Reveal more about me in email. Pull back the curtain a bit and let people know a little about me/my travel experiences in an effort to warm up the emails and make less corporate.
Went well- I felt more comfortable sharing snippets of my life which seem relevant. This resulted in people emailing me back to add their comments about the topic.
Room to improve: better story telling in email. Work in progress but getting better. I too hate the 1/2 story in email.
If all goes well- next area of improvement will be subject lines. What creates curiosity but not seem spammy.
Good response: Communication Problems in China – relatable so opened
Poor response: Do you worry about safety when you travel?- not sure why not liked- probably too spammy low open rate.
Sign up for DDR emails– done.
Email subject lines
None were questions. All were specific, direct and short:
adjective subject verb to results
Favorite emails-that get opened
One is a special food blog- for a specific problem which applies to me/my health – she sends recipes I can actually eat and shares other tips/tricks
One is an exceptionally good writer- who cares what she writes about it’s always good
One is a competitor- just to keep tabs on their focus what they are doing
One is a skill set- how to be a better speaker, tips and ideas
So all have a specific goal- most improve me/my health one entertains me.
