MailChimp and Honest Subject Lines
Hi WA friends, man, it's been a while since my last blog post here. I wanted to share a quick success story... well, small success I guess.
I finally got started with integrating MailChimp to bring back former clients/previous inquiries. And I sent out the first two emails with Mail Chimp campaigns.... to over 100 subscribers for the first two emails, and both times only about 10% opened the email.
The third time I sent an email, it was just simply an honest subject header. Everyone in my email list was someone who needed a follow up, as I had not heard back from them again, and I didn't know if they were still interested or not.
So that's what my subject was... "Still Wondering About You..."
And after I sent it out.... it hit over 30% opens rather quickly. Was a good feeling if you know what I mean.
Anyway, just wanted to share that, to hopefully save you a lot of time and heartache in trying to do what everybody else does;
"February Special Price... Act Now!" or something kinda lame like that. :(
PS: I'm wondering if anyone is really reading this post. I wonder if this is something that everyone else already knows, because WA definitely teaches good, original content..., not like what I tried to no avail.
Do the training folks!
