Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be on the receiving end of all your college recruiting letters? It’s time to think about “Getting Personal” with the college coaches. When you are initially trying to get exposure it’s time consuming to read the bios and do your research. But at the end of the day, it can really pay off.
First off, don’t send emails out that say, “Dear Coach,” and exclude the last name. Also, it’s not a good idea to use email marketing software. It’s nice to be able to track which coaches open your emails and which do not but it’s clear that you are using software to do so. It will seem that you are not taking the time and consideration to contact each program.
Always include the mascot for the program. For example a proper way to end your email would be, “Go Red Raiders!” or “Go Ducks!”
