Your Email Subject Line
The subject line of your email largely dictates whether the email
will be canned as spam, and if not, how likely it is to be opened
by the recipient.
Many people suffer spam mail rates of over 80 percent. They quickly
glance down the From and Subject lines in their email header window
and only open those which they are anticipated, or which look interesting.
You must therefore do everything you can to prevent your email
being designated as spam, and entice the opening of your email.
Phrases to Avoid
All email marketers should avoid the following phrases
- Buy / Buying
- Dear Friend
- Fewer than 5 works
- Do CAP, punctuations
- Toll free numbers
- Sexual or pharmaceutical
- As seen on TV
- Coupon Span
- Please read
- Don't delete
Remember - the CanSpam filters add the total value of the spam
words used, so whilst you may get away with the odd coupon or buy
words, the total spam value must not be exceeded.
