Why nobody replied to your networking emails

It is shocking how terrible most LinkedIn messages and cold emails are

Here are the common reasons why nobody replied to you:

1. Long email (the longest I've got is 617 words - I'm sorry but no one has time for it)

2. Zero attention to detail (e.g. spell my name wrong, spell my firm's name wrong etc.)

3. Little research is done before the outreach (which makes your message look unappealing)

4. No specific call to action (i.e. do you want to get on a call or just say hi? Be clear)

5. Lacking credibility (e.g. underdeveloped LinkedIn profile with no profile photo)
