Tips On Writing Email Subject Lines That Will Get Your Emails Opened

Writing Email Subject LinesOne of the trickiest issues entrepreneurs have to deal with is writing engaging emails that prospective clients will open. The most important part of an email is the first part the reader sees–the subject line. Email subject lines need to attract attention just like newspaper headlines do.

Here are a few tips on writing email subject lines that will attract attention and increase your open rate:

  • Be Specific – If you are promising something good, then put that as your subject line. If you’re giving them a free report on how to boost their Facebook Ads (for example) then let them know what they are getting.
  • Use Power Words – Don’t be afraid to add emotion buy using words that will bring out a specific emotion in your reader.
  • Shake It Up – Don’t be afraid to use bizarre phrases that will pique curiosity.
  • Mentors – Subscribe to lists of people you really respect and see how they use subject lines to their advantage.

Amazon Kindle Format Tips for Authors

Kindle FormattingIf you want people to buy your Kindle book, and hopefully give it a good review, it must be formatted correctly! As an author, formatting your Kindle book can really weigh you down and distract you from actually doing what is important–which is writing.  Poorly formatted kindle books can lead to refunds and bad reviews.

I’ve been thinking of the importance of this lately, and came across a great blog post entitled, “5 Quick Tips I Learned for Business Authors to Easily Format Kindle eBooks for Amazon.”

This reminded me of a few tips I would like to remind you of when formatting Kindle books.

  1. Proof Read – This may seem like a no brain-er, but customers do not like books with lots of grammatical or spelling errors. ALWAYS have someone else proof your book. When you know what it is supposed to say, you don’t always catch the mistakes. This goes for spell checking as well. Make sure you spell check your entire document several times. Just to be safe.
  2. Test Your Book – Test your book with Amazon’s online viewer to make sure it looks right. When you upload it to KDP don’t just trust that everything will look right. Use the Amazon Viewer to make sure it looks the way you want it to. If not, tweak it. Don’t just think that it’s good enough. People like their Kindle books to look like books. They don’t want a lot of awkward spaces.
  3. Font and Point Size – Make sure you are using a common point and font size. The most commonly used is Times New Roman 12 Point.
  4. Cover – Don’t underestimate the cover of your Kindle book. It needs to be eye catching. There are several free programs where you can make great looking covers on your won without breaking the bank. If you don’t feel you have time to do that, then consider hiring someone. But, make sure the cover represents what your book is about.

These are just a few tips, but they are good ones to start with. Do you have some tips for Kindle formatting?

New Free Images & Great New Public Domain Trend

Two important developments… First,apparently Microsoft has ripped out the gallery of images it used to provide to license holders for PowerPoint and other programs. That means you can’t automatically just use some image that comes up when you search for an image in PowerPoint or Here’s a really good post about it from my friend Ellen Finklestein – here.

That is one of the reasons I’m so happy to post this new list of public domain images from friend and business partner Tony Laidig. He’s also doing a webinar on product creation with images that will be very worthwhile – New Public Domain Images Sources

This is so cool because it taps into the new and growing trend of photographers who release their photos – most of them stunning – into the public domain for all to use in anyway they wish all without asking for permission or paying royalties.

So download this report now and start taking advantage of all these cool new images.

Strongly recommend: Register and attend the special training Tony will be doing on how to use these images to create info-products – super cool! The registration link for that webinar is at the end of the special report. Download here.

Get New Special Reports FREE – You Just Have To Help Out Other Community Members

A couple of weeks ago I did my “Ask Daniel Anything” (ADA) coaching. It’s a group coaching that I do from time to time to help you with your most pressing questions (its posted on YouTube here).

During that ADA coaching I featured two members of the community: Anne Buchanan and Dr. Jasmin Christensen.

I did this for a couple of reasons.

First, I want to more consistently help, feature and hold up as examples community members who are actually taking action on what they are learning and are succeeding despite set-backs and obstacles. Second, I want you to understand that I’d like to perhaps feature you in upcoming ADA’s (more on that below). Third, I wanted to give you the opportunity to get two new recently published special reports FREE that I will soon be selling for $27 each. They are…

5 Ways To Turn a $7 Report Into A $197 Order

How To Find The Best Blogs For Guest Posts

Here’s the story…

To get 5 Ways To Turn a $7 Report Into a $197 Order all you have to do is go an get Anne Buchanan’s audiobook called “The Power of God’s Word for Healing” (click here) only $14.97 and copy and paste your receipt into a ticket at the support site (here).

Now you may be wondering why specifically I am supporting Anne’s audiobook like this. Primarily it is because Anne went through a bunch a hassle, frustration and effort to get the audiobook out; she persevered, she kept going when she wanted to give up, she reached out to me and others in the Real Fast Audiobook community to get help. In short, she did what was necessary to triumph. You can hear the whole story here…

And that is the theme I wanted to get across to you. That things don’t always go smoothly and they seldom go exactly as planned even with the best help and training. But to succeed you’ve got to keep moving. You’ve got to demonstrate that kind of perseverance. And often (very often) when you do other doors and opportunities open up to you.

Case in point, my decision to promote Anne and her audiobook. That would have never happened but for the resilience and strength of character I witnessed in her. So yes, I am proud of Anne and I want everyone reading these words to go an BUY her book now. And even if you’re not Christian or particularly religious, I’ve given you a great reason to do just that: Get Anne’s audiobook and get our new special report worth twice the price for FREE.

Now speaking of strength of character I also wanted to feature Dr. Jasmin Christensen’s crowdfunding project. I am a great believer in the crowdfunding strategy for raising money for your projects. Through crowdfunding Dr. Christensen is trying to raise money to write her book(s) but what makes her different and it is the main reason I am telling you about it is HOW she is running her campaign. Specifically, Dr. Christensen could have run her crowd fund like other people do. That is, post her project, offer rewards and collect money.

Dr. Christensen, a retired U.S. Marine Corp counselor, instead pursued another approach. She decided that in addition to raising money for her own project that she would concurrently support an orphanage in India. I encourage you to hear the whole story here…

This approach spoke to me for two reasons. First, it is my aim to make this world a better place and leave it better than I found it and supporting a crowd fund campaign like this is clearly in alignment with that philosophy. Second, Dr. Christensen is also doing something else with her campaign; she is endeavoring to innovate. She is giving would-be supporters an additional and very powerful reason to support her campaign. In effect, she is offering a “two-fer” and one of the two offers is providing contributors with an instant emotional payoff in the form of giving to children who desperately need help.

I like this innovation.

For these reasons I am giving YOU an added incentive to give to Dr. Christensen’s campaign. Now obviously I would like for you to contribute at least $25 so you can help her, help the kids in India AND get a nifty tote bag for yourself. But anyone who gives at any level — even as little as $1 — will get the newly published special report called… How To Find The Best Blogs For Guest Posts.

Writing guest blog posts are a great way to build a platform and a list when you are just starting out and this special report gives you the particulars of how to do it in step by step detail.

So to get this report FREE here’s what you do. First, contribute to Dr. Christensen’s campaign by clicking here. Second, copy and paste your receipt into a ticket here and we’ll send you back the report.

Further, I want to make it clear that I get nothing when you take action on either/ both of these offers. No affiliate link. No consideration of any kind.

Lastly, I have a question for you. Would you like me to feature you and your project in future ADA sessions?

If so, please let me know in the comments below. Also, not that it is a prerequisite (because it is not) but I will say it is danged good karma to give in the same way and at the same levels that you’d like to get.

One other favor… even if you can’t give at this time could you share this post in your social media pages. And when you do can you drop the link to it in the comments below? Or at a minimum comment below what you thought of this post. I’ll respond personally to everyone who comments.

Thanks for reading… I want you to know that I do believe in you. You can do great things.

Exciting news!

Soon I will be starting a series of television
appearances on local affiliate news shows.

I will be promoting authorship and some of the
fast-writing techniques I teach in Real Fast Book.

At the moment I am scheduled to appear in Laredo,
Harligen and Brownsville, Texas and will be booking
more shows in the future.

Here’s the opportunity for you…

I am looking to promote two or three (maybe more)
Real Fast Book club members and their book(s) if
I get a chance during my appearances. This could
mean increased exposure and sales for you and your

Here’s what I am looking for:

* That your book is completed and for sale on Amazon

* That you used a fast writing technique to write
your book (preferably that you used the “record
and transcribe” or dictation method although any
fast writing technique qualifies).

* Whether you are a Texas resident (for these Texas
shows it would be optimal if you lived in Texas and
better yet lived in Laredo or the Rio Grande Valley).
If you are not a Texas resident you still may qualify
because in the coming I intend on traveling to
different parts of the U.S. to do these shows.

* Whether your book has become an Amazon bestseller
either in a category or overall bestseller list.
If you are not a bestseller, why not? Reminder:
There is several thousand dollars of bonus training
in the RFB members area on how to become a bestseller.

* Any story related to how the book either helped you
in your business or job or any other benefit that
came to you as a result of writing and publishing
the book.

* Members in good standing.

Both fiction and non-fiction books qualify. And both
Kindle and physical books qualify.

There is no charge for this promotion should I choose to
feature your book; as you already know I am very focused
on looking out for you as members and providing added
value to your RFB membership.

If you’re interested in having your story/ book featured
please follow these instructions precisely:

In the comments to this post please provide:

1. The full title of your book
2. Your name
3. A link to your Amazon listing
4. Where you reside (City/State/Country)

when; what category; if you have one, post a link
to a screen shot indicating your bestseller status
5. What fast writing technique you used, e.g. record
and transcribe, mind mapping etc.
6. In 250 words or less tell me the story of how the
book has benefited you.
7. The first taping is on July 27 so please provide
the above by the July 24.

Couple of other things you should know…

— There’s no guarantee that I will use your
book or any book at all – in other words for
whatever reason I may not feature any book

— I intend to feature as many different books is as
practical and I may or may not use the same books
from broadcast to broadcast

the Real Fast Book membership please only enter if
you are cool with that.
