Online or in-person meetings should ALWAYS be followed with a follow-up email. Here’s what that email should include.
Post-meeting emails are important because they show that you value the person’s time and so you both can have a documented version of the meeting’s key takeaways.
It’s also a good opportunity to add a few CTAs (call to actions). Action items include:
It was great speaking with you yesterday. I really enjoyed our conversation about [what you discussed] and hearing your insights.
If you’d be willing, I have attached a doc outlining what we discussed. I would love the opportunity to speak with you further about this and a possible [partnership/collaboration]. How does a week from now sound?
Ps. I have a quarterly newsletter where I update people on my progress from the past three months. Can I add you to it?
