Be casual, don't go too formal, let music speak for itself. Before submitting your demo, check label's latest releases and compare your own stuff with them and try to decide if your music would fit in their catalog and if it's in a same level composition and production wise. Use dropbox/soundcloud for your full demo so they could preview stuff from it without need of downloading.
Like I said this post was not so much the labels that I have in mind because I have been researching for a while. It was more the best method, like do I hold them in a private link on SC etc, so they will be the first to hear
