3X Your Lead Rate: Our Secret Sauce to Outbound Messaging
It’s no secret that we’re all inundated with emails — each person sends and receives something like 120+ emails a day. It takes some real chops to cut through all that noise — especially with cold outreach.
Here at RevBoss, we have our own secret sauce for getting noticed in people’s inboxes. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the unique approach we take to outbound email copy.
The original style of messaging that we’ve been using since the beginning still proves effective today. It’s pretty simple: Offer-forward messaging that is short and to the point, yet feels personal, and immediately informs the reader what the company does and how they can help.
In a recent A/B test, we compared the “RevBoss Style” messaging to a longer, pain points-focused style. While we continue to use both styles for different targeting – RevBoss Style came out on top with 3x the average lead rate.
Here are some examples:
