3 ways to grow your newsletter’s readership
Newsletters can be a great way to stay in front of university constituents and keep them up-to-date. But how can you ensure your newsletters are read? Here are three key takeaways on subject lines from CB Insights, a capital marketing company that gains about 1,300 new subscribers to its newsletter each week:
- Use A/B/C subject line testing. Create three different subject lines and see which receives the highest open rate within a given time period of time. Use the most successful subject line for the newsletter.
- Keep subject lines short. Remember that less is more when it comes to subject lines.
- Surprise your readers. Contrary data and opinions on widely held beliefs perform well.
