Hey there! I’m back with another crazy growth hack. This time it’s for Slack. I will tell you how to maximize your reach & get clients from Slack. I’m pretty sure you are aware of Slack. If not, don’t even bother, this article isn’t for you.
Enter the Turf: Get into those Slack Channels
Now, the first & most basic move will be to join Slack groups. The point here is not only to join groups in your niche but also to join the groups that contain your target audience.
A simple example is if you are a design agency, don’t just join design groups but also join groups with your possible target audience, like founders, startup owners, & much more.
Join all those groups.
BONUS- I’ve got a top-secret list of handpicked Slack Groups just for you. Go on this list & find groups in your niche.
Now, let’s get this straight at once- DO NOT SPAM!
Do not spam any groups at all or else be prepared to get kicked out.
In most slack groups, you are allowed to introduce yourself & talk about your product, brand, or website. Grab this opportunity to talk about your brand & plugin your product there.
If not the introduction, many slack groups continuously ask about what you are working on this week or about your brand in their special channels. So go on & plugin your product. But the key here is that you must add value to the community.
Find more exciting ways to talk about your brand & start real engagement with the community.
Talk about yourself, your product, how it’s valuable, & much more. Engage with the members, ask about their products & earn more recognition.
BONUS: In these groups, even if somebody isn’t going to buy directly, these guys are usually opinion leaders. So once they know about your product & they feel it adds value to the community, they might refer it to other people or spread the word about it.
It’s one way to get clients from Slack.
Invade the Territory: Get Data from Those Channels
Let’s talk about another way. Now that you’ve joined these groups, it’s time to make the most out of it.
First, let me say it loud & clear. Cold emails are not dead & they still work really really really great in 2022.
So we’ll start by scraping the data of all these slack group members by using this Slack Group Scraper. You can refer to this tutorial to understand how to use the tool. Ideally, scrape around 10 or more groups containing around 10k members. This will give us the data of around 100k members. If we even succeed in getting emails of 1k members, it would be great. Why? Because these 1k people will be laser targeted for your particular product/service.
It’s time to start with your cold email outreach to get clients from Slack.
Now, let’s note a few points for those cold emails to get clients from Slack. You don’t want to ruin it with such a great audience.
- Write shorter, to-the-point emails. Do not bore them with enormous emails with crappy, needless information.
- Make it something quick to respond to & actionable. Do not ask for too much information.
- And for the last time, do not use a template. It makes you sound spammy/phony. If you really need to use one, make minor tweaking & try to personalize it. Or even better use the template as a model & write from scratch.
To be honest, cold emailing is no rocket science. It’s just common sense put to the correct use. And it can do wonder if you want to get clients from Slack.
To sum it up, the two ways to get clients from Slack for outreach are to get in groups with your Target Audience & start engagement while adding value. The second way is to scrape all the groups & do a cold email outreach campaign.
That’s all from me!
This is a fully tried & tested method to get clients from Slack.
