I'm a consultant with (at the moment) a business coach, who has been urging me to make some cold calls to prospective clients. I have been putting this off until I woke up in the middle of last night with the realisation that I wouldn't feel too bad about it IF I SENT OUT AN EMAIL FIRST.
So I have written an email -- all except for the very last sentence/paragraph in which I want to warn them that I'll be following up by telephone in a few days (assuming they don't get back to me immediately, of course). I can't work out how to phrase this without its sounding like a threat! Have you got any ideas? Or should I just invite them to contact me if they need me -- and follow up anyway?
