True story: When I wrote my computer tips and tricks in Danish, I often had higher than 100% opening rate.
Sometimes it went down to around 80%. Then I would send my list a mail, tell them how much time I spent on writing those tips, and threaten to stop mailing.
It worked, every time 😉
But what do you do, if you can’t threaten your list to open your mails? Here’s a short list:
- Pay your subscribers $1 for each mail they open.
- Only send mails to family and friends, who long to hear from you.
- Kick out everyone who don’t open your emails.
- Use SIBOC the magical email template.
While the first three tips will work, I’m not sure they are in your best interest. Tip #4, on the other hand, is worth gold. And money. You won’t get a 100% opening rate, though. My own latest record is 38%, and with a niche standard around 10%, I’m happy with that result.
