Core Netiquette For Subject Fields


Top Netiquette Subject-Line Entries

It is tantamount that a subject line is consistent with the content of the email itself; if it isn’t, the likelihood of the recipient opening a future message will be greatly reduced.
The following are some tips on things to include in the body of the email if you want it to have an impact on the recipient and generate a response:

1.       Mention the person who referred you, including the full name and tile of the person.
2.       Add the name of a successful sendee’s company item (e.g., a new product).
3.       Include a very specific identifier with job description (i.e., job title, responsibilities, ID number, and so on).
4.       If making a cold inquiry, be direct.
5.       Use any prestigious titles you possess, such as CEO, CTO, and so forth.
6.       Ask for the person’s professional advice, e.g., “your opinion is requested” if this is your primary reason for the message.
7.       Tantalize the reader by mentioning special content, e.g., new information.
8.       Use power words.
9.       Avoid overhyping yourself. A second opinion may be helpful (e.g., having someone else read it).
10.  Promote yourself by mentioning favorable customer reviews you’ve received.
