3 Email Scripts to Get the Attention of an Online Star


Have you ever wanted to reach out to your
favourite online marketing rock star?

Maybe you wanted to get their attention to say hello, or you felt like reaching out to them to have some of their success rub off on you? Well, now you can. Here’s how to get the attention of a marketing rock star.

My first-hand experience of collaborating with, and reaching out to marketing rock stars has taught me an important lesson.

Marketing rock stars are super busy, in-demand entrepreneurs.

The last thing they want is to be hassled by people with a self-righteous attitude. ONE fatal error can immediately put your groupie career to an early grave. The worst possible mistake is to try and aggressively pitch a rock star without having some form of prior connection.

If you’re building a business… and looking to get under the radar of a marketing rock star – be it to pitch a guest blogging idea; a joint venture proposal; or simply to say, “Thank you, you rock! you need a little help from a friend.

OR some super cool groupie scripts to help you get noticed. Rock on sista!

Email script #1

Subject: A different kind of collaboration pitch, try me!

Hello <awesome rock star’s name>,

You don’t know me (yet), and I know you’re busy. So I promise to keep this message short. The last thing I want is to waste your time – because I know it’s <precious / finite / limited>.

I’m writing to you today with an important message. I think you’re going to like it. But if you allow me, I have to set the stage to help you understand my proposal.

That way you can make an informed decision.

So here goes: I’ve been quietly <following your journey / stalking you / admiring you from afar>for some time (in a non-freaky way, of course). You’ve taught me many lessons on building a successful business. And I’m grateful, to you.

I think you <rock / are awesome / are amazing>. You are a <change maker / rock star / super star / fearless leader>, in my world.

I’ve loved your <post / series / audio / video / webinar> on the topic of <insert topic here>.

And I’m always sharing your awesome content with my own <tribe / community / customers / clients> via <email / social media / newsletters>. So as you can see, I’m not just some <groupie / self-righteous dreamer / newbie> who pitches you on stuff without actually knowing you, already.

Which brings me to the reason for my email. I’ve got a fabulous idea for a <guest blog / joint venture> that would serve us both very well. I believe your <tribe / list / community / customers> would eat this up, because I see a huge demand for this right now.

Here goes…

<List blog title or joint venture idea>

<Give short overview – synopsis in 2-3 sentences>

That’s it. Short and sweet as promised. I’d so love to collaborate with you and if this is something of interest please <call me at xxx-xxxx-xxxx / email me at myemail@mydomain.com>.

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hear from you.

With love + gratitude,

<Your name>

Email script #2

Subject: Here’s a blast of gratitude for you, because…

You deserve it <rock star’s name>!

This is probably where you’d usually get bombarded with offers, and requests to buy stuff or feature someone on your awesome blog… or to <gift / shout / buy> them <a yearly subscription to your program / a lottery ticket so they can win the next million / an ice cream>.

But I won’t bore you with a pitch, because…

I just wanted to reach out to you and tell you how much I LOVE your work. I think I’ve developed a serious <lady crush / infatuation / groupie fever> about you.

But seriously, I’m <happily married / not crazy / not really a groupie – even so I behave like one right now>.

Fact is you make me a better <professional / blogger / businessperson / marketer / person>.

The thing is: your work has and continues to influence my style, the way I <insert what you do e.g. write> and how I serve my <tribe / clients / customers>.

And I wanted to reach out to you and say this:

THANK YOU <rock star’s name>!

Please keep up the fantastic work… and I hope you <name their next milestone / dream / wish / goal>.

With love + gratitude,

<Your name>

Email script #3

Subject: You rock my world, now it’s my turn to rock yours!

How? Good question <rock star’s name>!

Allow me to introduce myself. Even so I’m always hanging out on your <blog / website / Facebook page / forum / Twitter stream> you (probably) don’t know me.

And that’s quite all right, because you’re obviously a very busy person. Fact is I appreciate what you do and that’s why I’ll keep this message short and sweet.

I’ve developed this <awesome / fantastic /much needed / desperately wanted / cutting edge>product, and I’d like to give you a first peek, because I’m hoping you’ll be as <excited / over the moon / revved up> as I am to bring this to the market.

I’m also hoping that you’ll recognise the opportunity my new <baby / product / invention>brings to your business, because we can both turn this into an awesome <joint venture / profit / moneymaker / income / sideline>.

I’m offering you first choice at this, because you rock my world. And I’d be <delighted /over the moon / blown away with joy / ecstatic> to get a chance to work with you.

If this is something you want to explore in more detail, please <call me at xxx-xxxx-xxxx / email me at myemail@mydomain.com> so I can <send you / give you access to / mail you> the product for review. I have included a small appetiser in the hopes of tempting your appetite for more. Are you game?

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hear from you.

With love + gratitude,

<Your name>
