Without training and experience, finding the right subject line is next to impossible. Even with the best content, If your subject line doesn’t resonate well with your target audience, all your hard work is going into the spam box. Cutting corners for your online marketing can prove disastrous.
When creating a subject line for an email campaign here are a few items to consider:
1) Demographics: Who is your target market? Generalize subject lines appealing to everyone will result in large numbers of unsubscribes and low open rates.
2) Cleverness: Is your subject line too serious? Does it immediately compel one to read your email? Humor can be very useful to capture attention in the current short attention span era.
3) Pose a question: Asking a question that helps solve problems your prospects/customers may be experiencing.
4) Limit the use of discounts: Everyone wants a deal, but used too frequently, this can alienate your subscribers. Be a thought leader and have the majority of your emails focus on content/articles they might like to read.
