I think firstly start with greeting then I should introduce my self in politeness way.secondly, mention positive things about who I'm asking help from, and why I prefer his\ her help. After that, offer what I want from helper to do for me and at least encourage him\her with attractive rewards to accept my request.finally, thank the helper even if my request not accept.

I believe that polite greetings should be used, the reasons should be briefly justified and concise. Besides, It´s good to leave clear up to the individual that you´re asking for help why it is important his / her support for the project, product design, or service in development.

When asking for help the reason for asking for help is necessary, so the person you asked shouldn't feel as if you escape from your responsibilities, also you have to ask politely and to consider the time of the person you ask.

i think if you want to write an email asking for help, in email you should include your problems, why do you write this email?, What do you need their help with?, let them know what do they need to do?, give time and date and Let them know how important they are.
