Email 2:

Text Analysis in 2021

Hey Jeremy,

I wanted to circle back with you because you showed an interest in MonkeyLearn for text analysis but the timing may not have been ideal.

I imagine finding insights into your customer or operational data is still an important project at But let’s be real, continuing to try to do things manually is not time-efficient or cost-effective.

Should we set aside some time to reconnect this week? We can review your text data, goals, and show how MonkeyLearn can help. 

Talk soon,

Riley Maguire

Email 3:

Jack, Is there someone else I should be reaching out to?

Hi Jack,

I wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on the opportunity, but of course I would totally understand if you aren’t interested…..should I take a hint?

To make it super easy for you just choose one of the following canned replies:

  1. Nagajothi, you are slow in taking a hint.
  2. I intended to respond and then forgot. Thanks for the reminder!
  3. Fine, if it takes 10 minutes or less, call me now. Here is my number:____________
  4. Sorry, can’t help, I am too happy, respected and compensated to consider anything else.
  5. I abandoned this email account because I’m getting bothered by too many pesky recruiters 🙂
  6. Other: _______________

If you would prefer I use a different address for you, please mail me on the below email address

Thanks & Regards,
