    1. If you are starting an introduction over the phone or in person, it is considered good manners to make a pleasant sounding greeting. For example, “hello, this is John Smith.” It can be either short or long, but the purpose is to say hello. Use the greeting to set the tone of your letter. In addition to making a greeting, you may also want to introduce yourself. Be sure to state where you are from, how long you have been living at your current residence, what you do, your position in the organization, and so on. You can even add a question to give some insight into your interest in the other person. This helps to create a connection. If you know that the other person is from another city or state, ask about their home or work environment. 

    2. After you have greeted the other person and provided information about yourself, it is a good idea to ask about the person’s life. This can help to establish an immediate connection and build rapport. Some people feel nervous talking about themselves for the first time, so it might be helpful to ask questions about hobbies, sports, children, family, and travel. This also helps to get to know you better. You can also make comments about the weather, sports, or local news in the area. 

    3. At the end of the email or letter, give the reason why you are sending it. This will make the other person more interested in your letter and you will feel better about your communication. For example, “I hope this finds you well,” or “Thank you for your help.” You may even want to include a statement about how you found the other person’s information on the company’s website. 

    4. After you have expressed your interest in the other person, ask a few questions. This will help to make the conversation feel more like an actual meeting. It is very important to show that you are listening to the other person’s answer. Make sure to express that you understood the answer or respond with a comment that shows interest in what was said. Ask specific questions about the other person and give details about their interests and background. Some examples of questions would be “Where do you live?” or “What kind of work do you do?” 

    5. If you do not get a response from the other person within a reasonable amount of time, follow up. Most people will reply to your email if they are not on vacation, sick, or on holiday. You can also call them if the other person did not respond to your letter or phone call. Follow-up is very important, especially if you have reached out by email. You may want to ask about what they are working on at the moment, ask if there is anything that you could help with, or send an update of your business. This is also a good time to provide a reminder that you want to maintain a long-term relationship with the other person.
