"Attempting to craft an effective subject line is addicting," a marketing director said in the Benchmark Report survey.

You're busy this time of year, so let's be quick about it. How can you improve your chances of crafting an effective subject line?


With only weeks left in the holiday marketing season, subject lines are one of the very few elements of your campaigns that:

    • You can change to impact results
    • Can provide valuable customer data

Your shopping cart is locked in place, and if you don't have mobile-optimized campaigns ready to go by now, it won't happen in the next few weeks. But, you can still change subject lines on the fly to increase your email opens, and ultimately, increase sales.

You can change them based on the 2013 holiday shopper — not what you remember worked well in 2012.

You still have time to gain valuable customer intelligence of your customers with A/B testing

It is a tactic employed by the vast majority of marketers, but don't give up on it over the next few weeks just because you're slammed this time of year.

A/B testing can still teach you:

    • Which product features resonate most with customers in the 2013 holiday shopping season
    • How much your product and brand names grab customer attention
    • If customers are interested in clever campaigns this late in the game or just want a straightforward message with clear value

As an email marketing manager said in the Benchmark Report, "Still, to this day, the subject line remains the most important part of our email marketing efforts. If they don't open, then we can't market to them, and our revenue is directly tied to open rate success!"

It's a crowded inbox this time of year. A/B testing subject lines can still help you stick out in that crowd.
