The subject line of an email is the most important part because it is the first thing that someone sees and it often makes or breaks the open rate.
Your open rate is simply how many people opened your email when you sent it! Generally, open rates for emails are lower but the overall conversion rate is higher for email since these leads are often "warm" leads.
The headline of your email is going to be the first thing that your audience sees and will affect how many people ultimately end up opening the email.
There are a few different types of email headlines you can utilize including:
Curiosity- this piques the interest of the person opening it
Self Interest- this communicates a direct benefit for the person opening it
Offer/Sales Oriented- this is a free or paid offer for your audience
Humanity- this is showing your email list you are indeed a human, and not a robot
News- this helps keep your audience up to date with things in your niche and it helps build authority
Social Proof- this helps build trust and authority with your audience
