Today’s question is:

“How can you get people to open and read your emails?”

The truth is, it’s not easy. Just think about life on a day to day basis. People like you and me, we’re bombarded with promotions, blog posts, Facebook messages, all kinds of stuff.

At GrowthLab, we send millions of emails a month, and we’ve studied what works very carefully. We tried a number of different formats:

  • Newsletters
  • Roundups
  • Short emails
  • Emails with more than 1,000 words

The ones that work the best had seven key elements. I want to give those to you right now.

  1. An intriguing subject line
  2. A personal greeting in the name field
  3. An opening line that hooks people
  4. Some interesting story or lesson
  5. A call to action — what do you want the reader to do?
  6. Personal sign off
  7. A P.S. — an overlooked but critical part
