Step 1: Define your target audience

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to accomplish it:
Step 2: Do some research
Once you've determined who you want to contact, it's time to get to know them better. What do they talk about? What are their goals? What are their most pressing challenges? These are the components to which you will refer in the email copy. Find them on LinkedIn, in Facebook groups, and among your friends. Also, before you begin writing, do some reading and conversing. Then, enter the contacts into a spreadsheet or use a prospecting tool to identify the correct contact information. It's not about making thousands of unrelated contacts. There are around 100 decent ones.
Step 3: Write a customer-focused email copy
This is the time you've been waiting for. When sending cold emails, there are several guidelines to follow. This is not a newsletter. These are not official statements.
