📝 3 Cold Email Templates that Worked
Applying for an internship opportunity
Hi Justine, My name is <mention your name> and I'm a senior at UCLA. I'm reaching out to ask if you'd consider bringing on an intern to your team at Canal? I'm really excited about the platform you're building to help brands reach new customers and improve their unit economics. I spent the summcer at a D2C beverage startup, and saw how hard it was to profitably acquire customers on channels like FB and IG. Most of my past internships have been in biz ops & strategy - I'vs handled tasks like collecting & analyzing customer feedback, competitive benchmarking, and designing systems to track core metrics. But I'd love to chip in wherever the team needs help! I'm available for 10-15 hours/week this upcoming quarter (starting mid-sept), and would primarily be working remotely. Happy to share more if you're interested - you can reach me at this email or (phone number). Best Regards, Your Name
Cold emailing for applying job
Hi <Name>, I hope your day is going well! My name is <Your name>, and I'm a self-taught software engineer and open-source hacker. I am very interested in opportunities at <Company name>. Your emphasis on data-driven decision making, connectivity, and customer experience inspired me to apply! What excites me most about potential opportunities at <Company> is that I'm a long-time user of the product, as it's improved my entire workflow. I also admire, use, and am starting to contribute to your modular, open-source projects, such as Nightmare and Metalsmith. I'm currently the Lead Engineer (and first hire, though we're at 8 FTEs and 4 contractors now) of AutoLotto, a startup partnering with states to bring the lottery to your mobile device. That said, I'm seeking opportunities at a more developed, fast-pace team facing interesting engineering challenges building a product that both I use and love. Here you will find my portfolio(attach your Fueler portfolio). Please let me know if there's anything else you need from me. I look forward to hearing back about next steps! Best Regards, Your Name
Writing an email to the founder for an opportunity
Dear Sir, We have been LinkedIn connections for long, and it has always been inspiring for me to be a witness of your growth. What I find very inspirational is your command over business, and as a person wanting to build my own empire, I'd love to marry my skills in marketing, sales and communication and with your genius in business and strategy. The only way to succeed is to do the same thing a thousand times and find another thousand ways to succeed and to fail: this leads to innovation. As a young entrepreneur, this is my sole purpose with you- to stretch my expertise under your humble guidance. Lastly, If I'm in a conference room and the video isn't working, I'm not the sort to simply call IT and wait. I'll also (gracefully) crawl under the table and check that everything is properly plugged in. This is my proactiveness in finding simple solutions to everyday problems! You can find my portfolio here(attach your Fueler portfolio), and I hope we can explore synergies together soon.
That's it for this week! We will be back with more tips and templates next week!
Hope you make the most out of these. All the best 🙌
