A: start your subject with a lowercase letter
According to a new study, when you send an email, there’s only a 34% chance you’ll get a response. That means two out of every three emails you send are just going to dangle out there forever.
Here are a few more results from the study . . .
- If you make a typo in your email subject line, your chance of getting a response drops to 29%.
- If you start your subject with a lowercase letter, your chance of getting a response drops to 28%.
- Mondays are the worst days to send emails. It’s when we’re most likely to make typos and most likely to have an ANGRY overall tone to what we write.
- Emails between 50 and 125 words are the most likely to get a response. And emails with subject lines that are three to four words are most likely to be opened.
