Send your nice-to-meet-you emails!

Recently, I was reminded of the importance of sending a follow-up email after meeting a potential client at an event. 

It took me about 30 seconds to draft and proofread the message. 

Later the same day, a colleague of the person I met sent a quote request for a significant project. 

While we might not get the order, we’re now on their radar as a potential supplier. 

Here are four tips to consider for your follow-up messages:

  1. Be concise. Short and sweet is best. 
  2. Include something specific from your conversation. 
  3. Offer to connect again for a deeper dive. 
  4. Carefully proofread your message before sending it. 

Follow-up emails are a terrific way to remain top-of-mind and build connections.

Make sure you send one the next time you meet someone new.
