Be specific - specify your product, benefits, reasons to choose you, what is your uniqueness or competitive advantage?
Keep it short and simple - avoid empty phrases, review each word in your mail and cut out everything that is not necessary to tell.
Define the goals - write down your main goal or any additional ones you want to achieve with your communication and keep it in mind specifically while writing.
Know your recipient - being personal is not only about greeting someone with their name. Make your research properly and get to know the most you can about your recipient. Let them know why have you chosen them.
Motivate them to write back - do not say your regards and goodbyes. Leave the conversation open and ask questions.
