A Magic Email For When a Prospect Doesn’t Return Your Calls

Happy New Year everyone!

I have been reading Chris Lytle’s book “The Accidental Sales Manager” this month and it’s a great read.

I came across this email he uses after repeated attempts of getting a hold of a prospect. Here it is verbatim:

Subject: Quick Question


I still have you on my ‘waiting for’ list of people I’m expecting to hear from. Am I still on your radar?


Short, sweet and to the point. I love it!

I had been trying to reach a Sales VP for quite some time and had left multiple emails. I used this “magic email” and got a response on Thursday. Was it favorable? No because the Sales VP is switching jobs. Effective? Yes! I can move this company out of my pipeline and move on to other deals.

Will this work every time? Does anything?
