10 Catchy Email Subject Lines Guaranteed to Increase Open Rates

Let’s face it, when creating email marketing campaigns the subject line is going to be the determining factor in whether your email gets opened or sent to the trash bin.  As a matter of fact, according to a survey taken by ConvinceandConvert.com statistics show that email recipients open email based on subject line alone. I actually do not find this to be surprising at all because I am in fact one of these types of individuals.

Furthermore with the amount of emails that I receive on a daily basis, I usually do a quick scan of the email subject line and will immediately delete anything that I see coming across as “Spam”.
