    Your open rates will be much more determined by the relationship and trust built with your audience BEFORE they opted in than your email content, headlines or order.

    Of course if you send them content not relevant to what they signed up or junk emails they will stop opening eventually but build that relationship up before hand and they will open them.

    Of course work on headlines and so on but this is actually quite a small part of things overall IME.

    I always like to ask questions of my list very early in the process. It works particularly well because I answer every response I get personally.

    The better your list gets to know you, the more they trust you, the higher the open rate.

    Good luck on your venture.

      List members involvement launches when you share with them something personal, close to intimate...
      something they couldn't get if not on your list!

      Something like:
      (...)
      - Tip
      - Personal touching history related to the niche
      and/or why you and your list members could be sharing
      interest in it
      - Tip
      (...)

      It also serves as frame interrupt, SURE they will pay attention!

      Be sure to put aside some time to read & reread every email answer
      to your personal sharing... It will prove invaluable!
      Have some kleenex near also

      Obey Kate, answer every very response!

      Waiting to know more,
      best regards.

      Adrian

    Didn't like my suggestions?

    You say you want the highest open rates but open rate will have little to do with the order of your emails and everything to do with the relationship you have with your subs BEFORE they opt in and to a smaller extent whether the content interests them and your headlines.

    Just telling us you'll have free ebook / tips / tips / tips / affiliate product isn't any use.

    Just test things out. It is personal. See what happens, I would give more stuff away. But remember you threat them like people, just bound with them and always, always give value!

    Caspoor,

    It is OK to send them free value but it is better if you put up a link at the end of the email for them to buy something. Nothing wrong with that.

      Promote your offer in each email. Offer them a tip and tie that into whatever it is you are selling/promoting

      Google Ben Settle and sign up to his list and see how he does it. I can't recommend him enough, he's 1 of the best email copy guys around.

    Too many variables for anybody to answer your question. A lot depends on the niche and all the key demographics. It also depends on how they signed up, what you told them to expect and what you have for long term goals.

    You might want to check out Perry Marshall, the "80/20 Guy". Sign up on his list and watch what he sends you. It's literally all stories, as suggested by InBox Entrepreneur up above.

    Storytelling is much more powerful than tips, unless you've established yourself with your subscribers and they know you only contact them with great deals on products they'd pay way more for elsewhere (such as if you're selling premium wheatgrass by the pound, or some other ultra-niche product.)

    If you're selling IM/MMO products, then it's probably best to study the established masters in the game. Such as Perry Marshall, Frank Kern, Eben Pagan, and others.

    Once you establish trust, you can do like John Chow do and just hammer your subs with pitch after pitch and get away with it.

    I would put the affiliate offer actually in the book. Before the text of the book, even. I would also combine the tips with the affiliate offer at the bottom. The longer you wait, the fewer people will continue opening your emails.

    This model is heavy on education and low on emotion. Subscribers need
    the former but mixed with the latter. People can become bored with
    facts (as good as they are) quite quickly. Your emails need some
    personality (newsletter type emails) to build "remembrance factor" and
    a following. Plus, after a while even you would become bored with
    the tips.

    I assume that the ebook would also contain tips?

    There is no wrong if you ask to buy if we promote the stuff exactly what our list want from us.Building relationship offering them free sruff before asking to buy is better
