I was ecstatic when I heard back from you yesterday about Job Title; it’s an incredible opportunity and I’m honored to have been extended an offer. However, I have decided to accept a competing offer.
It was a very tough decision for me because I’ve had such a great experience talking with you and everyone else on the team. One of the main reasons I chose to accept the other offer is explain reason.
I greatly appreciate your time and I so enjoyed learning more about the team and culture at Company Name. I would still love to keep in touch and I hope you and the team understand my decision.
Thank you again for your time and consideration. I wish you all the best, and I hope to talk again soon.
Send a message expressing your gratitude and excitement. If applicable, include any questions you have about immediate actions you need to take.
Excited to join the team!

Next, let’s review some tools to help you with your follow-up emails.
In addition to subject lines and templates, there are follow-up email tools with capabilities and features sure to keep your communication as efficient and professional as possible, no matter what type of follow up you’re sending.
1. HubSpot Email Tracking
HubSpot’s email tracking tool notifies you when any email you sent has been opened or clicked. Email tracking software places an invisible image pixel in your emails that can detect the exact time and date an email has been opened by a recipient. This tool helps inform your business decisions.
2. HubSpot Email Templates
You can also use HubSpot’s other available email templates to help optimize your approach to follow-up emails. Then, you can track the performance of different templates, save the best options, and automate your future follow ups.
3. HubSpot Meeting and Appointment Software
Another way to efficiently manage follow ups is to allow your potential customers, interviewers, or interviewees to schedule a meeting on your calendar, on their time.
This free tool reduces the unnecessary back-and-forth that tends to occur when arranging meetings, appointments, and interviews.
Check out LinkedIn for recent updates on specific companies and individuals. The platform is a great way to keep up with industry news, marketing campaigns, events, blog posts, and new products or services. You can then reference your findings in your follow-up email communication.
Use Templates to Write Remarkable Follow-Up Emails
Remarkable follow-up emails help you distinguish yourself among the rest, such as competitors or candidates you’re up against.
By writing a strong, attention-grabbing subject line, articulating your message clearly, and conveying your value, your follow-up email will stand out and pique the interest of any recipient. Use the templates we reviewed above and incorporate tools as needed to streamline your processes.
Then, hit “Send” on your follow-up email.
