In our email marketing industry, we take a great interest in subject lines, as they can influence whether someone opens, ignores or deletes your emails.
These unprecedented times that COVID-19 has brought us has drastically changed email marketing strategies, with some businesses reducing their output, whilst many others increasing their activity significantly with more email updates offering services, products and solutions in alternative ways, as we all make our way through the pandemic together.
You may have noticed that email subject lines have become more personal, helpful and sympathetic. So, in this blog we’ve taken a selection from various companies to show the change in tone and direction, as we have navigated our way through the pandemic together.
