How to write a cold email:

- Be clear and direct.
- Make the subject line short and specific.
- Tell the reader what you want to accomplish.
- Don't share your life story. The best cold emails are simple and sweet.

Most importantly... short emails have HIGHER response rates.

Big upside for you. Easy work for them.
