Email Subject Lines that Get More Opens

ID-10065780How many emails have arrived in your inbox today?

How many have you opened?

There are many reasons why we open some emails and not others. It might have to do with our busy schedules or maybe the fact that we aren’t always interested in the content they contain.

But one thing that has a great effect on whether an email gets opened or not is its subject line. While we can’t control our recipients’ situations, we can control subject lines that accompany our marketing messages.

If you would like to start experiencing higher open rates, here are a few simple tips you can follow to write better, more engaging subject lines!

These tips will juice up your email marketing efforts.

1. Make a Personal Connection 

Often, the reason people don’t open email marketing messages is because they don’t feel personally invested in the content. Marketing pros know that a way to create a connection is by sending messages with subject lines that build trust and relationships.

Consider beginning the subject line with the recipient’s name. According to a post from AWeber, in a test between two similar email subject lines, the personalized version with the recipient’s name increased opens by 5.13% and increased CTR by 17.36%.

Even though adding a name can bump up your number of characters, it can significantly boot response rates so it might be worth a try.

2. Keep it Short

Email subject lines should be long enough to express a point, but short enough that they don’t get cut off. Shorter email subjects typically have better results, but don’t go too short or else recipients might not know feel compelled to click.

3. Model popular advertising

Fortune 500 companies spend millions of dollars to put out the best possible marketing messages. Open up top business magazines and model how the big companies are structuring their messages.

Another quick tip is pulling ideas from the yahoo.com home page, they are constantly putting up new stories with very catch headlines. You can copy their catchy headlines and tailor them to your content. BOOM, instant great subject lines!

4. Know Your Audience

The best subject lines are those that resonate with your audience. Learn who your audience is and create messages that appeal to them. The same messages that appeal to you might not appeal to your audience, but this is okay. You aren’t marketing to yourself.
