How to Respond to Email Introductions

So you asked a friend or peer to introduce you to someone and they made the introduction via email…awesome!! How are you supposed to respond?

Here is a very simple template you could use:

Hi PERSON YOU WERE INTRODUCED TO,

Thanks so much for the introduction PERSON WHO INTRODUCED YOU (moving to BCC to save your inbox).

Would love to find a time to chat! Really interested in hearing your perspective on x. Please let me know if you have a time that works for you and I will be sure to make it work.

Best,

YOUR NAME

This is a very simple framework but notice a few things. One…and critical…make sure you move the person who introduced you to BCC. It is annoying to leave them on the email chain so be the proactive person and move them off of it.

The other small thing is that you are thanking the person who introduced you. This is important as it shows you are being respectful of their time.

Try to respond quickly! ūüôā
