Make it easy to read:
Make sure your emails can be read on a smartphone with good use of space, dot points, and headlines will boost readability.

Mind the Timing:
Send your emails when the reader is most likely to read.

Add Personal Touches:
Make sure your opening lines are unique and sound like they are from “a person” and not just your “brand.” You want your email to appear personally written.

Never Mislead:
Don’t trick your readers with a subject line that doesn’t match to the email content. Avoid the spam list and be upfront with your readers.
