What is an introductory email?

Introductory emails are used to share details about you with someone else. For example, you may have just started in a new role, have a new boss, or been joined by a new colleague. You may also want to expand your network and reach out to professional and personal contacts.

Put simply, introduction emails are about establishing connections!

Introduction emails are basically the way that business is done. It’s now what you know, it’s who you know. Everybody knows it, but nobody says it. When you start making introductions, you’ll find you build a network that can give you a huge boost. Try it. It works.

But how do you introduce yourself in an email? Here are 5 introductory email samples to illustrate the fundamentals and format.

How to introduce yourself in an email

At this point, you should understand what introduction emails are and have seen some samples. Now it's time to help you understand the format and write better intro emails!

The good news is that introductory emails typically share the same format. There are three steps to writing compelling introduction emails, including:

  • Subject line
  • Body copy
  • Sign-off/next steps

In this part f our guide, we go into greater detail to show you how to build your intro emails. We begin with the subject line!

Introduction email subject line

It all starts with the subject line! The introduction email subject line is the first thing the reader will see, so make it as clear as possible.

Here is a sample of introduction subject lines to get you started:

  • (Your name) Introducing myself
  • Great to meet you (your name)
  • It’s my first day at work
  • Great to e-meet you
  • Reaching out to say hello!

These are simple and basic but do the business. Don’t be afraid to create subject lines that are as easy to write as this. Life is too short to struggle with subject lines (trust us). To learn more about email opening sentences, click here.

Introduction email body copy

The introduction email body copy begins with a "hello" or a "hi" and the person's name. If you're emailing a team, use an intro like "Hi colleagues" or "Hi guys" to greet them.

Next, start by introducing yourself and explaining who you are. In this example, we're messaging a team on our first day at work in the marketing department:

"My name is (your name). I've just joined (company name). Today is my first day! I'm going to be working as the (role name)."

Great start! Now, provide some information about you, such as where you've worked, your skills, and why you're excited about starting at a new company!

"I'm joining from (company name), where I spent the last 5 years. I'm an experienced marketer, and I'm keen to get to work with you guys! My main skills are (list skills)."

Be positive, and show you're enthusiastic.

"I'm excited to meet you guys and work together to help (company name) grow this year."

Introduction email sign-off/next steps

And now, the end is near... It's time to sign off your email.

Because you're aiming to create a connection, you'll want to share contact details.

"You can contact me at (insert details). I'd love to hear from you. You can access my calendar and book a meeting if you'd prefer to meet face-to-face."

Now, provide a sign-off (kind regards, many thanks, excited to get started, etc.). You can explore more email closings in this guide.

Finally, add your name, contact details, and professional signature, and you're ready to click send.

And that's how you introduce yourself in an email. Before sending, review our checklist and avoid making these common message mistakes!

Become an intro email pro

Basic introduction emails cover all the critical things, but they can be boring. Following the format is great, but you’ll want to put a little fun into the function. Right?

We’re all about creating content with personality, so here are some of the principles we live by:

  • You’re not a robot, so don’t write like one. Instead, focus on creating introduction emails that are packed full of personality. That doesn’t mean cracking jokes, but it does mean building connections. Add some of yourself to every email.
  • Appeal to the individual you’re making an intro to. You can call this “expressing value” and it essentially means outlining what’s in it for them. Could the intro help their business, boost their profile, or increase profit? Then mention it.
  • Balance details with email length. Intro emails must establish why you’re messaging but be sure not to overload them with information. We’re all busy (and bored of looking at our phones) so keep your emails short and straight to the point.
  • Avoid errors in every intro message by checking and double-checking. It’s especially important when engaging someone in authority that your messages are accurate. Always read, re-read, and check to ensure everything is 10% right.
  • Use technology. That’s right, we’re suggesting you try out some AI writing technology to help improve your emails. HIX.AI's email generator is transforming what’s possible with email writing technology. You can create intro emails in seconds, all at a much higher standard than many of us can manage (the blog writer included!).

OK, so some of these points are fun – but the point is that your intro email must be more than professional, they must be personal too.

Conclusion

Learning how to introduce yourself in an email is a great skill that we need to know to power our careers and build connections. The important thing is to stick to the format and learn from our samples. Be positive, inspire people with your personality, always write professionally and proofread before sending. Do all that, and your introduction emails will always hit the target.
