Mobile devices are becoming a much bigger part of everybody’s daily lives. More and more people are reading emails and business communication on their mobile devices. So, as an email marketer, one needs to spend time on making sure that the emails  are read, consumed and viewed on mobile devices as well.

According to studies, 78 percent of people read emails on their mobile devices. We must make sure that the emails are viewable on all ESP’s mobile versions. Thus, it has become very important to optimize the content by using shorter content.

40 percent of the reader’s decision to open the emails is based on subject line and “send from”, i.e senders name. Besides, 69 percent of the recipients decide whether to report email as spam based on the subject line. This makes the “subject line” highly crucial aspect of email marketing.

Adding further to highlight the importance of “subject line”, according to the 80/20 rule – 8 out of 10 people will skip the email subject line, which implies that less than 2 people out of 10 will read the rest of the email and take desired action. So, while drafting out the emails, one must spend 50 percent of the time on the subject line and 50 percent on everything else (including design).
