A Question About Cold Contacting Artists Without Looking Like a Dumbass

Reader question I had to share:
I’m an up and coming producer out of Wellington, New Zealand. I was wondering if there have been any posts on the proper etiquette when getting in contact with artists to shop beats? ie, is one email enough, whether to give links to soundcloud/bandcamp or actually give a mediafire link to a beat tape, whether to give snippets vs full beats, or tagged/untagged beats etc? On the article I read about !llmind, he said reputation was everything - I wanna be able to come up as a respected beatsmith, and not look like a chump who’s just spamming to get his name out.
