Full List Introduction Templates:

 

Reasons to introduce people, and some helpful lines:

  • “You two should meet and discuss community”
  • “You two should connect on Bob’s Podcast”
  • “You two should chat about that new SaaS tool you were each raving about”
  • “You two should meet because you both love Copywriting”
  • “You two should connect since you both live in Portland”
  • “You two should chat over coffee since you will both be at the X Conference next week”
  • “Wanted to loop in Brian because he was just mentioning that he was interested in exploring X service. And that’s exactly what Suzanne (cc’ed) just reached out to me about”
  • “You two could form a great partnership since you are both in X industry”
  • “Adding Jeremy to this email. His area of expertise is X and I think he would love to hear more about your offer”
  • “You two should hop on a quick zoom call to see if you could refer some leads to each other”
 

How to introduce Do’s:

  • Keep it super short and sweet.
  • Mention why you think they should meet.
  • Include what they could talk about.
  • Compliment each of them.
  • Be willing to join them on the first call/meet up if they want.
  • Show that you have done your homework on both of them.
  • Point out each person’s area of expertise.
  • Include their LinkedIn profile for additional context.
  • Call out a recent big win for one of the people you are introducing to peak the other person’s interest.
  • Give them an easy out if they are too busy.
 

How to introduce Don’ts:

  • Decide that they have to work together. Let them make that decision after the meeting.
  • Schedule the actual call for them. They may not be ready to talk immediately.
  • Provide a full blueprint of the exact conversation they should have. Some conversations can go down a completely different path than you expected.
  • Guilt them into having a conversation if one of them isn’t interested.
  • Include all of their contact info. Let them share private contact info if they want to.
  • Make an intro just because you are doing someone a favor. Make sure it actually makes sense for them to connect.
  • Randomly introduce two people you don’t even know. Don’t act like you are doing them a favor if they don’t even know you.
  • Guarantee that they will hit it off. You don’t always know people as well as you think you do.
  • Force them to meet in person. Some people are much more comfortable emailing first.
  • Tell them they would hit it off just because they share one thing in common. Dig a little deeper to see if they have any personal similar interests.
  • Just give someone an email address and tell them to reach out. Help make a warm intro.
