Whats a good subject line to email prospect? I am asking if they would like a quote (in other words). But I would like a great subject line so they actually OPEN my email.

If you figure it out please pm me the answer. That way I can make BILLIONS selling it to people that want their email opened. Don't be confused with it selling anything, it won't sell but there must be a way to get people to open it before they trash it.

The odds of email marketing working is slim to none.... maybe less.

Hello.. Just to let you know, I stuck with a the basic subject line : Janitorial Service

And I personalized the email as much as possible to include the persons name if I could find online, and I am already seeing great responses. Here is my email below:

Good afternoon _______,

Would you be interested in receiving a commercial cleaning quote from us? If you were thinking of changing your cleaning company, I would love to stop by and introduce myself. Then provide you with a cleaning quote, at your convenience of course.

In the mean time, if you would like more information about our services, please visit our website here: www EdmontonOfficeCleaning com. As well, you can call/email any time.


Best regards,

Lamar Saunders

I did email marketing when I had my cleaning franchise. I sent out about 250 emails. I only got 1 account from it. I now know why. Nobody else wanted it. lol

I did get a lot of responses from post cards.

Depends. If you can afford it. Send out new fliers to about 30 SMALL business in your area. Start small. Stay away from big name franchises. Make a nice flier that's basic and to the point.

Add a coupon to it. FREE window wash (15 windows outside) with this coupon. FREE commercial/residential cleaning quote, No obligation or contract or hidden fees. . One coupon per business/ household.

Now your getting your foot in the door. You might think the rest of cleaners- I don't work for free. Well then good luck.

Some of those people might give you a tip. Some might refer you to another business. Sometimes you have to give to receive.

Think about it.

It Can work: Anything Can Work

We use email marketing for follow-ups, selling, marketing and general customer communications.

These are all WARM leads. They have either used our services in the past, or have made some sort of contact via our website or social media.

Writing a good headline to get opens and clicks is a matter of doing A/B tests based on your demographics and your audience.

Industry average open rates are only about 3.4% however through testing headlines over the past couple of years, and I still test, we have managed to average a 25% open rate.

Being friendly and to the point really helps. Make sure the title matches the actual info in the email otherwise your click rate will drop.

There is tons of info on conversion rate optimization online...

Co-Schedule also has a headline optimizer tool that is free to use.:thumbup:

Here are some I thought of off the top of my head. Feel free to try them:

Are your kids playing in a dirty home? - We can help.
Embarrassed when guests come over? - You might need a home cleaning.
Got dirt? - Don't worry, we'll take care of it.
When was the last time your home got the attention it deserves?

1. “Let’s talk about [topic/idea]!”
If you’ve done your research, you should know what topics interest your prospect. This subject line should spark some curiosity when it appears at the top of the prospect’s inbox. Everyone enjoys discussing their favorite subjects, which makes this subject line so enticing. Consider playing around with this, using business and personal topics, depending on the tone you want to take.
2. “A [better/smarter/faster] way to [reach a specific goal]”
Everyone wants to be able to achieve their goals faster and more efficiently. The key to this cold email subject line is your understanding of the recipient’s most pressing business pain points. Rather than coming to him or her asking for something, you’re coming to the conversation as a giver – a bringer of solutions. Who wouldn’t want to engage in that conversation?
3. “Can I help you with [reaching a specific goal]?”
This subject line takes a similar approach as the previous one, but with a slightly more submissive tone. Rather than outright offering your services, skills or expertise, you’re asking the recipient if they require your help. To be effective, you should know what challenges with which the prospect is currently struggling. This tactic shows that you understand their situation but does not make any overt assumption about their ability to solve it.
4. “Quick question regarding [project]”
With this prompt, you’re doing two things: You’re placing the recipient in the position of the expert and you’re showing that you value his or her time. When you start with the assumption that the prospect holds the answer to a key question, you make them feel good. People like to be helpful, especially when they can show off some niche expertise.
5. “Hey [name], check this out”
Have you ever heard your name shouted in a room of strangers? You look around expecting to see someone you know, but really there’s just someone else in the room with the same name as you. This is the cold email subject line equivalent of that shout. It piques the reader’s interest using a familiar tone and practically begs them to open the email.
6. “[Name], looking forward to seeing you at [event]!”
If you know your prospect will be attending an industry event – perhaps they’re a speaker or brand representative – this prompt will certainly grab their attention. It assumes a certain level of familiarity, but that’s the whole point of networking at events. Showing that you’re going to the event also shows that you likely share the same interests and goals as your prospect.
7. “Where do I even start?”
Start with what? Your target reader will be curious to know what has you so exasperated. Is it a problem they can help you with? There’s only one way to find out – by opening the email. Since this subject line is abstract, you’ll want to make sure the first line of your email is just as eye catching – and much more specific.
8. “Are you prepared to overcome [specific challenge]?”
Once again, this is a subject line that indicates your understanding of the recipient’s challenges. You’ll have to do some research to make an informed guess at what challenges are most pressing to him or her. If you have that information, you’ll be able to spark the prospect’s interest in a potential solution.
9. “[Name], I need your advice”
This is the email equivalent of Princess Leia’s famous plea to Obi Wan Kenobi. Stopping just short of saying the prospect is your only hope, this subject line indicates that you respect the prospect’s expertise on a given subject. But note that it doesn’t specifically call out the topic. That’s intentional. The reader has to open the message to find out what he or she is needed for.
10. “Have you been to [local establishment]?”
This tactic requires some (light) cyber stalking. If you know where the prospect works from, you can search for a highly rated restaurant near his or her office. Then, you can request a meeting with them at this neutral location. If you’re lucky, you’ll land on the prospect’s favorite lunch spot, and it will be that much harder to turn down the invitation.
