1. Keep it Concise

You don’t want the message to be more than two or three sentences long. Keep it short and to the point. No one likes to open their phone and see a novel on the screen, right? The whole point is to make this message a convenient one for them to read and respond too.

2. Introduce Yourself

3. Get a Little Creative

Don’t be afraid to insert a little personality. The trick to making sure it doesn’t feel like an automated messages is to make it sound like you. Use the words you usually would and be friendly like you would if the lead were standing right in front of you. You could even insert an emoji if that feels natural or consider a few other creative strategies for all of your follow up messaging.

4. Stay Consistent
