What Makes a Good Email Subject Heading?

I just received 13 emails from an associate… all in a row… one after another. And I was so grateful she sent each one separately!

Some people may prefer to get one email with all the information, but these 13 emails, while on the same project, were each on a different section. When you have so much information like this, it’s actually easier to receive – and store – the different sections in different emails, rather than trying to search one endless email for that little snippet of information you may want at any time.

Tash at Word Constructions mentions this on one of her posts – email subjects – that’s worth reading. Plus, she shares several other great tips for constructing a good subject heading to help get your emails read.

Here’s to your success in business…




  1. Wow, 13 emails in a row is impressive! I’m pleased she made life easier for you with separate subjects!

  2. Absolutely! I think that’s a record for me… now to start reading them all 🙂

  3. Definitely easier to have separate email on different subjects! I find that I’m constantly looking for emails that I’ve kept but can’t find because I know it’s in this 1 email I’ve received.

    Word Construction’s a bonus! I’ve put it in my favourites 🙂
