Here are 3 tips on increasing your consumer base:

Research from 2012 shows:

  • Using the "$" or "sale" in the subject line produced above average opens, while other words like "discount, and "free" received below average opens.
Tip #1:  Do your research and insert words that are more likely to get customers to open

  •  Over 60% of people stated that simply "not being interested" was the #1 reason for not opening emails, followed by "receiving too many." 
 Tip # 2:  Be creative in keeping your customers interested in your company, and don't slam them with multiple emails.

  • 78% Of U.S. email users will also access their emails via mobile by 2017.  
 Tip #3:  Keep it short and sweet, but include a link to your site (where you have an extended version of your information).  Who wants to read pages and pages of information on their phone?
