Let me first start by saying that I am not an SDR expert and don’t claim to be. However, after one year as an Enterprise SDR, doing cold outreach 40+ hours a week, and absorbing content all day and every day, I would hope that I have learned what does and does not work when it comes to prospecting. I’ve learned so much from Heather Morgan over at Salesfolk when it comes to the SDR cold email. Her “hall of shame” is particularly helpful and lets you know what not to send.

It’s all about the language…When a Sales Manager wants to find a way into the hearts and minds of their people, they may explore a variety of routes. “Maybe I could run a contest…” “Maybe I could give them a half day off….” “I think I would like it, if I were still in Sales, if my manager did_______” The reason that precious few of these take hold in the head and heart of most sales people is that they are focused on some sort of tired call-and-response approach to drawing the best out of sales people. “If I do this action, I hope to get this result.” Sorry, NO.
