It is amazing the amount of unsolicited email we all receive.
You don't have time to read all of them and neither do I.
If you don't have me at the subject line I delete the email and the wrong subject line gets you in the spam folder.
What is easiest way to get placed in my spam folder?
Here are some examples:
"Are you interested in improving your rankings in the search engines? There is a massive amount of traffic and sales available for those in the top spots, so I just wanted to find out if that was something you wanted a consultation on. I am very passionate about what I do and would love to give you a breakdown of what needs to be done, how long it will take and what the costs are. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in and we can set up a time to chat.

"My name is ****** and I’m a website designer. I’m reaching out to find out if there are changes or improvements that you’d like to make to your site. Have you been thinking about updating your site to a more modern look and feel or adding some features to the site that automate some of your business processes? If so, I’d really love to speak with you.
Is there a time we can speak in the next couple of days that would work for you? I can provide you with some suggestions of different things that I’ve done that have made a big impact on my clients’ sales. I’d love to be able to help out.
Let me know what number to call and what time works out best for you and I’ll do my best to make it work.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

I volunteer for a non profit and these emails were unsolicited and arrived through the "dump" box. I dragged them right into the spam folder.
