Fun & Playful, Emojis: Can they help or hurt your emails?
It seems like a small thing, but the subject line in an email is a major factor in increasing your open rate.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves – is the emoji in a subject line right for everything? Probably not.
And if we send too many emails with Emojis it can also have a negative effect on consumers which ultimately unsubscribe.
So, what’s the answer? Testing of course! Make sure you test your subject lines using A/B testing. This can help you determine if the Emoji is an attention grabber or an annoyance.
As you put your tests together, here are some best practices to consider.
- It can be too much of a good thing: Just like WRITING IN ALL CAPS, too many Emojis may indicate spam to recipients.
- Context is key: with thousands of Emojis you can customize your choice to be relevant.
- Consider your target audience: A survey of 1,000 Americans showed that, millennials regard using emojis positively.
- Email Tone: Emojis can change an email from formal to playful. If you are messaging something serious, maybe skip the Emoji.
