Scientifically Proven Ways to Write Emails that Actually Get Replies

– Contributed content –

Hands on keyboard


22 July 2018. f you are sick and tired of not having people reply to your emails then you have nothing to worry about. Here you can find out whatever you need to know about your email activity while also finding out how you can get more people to reply to those well-crafted messages.

Social proof

It’s a known fact that peer pressure really is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but that being said, it is also one of the smartest methods when it comes to email marketing as well. When you mention stakeholders in the company and when you send out an email to more than one person then this will help people to be more receptive and it also encourages them to hit the reply button as well. This is one method that you won’t regret trying and it can actually work wonders for either your campaign or even the emails that you send to your colleagues.

Provide a reason

It helps to provide a reason when you are emailing people or businesses, and using the word “because” is essential here. When you ask someone to do something for you, you will be far more successful if you provide them with a reason. So if you want your team to do something for you, give them a reason why they should do it and you will see your response rate go through the roof. You can even do an experiment regarding this yourself if you wanted, as this is a great way for you to really get people to see what you are trying to achieve. If people aren’t replying to you even then, consider looking into email list verification.

Hands on keyboard, cup of tea



If you are talking with someone and then all of a sudden you don’t get any emails back at all then this can be hard work. You may find it difficult to actually know if they are ghosting you or whether they are busy and the whole thing can be confusing to say the least. If you are able to try and make someone relax when you are talking to them or if you are able to make them smile then this can go a long way in terms of your communication. Humor is a great way for you to break down any objections and you can also win over an audience that is otherwise unreceptive.

Choose your numbers

If you really want your customers to reply to you then one thing that you can do is try and use digits in the subject line. You need to write them in their numerical form, as this stops the eyes of wandering readers. It also makes the reader much more likely to reply to your email when they look in their very overcrowded inbox. If you are able to use statistics then this will also make you look more credible. If you want to get some more tips then try and use the rule of three, where you split your emails into three paragraphs, and then use three options when discussing meeting times, describing a product or anything else of the sort.
