What is an Email Subject Line anyways?

Your email’s subject line is the one-liner text that appears (usually in bold) inside your recipient’s inbox. Think of your email subject line as the introduction to your email, the title of your book, or the main headline of your landing page.

Your sender name is the “From” name that appears to the display’s left (or top if viewing on mobile).

The Snippet text is optional, also referred to as the second subject line or email preheader. However, it engages the email subject line’s context and provides additional information that may persuade the recipient to open the mail.
