Today, a gent asked the following:
Curious what the best way to catch a lady's attention is in sending emails... I always have been curious and would love to know how many emails you ladies receive in say a day. I don't want to be passed over or trashed!! What should the subject of the email be to catch your attention to read further and hopefully lead to your reply and then some?
Dr. Tabu replies:
Don't be cute. If you put in your subject line:
I'm your stud-muffin, Tabu!!
I'm going to think you're crackers or a 15-year-old boy.
However, if you put:
Possibility of appointment March 3 at 8pm?
I'll open YOURS first! (Then maybe I'll open mine!)
Successful providers' mailboxes are afloat every day with:
"Wishful thinking" emails (When will you be touring to Sitka, Alaska?)
"Maybe her IQ's dropped" emails (You don't know me but I'm in Room 178 at the Day's Inn; can you be here in a hour?)
"Please get me off" emails (Hey, baby, I've got a big hard one for you. Can you handle my 10-incher? Call me now!)
"I'm a cop or clueless or both" emails (Do you offer BBBJ, multiple shots and can I bring a buddy?)
and so on....
My advice-- be pleasant, business-like and think about the impression you're making.
After all-- your first letter is like a first interview. Make it count!
