From the “personal email laboratory” of Russel Yee, Singapore’s #1 CV Expert
I was sitting at my computer, waiting to push “Send,” but I couldn’t bring myself to do it.
Backtrack to 2009, it was yet another job application I was sending in, but I knew they wouldn’t see all my hard work…my sense of humor…my ambition. All they would see was this email.
IF they liked the email…they might read my application.
IF they liked the application, they might invite me in for an interview.
And IF they liked me in person…they might give me the job — a job I needed badly to pay off my university loans, since I came from a middle-class family.
But it all started with that email.
How many emails do we send every year? THOUSANDS?
But what do we do? We simply write what we think. That’s like walking into an interview and simply “answering their questions.” If that’s your plan, you’ve already lost.
Top performers know that 80% of the work in an interview is done before you ever set foot in the room. The same is true of email: 80% of the work is done before you ever write the first sentence.
But nobody teaches us this! They give advice like “write short emails — nobody wants to read long emails” (which, by the way, is not true. I’ve generated literally millions of dollars writing long emails. More on that later.)
Who would teach us anyway? Who’s actually sat down and systematically studied how to reach busy people using email? How to get a group of friends to commit to doing something over a random Thursday message in their inbox?
And finally, we can blame ourselves. Email is literally one of the most powerful tools at our disposal, yet how many of us have truly mastered how to write effective emails? How many of us have tested different approaches to sending emails that work?
And honestly, how many of us just write whatever email we want, then complain when people don’t respond?
Instead of learning how to write world-class emails, we do…THIS
What do we do instead of learning how to write world-class emails that get results?
We search for the latest productivity app! We believe that if we can somehow “manage” our inbox, everything will be OK.
Here’s the truth: You can spend the rest of your life trying to wrangle your inbox under your control…and you might be EFFICIENT, but you will not be EFFECTIVE.
That means you can be at “inbox zero” and still get nothing meaningful done!
To be truly EFFECTIVE, we have to learn how to peer inside the mind of people and write emails that move them. To truly understand what makes a busy person open your email, reply to it, and keep in touch with you.
By the way, this is more important every year as we receive more and more emails. If you master these skills, you’ll always be able to penetrate overflowing inboxes and sidestep the barriers that people put up to ward off time-wasters and novice salespeople.
I’m talking about emails that respect busy people…that deeply understand what they want and fear…and cut through the clutter (even a Fortune 500 CEO’s clutter) to get a response.
I’ve been testing emails since 2009. Subject lines…copy…length…the number of questions to ask…and virtually every permutation you can imagine.
I started because (1) I love psychology studies on human behaviour and (2) I realized we send THOUSANDS of emails every year. If I could improve my emails by even 10%, that’s a savings of thousands of hours over my lifetime — time I can spend traveling, going out with friends, or doing whatever I want to live a great life.
And with a large email list, I’ve been able to explode the number of tests I run — running sophisticated email analytics — and develop even deeper techniques of reaching people.
You know this — you read my emails!
What if you could take the years of learning I’ve done and apply them to your OWN emails? Not just your business emails, but your personal ones?
How I learned to write emails that get results
I was struck by how many of us write emails every day, but never take even a few hours to systematically deconstruct how to write a winning email.
These emails are important.
- These emails help us connect with mentors, hiring managers, even ex-teachers.
- They help us get promotions
- They build our professional reputation
- They affect our time — either presenting us as efficient, likeable professionals, or time-wasting ramblers who require multiple back-and-forths to get anything done
So, knowing I’d likely spend the rest of my life writing emails, I decided to start testing a new way of sending emails.
Here’s what I did.
First, I “stress-tested” all the email advice everyone gives us. For example, “send short emails! Just the facts! Nobody reads long emails!”
It’s funny, because I know a very sophisticated UK based marketer who wrote emails that are 10-20 pages long. People scoffed at them, saying “These are ridiculous. Who reads these things?”
He smiled and said, “Only the buyers.”
I quickly discovered how much of the “advice” out there is totally wrong. In fact, some of my very long emails have generated amazing responses from massive VIPs.
Second, I started to try to reach busier and busier people. I discovered the different way that busy people treat email from everyone else. And knowing these differences is critical if you ever want to reach them.
For example, when I was a headhunter, I would email VERY busy people (Senior HR Managers / SVPs / CEOs) and feel bad if they never replied…or if they sent a 1-line reply. I would blame them, saying, “Ugh, it would only take a minute to reply.” But over time, I learned that it was MY fault — and if I had written a more engaging email, I probably would have gotten a response.
Learning how to write to VIPs — including the key phrases and psychological triggers to use — was how I secured hundreds of headhunting contracts and gotten my clients amazing jobs at large MNCs in Singapore
Finally, I tested these in my weekly emails to you – my newsletter subscribers.
And now I want to reveal the actual emails I’ve used to build relationships with CEOs…generate hundreds thousands of dollars…and save thousands of hours — all from my inbox.
REAL EXAMPLES: How others have used my email scripts
“Russel, I used your networking email script and it worked! All of it felt completely natural and honest. People seem relieved that I am up front, have no angles, and understand that they are busy. And they seem to enjoy being useful, so we all benefit!”
“I hope you don’t sell too many of these. If everyone starts using them, it won’t be effective for me anymore. The response rates have been really good so far and it’s so easy to just copy and paste into my gmail. The people I cold email seem to be friendlier and more respectful of me. Some how these emails can communicate thatNigel W.
“I emailed three people within my network and by the week’s end had THREE informational interviews set for THIS WEEK and set 6 more today… all thanks to your tactic and email scripts.”Sunil P.
