Template for Email with Subject line : Closing The Loop

Hi [FirstName];

I haven’t heard back from you on [project/opportunity] so I’m going to assume you’ve gone in a different direction or your priorities have changed.

Let me know if we can be of assistance in the future.




That’s it.

What you are doing with this email is you are removing the emotional reasons for the prospect to continue to avoid you. You are stripping out your neediness by no longer feigning politeness, by not asking how their summer was or by being anything other than completely practical. You are saying, “I can read between the lines and you have decided we are not doing business together. No hard feelings – it’s just business. You can call me if things change.”
