10 Emails You Need to Close a Sale

You’ve written thousands of emails in your lifetime. That doesn’t necessarily mean it gets any easier, especially when you’re trying to make a sale. It’s tough to determine what to say, when to say it, and how to drive prospects towards a sale without sounding too pushy. Perhaps you even get writer’s block when you sit down to write the email.

That’s why we’re giving you a short-cut: 10 sales related email templates that you can copy, paste, and use as a starting point for the messages you send to prospects. If you’re using automation software, like Infusionsoft, you can set up many of these emails to be triggered automatically by an action like a purchase or previous email.

While you’re at it, keep these tips in mind:

  • Include a call-to-action that tells the recipient what you’d like them to do
  • Gather opt-in permission from recipients
  • Keep your emails direct and short (around one hundred words)



E-book: Collect and Consult

Collect and Consult

Lead magnets (e-books, whitepapers, webinars, etc.) have great potential to bring in new leads, which can lead to consultations and business. Pairing those lead magnets with your CRM software can yield impressive results. A collect and consult campaign is a great fit for businesses that sell products or services using some type of scheduled appointment or consultation.

The objective is to post the lead magnet on your website along with a form people must fill out to download, and promote it on your social channels and your blog posts to give it as much buzz as you can. As your prospects download the lead magnet, you will make a follow-up offer via email for a consultation.

In this e-book, you’ll learn:

  • How a collect and consult campaign works
  • How to create your lead magnet
  • How to set up an email series
  • And more!

E-book: Small Business Strategies for Earning Repeat Sales and Customer Loyalty


Repeating History: Small Business Strategies for Earning Repeat Sales and Customer Loyalty

Attracting and acquiring new customers is an essential and never-ending pursuit for all businesses. But there’s also another way to grow sales that can be more effective—and cost-effective: Sell to the customers you already have.

Existing customers are your best prospects. Whether they realize it or not, they’ve already bought into the idea of your business, making them more receptive to your next sales and marketing messages. That’s why the probability of selling to them is 60 to 70 percent, compared with 5 to 20 percent for a new prospect, according to the book Marketing Metrics. And the more customers buy from you, the more likely they are to recommend your company to others—which can result in even more business.

In this e-book, you’ll learn:

  • Why retaining customers can be even more important than acquiring them
  • Methods of generating repeat business and inspiring customer loyalty
  • How marketing automation software, like Infusionsoft, can help you grow repeat sales and retain customers
  • Strategies used by small business owners to keep customers coming back for more

E-book: The Small Business Office Automation Guide

The Small Business Office Automation Guide

Save time and money by automating administrative work

In the not-so-distant past, offices had rooms filled with files and staff members dedicated to organizing them. Employees entered customer information into systems or spreadsheets, one word at a time. They spent much of their days typing e-mail replies, calling customers about appointments, and chasing paperwork to be completed. Plenty of offices still operate this way.

The manual work may partially explain why entrepreneurs say they spend 68 percent of their time managing daily tasks in their business instead of working on their business strategy and goals, according to a survey from The Alternative Board, a membership organization for business owners. But at the most successful small businesses, employees don’t do these tasks—not manually, anyway.

Instead, they automate the office, relying on software like Infusionsoft to manage routine communication, data entry, documents, hiring, and more. When repetitive, tedious tasks are automated, employees have more time to focus on strategy and personal interactions: the kind of work best done by people, not software.

In this e-book, you’ll learn how to automate:

  • Routine communication
  • Administrative tasks like data entry, billing, and paperwork
  • Appointment scheduling and follow up
  • Employee hiring and training
