Outreach emails are like fishing lines you cast into the sea in hopes of a catch. Only the sea is the market and every catch is a new customer.

Not every email will produce a sale, but if you don’t even cast a line, you won’t hook any customers.

And just like how you need good gear to improve your chances of a nice haul of fish, your emails also need good “equipment”. This means eye-catching subject lines, resonant content, and a clear message. So long as your recipients find value in your messaging, your chances of hooking them will skyrocket.

Lastly, the best fishermen know which fish they want and where to find them. Likewise, before you go fishing, you’ll need to know who your ideal customer is and the best persona for you to use. 

Keeping all these moving parts in mind, here are 15 outreach email templates that are effective at helping you hook more leads and capture more deals.

Inbound sales emails

Inbound sales leads are like fish that calmly swim up to your boat. They’re practically waiting to be caught. 

These leads have encountered your brand somewhere or somehow. It could have been via social media, browsing the web, or even a personal word-of-mouth recommendation. 

Inbound leads took the first step by approaching you, leaving the ball in your court to respond. An ideal inbound sales email should answer any questions while also incorporating the following elements:

  • Personalized greeting – Since inbound leads have already reached out in some manner (and hopefully provided their contact info), it’s a good practice to personalize your emails by including their name when reaching out.
  • Reference to the prospect’s interest – If a lead asked specific questions about your product, make sure to answer them.
  • Value and information – You should explain why the product they’re interested in is the best option for helping them achieve their goals. Alternatively, if there’s another product you offer that is a better match, you can suggest that one instead.
  • Clear call to action – What should the person do after getting your response? Would you like them to book a demo or visit your store? Perhaps you can offer them a free webinar about the best ways to use your product? The final line of your email is the perfect opportunity to drive leads to take a specific action.
  • Contact information – You’ll want to make sure your prospects know how they can reach you. That might seem a no-brainer, but it’s still possible to ruin a sale by failing to include your contact info at the bottom of your outreach letter.

You can use inbound sales emails for a variety of goals: lead nurturing, enabling inside sales, invitations to a webinar or showroom, special offers, lead qualification, and more. To speed up your inbound outreach, there are many AI tools for inbound sales and marketing, such as AiSDR

Here are some templates you can use for different inbound scenarios. Keep in mind that you’ll need to re-purpose them to fit your situation.

Outbound sales emails and follow-ups 

If inbound is like fishing swimming up to your boat, then outbound is the opposite – You take your boat to where (you think) the fish are. And just like fish finders can help you locate fish, lead discovery databases make it easier for you to identify leads that match your ICP and get their email addresses.

That being said, cold email outreach is a challenge. It’s akin to casting a line in rough waters and stormy weather. You might catch something, but don’t be surprised if your outbound performance isn’t as high as you expect. It’ll take a bit of trial and error before you land on a style of outbound outreach that converts.

That’s where follow-ups come in. Just like you’d recast a line that still had bait on its lure, you’ll want to send follow-ups to leads you’ve already contacted. In fact, the failure to send follow-ups is one sign that your current SDR performance needs a revamp.

Still, cold outreach won’t be easy since it needs to lead prospects through multiple stages of the customer journey. To nail this task, an ideal cold outreach sales email should cover the following:

  • Attention-grabbing subject line – You could have the most beautiful email copy, but if your subject line doesn’t appeal, your email’s going in the trash. 
  • Personalization – Addressing the recipient by name and referencing their position and company shows you’ve done your homework and are taking potential collaboration seriously.
  • Introduction and value proposition – While it’s important to Introduce yourself, everything in your email should communicate your product’s value and how it can help solve a lead’s pain points. Bonus tip: Don’t forget that your email should KISS (keep it short & simple).
  • Call to action – Think of what you want your prospect to do: visit your website, book a demo, or something else. Avoid any calls that ask them to spend money.
  • Contact information – Like with inbound, make sure to include your contact info at the bottom to save your reader from having to scroll up.

This looks easier than it is. Since outbound corresponds with cold leads, settling on cold email outreach templates that really work isn’t simple. What works for one lead may not work for another.

But to get you started, here are several templates that you can re-purpose for your outbound campaigns.

Boost your email conversions with AiSDR

Outreach email templates are a great starting point for executing your sales campaigns. The tricky part is that you can’t just take a ready-made outreach email template and fill in your name and your company. For best results, you’ll need to tailor the template to suit your offerings and your target customer.

Manually customizing one email takes most people 20-30 minutes. Fortunately, you can delegate this to AiSDR and get a mistake-free, hyper-personalized email in seconds. Not only that, but AiSDR can power all follow-ups, replies, and nurturing sequences on autopilot.
