Black Friday and Cyber Monday represent the biggest online sales period of the year.
To maximize your orders during the sales period, you’ll need to take advantage of email marketing. Not only is it the most profitable digital marketing channel, but it’s also one of the best ways to keep in touch with your customers.
And one of the most important things to consider with email marketing is getting your subject line right.
Because when a third of your email list receives an email, they will decide whether to open the email entirely based on its subject line. And when it comes to your email marketing, you’ll want to make sure you’re achieving great open rates.
The problem is that it sometimes it can be difficult to come up with subject lines that stand out in subscribers’ inboxes.
That’s why we’ve come up with this list of over 100 Black Friday subject lines.
You can either use any of these yourself, or just use them as inspiration for coming up with your own subject lines.

Now That You Have Plenty of Subject Line Ideas…
By now you should have plenty of Black Friday subject line ideas to choose from or get inspired by.
You might even find that now the problem isn’t coming up with ideas for subject lines, but rather choosing between multiple ones you want to use.
Thankfully, SmartrMail has A/B testing tools so you can try out different subject lines and see which delivers the best open rates. This is available to all users and we have a comprehensive guide on A/B testing too.
We also have a guide on writing subject lines that includes more general best practice tips to writing subject lines that compel subscribers to open the email such as including a call to action.
The only thing that’s left is to actually create your email design and get it sent to your list!
