  • [00:35] Salesloft has people sending millions of emails out.
  • [01:33] Research shows that subject lines with just one word out-perform the average email by 87%.
  • [01:50] This casual subject line mimics more casual emails you might receive from friends.
  • [03:15] “Hey, Jane” performs better than just “Jane”.
  • [04:00] The more “human” the subject line, the better.
