So you’ve put your heart and soul into creating an amazing Valentine’s Day email that you know your subscribers are going to love. The last thing you’ll want after you hit the send button is for the email campaign to hardly be opened.
Not only will your subscribers miss out on the hard work you’ve put into your email design, but you’ll also miss out on a slice of Valentine’s Day sales.
And when there was over $20 billion in sales last year in the United States alone, you’ll want your Valentine’s Day email campaign to achieve the greatest open rate possible.
So how do you do this?
Well nearly half of your subscribers open emails based on subject lines, making it one of the most important factors in determining your open rate.
Thankfully writing better subject lines is something that’s incredibly easy to do.
But whether you’ve left your Valentine’s Day campaign to the last minute, or just don’t have the time to brush up on improving your subject lines, we’ve created a list of Valentine’s Day subject lines that you can use.
Whether you simply copy and paste one of these, or you use them as inspiration for your own, they’re sure to improve your number of opens.
