We all know how crucial it is to make a lasting impression in the world of sales. As B2B professionals, we need to constantly come up with innovative ways to reach out and engage our target prospects.

One of the most effective tools in our arsenal is writing a powerful and persuasive sales pitch email.

The truth is, crafting a persuasive sales pitch via email can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

But what even is a sales pitch email? Why is it important? And how do you actually go about writing one?

This complete guide will cover everything you need to know about creating an effective sales pitch email, incorporating valuable techniques, and using relevant templates that really work. Let’s dive in!

What is a sales pitch email?

Let’s get down to basics.

A sales pitch email is a carefully-crafted message that presents the key selling points of your product or service to a potential customer.

The best sales pitch is:

  • Personalized to the recipient.
  • Focused on how you can help solve their problem or meet their needs.
  • Compelling enough to make them take action.

The information provided should be sufficient for your hot lead to either make a purchase or at the very least, schedule a call.

Why is a sales pitch email important?

A sales pitch email is critical because it simply is a great way to generate leads and increase conversions for your business.

It allows you to:

  • Connect with leads who may not be aware of your product or service, or who may be looking for a solution to their problem.
  • Showcase your value proposition by highlighting how your product or service can solve their pain points, meet their needs, and deliver benefits.
  • Demonstrate your credibility by providing social proof, testimonials, case studies, or awards that show your expertise and authority in your field.
  • Create a sense of urgency by using scarcity, exclusivity, or limited-time offers that motivate your prospects to act fast and avoid missing out on a great opportunity.
  • Stand out from the crowd by using a personalized, relevant, and engaging tone that captures the attention and interest of your recipients.
  • Build trust and rapport by showing empathy, understanding, and respect for your prospects, and by offering value and helpfulness without being pushy or salesy.

You won’t find all these benefits and opportunities in a generic, broadcast sales email. So the question now is:

How do you create a winning sales pitch email?

As we said earlier, sales pitch emails are here to help make your life easier, to help you generate more leads, and to drive your conversions.

When we say generate leads, we’re not talking about these messages:

Hello {{firstname}}, my name is Amine, and we’ve developed a tool that does X,Y,Z. Are you available for a call so we can discuss it?

We, at LaGrowthMachine, are big believers that a great sales pitch should be more than just a generic message.

It should be customized, creative, and also thoughtful enough to make the recipient feel like you’re not just trying to make a sale, but that you’re offering a real solution to their problem.

To that end, here are the highlights of our process to create a winning sales pitch email:

Step 1: Start with a catchy subject line

The subject line is the first thing that the reader sees when they receive your email. It’s also the most important factor that determines whether they will open it or not.

According to a study by HubSpot, 47% of email recipients open an email based on the subject line alone.

Therefore, you need to make sure that your subject line is catchy, relevant, and intriguing. It should capture the essence of your email and entice the reader to learn more.

But how do you do that? It’s not that hard:

  • Use numbers or statistics to show value or urgency. They show the reader that you’ve done your research and give them a sense of your expertise.

Subject: How to boost your conversion rate by 25% in 30 days

Subject: Last chance to save 50% on our best-selling product

  • Ask questions or challenge your leads to spark curiosity or appeal to emotions. Get the recipient to think about their current situation and the potential solution(s) you provide.

Subject: Do you make these 5 common mistakes on your landing page?

  • Personalize your sales copywriting to show relevance or connection. This makes your message more personable and allows you to develop a relationship with your lead, which is what B2B sales is about.

Subject: Hi {{firstname}}, I have a special offer for you

Subject: {{companyName}}: 3 ways to increase sales this quarter”

  • Use keywords or phrases that match the reader’s intent or interest. Make sure to include the words or phrases your target audience is likely to search for.

Subject: “The secret formula to writing irresistible headlines”.

  • Use humor or creativity to stand out from the crowd or show personality. Don’t be afraid to be funny and make people laugh. It will go a long way.

Subject: I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with what {{companyName}} does

Step 2: Personalize your message

Let’s cut right to it, personalization is no longer optional – it’s imperative. Personalized emails have been proven to generate more leads, drive higher conversions, and bring in more revenue than generic ones.

I personally never open an email that starts with “Dear Customer” anymore.

Using your lead’s name, or a detail that is personal to them, shows that you care about them and that you have done some research on them and/or their business. It also helps you build rapport and trust with them.

Since you’re probably not doing this manually, your choice of sales automation tool is important. It would probably help if you had a tool that will scrape your leads’ data and populate it automatically in the message you’re sending them.

And guess what? That’s exactly what LaGrowthMachine does.

LaGrowthMachine is a powerful, versatile multichannel sales solution that helps you personalize your outreach at scale. All you need to do is upload your leads’ LinkedIn profiles or emails and LaGrowthMachine will handle the rest.

It automatically collects data about your leads, like company name, job title, interests, etc., and uses it to create personalization tokens you can insert in your copy!

Enrichment feature

But, we’re not here to talk about our awesome product, that’s for later 😉

Here’s an example from one of our latest outreach campaigns

Subject: {{firstname}}, are you ready for the partnership of your dreams? 🥳

“Hey {{firstname}}!


My name is Amine and I’m in charge of content at LaGrowthMachine! We’re starting up a program for {{companyName}} that can take your business to the next level.


The goal is to have a win-win situation:


  • Benefit for them
  • Benefit for you


Are you interested?

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!



Now, as you can see, I didn’t use a ton of personalization, but it still makes a difference. People feel like I’m talking directly to them and that gives me an edge over my competition.

Another reason for that is that I already pre-segmented my list of leads thoroughly before deciding on my copywriting. That means I know that all the people I’m reaching out to are hot leads -to an extent.

This takes me to my next point:

Step 3: Focus on your segmentation and targeting

Though this point, like in outreach campaigns, should have come before personalization, the two are extremely related.

Your choice of subject line and copy will depend on who you’re targeting, and thus, how you go about your sales segmentation.

That means that if you don’t know your target audience, you cannot personalize your content accurately. You need to have a clear understanding of your leads and their needs in order to craft the right message.

And how do you build this understanding? Simple: Ask yourself:

  • What problem am I solving?
  • Who am I solving it for?
  • What are my target’s pain points?

For us at LaGrowthMachine for instance, our value proposition is to save time on our users’ schedules by automating their prospecting and having them switch to multichannel.

Many people would find this value proposition appealing, including:

  • Growth hackers
  • Salespeople
  • Company founders
  • Recruiters
  • Marketers

Are we going to address them all the same way? Of course not!

Each of these personae has different characteristics and pain points, let’s check them out!

The Growth Hacker:

The Growth Hacker Persona

The Salesperson is quite different:

The Salesperson Persona

When you look closely at both these profiles, the differences in how they see value in using LaGrowthMachine become quite obvious.

If we lumped them together in the same sequence and write the same content for both, it would do more harm than good!

The Founder:

The Founder Persona


The Marketer:

The Marketer Persona

They’re not at all about cold outbound, but rather reserved use for smart lead nurturing tactics and marketing activities enablement.

Last, but not least:

The Recruiter:

The Recruiter Persona

We could keep going, but you get the gist! Even for a service as straightforward as sales automation, we cannot take any shortcuts when it comes to how you segment and target your sales leads.

Step 4: Invite them to take an action

The final and most important step of your sales pitch email is to ask your leads to do something. This is called a call to action (CTA) and it should be clear, specific, and compelling. And it usually comes at the end of your email.

A CTA can be anything from clicking a link, replying to your email, booking a demo, signing up for a trial, or downloading a resource. Whatever you want your leads to do, make sure you tell them exactly how to do it and why they should do it.

Notice how this CTA is:

  • Clear: It tells the leads what they need to do (book a demo) and how to do it (click the button).
  • Specific: It tells the leads what they will get (a free 15-minute demo and an exclusive offer) and when they will get it (today).
  • Compelling: It uses words that create urgency (ready, today) and value (boost, save, free, exclusive).

A good CTA can make the difference between a lead taking action or ignoring your email. So make sure you craft it carefully and test different versions to see what works best for your audience.
