Reading Time: 18 minutes

Updated 5/12/2020: 9 more cold pitch email templates for local marketing

Do cold pitch email templates work, specifically for small businesses that need local marketing services?

The cold SEO sales pitch still has value.

It doesn’t always seem that way due to the amount of spam each of us receives daily. That said, the cold pitch is a strategy you can use to identify viable leads ahead of time. 

These days, the cold SEO pitch feels spammy. 

It isn’t spammy in the right hands, but this perception is why it’s so important to approach this the right way. If you know how to pitch SEO services properly, you have a significant advantage over other digital marketing agencies.

Small business objections or lack of awareness?

Small business owners have to juggle so many areas of their company just to have a smooth-running ship. Many are trying to do too much, and either DIY their marketing without proper education or they delegate to someone completely unqualified. 

For some small business owners, their budget for marketing (or lack thereof) will play a role in how receptive they are to your pitch. For others, their time is scarce and invaluable.

Not all business owners are going to want to hear that your marketing plan is going to take time to see results. You’re going to need to show them a combination of quick wins, but also the bigger picture. It’s going to be a combination of educating them on the value of local marketing and highlighting how it will impact their business financially.

This is what pitching SEO successfully is all about. 

You can demonstrate your ability to generate leads now and leads over the long term for your client with minimal risk to them. 

Once you get the chance to pitch a lead, after that introductory phone call, you’ll be able to read your prospect and speak to what will resonate with them for their business. That cold SEO pitch email needs to get you that first conversation.

Why use SEO pitch emails to win small business clients?

Digital marketing email templates, when they’re used appropriately, produce incredible value for local agencies. A cold email pitch is viable when it has all the right ingredients (which I’ve previously discussed). Here’s a brief recap. 

  1. A strong value proposition. This is a promise, a compelling reason why clients should choose to work with you instead of a competitor. Your value proposition, at its core, is about uniqueness. The biggest, single most compelling reason the prospect has to work with you. They need to understand the value of the investment. How are your services going to make them money (more efficiently than their efforts or lack of effort), and where can it save them time to focus on other aspects of their business?
  2. An irresistible offer. These offers are all about reducing/eliminating risk. You want to assume all or most of the risk clients take on when they work with you (e.g., discounts, special offers, introductory offers, etc.).
  3. Urgency triggers. These are motivators, reasons for potential clients to act now. Urgency triggers or facilitators of action. They motivate prospects to take action on your irresistible offer today, now. Loss aversion timers, bonuses, vanishing reports, and limited client slots are all effective urgency triggers.
  4. Social proof signals. Your prospects will be immediately suspicious, that’s an inherent part of the cold pitch process. Prospective clients don’t know you. They don’t know that you’re honest and aboveboard. We certainly won’t take your word for it either. Social proof (e.g., public reviews, third-party testimonials, influencer feedback, etc.) builds trust quickly.
  5. Risk reversals. Risk reversals transfer some or all of the risk of a transaction from the buyer to the seller (you). Risk reversals are uncomfortable for many sellers because it feels, on some level, as if you’re losing.

If you’d like to increase your odds of success dramatically, you need these five ingredients ahead of time. 

But why? 

Why use cold emails to pitch your services? There are a variety of reasons why local marketing firms would use cold pitch email templates.

  • You're just starting out, and your ad/marketing budget is low.
  • You're looking to go after larger, more established prospects, but you don't have a way in.
  • You're a freelance marketer, but you don't have an established website.
  • You need to identify your prospect's needs before you increase your ad spend.

There are a variety of reasons.

Do you know what to say in your SEO email pitch?

Here are a few cold email pitch templates that you can use to pitch your local marketing services. 

I’m going to assemble the ingredients I mentioned earlier into a pitch. I’ll provide you with a few different templates you can use as entry points, but these templates should be used as a framework, a starting point. 

The essential component to understand when using these templates, they need to be personalized. 

First off, you only have enough time to take on a certain amount of clients. Be aware of your own time limitations. If you spend the time to invest in your prospecting, do the research, and really drill down into how you can help your potential client, you’re going to be that much more effective in closing the deal.

Remember also that finding the appropriate person and email to pitch is a big part of the battle. Writing an email directly to the owner of the business or for larger organizations, a business development executive, is going to be more effective than sending the pitch over to their general support email address. 

Email finder services like VoilaNorbert and Hunter are going to be invaluable in that process. 

Let’s dive in.

Does your agency offer ORM?

Offer your local clients a white label review management experience with Grade.us as you help them generate 5 star Google reviews and boost their performance in Local SERPs.

Cold Email Template #1: Online Review Management Services

Business owners, your clients, need you to pitch them.

Your clients are under an enormous amount of pressure to produce results. They’re aware of the results they need, but they’re not sure how to get there. Most clients have a rudimentary understanding of online reviews.

They know they’re powerful.

Most of them aren’t sure about the enormous potential impact a stellar review portfolio can have on their business.

Here’s a pitch you can use for review management services.

Subject: [Prospect Name], do you want [x]% more leads in [30/60/90 – x amount] days?

Body:

Hi [Prospect Name],

[Competitor], one of your competitors, has some negative one and two-star reviews from several unhappy customers.

You can avoid this. 

In fact, there’s an easy (and free) way to reduce the negative reviews that would hurt your business. 

A review performance and trend report.

In [x] minutes, I’ll outline your competitor’s strategy vs. yours, and how to learn from their mistakes so your business will continue to grow. I’ll do this free.

Cold Email Template #2: Review Management pitch email (Alternative)

What if they simply want help to deal with their lack of/negative reviews? Here’s a template you can use to accomplish that as well.

Subject: Are customers voting for you or your competitors?                                

Body:

Hi [Prospect Name], 

A reviewer named [Reviewer Name] posted [this negative review] about [Competitor], your competitor today. They have a total of [93] one and two-star reviews. 

The good news? 

I can show you how to turn their negative reviews into positive reviews for your business. The [data shows] this could bring in [50]% more business for you.

My name is [Your Name], I’m the co-founder of [Agency Name]. My agency only takes on [x] clients at a time. I have [x] slots left.

Interested?

Cold Email Template #3: Performance Based Online review Management Pitch

Here’s a template you can use to pitch local review management services using a performance report. The idea here is to educate the customer on how their online reviews can drive business.

You’re showing them how they look stacked up against competitors and then planting the seed for how your agency will be able to help them pass them.

Subject: [Prospect Name], do you want [x]% more leads in [30/60/90 – x amount] days? 

Body: 

Hi [Prospect Name],

Your online reviews can generate [X]% more leads in [30/60/90 – x amount] days. Do you know how?

It starts with a review performance report.

In [x] minutes, you can compare your competitor’s strategy vs. yours, and how to surpass them. This report is all education, no pitch. It’s also free, and there’s no obligation to buy.

Interested?

P.S. I have [x] slots left. Schedule your free report, and review here [Calendar appointment link].

Cold Email Template #4: Manual Review Management pitch email

Are customers still writing reviews during the pandemic? Research shows the answer to that question is yes – though not in the same volume as before. That will change once states open up again.

What does this mean?

Reviews are more important than ever; customers are looking for reassurance and evidence that they’ve selected the right provider (you). Here’s a modified review management pitch email you can use to go after larger, more profitable clients.

Subject: Here’s what [x] local prospects said about [prospect business].

Body: 

Hi [Prospect Name],

We reached out personally to [x] local customers, and we analyzed [x online reviews] in your review portfolio. Here’s what your local customers told us about you.

  •   [X% of the customers we interviewed are currently looking for a lower-priced competitor
  •   X% have complaints about your services that they say haven’t been resolved
  •   X% have decided to leave, but they haven’t told you why (we found out why)
  •   X% of your prospects say they’d sign up immediately if you fixed two specific problems] 

We recorded all of the [x] interviews we conducted manually. If you’d like to watch or listen to the interviews yourself, you can do that [here].

[Signature]

Here’s the thing about this review management strategy. It takes a lot of upfront work. This can produce a significant payday, but it needs to be worth it. How do you make sure it’s worth it? You find clients who are willing and able to pay for this upfront work (later on). 

This means you’re looking for clients who:

  • Bring in a minimum of $1 million in revenue annually
  • Have a weak review portfolio
  • See the value of reviews
  • Have searched for, or requested help with marketing in the last year (you can use Google’s site search operator to comb through job sites like Indeed)
  • Meet the other criteria you have set for an ideal client

Once you’ve identified a list of contenders, you’ll want to take an employee (preferably an influencer) to lunch. Be frank about why you want to take them to lunch; ask them what you’ll need to do to get your foot in the door. Doing this enables you to disqualify poor candidates ahead of time. You’ll want to do a lot of upfront work to qualify or disqualify clients ahead of time.

Cold Email Template #5: Quiz Based Local SEO Pitch

Small business clients don’t understand the interplay between local search, paid and organic search, content marketing, and social media. These cold emails give you the tools and resources you need to attract the kind of clients you want.

Use a tool like Typeform Quizzes or even a free tool like Google Forms to generate a quiz. Adding a quiz will also add an interactive element that draws a prospect out and resonates with them.

That will allow you to qualify your prospects, educate them, learn how much they already know about local marketing services, and prime them for what you’ll be able to offer in the next conversation.

Subject: Do you know how to protect your local business on Google?

Body:

Hi [Prospect Name],

Your [Competitor], they’re trying to [grab more keywords and rankings] in Google’s local search results. 

The bad news?

You’re competing for the same keywords in Google. This free [quiz] shows you how to generate consistent traffic (and leads) from Google, without falling behind (no opt-in required). I can also show you whether you’re gaining or losing ground to your local competitors (e.g., rankings dropped by [x]% in the last 30 days).

Won’t cost you a penny. May I send you the quiz?

Here’s an alternate template you can use to snag their attention.

Subject: Do you know how to protect your local business on Google? 

Body:

The bad news?

Cold Email Template #7: Audit Based Local SEO Pitch

Cold Email Template #9: Technical SEO email pitch

Technical SEO is a simple and straightforward way for you to generate interest from prospective clients. It’s a specialize skill set that’s outside most small business owners expertise, but can pay massive dividends for local search traffic.

If you’re an experienced SEO, you can use your SEO tool of choice to find broken links, get crawl report data on a specific site, find 404 errors, 302 redirects, and more.

Here’s a Technical SEO template you can use to pitch your local marketing services.

Subject: [Prospect Name], these website errors are preventing you from showing up in Google…

Body: 

Hi [Prospect Name], 

I thought you’d like to know that customers are struggling to find your website due to several website errors. I did a quick scan of your website, and it’s available for you if you’re interested (no opt-in required).

My name is [Your Name], I’m the [title] of [Agency]. 

I made this short [1-page report] exclusively for your business. If you follow the instructions in the report, you can boost website traffic by an estimated [X% in less than 30 days] 

Here’s that [report] again (it’s free).

[Signature]

When prospective clients are stressed out, it’s easy for them to neglect their website and marketing. Technical SEO is the low hanging fruit you can use to give your foot in the door with new clients.

Cold Email Template #10: Web Design and Development Services Pitch

Web design and development is a complex service. It’s also incredibly challenging to pitch cold. It’s easier to pitch at lower price points (say $500 – $2,500). It’s still doable at the $10,000 to $50,000 level, but more difficult, and much harder at $50,000+.

For most small businesses, your portfolio is going to be a key driver of winning the business, but if you’re able to educate the business on the type of value their website is intended to deliver (traffic, leads, appointments, and sales), you’ll differentiate yourself from the typical marketing agency.

The key is showing concrete examples of how you will be able to improve their business. There are several components you can focus on:

  • Simple copy changes
  • Contact forms adjustments
  • Product/service pages adjustments
  • About us pages
  • Full redesigns
  • FAQ pages
  • Links to review site listings or social media profiles

Here’s a template you can customize.

Subject: [Prospect Name], these 5 website hacks will boost your revenue

Body: 

[Competitor] made some significant changes to their keywords and advertising recently. According to SpyFu, they’re converting [x]% more traffic. 

This traffic could be yours. 

Here are 5 changes I would make to your website and how I believe they would impact your sales:

  • [Modification 1] | [Predicted Result 1
  • [Modification 2] | [Predicted Result 2
  • [Modification 3] | [Predicted Result 3
  • [Modification 4] | [Predicted Result 4
  • [Modification 5] | [Predicted Result 5] 

You’re in full control here. My agency would be able to show you definitive results. 

You’ll be able to play with these website hacks, testing the effect it will have on your traffic.

Cold Email Template #11: Social Media Management Services Pitch

Subject: [Prospect Name], these clients are looking for your help 

Body:  

Hi [Prospect Name],

Last week there were [x] prospects in your area who were looking for your [product or service].

They were searching for you on [social network]. 

Here’s how you can help them find you (free of charge). 

I’m offering this free social media [checklist] to you. It gives you the tools you need to convert [x]% more customers month-over-month (no opt-in required). [Client], a client of ours, boosted [metric (engagement/followers/shares)] by [x]%.

These cold emails are the starting point of a great pitch. Use them to pitch, sell, and promote your marketing services. Take the time to customize these templates for your audience, agency level, and approach.

Industry-specific templates

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, various industries have been impacted differently. It’s critical that you’re sensitive to how each industry is handling the change in user behavior. Some industries are thriving while others have lost a significant amount of business and might be on the verge of shutting down altogether.

As you look for prospects to pitch, companies that are doing well might have additional budget to invest in their digital marketing and advertising. Industries that are suffering might have a certain amount of desperation that you don’t want to exploit. 

I’ve put together some templates for both type, but always try your best to enter these conversations from a position of empathy.

Here’s a list of templates for industries that are stable or doing relatively well during the downturn.

Cold Email Template #13: Home Renovation and Repair

Home renovation and repair specialists — handymen, general contractors, landscapers, plumbers, etc. are typically in demand during a recession or downturn.

Subject: Who will get customers first, you, or your competitors? 

Body: 

Hi [Prospect Name],

You can win clients over with cold pitch email templates

Is cold pitching a viable strategy today? 

Absolutely, but it’s essential to approach this in the right way. You know why it’s important; you don’t want to be perceived as a spammer. Cold emails, when they’re handled appropriately, can still produce incredible value for local marketing agencies.

Use the right ingredients.

Create a strong value proposition, an irresistible offer, and urgency triggers. Use social proof and risk reversals as de-fusers, and you increase your odds of success dramatically. Do it consistently, and you’ll discover the obvious.

Your cold pitch has value.
