4. USE A Clear and Distinct Subject Line.
If person you are sending your message just reads Subject line and finds it wanting, you will probably get deleted BEFORE you get read. Try to make your Subject line a complete and interesting idea.
5. KEEP Your First Message Short.
If someone is responding to an online ad or posting in a discussion group, give them just enough to inform and excite.
Too much info sent out in your first communication might also make them delete before reading your message in its entirety.
If they are truly interested, they WILL request more information. Once they request a follow-up, you can send them a more detailed email. Therefore, do use: Short paragraphs, Lines under sixty-five characters and Email under twenty-five lines total.
6. TARGET Your Response and Keep In Focus.
Nobody likes an email that starts in one direction and then loses point mid-email.
7. CREATE A File To Your Most FAQ.
Have email responses to your most frequently asked questions, FAQ. For example, if you run an ad featuring your business Opportunity, you will need to customize those response emails to that particular situation. Then keep them handy, like in your email inbox, so you can "Cut and Paste" your responses.
You should have on file a short, first response email, a longer, more detailed follow-up as well as a third short reminder message. The reminder is used about a week or two after sending detailed response to keep your message fresh in mind of your prospect.
It does pay to follow-up.
8. ALWAYS Use A Signature File.
Your signature is very much like an electronic business card for Internet. Keep it short, about 4 or 5 lines is considered appropriate.
Again, it is always wise to send yourself an email to SEE how it will look to those to which you email. More on Signatures at: http://emailexchange.org/sig.html
9. TEST Your Messages.
Send out two or three versions of same basic message so That you can evaluate which gives you a better response rate.
Keep those on your list well informed by updating any changes, notices of specials, limited time offers, etc.
Invest some time when you first start your email campaign and it will save you countless hours down road when you need it most to answer those responses and fill those orders.
