No Response to First Email


Getting no response is tough, but a follow-up is necessary. This template is short and sweet and cuts to the chase without being pushy. Referencing that you know they’re busy helps the recipient feel more comfortable and understood. You know they’re a real person with a busy schedule which helps to humanize the email. Show them you’re persistent and re-iterate your initial ask to reinforce your commitment to helping them.

Hi {!First name},

I’m sure you’re very busy so I just wanted to check in to make sure that this didn’t slip through the cracks.

{!Ask a question / re-iterate initial ask}?

No problem at all if you’re too busy, just let me know.
