When should I use this?

This template can be used when you want to reach out to someone you do not know personally in order to ask for their insights or advice on a specific topic or industry. This type of outreach is commonly referred to as “cold outreach” because you are initiating contact with someone without any prior relationship.

Cold outreach can be an effective way to build connections and gather information, but it is important to approach it with care and consideration for the person you are contacting. Make sure to personalize the email to the specific person you are reaching out to, and be respectful of their time and expertise.

It is also a good idea to have a clear purpose in mind for your outreach and to be specific about what you are looking for. This will help the person you are contacting understand the context of your request and how they might be able to help.
