New A/B Test for Your Vote: Email Newsletter Subject Line – Single vs Multiple Topics Mentioned?

In this week’s test you get to vote on email newsletter subject lines. Both the subject lines were for the exact same email newsletter… but one resulted in 21% more opens and 45% more unique clicks than the other.  Click to see if you can guess which version won.

If you publish an email newsletter that contains multiple articles, or other content items, this test completely applies to you.  The whole single-topic vs multiple-topic newsletter subject line issue is one that I personally have wrestled with for years, so it makes me very happy to see another marketer’s test results.

Take a look at the test, vote for the one you think won, and then please do post a comment about your own experiences and insights into this one: http://whichtestwon.com/archives/4579

New A/B Test for Your Vote: Email Subject Line – Tiny Tweak

Can you guess which email subject line led to the highest overall click rate? The only difference was in punctuation – one subject line had a colon and the other a dash.

Can such a tiny change really make a difference in the amount of clicks the email message itself gets? Oh yeah. We’ve got the data for you, including a surprise about open rates…

Looking forward to your comments, and any testing war stories you’d like to share with the rest of us :-)
