Last one! Tweet to Elon Musk. https://imgur.com/a/l5ZDKC9
He's obviously a big fish, so I want to go above and beyond. Any ideas to make the Tweet special?
Another angle is marketing: “Here are 10 veterans who want to work at Tesla! Would love it if you can drop in for 2 minutes and let them know what they need to do” (post pic of all 10 vets) etc

My man! It worked, thank you!

How does this sound with a new email chain.

I'm Jameel, the founder of Fall In. I was also a Partner at GrowthTeam with Chris Sheng, building growth strategies for our clients. This November, I'm hosting a growth hacking workshop during a veterans' hackathon, and I'd love to have you as a guest speaker. Would you be interested in a 15-minute guest-speaking slot? We have perhaps one of the most uniquely skilled service-minded participants in our hackathon, and I'd love to chat sometime next week about time and availability. Here's a link to schedule a meet.

From FB:
"Thanks Jameel. Unfortunately our budget and roadmap is full for 2020 but I’ll happily share this with our Veterans community. Good luck with the event!."

My reply:
No worries. By the way, when do you think would be a good timeframe to circle back for our future events?

FB's reply:
"September would be great. Thank you!"

From FaceBook:
"September would be great. Thank you!"

I sent a reply last week in the same email thread, subj line: I would like to change the world w/you:
Jameel here from Fall In. I wanted to loop you in on our upcoming veterans' Hackathon on November 5-7th. We aim to register ~200 veterans, a similar count to our previous one in April, where we had the Co-Founder of Twitch and Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg address our attendees. We'd love to have Facebook represented also. We expect it could be a wise recruiting channel for you as well.

I'd love to show you the winners gallery we set up on FrameVR and how Facebook can fit into our next event. Do you have time for a brief call this week or next?

In the meantime, check out our Spring '21 winners and guest speeches @ http://fallin.today/

Amazing. Thanks!

So I connected with the founder of Skillbank in April '21, and they replied back with:

"Thanks for reaching out. We don't quite have the bandwidth right now to work with hackathons. I'm hoping in the future we can explore it again. Please keep us in the loop for your future events!"

Hi @sole-fields, I could use some help with cold emails again if you're available. Could I compensate you for your time this time around? jameel@fallin.today

jameel · 249d ago

Love it!

P.S you're invited as well:)

We connected the 1st time over a Tweet - https://twitter.com/JakeWoodTR/status/1356708146115317762?s=20

The copy I shared was my 3rd cold email to him. No response.

This is the 4th email I'm planning to send:
"Hey Jake - Jameel here from Fall In. Promise this is my last email. I’m excited to share one of the veterans we confirmed to attend, Florent Groberg - Medal of Honor Recipient, will be dropping by Fall In on April 2nd @ 4 PM PST. We’d love it if you would stop by and hear what he has to say. Thanks again for your time."

My first email:
"My name is Jameel and I am a USMC veteran and the founder of a company called Fall In. We host remote veteran hackathons, and since you liked our hackathon Tweet, would you be interested in being our keynote judge on April 4th? We think this is an event veterans will never forget.

Let me know if this sounds interesting to you and if you’d like more information."

Appreciate your help on this!

jameel · 251d ago

Thank you for doing this:)

Hi Jake,

Jameel here. Formerly @ 1st Btn, 1st Marines. I’m writing to follow up on our plan to include you as a guest speaker at the veterans' hackathon. We confirmed the Co-Founder of Twitch, but our veterans want you to drop in instead. They look forward to meeting you, even if you stopped by for 60 seconds! Just say the word and we can send out a calendar invite for the 4th of April and get your snacks and refreshments covered through a food delivery platform of your choice.

Let us know if you’re available that weekend so we can stay tuned for any changes.
Our hackathon is sponsored by Operation Code and it would be a towering sense of honor if you dropped by.

Cheers,
Jameel Matin
Founder @ https://fallin.today/
