This is the second of a five-part series focused on Business Email Etiquette.
Hey you, Read my email!
One of the biggest challenges with email communication is getting your audience to actually open it!
The video below talks about ways you can write effective subject lines that will motivate your target audience to open your email and take action.
Use effective Subject Lines to...
1) Call to Action
"Action Required: ID approval needed"
"For Bob Review: Report for Monday's Meeting"
2) Give them a due date to help them prioritize your email
"Action Required by 7/31: Submit your expenses"
"For Your Action (Takes two minutes): Two-question survey "
3) Drive productive discussion and collaboration
"Meeting Materials: For reference during tomorrow's Ops Review"
"Notes & Next Steps: Monthly Ops Review"
4) Avoid ineffective subject lines that get lost in an inbox
"Hi, how are you?"
