Support NestSend Email subject & preview text line best practices
The subject line is the first thing a subscriber sees in an email’s inbox and determines whether or not the subscriber opens the email. By focusing on the subject line of your emails, you can get more customers to open your emails, keep them out of spam folders, and get your messages seen. This article will show you how to write effective subject lines and how to check subject line performance.
In fact, there’s no character limit for Subject Line length, but inboxes will show only a shorted part as a preview. You can check the inbox preview right next to your campaign’s subject line field.
An email subject line is the part of an email that appears in the user’s inbox upon opening. It tells the purpose of sending the email and interests to your audience, thus determining if they open and read what you have written or not.
It also plays a critical role in consumer psychology and sending intentions — something marketers should be aware of!
People either read or delete emails based on the subject line.
Here is a typical example of an email subject line:
Below is a list of email clients and their default character count displayed:
Preview text, sometimes known as the preheader, is the snippet of text that appears after the email subject line in most email programs. It is a feature that email marketers can use to improve their delivery rates, by improving how their message looks in the inbox.
When writing your preview text, try to reduce repetition in your language. Since an email’s preview text is typically short, optimizing the use of your characters is important. You have few words to entice your readers, which means you might want to pick your content carefully. If you avoid repetition, you can add more unique content that’s appealing.
Before deciding on your preview, test your text to determine the best message for your emails. For example, you can write a few different versions of your preview text for one email and send a different version to each of your subscribers, using analytics to gauge which preview received a higher click rate. The results of this test might show you whether a certain preview length produces better results.
Try to use verbs or action words when creating your preview text. Action words usually elicit reactions from readers. An action word can be more interesting than passive phrases. For example, saying “Hurry to our store to make a purchase!” may produce more of a reaction than simply saying “Please visit our store.“
