I love using email marketing.
It helps me drive new leads
and promote new content and keeps my audience engaged
with whatever I have that they might need.
Plus, it's still an intimate way to build a relationship
with my audience.
But you want to know where I see tons
of marketers stumble when it comes
to their email marketing strategy.
It happens all the time.
It's a super simple mistake that just doesn't
take that long at all to correct.
Can you guess what it is?
Let me know in the comments below.
So many marketers write subject lines that aren't enticing
to their audience.
Your subject line matters a ton.
In fact, 69% of email recipients report
that emails as spam after reading the subject line.
In other words, the subject line not only determines
if they're going to open up your email or not
but also if they're going to click that spam button.
And on the flip side, 33% of email recipients say
that they open emails because of catchy subject lines.
Now, here's the great part about this.
Writing a good subject line shouldn't take long.
In fact, the shorter the better.
It doesn't take long at all.
And once you get in the swing of things
and understand what it takes to write quality subject line,
it's super simple.
Here are a few quick tips
on how to write better subject line.
One, make them shorter.
82% of markers send emails
with subject lines under 60 characters.
The shorter the better, and I found that when it's short
but it evokes curiosity, even better,
like the five benefits of green tea,
number four will shock you.
That's an example of a subject line that evokes curiosity
probably a little bit too long, but you get the point here.
Tip number two, conduct an A/B test.
93% of US companies do A/B testing for their email marketing.
Here's what we found with email marketing
when you do A/B test with subject lines.
Most people just create a A, and a B, send it off.
They're like, oh, cool.
A opened up more than B or B opened up more than A
and then that's it.
And then they go on to then creating more emails
but they're not using that data from the original A/B test.
And sure, some email platforms look at which variation
does better, and they'll listen to a subset of your list
and then to the rest of the list, they'll send
the better version.
But why not use that data on what subject lines
your audience prefer to craft better subject lines
for future emails?
In essence, don't just run a A/B test.
Use the data to improve your email subject lines
in the future.
Tip three, entice your audience.
Have something amazing that you're offering your audience.
Maybe it's a deal on a new product or a sneak peek
at an event you're hosting.
Make sure you convey that sense of excitement and
urgency in your subject line.
Don't save all the good stuff for the body of your email.
Remember, eight out of 10 people read headlines
or even subject lines.
Two out of 10 people will read the rest of your content.
Tip four, avoid emojis.
According to a study by Search Engine Journal,
emails with emojis
in the subject line actually led to more unsubscribes.
It's a little bit spammy, especially
if you're a business and you want to be professional.
So make sure that you avoid emojis.
Now, if you use these tips in your email subject line,
you should get more opens
and you'll get much better results.
It doesn't take that long at all.
You can even do simple things
like putting the person's name in the subject line.
We've seen that increase open rates massively.
