The Secret Sauce

Ed Gandia here, at the wheel of The Writer's Life this week.

We've been talking about "warm email prospecting" over the last few days. And why it's the best and fastest way to get high-paying clients.

I started off the week by sharing my career-long struggle to land great clients, explaining I found an easier way to get it done – by sending out very short and inviting email messages to select prospects.

Yesterday, I revealed my exact blueprint for doing this. Today, I'll show you the "secret sauce" that makes this prospecting approach works so well.

It's what's enabled me to go from zero results with email … to landing great clients and profitable business partnerships.

Add this key ingredient to your prospecting emails and you'll have a non-stop client-attraction machine at your disposal.

  8. Great common sense information Ed. I too, don't like impersonal email blasts. I like your approach better. It makes more sense than what some gurus out there are hyping.
