How to Use Chatbots to Write Cold Emails That Get Responses
AI In Sales
Cold emailing potential customers is part of the sales game, but it can be challenging to write compelling emails that get responses. That's where chatbots come in handy. AI-powered chatbots like ChatGPT, Claude, or Bard can generate initial drafts of cold emails based on your input about the prospect and desired messaging.
For example, I told the chatbot I wanted an introductory email for a potential client interested in marketing analytics software. In seconds, it produced this draft:
"Hi [prospect name], I saw on LinkedIn that you are interested in improving your marketing analytics. Our software helps companies like yours gain insights from customer data to optimize campaigns and increase ROI. I'd love to schedule a quick call to demo our platform and discuss if it may be a good fit. Are you free on [date] or [date]?"
Or, I asked Claude to write a cold email about our AI training for sales teams:

This draft is definitely a good starting point. I usually ask other chatbots to analyze and improve the first draft.
With chatbots, you can quickly create effective cold email templates tailored to different prospects and scale your outreach. The human touch is still needed, but chatbots take care of the busywork.
