EMAIL TIPS:
  • SUBJECT: Keep Subject lines short but meaningful (4-6 words). Use the “Snippet” for more detail (see below). Be careful not to include spam words in the Subject like “Free”, “Win” or “Cash”. Also don't put your Subject in ALL CAPITALS
  • SNIPPET: Your Snippet is a short teaser sentence to get the recipient to Open your email and expands on your short Subject line. The Snippet is beneficial in achieving better results because most email programs display the first line of every email to the recipient. The text size can be small (10pt-12pt). Also use the mail merge feature in the Snippet of “first name” or even “city” if your email is targeted to a specific region (ex: Hi *|First Name|*, this should interest you since you’re located in *|City|*). Proper use of the snippet improves Open rates.
  • TIME SENSITIVE: Call out in the Subject line or Snippet if your email is time sensitive.
  • CALL TO ACTION: Have a clear “call to action” and feature this no further down than half way in your email. A call to action is something that encourages your contact to take the action you want them to, such as clicking a URL on an offer or accepting an invitation.
  • FOCUS: Keep your content focused on 1 or 2 “call to actions”. An email is not a webpage. AVOID adding social media icons, and additional links that distract the recipient from your main objective. Do you want them to check out your Facebook page or click on your main call to action?
