Whether you’re an advanced hiring agency looking for clients’ hires or a scaling company looking for new employees - recruiting top talents can be a pain.
The job market is saturated with opportunities, so the most qualified candidates are often passive job seekers.
Recruiters can no longer solely rely on traditional job postings and expect top talents to come to them... 🥵
Instead, they use cold outreach - direct contact with potential candidates via cold email, LinkedIn message, call, or similar.
Still, many recruiters doing outreach struggle to:
→ find candidates that meet specific job requirements,
→ catch their attention and get replies,
→ follow up in a human way with hundreds of candidates.
To help you out, we just launched a step-by-step guide to leveraging the power of cold outreach to hire ideal candidates!
✅ Find, contact, and get replies from all candidates you’re talking to!

Here's a cold email that targets customer service (CS) managers in e-commerce to sell an AI-powered CS platform 👇
Mistake #1 → Too promotional subject line
Avoid using popular marketing and sales keywords such as “boost”, “customer service”, and “AI” which won’t make your cold email stand out in prospects’ inboxes.
Mistake #2 → Self-centered intro line
The intro line should catch prospects’ attention by talking about them and what you can do for them. Talking about yourself won’t bring them value and interest them in reading the rest of your email.
Mistake #3 → Not-visible CTA
Because your prospects usually scan emails, adding a space line before the ending line will make their next step more clear.
Mistake #4 → Spam words
If you want to ensure your messaging gets through, avoid using spam words like “free”. Those words trigger the spam filters and land your emails in the spam folder where your target audience can’t read them.
Here is how Sacha would rewrite the previous cold email and his tips for booking more meetings:
Tip #1 → Focus on your prospect
If you want to get replies to your cold emails, talk about leads' companies, compliment them, and ensure most of your email is focused on achieving their goals.
Tip #2 → Tease the value with social proof
By leveraging social proof, you can showcase prospects' desired outcomes and tease them into replying. Mention relevant industry clients and their results to build full trust and credibility.
Tip #3 → Position yourself as an expert
Position yourself as a problem solver. Once you show your leads that you understand their pain point and know how to solve it, it will make your product/service more relevant.
Tip #4 → Non-intrusive CTA
Instead of discussing demos, ask for less effort and catch up over a call/meeting. It will sound less salesy, making your leads more comfortable booking a meeting with you!
