Try using five or less words

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.

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.

"You", "your," "yours," and "yourself" make the reader feel more emotionally connected to your business and the message.

Use language that is unique to you and complements your personality.

Studies show that personalised subject lines can increase open rates by 50%.

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.

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.

  • Consider using a question to add interest or promise to show how readers can do something. For example, "Jane, here's how to boost your home's value."
