Hello I hope all are doing well here.  How formal should an email be?  I think most clients will read on their phone and shorter the better?  Also, I am much better on the phone.  How can I best use email to receive a phone call from a potential client?  Thanks.

    As far as the email is concerned, I am a fan of short emails. So if you can communicate what the email is about and what you'd like them to do next, that should work. Add links at the bottom (signature) to establish trust.

    Mention your phone number in the email and make it clickable (tel:phonenumber).

    Try dropping in short video messages in your clients inbox by signing up for loom.com (affiliate of zoom). Something short and sweet to touch base and ask for a call to action like schedule a follow-up (through your pipedrive scheduler). You'll have to try it to see if it's worth incorporating into your prospect workflow.

    yes! Shorter emails are almost always better!

    Also agree with Jennie - using a program like loom or I prefer covideo - it lets you overlay your video on any website which is really handy. I've put it over my lead magnet, their own website, or even a contract and gave them instructions on how to sign it.
