What Your Email Inbox Reveals about Email Subject Lines that Sell

If you scan your overloaded inbox each day do you ever take notice of the emails that you open and the ones you discard?

Do you ever scan the email subject lines and take a mental note of the types of subject headers being used by the internet marketing pros and how the “feel” of them seems to change over time.

When you do that and you do it frequently enough you’ll start to see something unique shine through amongst all the marketing guff.

You’ll start to see certain email subject lines stand out from others. You’ll start to notice that often the most “clickworthy” subject lines are the ones that look like personal messages.

It’s not co-incidence then that this is often the style of subject line that the world’s top internet marketers use in their emails.

I get well over a thousand marketing-related emails (excluding the ones filtered out by my spam filter) each week and after scouring through them here is my pick of the “most clickworthy” email subject lines of the week.They’re all from top internet marketers.

So – here are my top 8 email subject lines of the week:

  • Are you calling in today? (Steve Harrison)
  • I cannot believe you, Kristina (Jeremy Stevens)
  • This is the key to “having it all” (Alex Mandossian)
  • did you see this? (Tellman Knudsen)
  • Will it work for me? (Ari Galper)
  • People keep asking this, Kristina (Kevin Wilke)
  • Kris, in your progress ______ comes first (Mark Joyner)
  • What is your “Money Attractor” IQ? (Joe Vitale)

Notice how most of  these subject lines either ask questions or have a curiosity element to them. See how you can apply these techniques to your next email campaign and watch your open rates increase.
