The Top 20 SIPAlert Daily Posts From Q1 2018

"Unless you gain the prospect's attention early, he or she won't read any of your copy," writes Bob Bly, one of the leading copywriters in the country and the speaker for the April 18 SIPA webinar on Email Marketing: How to Increase Your ROI. "And if the prospect doesn't read your copy, he or she won't receive the persuasive message you've so carefully crafted."

Readers must now be fully aware of Bly's message because the SIPAlert Daily post—8 Ways to Grab Reader Attention Early—had the second-best open rate of any post in the first quarter of 2018. The only one higher was titled, How Knowing Your Customer Can Improve Your Bottom Line.
