The Proper Way to Reach Out to People Online

I'm no stranger to making friends online. Opening up meaningful correspondence, especially with someone I admire, is something I love doing. It's about reaching out and giving a warm, tight, virtual hug to someone. These days, it's so much easier to reach practically anyone because of social media and emails. The first piece of fan mail I wrote was to Janet Jackson when I was 8. I'm not exactly sure what I wrote, but I remember that I also sent her a First Communion photo (oy!).

This can go one of 3 ways: the correct way to start a conversation, the wrong way, and trolling. 

We'll start with trolling. It happens. I've been on the receiving end of it, but it's something I easily shrug off. Don't troll people. It screams, "I hate my life so I'm making it my mission to try to make you hate yours." Take up knitting instead. 

The wrong way to reach out someone is to write a message like this. 

Hey. I heard you write. What can you tell me about writing. Can you help me with it?

I promise you I will not respond to messages like this, and I can assure you that writing to anyone with this flat tone will end with the same result. No response. Immediately upon reading this, I thought. Uh, Hi. Who are you, and why should I do anything for you? No greeting, No introduction, Just GIMME GIMME GIMME.

Dear Coco Chanel,

My name is Veronica, and I hope this message reaches you beautifully. I wanted to take time today to write you a line to let you know how much you've inspired me. You've revolutionized an industry and have taught lil' ol' me to adore my body by way of wearing your designs. 

(You get the gist.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this today, and I hope you enjoy a gorgeous week. 



See? Old-fashioned, letter-writing goodness. Tell the recipient of your message how they make you feel. It's feedback they'll never forget, and coming from a sincere place will result in the reader feeling your genuine emotions. 

This also helps when you're writing copy. Use this format. It'll help you get more response.
