SUBJECT line for an email campaign (& some email text wording)

  • Status: Pending
  • Prize: $25

Contest Brief

This initial contest is to help me decide who should receive the whole contract.

The winner will be the person (or persons) who can write a subject line that will get the email opened. I can test different subject lines. Any tie-breakers can be for the selling sentences you may have within an email draft.

"How to Study More Effectively" is a book written a few years ago. I wish to give away my book to people, especially students. You can read download it now, and read it at your leisure.

There is to be no charge for the email recipients who want to have an electronic version of my text.

What is very important, to me, is to have my book available to as many students as are willing to accept the gift.

The subject line is critical. In my opinion, the subject line is more important than the wording of the sales letter.

Attached is a copy of the work I wish to give away to the recipients of the email


As a bonus, for you (and the students), I have attached a copy of The Seven Segment Solution. This is a one-page rendition of techniques and tips I offered to help people build wealth. I am now retired, so I would like the Seven Segment Solution to be given to as many people as can, perhaps, profit from this single page.


If you are willing, please let me know what you think of the few pages in the opening chapter of the book for students. Those few pages should take only a few minutes to read. It can help you understand why I am not selling my book. I just want as many people as practical to be exposed to the book.

The opening chapter may help convey my desire.


Fair enough?
