We must have received alot of emails everyday asking for link exchanges, help…etc. Most of these emails are mass mails generated by software. How can we know someone is really interested in contacting us? These are my thoughts:
Clue 1: Talk about specific services that you offer, ie not something like “we found you through the web and you are the best person…etc”.
Clue 2: Name. People who knows your real name are likely to be interested to write an email to you.
Clue 3: How did they find you? Anyone who can describe abit about how they found youÂ is likely to be genuine.
Clue 4: Others? Gut feeling… you know it when you read tonnes of junk mails.
