Writing emails that get read and acted upon is an art. Here are 5 tips to help you craft emails that compel your subscribers to open and engage:
1. Write Attention-Grabbing Subject Lines: Keep your subject lines short (under 50 characters) and include your subscriber’s name, an incentive, or a sense of urgency. Test different subject lines to see what performs best.
2. Personalize the Content: Address your subscribers by name and include details that are specific to them. Personalized content makes readers feel valued and more inclined to open your emails.
3. Keep it Short and Scannable: Limit your email to around 200-300 words and use clear subheadings, bulleted lists and plenty of whitespace to make it easy to scan. Readers are more likely to open shorter, skimmable emails.
4. Include a Clear Call to Action: Tell readers explicitly what you want them to do after reading your email. Common CTAs include clicking a link, downloading an offer, making a purchase, or registering for an event.
5. Test and Refine: Analyze your open and click-through rates, as well as unsubscribe numbers. Make adjustments to your subject lines, content and structure based on what performs best. Continually test and optimize your emails for maximum impact. By following these tips, you can dramatically increase open rates for your emails and get more subscribers taking the actions you desire.
