Email Subject Line A/B Testing

Of course, when writing a thank you note to clients, the first thing to keep in mind is your audience, the established communication pattern, and the occasion. The subject line Thanks, folks! You rock! may be applicable for a teenage apparel retailer but look strange when sent by a five-star hotel or a health insurance.

Another method to detect effective subject lines, aside from common sense and creativity, is split testing. Your own opinion may be subjective but the stats doesn’t lie. So in case your email open rate has been recently falling down, or you feel you need an outside perspective, consider running an A/B test.

The process doesn’t require much effort or technical knowledge. For example, in the eSputnik system, you can set unlimited numbers of variants (although we wouldn’t recommend more than two) and check which one your subscriber would like the most.

Subject line A/B testing

The test result with all the necessary metrics is given in the email campaign report, and the winning variant is labeled with a star.

A/B testing
