Composing an email does not seem hard. Does it? After all, it's as simple as clicking compose, writing the text, attaching the documents (if any), and hitting the send button. But not really. THE BATTLE FOR ATTENTION IS REAL. According to Convince and Convert- approximately 35% of email recipients say they open an email based on the subject line alone.
If you want to know how hard emailing can be? Ask an email marketing campaign planner. There is so much behind the simple body writing and sending process.
Today we are looking at the three most important things you should never do in a business email?
The heading is an essential part of framing an email, as this is the anchor that decides whether your email is going to be opened or not. However, what follows next is the text that comes after the heading. This is called Preheader text.
A preheader text is the summary text that follows a subject line in the email when the email is viewed in the inbox.

An email preheader text, in many cases, provides a summary of the entire email in one long sentence. These preheader texts are usually what many mobiles, desktop, or webmail clients show readers to attract customers to open their mails.
When we write the preheader text, you need to keep it short. Because after a specific word limit, the further email does not show unless customers click your message. Thus, heading and preheader texts can make the difference between open email rates and increased bounce rates.

You need to ensure that you frame your message in 5-6 words that are easy to understand and contain a complete message.
Many marketers make the mistake of directly inserting videos into their emails. Today even a small video tends to consume up to 200-250 MB of email space. When sent in bulk, these messages bounce back.
The primary role of email marketing is not to get clicks but to attract the customers to reach your website and subscribe to avail the service offered by you that they have been looking for. If a consumer falls for the clickbait and finds nothing on the website, he will immediately unsubscribe. So, lure and procure your customers with careful efforts.
