Networking Follow Up Email

Let’s pretend you met someone interesting at the event. What do you do after that? Right, you follow up. Writing follow up after networking is a very important step that you have no right to miss. Ideally, you need to follow up within 24 hours.

By doing this you set a better relationship with the person and it’s a great way to arrange the meeting if you want to meet again.

How to write a follow up email after networking?

Let’s now talk about how to write a post networking follow up that will grant you a response from the receiver.

Networking follow up email subject line

Your post networking email subject line is the first thing that your receiver will see. So it should drive their attention and make them want to open it and read. 

Here are some great subject line examples that you can use:

  1. I was excited to meet you at [event]
  2. I had this idea since we last spoke at [event]
  3. Pleasure meeting you today [name]
  4. Great meeting you [name]. Let’s connect on [social media]
  5. So, how did you like [event]?

Networking follow up email examples

Here are some great templates that you can you for you follow ups depending on your goals and needs.

Networking follow up techniques

  • Mention where you met

If you met someone on an exact event doesn’t mean that this person visited only this event. So to be more specific - always mention where exactly did you meet.

  • Mention a conversation you had

This will help to remind who you are and the person you are reaching out to will feel more comfortable.

  • Offer connecting on social media

That way you will have a stronger connection and will be always in a loop.

  • Ask to meet again for a coffee

If you want to continue the conversation this is a great chance to have it and discuss everything in a more friendly atmosphere.

  • Offer help

It can be anything from sharing an article to introducing to someone.

How to send a follow up email after networking?

This is what you should check before sending your follow up:

  • Have you personalized your email?

The less generic and more personalized your email is - the more chanced it will be opened and you will receive a reply.

  • Have you sent it within 24h?

Again, timing is crucial here cause if you send it later there is a chance that your receiver will be busy and will not have time for your event follow up.

  • Have you checked grammar?

Your follow up should be professional so make sure there are no mistakes.

  • Have you set tracking for email openings?

Sending a good follow up doesn’t grant you openings and replies. So to be sure always track if the receiver opens your email to send your next follow up.

Networking follow up best practices

There are a few ways in which you can personalize follow ups.

  • leverage custom text and liquid syntax
  • use personalized images that update dynamically
  • add dynamic landing pages to your outreach funnel

In practice, custom text represents your opportunity to include unique sentences for every prospect. You will have your sentences written in the .csv file and simply use tags to place them within the cold email.

On top of that, features like liquid and spin syntax allow you to leverage text personalization in more advanced ways. For example, if you want to automatically change call-to-actions for different audience verticals, you will use liquid syntax and have different closing lines for each audience segment. On the other hand, spin syntax can help you randomly play with, for example, different greetings to make your cold emails tiny bit more different.

Personalized images will take your networking follow-ups to the next level. Website screenshots, company logos, custom video thumbnails, you can let your creativeness go above and beyond to write the perfect cold email.

Finally, dynamic landing pages are a perfect weapon to utilize when your objective is networking.

They enable you to create custom landing pages without the coding part, and then embed things like videos, chat, Calendly, Typeform and much more.
