72% Open Rate: Our 163 Best-Performing Email Subject Lines

Here’s the formula for producing sales with email:

List size * open rate * click through rate * conversion rate * average order value

One of the easiest ways to dramatically increase the sales you make through email is by increasing your open rate.

Most people settle for a measly 10-20% open rate. In this post, you’ll discover proven email subject lines that have produced open rates as high as 72% (that’s 3-7X what most people get).

Open Rate Factor #1: The List
