The Email Checklist for Designers

Written by Robert Williams

Why this works…

Because Folyo depends on our customers winning projects to make money, and we never take referral fees – our only incentive is to help you win more work.

So over the years we compiled the best tips we found for increasing your response rate. Check this list before you hit send on an email.

Remember, clients on Folyo come from all over the world and each one should be approached individually. What works for one client might not work for another.

That said, this checklist will help you use best practices that can increase your chances and double or triple you response rate.

I help underwater design agencies fix staff shortages quickly and come back up for air. I run Folyo, a private referral community of product designers, and I host Freelance, a podcast about how to work independently.

The best clients come from referrals

Folyo is a product design referral newsletter and community for designers and agencies looking to get more client work. Members get exclusive product design opportunities sent to their inbox almost daily.
