How To Get The Readers Attention

Nov 9, 2007
Internet based businesses are in a race for domination with other vendors popping that will assist them for only a small fee.

With a steady flow of visitors and web traffic you may find yourself in a position where you don't have to pay. You can build yourself the foundation of a loyal list by allowing visitors to sign up or opt in and allow your list to grow from there.

Use an opt- in list to gain subscribers to your newsletters, your visitors know they will be receiving news and updates from you regarding your site and industry via email. Unfortunately that does not mean that your subscribers will read it.

Sometimes lists are made using other methods such as an attachment with a promotional offer or a free product. The subscribers are not really interested in receiving the emails as much as getting the promotion and often delete the email without even opening it or scanning it over.

There is a way to change this.

A lot of time and effort goes into creating a newsletter and you don't want it wasted. To get readers you need to create an interest for the reader. That interest needs to be strong enough to get the results you want. That is traffic to your website to purchase the products available there.

Creating an interest this strong requires writing on a subject of interest in a well thought out manner. You need to tempt the reader into visiting your site.

The one sure thing most people will see of an email is the subject line. Based on the subject line the subscriber will either decide to open the email or delete it. Because of this, the subject line has to be the most important part of any email sent to subscribers.

Make the subject line short with a concise point. The goal is to give the recipient a summary of the content and a reason to read. In needs to grab the reader's attention with a promise of more to come. That intrigue with the content is what will get them to open the email.

Subscribers do not automatically open every email, but a good subject line will generate enough emotion to make them curious enough to open it.

There are specific words that can help you to get the reaction you want to achieve. The recipient will typically only spend a second or two on your subject line, deciding to open it or not. You need to get their attention in that short time.

A few example of good attention grabbing words are "tips", "guide" and "how to". These are key phrases that will pique the reader's interest when paired with a subject the reader has interest in learning more about.

Another good method to create interest is by presenting a question that is easily affirmed by the reader. Questions such as "Are you tired of your job?" or "Are you getting paid less than you deserve?"

By tying questions such as this into the content of your website that your subscribers have already shown interest in by opting into your newsletter, you can't help but generate in urge for them to open it. The reader can't help but start to answer the question with their minds wondering.

Other subject lines that can grab attention announce benefits or time limits to reading the newsletter. Subjects such as "Excellent opportunity for those that act now." Or "Triple your earnings in one year." Or even "Breaking news."

Whatever subject line you decide upon, it needs to create excitement, urgency, intrigue or even lead the reader into reading further.
