Action words that you should use in the e-mail subject lines in holiday periods and special days
Being extra creative will do very well in these periods. Coming up with entertaining subject lines is a great idea but one shouldn’t ignore the statistics. Due to the statistics, specific words are much more effective than the others in regards to sales and return rates. Some of such words are:
- Thank you
- Special for you
- Be the first
- At once
Each of these words is pretty successful when it comes to linking and convincing. Also they disclose emotions of emergency and personality in the customers.
Also, using emoticons in the subject line is a factor that affects the opening of the e-mails that you send before the trade cycles. The entertaining structure of the emoticons helps your e-mails to stand out amongst all others. When you are sending an e-mail about a winter product add your subject line a sweet snowman and watch the positive return yourself.
Draw your customers’ attention in holiday periods and special days by reminding words.
Statistically, using the names of the holiday periods and special days along with the words that encourage your customers to shop will give them the impression that your discounts are special for only these days or these periods. Some words draw attention, as you can see in the e-mail subject lines above;
- Special day
- Black Friday
- Cyber Monday
- Last Days
When you combine the words that invite the customers to action and draw their attention, the outcome of the e-mails you send will be more than enough to make you happy!
