Will my email appeal my audience?
Further it is also essential to analyze the level of your audience, in sense junior, senior or mid-level.
Attractive Subject Line:
What’s the point of writing a power packed newsletter, without your audience opening your email. That is the reason why you should craft compelling subject lines to make sure your email is opened and not sent to spam.

Content is the King:
Great content can not only engage your audience actively but also boost your brand. Since 55% of readers spend less than 15 seconds on a page, it is important that your content doesn’t bore them. Instead it should be engaging, profitable and informative. Good content is essential for increasing the size of your audience online.
Bring in Social Interactions:
Include social media integrations for enhancing your brand visibility and audience engagements. Usually recipients can’t easily share emails pertaining to offers or something informative to their friends. So make it easy for them, by including social icons at prominent places in your email.

So make sure your content works across multiple devices (laptop, tablets) and especially in mobile. Make sure you don’t write big-big paragraphs when creating your newsletter. Keep it simple and concise.
