Unbounce listed four of those tweaks in one of their latest blog posts:

1. Write like a human… to other humans

2. Pay attention to the only three lines that matter

3. Make your emails mobile responsive

4. Ask questions

Here's my favorite passage from the article (about point #4):

I recently sent out an open-loop email for a client who produces high-end, elementary curriculum. All the email said was:

    Hi [Name],

    Are you still interested in elementary [niche] curriculum?

    Cheers,
    Client

The open rates were in the mid-60% range.

And the subject line was about as simple as you could get: “Hi [Name]” That’s right, exactly the same as the first line.

Even more wonderful than those open rates, people actually wrote back. A lot of people in fact. About an hour after the emails went out, the client sent me a short note of her own that simply said, “There’s too many responses. Can you help?”

Talk about a good problem.

Why, if that isn't the famous 9-word email... Nice, Mr. Orendorff! 😉
