Although email is not the most personal way to communicate, in some situations, this quality can be a benefit. Email is a great way to introduce two people; it’s less awkward than setting up a phone call or a meeting between strangers, and it allows the parties to respond at their own convenience. Compose a new email and include both people in the “To” field. The subject line should be very specific - using the word “Introduction,” or “Intro,” does not provide enough information. It should include the names of each person, and if applicable, the names of their companies as well. In the body of the email write a little bit about each person, and then write why you are making the introduction. If you are writing an email to introduce yourself, make it very clear why you are writing the person...and how you got their contact information. Don’t just ask for a favor, make sure there’s some benefit for them in connecting with you. If you were introduced by someone else, Cc that person in your reply to alert them that the introduction was received.
