    Craig,
    This was awesome! It’s been a vicious circle for me with this same format. I was told people don’t have time to read their emails. I never receive responses after three times with a follow up letter. This can be discouraging. I do space these emails so that I don’t sound pesty. But to be honest people these days don’t have time to read their emails.
    Do you suggest calling them personally?

    Thanks Terri! Only if they request you call them. The vast majority won’t answer or return your call. You can try it but if you don’t want to waste your time or “be a pest” don’t do it. I don’t call personally anymore UNLESS they request it.
