Description

In this latest episode of The Only Business Networking Podcast on iTunes, Your host Travis Chappell gives listeners a glimpse of what’s in his free Meet Your Hero course available at travischappell.com. Learn the five elements of an effective message to busy people and find out how Travis has been able to connect with high-level people so quickly.


Episode Highlights:


The five elements of an effective message to busy people:

  • 1. Lead with value - mention something specific about them that impacted you.
  • 2. Give information - you have a limited amount of words, give quick, pertinent info and hyperlink to your site.
  • 3. Build a meaningful request - do not ask to “pick their brain.”
  • 4. Offer credibility - give social proof and have someone’s name or a brand name next to yours.
  • 5. “Thanks in advance” - This subconsciously creates a desire to finish the loop.


3 Key Points:


  1. Always be specific when reaching out to someone busy, they will know if you just copied and pasted info from their site.
  2. Never ask someone if you can “pick their brain” or how you can add value, that just adds homework to their plate.
  3. Always say “thanks in advance” to prompt someone to respond.
