About the Episode

The what's what...

 On this week’s episode of Fanatical Fridays, Zach and Mickey get real tactical and unpack the frameworks they use to write great subject lines. 

Mickey explains what enrollment marketers can learn from Jerry Senfield about crafting great subject lines and Zach introduces listeners to the “3 C’s of Copywriting” that he uses to increase opens, clicks, and conversions. 

The duo concludes with a list of words that you should (almost) NEVER include in your subject lines to avoid being kicked into the hell that is “junk mail” or “spam”. Get excited for a  jam-packed, entertaining, and highly tactical episode of your favorite Friday podcast!
