- Don’t just shoot an email and hope they respond. That almost never works
- Try sending video text message. You will get a high rate of reply on that, because very few people do it
- Try actually giving people a call. Very few people do that these days. If they don’t pick up, send a text right after (maybe video)
- Try unusual channels for outreach, such as snapchat and others
- Always be very friendly in your persistence, so that you don’t come across as pushy
- Find any way you can to stand out from the crowd
