Though you already know that you need to have subscribers to have a successful marketing campaign using email, if they aren’t opening them, it isn’t going to work. The best way to ensure that your emails get read is with your subject lines. They are almost as important as the body of the email!
Here are some more tips for writing subject lines that make your subscribers open your emails.
Make your subject line a call to action.
Many email marketers recommend using a call to action in their emails, even if it is to tell their subscribers to hurry in before they miss out on some amazing deals. People don’t want to think. They prefer to be told what to do so a call to action in the subject can be the perfect way to catch people’s attention.
Use words that make people think that they are going to miss out on something.
People don’t want to be left behind so if you try to scare them, they will probably open your email. Not interested in doing something like this? Just remember, the truth is that people will do almost anything to avoid missing out on something.
If you are having a sale, you can always send a last-minute email telling your subscribers that they need to hurry so that they don’t miss out.
Let them know that you are offering them something in value in your email.
Each email that you write to your subscribers should offer them something of value. You need to let them know in the subject exactly what you are offering them. They are more likely to open the emails that have information that is important to them.
If you are serious about getting your emails opened, you should try to write several subject lines to figure out the best one to use. This gives you a choice, or you can even try them out to learn what subjects your subscribers are more likely to open.
You also need to make sure that you offer value with every email that you write and let your subscribers know exactly what that is. Calls to action in the subject line can also make people want to open them.
