Cold Email LinkedIn

The Cold Email Survey Play

This strategy is great for SaaS, agency, B2B.

Note: you can do this in LinkedIn as well – InMails would work amazingly.

Strategy Overview

  1. Scrape Leads from LinkedIn
    Downloaded a list of our target market from LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
  2. Low-Intensity, Icebreaker Email Copy
    Very short, friendly email inviting them to take a survey about [their industry]’s relationship to an issue (basically our value proposition). Included links in the sender signature only.
  3. Interactive Qualifying Quiz Funnel
    Worked with both Landbot and Typeform. Acts a survey and qualification form to see if the prospect was the right fit. Used Integromat to automate the funnel.
