If you can, tell a story.

People are oversaturated with messaging and advertising all day long. If you can get your point across using a story, people are more likely to engage with your brand. In a technical and digitally-focused world, human connection is craved by your users. It’s also incredibly powerful. Creating an emotional connection can keep your customer base invested long after the initial touchpoint.

Use a call-to-action!

For example, buttons that say “Sign-up Now”, “Join Today,” or “Find out How” will easily direct users to where you want them to go. The call-to-action should stand out and give your audience a simple and short task to complete. Look at the image below. “Sign Up Free” jumps right off the page, sparking interest immediately.

The subject line is important. Very important.

Think of how many emails you have deleted before you even opened them. Maybe it was the company they were sent from. Maybe it was because the subject didn’t entice you? When creating your subject line, you have only a few words to grab your reader’s attention. A few questions to consider: What is the objective of the email? What do you want the audience to do? Why should they open your email? These answers should inform everything you write thereafter.
