5 templates of email introducing a new product

introducing a new product

Email introducing a new product is one of the most cost-effective and direct ways to reach out to the right prospects. When any product is new what it needs most is a tribe of right kind of early adopters who will not only use the product but also give valuable feedback that is so sought in early stages.

Either you can wait for those early users to discover your product or you can cut it short by directly sending an email introducing the new product, making them aware of the pain points your product solves.

The situation is unique given that there is no social proof yet which can be used as a unique proposition for prospects which means either the communication has to stand out or the product or even better Both.

The main objective of sending the email is not to immediately close a sale but to generate enough interest so that your prospect responds. Once you have their attention, you and your product can do all the talking and convince them to buy.

4. Let a personalized video do the talking

Pro Tip: Don’t send a basic product demo video with voiceover, instead, talk directly with the prospect and explain to him/her what you have built and why. Put your call to action in the video itself. 

Prospects will appreciate the time you took out to create a personalized video for them.

Your hustle will reflect positively on the product and create a positive image.

5. Break the ice with a dash of humor and make it about yourself.

Largely intended to get a meeting or demo call. A tinge of humor lowers the unfamiliarity and warms up the reader.

In business settings, people generally receive to the point, professional-sounding emails. Your email could be a positive break from the pattern and might elicit a response.

Think like a stand-up comedian!

Greetings {firstname},

I wanted to show up on your doorstep and introduce myself, alas all I could manage is this email :P
You have never heard of me, I have not done anything newsworthy yet!

This is Joe and I lead {role} for {company name}.

We are new kids on the block helping companies in {key areas, for e.g. Customer support} but with a much more powerful solution that delivers {X}% better results.

Oh, and I wanted to ask something before I show myself out of the mailbox.
Can we get on a demo call where I can show you how we deliver better results?

Now you can go back to sipping that cup of coffee you have been waiting for.

Have a great day ahead!
