Copywriting: The key to persuading a potential prospect into accepting what it is you are offering, always comes back to this topic of copywriting. This is where people often go wrong. By sending out thousands of un-personalized, generic e-mails, letters and faxes your potential market gets turned off.
In my professional career, there are so many prospects available that I often find myself deleting e-mails if they even look the least bit like a piece of spam. The key take away lesson here, is that I made that decision before I even opened up the e-mail.

Included within all professional PE or buyout firm directories are the business details and contact details for key personnel within the firm to which you can then focus your attention upon. This is the greatest and fastest way to raise capital from PE firms.
