    Apologies. Posted in the wrong forum. Coffee must not be working yet. Let me know what you think

    Subject: Congrats!

    Hello First_Name,

    I saw that you are expanding. Congratulations!

    I reached out because we help companies increase throughput in the cellular assays

    We work with a lot of clients in the cell and gene therapy space, and have helped them get to trials and market faster. We recently helped one client get through a CRO scale up and into trials in 2 months!

    I’d love to talk about your workflow and see if we could help you to get some time back, as well as help [company] get more potential therapeutics through the discovery process.

    Would you have time this week for a quick discussion?

    Hey Sean,

    Some notes –

    • The first line isn’t really personalized as it’s so generic. What expansion? What does that mean for them? Why does that tie into your message?
    • “Hi” is cleaner than “hello”.
    • Subject line is very generic and slightly click baity. It sounds like they’ve won something.
    • Can you give examples of the companies that you’ve worked with? That would really add to the trust factor.
    • I’ve tested lots of CTA and pigeon holing someone with an “assumptive close” doesn’t work as well as “would it make sense to jump on a quick call?” or “mind if I share how it works?”
    • Reduce the length as much as you can.

    Here’s my rewrite –

    Subject: Name – Slow to get to trials?

    Hi First_Name,

    I noticed that you’ve expanded in [specific thing].

    That means you’re now likely facing [new challenge].

    We recently worked with [specific company] and helped them get to trials [specific amount of time] faster than their previous attempts.

    Would it make sense to jump on a quick call to see if we can do the same for you?
