It's getting harder to be noticed in people's inboxes. Yet, email is still the most effective channel to engage, convert, and retain potential customers.
That is why creating an engaging email subject line is vital to catch your readers attention to open your email.
A Yesware study found that email subject lines between one and five words had the highest open rates. A Marketo study found subject lines with about 41 characters or seven words had the most engagement.
Try not to push too much information in a message. Email subject lines like "Products celebs are wearing" or "Deals you can't miss" is to the point and will gain interest.
Numbers lend credibility to your message. Include a statistic from a survey, a time-saving figure, the discount percentage figure, or the number of steps in your how-to-guide.
"40% off today only"
"15 ways to save on energy"
Studies show that personalised subject lines can increase open rates by 50%.
Email subject lines sound personal when you keep the language informal and write like you're talking to a friend. For example, "Linda, we don't want you to miss out."
Use language that is unique to you and complements your personality.
Unconventional words make your subject lines more noticeable. For example, Activewear retailer Fabletics used this subject line: “Your butt will look great in these workout pants.”
Experian found that emojis in the subject line can increase open rates by 45%. But in B2B business or a more formal business, emojis may seem inappropriate.
Experiment by split testing two versions of the same subject line - with and without emoji.
"You", "your," "yours," and "yourself" make the reader feel more emotionally connected to your business and the message.
Write about your reader, not about your business. Emphasize how the reader will benefit from reading your email.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
