How to write effective client emails 🙌🏼 … and wait until the end, for three free email templates, I personally use for my design studio to effectively communicate throughout the brand process, for your use.
Effective client emails can be quite intimidating, but luckily for us, they are actually quite simple. You see, because if you’ve hooked a potential client enough to make the first move, and inquire with you, they are already attracted to your brand and what you’re putting out, and how you’re serving your audience.
So when it comes to your client emails, be sure to be just as authentic as you are every time you sit down to write a post to Instagram.
Don’t copy and paste an automatic-robotic toned email for this client in attempt to sound professional. Instead, try this. Before you hit the send button, read your email allowed to yourself, and if it doesn’t sound authentic to how you would say it to a friend, then rewrite it.
Rumor has it, that your inquires are real-life people — just like you, and an authentic human connection could be the thing that sets you apart from your competitor.
Now, for the freebies you were promised, (aka the reason you opened this blog in the first place ;)).

PS. I use Honeybook for all of my client management, and I will never go back. My biggest hack when it comes to Honeybook, is saving all of these email templates in my template folder, for easy access and ease of use. It saves me so much time, just like all of Honeybook’s tools do.
Just as a thank you for making it to the end of the blog, here’s my code for 50% off your first year with Honeybook. (That’s $200, friend!!)
