1. Writing Perfect and Outstanding Email Subject Lines
I consider this one of the most important tips that every email marketer should have at their fingertips. Maybe you could be asking yourself, why should I have a perfect email subject line? It is simple; it is the first thing your customer and prospects see.
If the subject line is boring, be sure very few people will click to read it. And if they open it, it will be to mark it as spam. But, on the other hand, if the subject line appeals to the reader, they will open the email to see its content. That should tell you that successful email marketing campaigns rely on email subject lines.
So, how do you write perfect email subject lines: Follow the ABC Rule as Hassan from H-Educate calls it. In this rule, A stands for attention, B for benefit, and C for curiosity. Let’s explore more.
This is where you come up with a subject line that grabs the reader’s attention.
In this aspect, you show how the email will benefit the customer. Let them know that they will get something in return if they open the email. Show them the benefit.
This one creates a kind of suspense and quest of knowing exactly what is the email body all about. In their curiosity, they end up opening the email.

If your subject line lacks the above features, your email marketing campaigns will continue producing nothing, and that’s not what we want for your business. So at this point, to help you understand this A-B-C Rule properly, let’s give you subject lines for email marketing templates:
