30 Most Effective Father’s Day Email Subject Lines

— May 29, 2017

Father’s day, which is just round the corner, is all about emotions and expressing love and gratitude towards your dad. And it is this emotion on which various industries like hospitality, travel, retail, consumer services, etc. have been banking their email marketing efforts on, so as to achieve a booming ROI.

It is true that the share of annual search for Father’s Day is lesser as compared to other major holidays like Mother’s Day, but the query trends certainly show a positive result- the search for ‘Father’s Day Gifts’ is on the rise.

The above facts are enough for us to decipher the importance of subject lines in email marketing. According to a study conducted by Yesmail, between 2014 and 2015, almost two-thirds of all Mother’s Day-themed emails had subject lines that boasted at least one ‘emotion’. The average open rate for those emails was 21.5% higher than that of campaigns without emotion in the subject lines (10.33% and 8.50% respectively).

Taking all these studies into consideration, as an email marketer, you need to pull up your socks, cash in on the opportunity, and plan an exciting email marketing campaign around the occasion.

Our Monks at the monastery, taking cue from these researches and after an in-depth study, have brought together for you a compact and useful collection of Father’s Day subject lines from 30 popular brands. Take a quick look:
