Most cold email tutorials are focused on bulk email, sales funnels, business-to-business pitches, and other impersonal outreach. And they rely on spammy tactics that busy people are sick of.

Instead, use this course to guide your learning and practice as you develop your own personal approach to using cold email to expand your network, enhance your projects, and further your career by sending authentic emails to real people. You will:

  • Find the right person to contact
  • Write messages that people actually want to read
  • Use social proof to establish credibility
  • Proactively overcome objections
  • Deliver on successful emails & move past rejection

And to prove it works, I've broken down eight examples from my own career where cold email gave me a new opportunity.

By the end of the book, you'll have all the confidence you need to send the kind of email that can move you a thousand miles in a hundred words.

Hey there! I'm Philip Kiely, author of
Life-Changing Email.

I owe my success in business to effective cold email. From my first freelance client to my biggest projects to my best jobs, there is a cold email behind most lines on my résumé.

I also wrote Writing for Software Developers (over 1,000 copies sold) and work at Baseten as a technical writer. You may have heard me on Code Newbie, Side Hustle School, Software Engineering Radio, or another show. Outside of work, I'm a lifelong martial artist (currently studying Jiu Jitsu), an avid reader, and a dedicated football fan. I currently live in downtown Chicago.
