Example Email Subject Lines That Convert

Today, I want to share some example email subject lines that convert like crazy for me. Email marketing is a VERY powerful way to promote your offer, business opportunity, product, or service. It’s free, effective, and easy to do.

To clarify, I am not talking about spamming people either. I’m talking about emailing people who have given you PERMISSION to do so, by subscribing to your email list.

The major challenge with email marketing is getting people to actually open your email. You must realize that people are bombarded with hundreds of emails daily. Therefore, you only have a few seconds to capture someone’s attention before they decide to open it or delete it.

The second major challenge with email marketing is getting your email delivered to someone’s inbox. Many emails hit the bulk mail or spam folder or notifications folder, rather than the inbox. Sometimes, keywords in the subject line and body of the email trigger the spam filters, and cause this to happen.

As a result, many of your subscribers never even see your email. That’s why you must choose your words carefully.

If you want people to open your emails, you need a captivating subject line. It is the MOST important part of your email. You need something in your subject line that really stands out in the crowd, compared to the other 200 or 300 emails in their inbox.

What I’ve done over the past few months is written down a list of example email subject lines that caught my attention. These emails ended up in my inbox and/or spam folder, but really stood out to me. Because of the subject line, I opened the email and read the message, just to see what it was all about.

In addition, some of these example email subject lines are from emails I send to my subscriber list.

Final Thoughts

Your key to success when writing emails is to think about your prospect. Get inside their head and figure out what their hot button is. Once you know that, come up with a great subject line that speaks to that.

I’m not personally a big fan of using hype, but you can’t be boring either. Get creative, think outside the box, and make a bold statement that gets your prospects off guard and entices them to open your email.

  1. Hey Chuck, I am not being critical but I would never open an email with 90% of those titles listed. My best title as far as getting them opened is “By the way, please give me your personal opinion”. It gets about 20% opened. Have a great 2020 Captain! Keep up the good work. You are a great leader! Thanks for all your help and suggestions. Nick

    1. Thanks for the comment, Nick. Yes, many people wouldn’t open an email with a subject line like that, but many people will. No matter what title you pick, you won’t please everyone. Testing is important. I’m often surprised when I discover that “hypey” subject lines get opened much more than non-hypey ones. I am personally not a fan of hype myself, but the numbers don’t lie.

        I feel the same way. It’s probably because us makerters, are so used to see these hooks that we don’t take them as seriously and we won’t think people will click but they do. Some of them…at least
