Are you doing this?

Post by carljohndavies » Mon Mar 05, 2018 7:01 pm

Hey [firstname]!

How are you [firstname]?

Ever noticed how lame these types of emails are?

Every so called "expert" recommends that personalizing your
emails with the first name code will bring you more results.

"Always address your subscriber by their first name in the subject
line, and throughout the email.”

Lol.

Nope.

Truth is (based on my data), if you personalize like this, there will be...

LESS opens.

LESS clicks.

And LESS will respond.

How's that for an "a-ha" moment?

Because it's true.

Perhaps you're listening to the wrong "expert".

Thanks, expert, for helping me make less money.

So what do you do instead?

Well, I recommend you find someone who is willing to REALLY help you,
you connect with, and you like how he/she does things...

...or until you find out there lying.

Ever way - if you TRULY want to succeed...

...find a mentor that rocks!

My thoughts for the day!

Stay awesome :)

This 'expert' says use first names anytime you can.
