What if you could consistently grab the attention of potential leads, and drive result-oriented engagement with data-driven subject lines? This is what we’ll discover today.
Subject line research is the most important part of a successful email marketing campaign. It can determine your email marketing success or failure. Your recipients choose to open your emails based on how relevant they are. The subject line may be the primary factor that will encourage them to read or ignore your emails.
You can also use AI to write email subject lines. Copy.ai has developed a way to learn from human behavior and give your campaigns a boost. It may sound like an over-promise, but it’s not.
But first let’s review what makes a great one.
How to write a good subject line?
Clear and precise
The shorter the better. Just work with few words that clearly describe what the subscriber will find in the content of the email. It’s one thing to write intriguing subject line, but it should still match what comes after.
Match your list or segment expectations
Some people on your list are more attentive to some topics, make sure to have this information at hand in your data. Then you can write a dynamic subject line based on it.
A/B test your subject lines
The only way to get better over time in writing subject lines is to test them over and over again. This will increase your conversions as more and more people will open your emails. Each good platform should have an easy way to do it for every email you send out. If that’s not the case, check out Drip which does it really well.
Emoji in subject lines
The trend of having an emoji in subject line is slowing going away. Once in a while you can do it, but don’t over use it.
