15 Simple Subject Line Checks – To Make yours POP!

15 Simple Subject Line Checks –

To Make yours POP!

I mentioned before, that I was a D Student, I hated English in School. Then when I was older I found out that I am Dyslexic. Today, I love writing and I write every day!

What changed you might ask?

About 10 years ago, I was dared to do Standup Comedy. I hated standing up in front of People, “I am dyslexic, I CAN’T do that!”
This CAN’T was the catalyst and drove me to do what was once my biggest fear. Standup Comedy.

It was during this process and writing Jokes for myself, that I realised that Joke writing like all writing is a formula, not something mystical that these words magicians were able to create. Just like subject lines.
My thoughts are that you shouldn’t get too caught up on the perfect title. I suggest you review the formula create about 5 different options. Pick the best and then test 1 or 2 if you can.

  1. Keep your audience and your goal in mind. Keep Your Audience and Your Goal in Mind! Click To Tweet

  3. Make sure they are not too long. No longer than 50 Letters so that they easily fit on a mobile screen.
  4. Use concise language.
  5. Create a sense of urgency.
  6. Ask an interesting question.
  7. Use a sender name of someone who is known to your audience.
  8. Also make it relevant to the article, you don’t want people clicking your article and then moving away straight away.
  9. Don’t use too many all capitals.
  10. Do break the subject line up with brackets () and dashes “-” .
  11. Test.
