I think I see what you mean there. I have to talk about the exact situation that they are facing that causes the loss in profit margins or loss in revenue. Once they open up from there I can dig in, right?

For example, just right now I learned that one of the major problems these contractors face is competing with larger companies and losing big contracts to them despite giving smaller bids. It's a "trust" issue.

Dear xyz,

[Unique personalized sentence about their business, like a compliment].

I have some ideas on how I can help you get large contracts and compete against national companies without having to bid lower prices. Would you happen to be concerned about proving credibility by any chance?

Regards,

I made that email in order to get a response first to have a conversation, rather than just straight up ask for a meeting. I'll experiment around with asking for meeting vs trying to get a response, but for now I'm trying to get the "hook" correct where I can dig in and discover their pain points.

Thanks @Fox
Not to "butt in" but personally that email still reads off confusing, the second sentence mainly, on first read it sounds like you're asking them to prove their credibility to you. I'd reword it to get the point across with confidence, something like:

"I know proving credibility to clients and gaining trust can sometimes be difficult, is that something you might struggle with by any chance?"

Fox will likely help out better, but just my two cents!

Hi guys, I'm in the process of searching for web design clients and I want to go in person to their offices to speak with the owner/person in charge.
At what moment of the day do you recommend going in person?
Thank you in advance and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question, it's my first post !

the answer would vary (slightly or drastically) depending on your niche/industry etc. You have to experiment, record, and find out which is the best time in order to optimize your outreach system.
