Introducing two people over email can be a great way to facilitate new professional or personal connections. Whether you are introducing a colleague to a potential client, or introducing a friend to a mutual acquaintance, there are a few key steps you can follow to make the introduction as smooth and successful as possible.
- Start with a clear subject line: A clear and concise subject line will help the recipients understand the purpose of the email and encourage them to open it. For example, “Introduction: [Name of Person 1] and [Name of Person 2]” or “Meeting Request: [Name of Person 1] and [Name of Person 2]”.
- Explain the connection: In the first paragraph of the email, explain how you know each person and why you are introducing them. This context will help the recipients understand the significance of the introduction and why they should be interested in connecting.
- Include brief bios: The next paragraph should include brief bios of each person you are introducing. This could include their job title, company, and a few key accomplishments or areas of expertise.
- Suggest a meeting or next steps: Depending on the purpose of the introduction, you may want to suggest a meeting or call to discuss potential collaboration or simply encourage the recipients to get in touch with each other. Be sure to include contact information for each person, as well as any relevant details about availability or time zones.
Here is an example of how you might introduce two people over email:
Subject: Introduction: John Doe and Jane Smith
I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to introduce you to John Doe and Jane Smith. I met John through our work at [Company], and he is the CEO of [Company]. Jane is a colleague of mine at [Company] and has expertise in [Expertise].
I thought the three of us could connect to discuss potential opportunities for collaboration. John, Jane, and I are all available for a call next Tuesday at 10am PT. Please let me know if that time works for you, and I will send a calendar invite.
Best, [Your Name]
John Doe | CEO | [Company] | [Email] | [Phone] Jane Smith | [Title] | [Company] | [Email] | [Phone]
In this example, the email explains the connection between the sender and the two people being introduced, provides brief bios for each person, and suggests a meeting to discuss potential collaboration. By following these steps, you can confidently and effectively introduce two people over email.
