Crafting a Subject that will not be blocked by brain of Mr43

  • be consistent between Subject <-> Body. If you promise, deliver.
  • don’t clickbait. Ever.
  • write efficiently, short 100-200 words max. No one you want to influence has time for your (too_long) shit.
  • if your mail body doesn’t add anything (content-wise) to what you already said in the Subject, you’re using wrong media – use SMS; or something else that drives the deed better.
  • don’t write random shitty noise articles
  • be timely; don’t send stale information that does not have any historical value (either) – if your product / message has historical time value, have an API or store directly to user’s Solid (MIT / Inrupt) pod
  • concentrate – make your message about one clear actionable thing
  • be personal if possible – don’t bulk-post
  • if you send out professional HR mails that are supposed to really entice applicants, make them good
  • use normal case, DON’T SHOUT ALL THE TIME
  • don’t send message whose Subject is: “Please do not reply to this mail”

Hi! A bit updated description. Code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog I wrote 80% of technology related articles, mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
