Hi [NAME],

I saw that you have been working in the natural gas industry for over 10 years. You have clearly been working hard to get where you are at! Your work experience looks really impressive!

I've been a software developer for 20+ years but I don't have a lot of experience in the natural gas industry. I'm wanting to learn what kinds of tools I should be building that would be helpful to schedulers.

As a scheduler, is there any online tool that could help make your life easier? Do you have any suggestions of what I should be building?

Right now I'm focused on building centralized, mobile-friendly, easy-to-use pipeline informational postings, but if there is something else that would be helpful, I'm definitely open to any and all suggestions!

Thanks,
Anthony

Decided to try a more authentic approach.

Hi [NAME],

Congratulations on making it to a gas scheduler role! It looks like you have been working really hard over the years to get where you are at (my brother is a pipeline controller and I know how hard it is to get your foot in the door in the industry).

You also have a beautiful dog (or four dogs?)! Growing up we had a black lab named Shadow that I would "walk" by having him pull me a mile around our neighborhood on rollerblades - he could run a mile pulling me in under four minutes - that brings back some really good memories!

Anyway, I've been a software developer for 20+ years but I don't have a lot of experience in the natural gas industry. I'm wanting to learn what kinds of tools I should be building that would be helpful to schedulers.

As a scheduler, is there any online tool that could help make your life easier? Do you have any suggestions of what I should be building?

Right now I'm focused on building centralized, mobile-friendly, easy-to-use pipeline informational postings, but if there is something else I should be focusing on, I'm definitely open to any and all suggestions!

Thanks,
Anthony

Hey [NAME], thanks for connecting!

As an [POSITION] (I believe for a [TYPE OF COMPANY]?), are there any energy websites or tools you wish existed or a website that does exist, that you wished worked better?

The reason I ask is because I'm very early in the process of building a centralized website for the energy industry to provide public data tools, news, a directory, and community/networking. I'm trying to figure out what needs there are in the industry that aren't currently being filled.

Is there any public data you wish you had better insight/access to?

Thanks,
Anthony

Hey [NAME],

As a natural gas scheduler, do you have any frustrations with pipeline informational postings?

The reason I ask is because I'm very early in the process of building a centralized, mobile-friendly natural gas informational postings website.

Is there any kind of notification tool, data visualization, or some other feature that I should build that would be helpful to schedulers?

Thanks,
Anthony

Hi [NAME],

As an oil & gas industry veteran, are there any oil & gas websites or tools you wish existed or a website that does exist, that you wished worked better?

The reason I ask is because I'm very early in the process of building a centralized website for the oil & gas industry to provide community/networking, a directory, news, and public data tools.

As a [JOB] I'm assuming (maybe incorrectly) that you don't need public data tools. But is there some feature that you wish existed on a website?

Thanks,
Anthony

Hi [NAME], quick question: Is there any public natural gas data you need that is frustrating to use or access?

I believe you trade natural gas stocks based on your posts. I'm a software developer looking to build data tools for the oil & gas industry (things like centralized informational postings, a FERC filing database, tracking permits, interactive EIA reports, interactive BHI rig reports, etc.)

Is there any public data that you wish was easier to use or access?

My current LinkedIn strategy is to send out about 20 connections a day Tuesday - Friday and then send 2 cold messages Tuesday - Friday to people who have accepted my connection request.

Eventually, I'd like to get those numbers up to 100 connection requests sent a week and 5 cold messages sent Tuesday - Friday for 20 messages sent a week.

When a connection request is accepted, I add them to my CRMJot.com account. My goal is to write the messages out at least a day before so when I send the message, all I have to do is copy and paste it from CRMJot into LinkedIn.

(I figured I'd try my cold outreach message on you and see what you think...but really, is there any website feature you wish existed? 😀)

Cold Outreach Report
Sent 27 LinkedIn Connection Requests
Service Promoting: PipeRiv.com

The connection requests were sent to 9 users in a group I'm wanting to target and then 18 connection requests were sent to similar/suggested users that LinkedIn was displaying.

The group seemed to have some users who didn't have job positions that really matched with the group so I skipped a few users in the group.

I thought LinkedIn limited connection requests to 20 per day on the free account so I was surprised I could send 27.

As I've worked through cold outreach, I realized that I didn't really enjoy building what I was selling and I was getting feedback to build more tools that I didn't enjoy building or selling.

I've wanted to build tools for the energy industry for a long time and figured if I'm going to be selling, I should sell something I enjoy working on. I went back to the drawing board and created a new site:
https://www.piperiv.com

I just launched it yesterday. My plan is to spend the majority of my work time to continue selling and building the site. My assumption is if I keep focused on it, I'll eventually gain some momentum.

Hi [Name], quick question: Is there any public data you need in the oil & gas industry that is frustrating to use or access?

Based on your Twitter account, I'm assuming you work in the field.

I'm a software developer looking to build data tools for the oil & gas industry (things like tracking permits, centralized info postings, a FERC filing database, interactive EIA reports, interactive BHI rig reports, etc.)

Is there any data that you wish was easier to use or access?

Hi [Name], quick question: Do you have any frustrations accessing data when you are doing your research?

I'm a software developer looking to build data tools for the oil & gas industry (things like centralized info postings, a FERC filing database, interactive EIA reports, interactive BHI rig reports, etc.)

I saw your posts and wanted to see if there was any public data you wish you could access easier?
