Subject: Re: Title of their blog post

Hey Cool Blogger,

1. I was looking for a few resources on momentum trading and I came across your very informative guide: [Title]

2. I noticed that one of the resources you mentioned on online brokerage comparisons no longer exists.

I recently created an extensively researched guide on how to choose the right online brokerage for you: [Link]

Considering trade volume, trade frequency, invested amount and other key factors.

It might make a good addition to your article.

Either way, keep up your insightful articles — Google sure loves those 10 000+ word tomes.

Subject: On hiring freelancers: been experimenting with Reddit myself — here are my results

Hey Site Owner,

I was doing some research on hiring freelancers and I came across your page.

1. Noticed you mention one of my favorite guides on the topic: [link].

I experimented with its steps myself and found great success with Reddit as well. Especially when you use a no brown M&Ms clause to weed out people who don’t even bother to read your entire job listing.

2. I just published a more in depth 5000+ word tome laying out step by step how to find, motivate and pay a remote team of freelancers: [link].

Might be worth a mention.

Either way, keep up your great work explaining the necessary groundwork people have to put down to get closer to the 4HWW dream.

It goes through everything step by step — love to know what know what you think!

Subject: quick note — dead resource on your site

Hello,

I’m a licensed (industry specialist) and a health writer — I recently visited your site while researching for an article I’m working on…

This is a note for your webmaster, as I found a dead resource on your site that visitors like me surely miss.

It’s on this page: http://www.theirsite.gov/linksandresources

I got an error message when I tried to click on this site: http://DeadURL.org/index.jsp

It looks like they made a change to their home page but didn’t update it… anyhow, the correct link is here: http://www.FixedURL.org/

And while you’re updating your page, I wondered if you’d be open to including some further resources that could help people struggling with similar issues.

Hey [WEBSITE OWNER FIRST NAME],

My name is [YOUR FIRST NAME] and I wanted to let you know I really liked your post about [TOPIC OF ONE OF THEIR BLOG POSTS — NOT THE EXACT TITLE AND NOT THE MOST RECENT ONE]. The part I particularly enjoyed was the part about [QUOTE FROM POST BECAUSE…]

However, when I was looking at your [DESCRIBE PAGE/POST], I noticed [A/SOME] broken [LINK/LINKS].

[LINK 1]

[LINK 2]

[ETC]

When you are fixing the page, I also think you should consider adding these two resources:

[YOUR WEBSITE #2 NAME — WWW.DOMAIN.COM] — [BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SITE — NOT A CORPORATE DESCRIPTION OR SLOGAN]

Template 8

Hey David,

I was looking through your suggested links on SportRacerHeaven.com and noticed a few broken links. Let me know how to reach the webmaster and I can send a list their way!

Also, if you’re open to suggestions, I think KingKongBikeParts.com would be a great fit. They have a large variety of customized parts that I’ve had trouble finding elsewhere.

All the Best,

-Peter

Template 9

Hello [NAME],

I was browsing through your site/links as a [NICHE SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION] myself, and they’re great. [ONE/TWO SENTENCES TAILORED TO SAID WEBSITE].

I’m contacting you specifically because I was looking through your links and I noticed a few broken ones — specifically to [BROKEN LINK1, BROKENLINK2]. Other than that you’ve got a great list!

I have two more suggestions for sites that were extremely helpful to me as a [NICHE SPECIFIC DESCRIPTION] might make good additions to your list — [GREATRESOURCE] and [MYWEBSITE]. [GREATRESOURCE] is a comprehensive and entertaining resource and [MYWEBSITE] has some great tips for [NICHESPECIFIC DETAIL]. Just a thought.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know and say thanks — have a great new year!

Regards,

Template 10 (Random Visitor)

SUBJECT: RE: PROBLEM WITH (THEIR SITE)

Hey (first name),

I was checking out (their site) today and noticed that a few links weren’t working on

this page: (page with broken links)

These two pages that you linked to don’t seem to exist anymore:

(broken link #1)

(broken link #2)

If you need a replacement resource, I saw this post last week and thought it was awesome:

(your page).

Hope that helps and keep up the awesome work with the blog!

Cheers,

(anything but your real name)

Template 11 (Big Fan)

SUBJECT: QUESTION ABOUT (THEIR SITE)

Hey [first name],

Just wanted to start off saying that I love [and I mean love!] [their site].

In fact, I spent my afternoon yesterday combing through a few of your classic articles.

This one was particularly amazing: [article link].

One thing, though: a link in the post wasn’t working. Looks like the site moved.

No biggie, just wanted to let you know.

Actually, I just posted an article that covers the same topic [article link].

As a huge fan I’d be honored if you’d consider replacing the bad link with a link to my content.

If not, it’s cool. I’ll still read your stuff!

Thanks,

(your name)

Template 12.1 (The bait and switch)

This is a two-part sequence: First, you email them to let them know about broken links without giving them any specifics. Then you follow up with the broken links…and your replacement link.

SUBJECT: BROKEN LINKS AT (THEIR SITE)

Hey there,

I just noticed a few broken links at (their site).

I’m not sure if this is the right person to ask, but I thought it was worth a shot.

Thanks,

(name)

Template 12.2 (The bait and switch)

SUBJECT: BROKEN LINKS AT (THEIR SITE)

Hi again,

No problem. Here are the broken links that I found:

(broken link #1)

(broken link #2)

It’d be great if you would consider replacing one of the links to a link to this page on my site: quicksprout.com/greatest-post-ever.

I’ve got great feedback on it and I think it would be a perfect replacement for those broken links.

Thanks!

(your name)

Template 13 (The long shot)

This is best for sites that rock the 1997 GeoCities look. Because the response rate is so low, this email is simply intended to see if there’s a warm body running the site. If so, you can spend time pitching them.

SUBJECT: IS (THEIRSITE) STILL ACTIVE?

Hello,

I stumbled across your today and found some great info (and a few broken links).

Just checking to see if you still update the site.

Thanks,

(name)

Template 14 (Send this email as independent third party, and not as a website owner)

Subject : there’s something wrong with your site

[insert their first name], I was browsing your website and noticed that you have a broken link :(. You can find it on [link of page with broken link], and it’s the [insert anchor text of broken link] link.

As a avid reader of [insert their site name], I love reading anything you write about, such as [insert article on their website], and anything you link out to. sadly, I couldn’t find the article you were link to, but I did happen to find another good webpage on the same topic: [insert url to webpage that you are building links to]. You should check it out, and if you like it, you probably want to switch the links.

I know you are busy and probably get millions of emails a day, but i hope this one was helpful. I just wanted to help you out for once as [insert their site name] has changed my life.

Cheers,

[random person name]

Subject : Website Form Comments

Hi admin, i was browsing your website this morning and noticed several broken links on this page [link of the page]. I was wondering if this contact form was the best way to forward you a short list that i jotted down?

Also, I was wondering if you still accept site suggestions? I have a favorite [link] site that I like to buy from when the birthday/holidays roll around for my son. I Think it might be a good fit for your list. Let me know

Take care.
