WHAT IS COLD MAILING?

Cold mailing is sending a bunch of emails like sending 100,500 to 1000s of emails to specific people related to your niche for promoting services and NOT SPAMMING. These emails we send are just to open a connection between you and your future clients. Don't just send millions of emails with links and spamming people, NO!.


HOW TO START?

Your first step is to identify your target audience/clients. For example, if your service is to optimize youtube videos, thumbnails, etc. then who is your target audience obviously Youtubers. How to collect emails from youtube? Just go to a youtube channel, click on the about section, and select view email.

Now click Ctrl+A and copy everything and go to a new page and search for a free email extraction tool Online and enter or simply go to email-extractor.net and paste all that you copied there to extract the emails for free. Now collect those emails separately in your notepad or anywhere on your PC or tabs. Or you can go to some specific websites you know and go to about us or contact us page and copy their emails.


HOW TO SEND BULK COLD EMAILS TO TARGETED PEOPLE?

HOW TO WRITE A PERFECT SUBJECT LINE FOR BULK EMAILS?

I have attached two sample templates HERE to make you understand how to write a cold email as a freelancer Download these templates and change it with your own service and send them to your clients/audience. 


WHY I SHOWED TWO DIFFERENT TEMPLATES?

Usually, in Email marketing, there is a thing called A/B split test, as an example, you collected 100 email lists send the first template to the first 50 in the email list and the second template to the second 50 in the email list. This is done to see which template is performing better A or B to use on the upcoming campaign this is what is known as the A/B split test.
