Chinese New Year messages for leads you haven’t messaged in a long time

The Lunar New Year brings excitement and hopes for a fresh start. And if there are leads you haven’t messaged in a while (maybe months or even years), now is the perfect time to do so.

The most important thing to remember when trying to re-engage old leads is that you need to be as personalised as possible. Otherwise, your message could fall flat or sound like you’re only reaching out to make a sale.

In your Chinese New Year message, you should try to include any small details you remember about the lead to show that they’re more than just a contact on a list that you’re mass-messaging.

Remember that you’re not trying to make a sale immediately. Instead, you’re replanting the root for your relationship with a lead after a long period of silence. 🌱 It could take multiple touchpoints to warm up the lead again and make them want to buy from you.

“Hey Louis, Happy Chinese New Year! 🐲🧧🍊 It’s been a while, so I wanted to reach out to send my well wishes for you and your parents.

May you achieve all your biggest goals and seemingly impossible dreams in the year ahead!”
