This week we were tasked with drafting a professional email to a contact on our target list. I chose to write a LinkedIn Mail to Kurt Schleicher, Creative Director of S3 Media. In this email I’m trying to get a sit down with Kurt to start our professional relationship. My end goal is to be offered the Communications Specialist position that is available.
Contact Name: Kurt Schleicher
Position: Creative Director of S3 Media
Contact Option: 2nd Degree Connection on LinkedIn. Email will be sent using LinkedIn Mail.
Subject Line: The Start of a Beautiful Friendship – Taylor Chapman: Communications Specialist
Hey Mr. Schleicher,
My name is Taylor Chapman and I have a passion for brand management and communication. I’ve been following S3 Media’s work for some time and your company has created some of the most functional and visually appealing designs that I’ve seen in a long time. Your work on the Machinery Supply website was particularly great. The color palette was really inspiring and the geometric buttons were incredibly unique!
I’m a recent graduate of Full Sail University. There i acquired the skills to manage a brand’s message and identity while creating innovative media that will grab the attention of an audience. My work for The City of Safety Harbor is a great example of my work, you can see some of it on my online portfolio: http://icetrey466.wix.com/taylorchapman .
I’d be very interested in meeting you in person and talking about a few ideas that I have about some of your clients, especially Hofbräuhaus. I have a background in craft beer, and this combined with my passion for design has led to some unique design elements that I think you’ll find interesting.
My schedule is flexible, I can meet with you any time that is convenient for you. If you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to email me at this address or call me at 813-597-6857. I’m looking forward to meeting you; I feel that I can learn a lot from you and your team.
All the best,
