I have received from you what appears to be a form letter, or even worse. the first of many form letters that are part of a drip campaign.
Please don’t send me form letters.
If you are not just sending a blind form letter, then there is some specific reason why I am the person you are contacting and you should include something that suggests that I am a specific choice. If your missive could have been sent to someone else without change, it suggests otherwise.
In sending me a generic message, you are demonstrating either
- that you don’t care,
- you are really bad at showing that you care.
Which is it?
If you want my attention, send me a demonstration of your worth. Read enough of my public materials to know what would be valuable to me, do it, and then show me your result. If you can’t figure out what I would find valuable, it’s not a good sign.
Please be aware that I charge $1,000 to evaluate messages that seem generic to me. My evaluation is that yours indeed looks generic.
So please be sure that your response to this is a demonstration of value worth of at least $1,000.
Or else make a donation to my favorite charity.
