Here is the summary to keep in mind:

1. Think about the email subject

You've got that small space to get their attention.

2. Address the recipient correctly

Take the time to tailor your approach to the person.

3. Connect/relate with the person

Did they attend an event that you did? Is there an article they have posted?

4. Focus on their needs

Needs of a potential client should come first. Then provide your solution.

5. Include call-to-action or question

Why? They keep the conversation going.

6. Add links to ProZ.com profile and LinkedIn profile in your signature

They can click on those links, visit your profile and see you are a true professional.
