Write Subject Lines That Will Get Your Emails Opened

  email

cellphone_messageFirst impressions matter. Just like face-to-face interactions, email subject lines can make or break a connection. With all of the inbox content we’re sifting through on a regular basis, it’s important to make your subject lines stand out and leave a lasting impression.

Your subject line not only reflects the contents of the email, but also your brand. It’s important to make a positive impression with that subject line – in fewer than 50 words.

According to Chadwick Martin Bailey, 64 percent of people say they open an email because of the subject line. With that information, it’s pretty clear how important the subject line of an email truly is. Email marketers should be spending just as much time creating the email subject line as they are writing the email itself in order to craft a subject line that is strong and compelling. The contents of your email should be great, but your subject line should be even better.
