Hello everyone! I'm going to be making a new course for email marketing, and I plan on putting a ton of effort into it; but I can't pick between 2 titles. I'm usually pretty good at coming up with one's that have a high click through rate. Anyway, my two titles are:

5 key steps to email marketing success

Or

How to get 500 email subscribers today.

I'm not solid on the number 500 because I have to look at my numbers to get an accurate assessment, but that's just any example. Thanks for any help.

    I would highly recommend that you go through the copywriting forum since there is a plethora of information on that part of this forum. The threads there are all about finding the right titles.

    I feel like the second one makes a big promise; therefore, it'll get the attention of others. The first one is always a winner but not exactly one that will get people's attention. Making big promises can be hard as well if you aren't providing good info and can to get them those results.

    I would choose the second one! Hint, it's better to promise a number lower but achievable than something big but hard / impossible to get. I guess that your strategy can be repeated if people want for example, another batch of 500 subscribers. Hope you see what i am trying to say

      I'm second to this. It is better to have a right frame in your title.

    How about the title:

    How to get 500 email subscribers today and guarantee yourself with 5-10 sales everyday like clockwork.

    That would get everyone's attention. Including the people who are already doing well with affiliate marketing and email marketing.

    These are OK, nothing wrong with them, but if you are thinking about IM, you might need something a little more direct. like "Size Really Does Matter" or "I Like My Lists Supersized, She Said" or "More Response, More Often"

    The first is a generic headline. The second has been done so many times before. Maybe you will do better by personalizing it. Such as, 'How I doubled my email opt in rate in less than 24 hours.' or, 'How I got 12,000 subscribers in 30 days.' Assuming it's true, I would want to know that. Who wouldn't?

    I can't see much wrong with that one.

    I think that one's very bad, because it speaks of a quantitative approach to list-building, whereas in reality one of the most fundamental and important things to know about list-building (and some of your prospective customers may already know this much!) is that quantitative approaches are totally misguided. The biggest list you can build and the list that produces the most income, are never going to be the same thing, and the good and valid and reliable reasons for that predicate that it surely can't be right to specify/measure things according to "subscriber numbers"? I think that would really backfire on you.

    It's using a number at all that you need to avoid, IMHO. A quantitative approach kind of "blows your credibility" with the putative market?

    In the 1990's, maybe, and ever since? We've all seen "Who Else Wants To?" a few thousand times, by now, surely?
