Keep it short and simple but do all the important bits.
Would you add www.clientsite.co.uk/ to your page www.yoursite.com/uk/en/careers/student/offices?
They have discounts for buying online and no credit card charges and serve the area your users live in.
1. Informal, personal where I can get the recipient's name form the website 2. Not a lot to read, tells them exactly what I want and where I want it (i.e. Don't make them think!) 3. Tells them why giving me a link is good for their users 4. Tells them why giving me a link makes their site better 5. Doesn't make any wild promises on my site, or suggest anything spammy 6. Doesn't take a lot of my time to replicate or personalise, I can shift a lot of these in a day if needed
Don't overthink this. If you are in doubt, just send the email. I have had PR 9 backlinks using this method. Follow up if you need to.

Would it be possible to add the dancewear site Dance (www.sitename.com) to your useful links section?
Just as background on the business:
Dance was launched 5 years ago, and has since built up to be one of the largest online dance suppliers in Europe, shipping to Italy, France, Germany as well as the UK and a range of other countries worldwide. Move specialise in adult and children's dancewear for ballet, ballroom, salsa, tap, character, street and jazz dance and have recently launched their own in-house range.
Do feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or would like to discuss this further.
'2 A softer approach'
My name is XXXXX and I work for an online marketing agency called XXXXXXXXX. We are currently working with a TYPE OF SITE called NAME+URL to try and enhance their online profile, and one way we are looking to do this is through maximising our exposure across quality TYPE OF SITE sites such as your own. I notice you have an area on the site for useful links, would it be possible to consider SITE NAME for inclusion in this section? We believe it would be beneficial and helpful for your users but of course it’s entirely in your judgement – take a look at the site and see what you think!
Just as background on the business:
As I mentioned above, we are merely touching base to see if you would like to link – if you don’t feel it would be beneficial that’s absolutely fine (we won’t get upset!). If you do have any feedback on the site or anything on it, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll pass it on to the SITE NAME team! Do let me know if you have any additional questions.
