Creating Email Subject Lines that Actually get Opened

Most people quickly scan the subject lines in their inbox before deciding which messages are worth their time and attention.

Did you know that emails with subject lines with both a persons first and last name have a higher chance of getting read? Or using “thank you” vs “sign up” makes a giant impact on open rates?

Let’s face it, even in the age of Social Media and interactive websites, old school email is still our most powerful client communication tool. However, most email subject lines are not given much thought. Sure we like to add works like “Urgent” or “Sale!” or “Last Chance!”, but what if some of those words are actually deterring people from opening the email? Words that make an email look like metallic cans of virtual ham are simply getting deleted. (Spam anyone?)

Good news is some of the most respected names in the email biz have put together some research to help:

Symbols in Subject Lines (Campaign Monitor)

Are you crafting the best subject lines?

Meet award-winning and renowned photographer Bryan Caporicci: “I believe that photography is about people, relationships and the moments that they share together.”

We have had the honour of working with Bryan before, but this time was different. Bryan approached us to refresh his WordPress website (which we originally built for him) with a fully responsive design.

We took it a few steps further, starting at the drawing board. From the ground up we rethought the navigation, redesigned the home page, and strategized the visitor flow. Working closely with Bryan is always a treat, with his attention to detail and commitment to pushing the industry forward. We are proud to announce the launch of his new fully-mobile optimized, custom WordPress website.
