Making Your Subject Lines Fun for Better Open Rates

About the Episode

About the Episode: Email is a sea of sameness. Just ask any sophomore or junior in high school you know: they are getting bombarded with thousands of emails and they all sound the same. Katie Mills-Erickson wanted to break through the noise to share the University of Iowa story. But how? In email, it starts with the subject line. Her tactic was to change the tone so they would sound and feel more quirky, more human, more fun. The results were astonishing. Email open rates increased by 20%, with some emails hitting open rates in the 80-90% range. 

In the episode, we talk about Katie’s cool “My job is Email” shirt. You can get it here: https://www.raygunsite.com/products/my-job-is-email
