It’s not surprising that break-up emails are popular in the dating world. They’re a simple way to end conversations and let go of people we don’t want anymore. So, how to break up with your prospects?

I know that in 2017 people break up by text message, at least I’ve heard it happens. And while this is a quick and painless way to end things with someone, there are some situations where texting just doesn’t work.

I’ve been dating someone for a while, and if they do not call or text me enough then I think it is disrespectful. It’s okay to break up with them over this.

When we break up with someone, it may not be the best idea to do so in a single moment. Sometimes people have regrets after breaking up and need time to think about what they’re doing.

My personal opinion is that we don’t like those who have hurt us and then expect to continue our relationship.

After a breakup, it can take time to get over the person and move on. This means that people often feel remorseful or drunk after breaking up with someone.

Many people wish for a single finite breakup moment, but in reality, it doesn’t always work that way. You think you are just sending one email and then the next thing you know, the breakup is over with, and sometimes when it’s done-you feel guilty or unfulfilled.

It’s not always enough to get prospects into the sales funnel. Prospects need multiple touches, account-based marketing, and sequence creation in order for it to work.

After six, eight, or ten touches on the issue of a breakup email with someone who ignores it for weeks at a time. The first thing wrong is believing that one single break-up email will cause enough remorse to make them respond again.

Falling vending machines, being chased by a hippo, fallen and can’t get up. Yes, these are funny but they have worn out their welcome.

Hint: If you sell into the tech space and are sending cheesy breakup emails, then I’ve got news for you. Bring your A-game. These days many people can see through corny humor so try to find something more subtle like a cute animal or cartoon character.

We think that all emails need to be a sequence and start gently. They should get more aggressive as the email goes on as we did with this breakup email example.
