Subject Lines and Sender

The subject line and the sender's information play a key role at this stage. If you have a subject line which is over promising like "I lost 100 pounds in 7 days" or the over claim like "increase in 600 percent sales" then the recipient would avoid opening that mail. Therefore you must try to be real, convincing and also little bit intriguing in your subject line as it creates a good impact on the recipient and lead him to open the mail. Be sure that the "from field" is also full of information that is the name and address of the sender. The name of your company is a good away to be put in this field as it helps to ensure recognition and trust. The personal names should be used only when they are recognizable by the recipients. The "noreply" or other system addresses should not be used as these are less likely to be open.

A valuable content could contain a special offer that appeals to buyers, useful educational content, entertainment content that is requested by the prospects. Emails should also be send to current list. Avoid sending emails to the people who are not relevant and also outdated for your offering.
