15 of the Best Email Subject Lines Waiting to be Opened

When it comes to email marketing, one of the hardest parts is actually getting prospects to open your email. Even if you have the most valuable, revolutionary information in that email, no one will see it if they don’t open it.

We have curated a list of the 15 best email subject lines just waiting to be opened!

1. The Intriguer

Look what you did…. – Hustle

This type of email subject peaks the curiosity of the reader because they want to remember exactly what they did. The way Hustle used this email subject was to get the reader to open an email from the new list they subscribed to, so it’s fresh in their mind, and they obviously want to hear from their company!

2. The Urgent Statement

$10 OFF—Last Day! – Groupon

Having a sense of urgency, such as “last day!” in this email, always entices a reader to open. If they are a fan of the product or service already and have subscribed to receive alerts, chances are they have been waiting for this email. Also, instead of a percentage off, there’s a straight forward dollar amount, which would get any shopper excited because they won’t have to calculate anything to figure out how much they would be saving!

Building a Successful CRM with Salesforce Consultants

Imagine self-implementing a system as vast as Salesforce to find out 6-8 months later that you cannot prove its ROI. Meanwhile, you’ve already spent quite the investment already so that your budget is locked up for the rest of the year. For the past 10 years we’ve seen this all the time, and it is all caused by self-implementation.

Whether you have decided to pick Salesforce as your customer success platform or are strongly considering to do so, what usually follows is, “Can I self-implement? Why do I need to hire a consultant?” Yes, you can do implement Salesforce yourself, but it’s not recommended unless you have a Salesforce admin with over five years of hands-on experience. Although, we highly suggest against self-implementations as it usually does not lead to the proper transfer of business processes onto the platform. This comes from the Salesforce client not having the knowledge of what Salesforce can do as a platform when implemented company-wide.

How to Drive Cash Flow thru Accounts Receivables

Does this sound familiar? Your company never seems to have enough cash on hand, but the problem may not be a lack of sales, it’s delayed collections. Did you know 39% of invoices are paid late in the United States and 6% of accounts receivables are paid in under 30 days (AnyTimeCollect). When accounts receivables sits in your customer’s’ bank accounts instead of yours, it negatively affects your finances in a few ways. The most obvious effect is a loss of revenue.

How you keep track of that is through Days Sales Outstanding (DSO).
