You’re confident in your buyers’ journey, you’ve got the inbound sales method down pat, and you think you’re ready to reach out to prospects. Well, it’s great that you did all that research, because this is when you’ll put it to use! Email is a convenient and simple way to reach out. Going the extra mile and putting some extra effort into those emails can make all the difference in your success.
