Whoa, it’s almost that time of year already.
Anyone in any niche can send out an email that ties in with Mother’s Day.
You don’t have to sell greeting cards, flowers or chick-knacks to acknowledge Mother’s Day in your marketing.
Even if you’re in the internet marketing niche, surely you can think of a lesson you learned from your mom you can tell as a story and then promote a product at the end.
Barbara Corcoran wrote an entire business book based on the lessons she learned from her mom that she has used in building her billion dollar real estate business in New York.
Each chapter title is a lesson she learned from her mother and they make for good email subject line inspiration. Here are a few:
“If you don’t have big breasts, put ribbons on your pigtails.”
“It’s your game, make your own rules.”
“Go play outside.”
“Moms can’t quit.”
“Jumping out the window will either make you an ass or a hero.”
If you’re a retailer who sells products that would be of interest to women on Mother’s Day, you can’t ever go wrong with subject lines that announce a discount and encourage women to buy something for themselves for Mother’s Day. As a mother I’ve fallen for a subject line like that a time or two. 🙂
As they come in, I’ll post Mother’s Day subject lines that arrive in my inbox (the ones I think are acceptable, that is. Too many of them are of the “Mother’s Day Deals” variety). If you have any you’d like to share, feel free to post them in the comments:
