Email subject lines for children’s stories

A World Of Email Subject Lines…

Here at Phrasee a strange thing has happened to us over our first year in the field of email subject line optimisation.

The more email subject lines we look at (and believe us, there have been a lot), the more we begin to see everything in email subject line terms.

We’ve touched on this in our blog before…

We’ve looked at email subject lines for Oscar Winners, Grammy Winners and even US Presidential candidates.

But there’s more. Much more.

So many areas of our lives and culture that can be analysed and broken down into optimised subject line language bites.

Frankly, it’s just not something we can stop doing, even if our CEO, Parry Malm, suggests that we may be “over-egging the joke”.

We still find it funny and interesting.

And we know we are not alone.

We know this because we find things like this from webcomic xkcd.com:


Awesome stuff.

So, with all due respect to Mr. Malm, we’ll just keep subject-lining things and talking about it, and writing about it.

Because, if you think about it, this is all really his fault anyway for starting the company, employing us and slowly turning us all into an army of subject line-bots who are awesome at just one thing.


It all started in our childhoods:
