How many times do you send emails daily? How many times do you receive marketing emails weekly? And how fast do you delete such emails without considering the content?
Here are some keys so your words would be effective and your emails will be read.
I “think” I can guide you to the right direction. I “believe” my ways are the best. However, I “need” only “5 minutes” to show you how to grab the technique.
Seriously? Did you trust that I do have a great product for you? Even if it looks that I do lack the confidence (using the words “think”)?, or the solid base of my message (using the word “believe”)? Didn’t you feel that I am weak and depend on you since I used the word “need”? And what about this “5 minutes”? Right away you know that I am going to sell you something that you might not want. Instead of explaining how to benefit from the product. Explain How such product will change life for better. How to need the product to be happier, & solve all problems.
Show me numbers, evidences, show me how you do believe in your product and how it will solve my problems. Show me confidence without being urgent. Show me that you do care about me.
Now.. How would you rephrase the above message?

My mobile phone suddenly died 16 hours ago. Last I checked it, (I usually check it every 3 minutes), it was charged up to 86%. When it stopped working, I tried to calm myself down, trying to convince myself that it was going to start up again.
But it never started up again.
I waited ages (about ten minutes) until I embarked on a journey to fix it myself. I looked everywhere for solutions. I tried websites, blogs, videos; I tried them all.
But still, it wouldn’t start up.
All my businesses, connections, appointments, addresses, pictures are kept behind this black dead screen; my life is hanging there. After a while, I felt empty. No messages coming in, no notifications, no calls, no access to Social Media; just a silent black screen. Now what?
Still, no phone.
This morning, I woke up fresh and smiling (still, without a phone). I finally was able to find the answers to all the questions I have been asking myself for a long time. I woke up with a clear head, with many plans, with new projects, and with a focused mind. I even read a book last night. Today I woke up knowing who I am. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I wasn’t confused, I wasn’t lost, I wasn’t depressed. Today, I felt strongly connected with my inner self, even though I already meditate daily. Today, I woke up and I recognized myself; I felt proud of myself and my achievements. I woke up with a huge urge to help people thrive. My phone had taken up a part of my life, and only when it was gone, was able to retrieve it.
Do I wish you had a dead phone? Oh yes, definitely, but perhaps not longer than twenty-four hours…
