Bạn đang xem: 10 effective ways to say "looking forward to hearing from you"
One way lớn achieve this is lớn swap tired, meaningless phrases lượt thích, "I am looking forward khổng lồ hearing from you," with more actionable requests lượt thích, "I appreciate your quiông xã response."
You"ll stand out from the competition, increase your chances of eliciting a response, và ensure you move sầu more đơn hàng along quickly.
"I look forward to lớn hearing from you" is a comtháng tin nhắn sign-off. While this sign-off conveys familiarity và warm sentiment, it isn"t always appropriate because it can convey the wrong message. In this context, the sign-off could be perceived as passive-aggressively demanding a response, it could be easily forgotten or ignored without clear directives, and it leaves you (the sender) in the position of waiting lớn hear from them khổng lồ make your next move.
If you"re waiting for a colleague or connection to get baông chồng khổng lồ you, you might consider using one of the following "I look forward khổng lồ hearing from you" alternatives. Instead, we suggest using one of the following alternatives to better convey your request, ideal timeframe, và steps both you và the recipient can take lớn work more expeditiously via email.
1. "Could you return all proposal feedbachồng by Friday?"
Giving your prospects a deadline lớn meet takes the guesswork out of your timeline. You"ve sầu removed your prospect"s tendency lớn star an gmail for later or think, "I"ll get to lớn that next week." Instead, you"ve stated your expectations up front & given them a direct goal to meet.
If your deadline"s flexible, you might add, "Does this timeline meet your expectations?" This allows your prospect to lớn push back if they"ll need more time. Make sure there"s always a deadline, however. If your prospect replies, "Actually, I think I"ll need a few more days," say, "Not a problem. Let"s move the deadline khổng lồ next Wednesday." You"ve sầu given them the time they need while sticking with a firm goal date.
2. "Could you help me find the answer here?"
Humans generally lượt thích helping other humans. Use this fact khổng lồ your advantage. This approach is especially helpful early in the sales process when you"re identifying the decision maker — or even make initial contact.
Sending an email that says, "I"d like lớn speak with the person in purchasing at your company, but I"m not sure who lớn reach out to lớn. Could you help me?" is much more persuasive than simply saying, "Are you the person in charge of purchasing at Geo Enterprises?"
3. "I saw X & thought of you. What are your thoughts?"
If your prospect has gone dark or you"re having trouble getting them lớn meet one particular requirement — stop hitting them over the head with the same ask. By this time, they"re probably immune khổng lồ it.
Instead, sover them a casual, non-work-related tin nhắn such as, "I saw Oklahoma had some tornadoes last weekover. Were any cđại bại to you?" There"s less pressure khổng lồ reply and a greater likelihood they will, because it"s a personal question. Once you"ve gotten them talking again, you can ask the business questions you need answered.
4. "It would really help me out if you could reply by Wednesday."
This is a similar approach to lớn number two. If you need an answer quickly, ask for help. Frame the request as a favor instead of a demand, saying, "It would really help me out — và help us stick to our timeline — if you could give sầu me an answer by the kết thúc of the day on Thursday."
When you hit or miss a deadline, that reflects on you — even if you"re reliant on someone else khổng lồ get there. We"ve all been in those situations, & most of us (including your prospects) are more than willing to step up và get you the results you need.
5. "If you"re too busy khổng lồ handle this request, is there someone else I can reach out to?"
This is a direct approach — and one khổng lồ only use when absolutely necessary. It"s essentially presenting your prospect with a light threat by explaining, if they don"t respond, you"ll go around them.
Reserve sầu this for situations in which the khuyến mãi is on the verge of falling through. For example, if you sent the contract several weeks ago, have sầu touched based several times, và have sầu still heard nothing back.
6. "If I don"t hear from you by X date, I"ll assume we"re good lớn move sầu forward here."
When you have a request that doesn"t necessarily require an answer — like the final draft of a contract or a proposed timeline — this approach works well. Simply sover the document or update & say, "If I don"t hear from you by Friday, I"ll assume you don"t have any feedbachồng and move forward."
This sets a firm timeline và puts the burden on them to lớn get baông chồng khổng lồ you with an answer quickly.
7. "I appreciate your quiông xã response."
This is a gentle nudge for prospects. It communicates you"re serious about a response without being forceful or vaguely threatening. Drop it at the end of an tin nhắn or add a reason why their prompt response is important. For example, "I appreciate your quick response on this matter because our legal team is waiting on an answer before drawing up the contract details."
8. "Let me know if anything changes."
This is another opportunity khổng lồ put the responsibility bachồng on your prospect. If all that"s required of them is to alert you to lớn feedback or changes lớn the existing agreement, ask them lớn keep you in the loop và leave sầu it at that. Unless they reach out, you can move forward freely.
9. "I haven"t heard from you regarding
. Usually when this happens, it means . Is this correct?"
Save this as another last resort. If there"s a 50/50 chance the giảm giá is lost anyway, try this as a final effort lớn elicit a response. Simply say, "I haven"t heard baông chồng from you regarding our final budgetary agreement. Usually when this happens, it means we haven"t met a mutually agreeable price & the deal can"t move forward. Am I correct in assuming this is the case here?"
There is a chance they"ll reply, "Yes, we"re unable lớn move sầu forward with a contract at this time." But you might jolt them baông xã into lớn action & jumpstart the deal once more. Either way, you"ll have sầu a definitive sầu answer allowing you lớn move sầu on.
10. "If you"re not the right person, would you mind connecting me with the best person to lớn help me with this request?"
If you"re not in correspondence with the correct person khổng lồ fulfill your request, and gmail ending in "I look forward lớn hearing from you" might result in your message being ignored. If you aren"t already in cthất bại communication or partnership with the recipient of your gmail, ask them if they"d be willing to connect you khổng lồ the person whocanhelp you.
