    Never tried a cold email. I just write emails with sale messengers, number discounts and CTA button :D . It still gets inquiries but not really effective way. Your article is good but it is not easy to make it successful.

    @Didier Aubin, it is definitely not easy to convert clients after sending out cold emails. It may take a few tries. But being able to build relationships is important. I think another key element to sending out cold emails, whether it be to gain clients or to create awareness/get press, is to show that you actually understand what it is the person you're emailing does for a living or what their interests are. 

    For example, if you're sending a press release out about a new digital tool that helps with inbound marketing, look for journalists who have covered the topic before and written about similar topics. Read over one of their articles and let that person know you have read their work and link to it in your email. That way you are building a relationship and also letting them know why you're targeting them.

    We have had success with cold emails and I agree with Ryan. It is about knowing your target market and offering something that is relevant to them. Personalisation is key. Don't spam people with useless information.
