business-email-exEmail marketing is a tried and true method for businesses across all industries. With so many different reasons to reach out to someone, it’s essential to tailor your message to the email’s purpose.

These three business email examples and templates will help your company create emails that make a mark:

Welcome Emails

When beginning communication with a new prospect, it’s important to start your relationship off on the right foot. First impressions matter, so be sure to delight your lead and show them just how much your company has to offer.

Welcome Email Example

Autopilot email marketing example

Autopilot’s welcome email is short and to the point while still clearly outlining the benefits their new subscriber will get from joining their email list. The marketing automation software company uses bullet points to get the reader excited about what’s to come. Just because someone has already subscribed to your emails, that doesn’t mean you should stop selling them on the value of your content.

Lead Nurturing Emails

Delighting your prospects and providing them with useful resources should be an ongoing effort. Once someone has opened the door to communication by downloading one of your offers, you can begin sending them relevant content to show the other ways they can benefit from your company.

Lead Nurturing Email Example

Lead Nurturing email example from HubSpot

HubSpot’s lead nurturing email is an excellent example of how to turn a downloaded offer into more opportunities for growth. The email starts letting the recipient know why they’re reaching out, which is crucial so that the reader doesn’t feel like the email is out of the blue. By providing additional links related to the original download, HubSpot successfully caters to the reader’s interests while promoting more of their content.

Testimonial Request Emails

Client testimonials are a fantastic way to show prospects how satisfied your current customers are so that they can learn to trust your company before you even make a sale. It’s unlikely that your clients will provide you with a testimonial without a prompt, so you’ll need to find a polite way to ask for testimonials if you want to receive a glowing review.

Testimonial Request Email Example

Testimonial Request email by ThriveHive

This request for a testimonial demonstrates how to ask your clients for a favor without coming off as pushy. One reason this email is so effective is because ThriveHive makes the task easy, providing a short list of questions to answer rather than asking clients to come up with feedback on their own. ThriveHive also expresses client appreciation before making a request, giving the recipient more incentive to help them out.
