  • Professional email communications ‘ professional’ means sending emails that represent the characteristics of your business visually (your brand), while delivering information that educates your audience and/or differentiates your business from the competition. Interested audience An ‘interested’ audience is comprised of people who are familiar with you and your business and have asked to receive your communications. They find valuable If your communications aren’t valuable and appreciated by your audience, no one will want to receive them.
  • Here are some examples of poor subject line tactics. These tactics are often present in spam emails, so take a look at the subject lines in your spam or junk folder once in a while to see what the spammers are up to. Any tactics used by spammers should be omitted from your emails.

Confounding Disappointment—You missed the mark to such a degree it is simply unbelievable! Conforming Delight—I expected you to be remarkable and you were.
