Blank HeadlinesI get it. Sometimes it’s really, really hard to come up with an attention-grabbing email subject line or headline.

Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

How to _____ When You Really Want to ______

How Your Support Changed ______ into _______

Avoid the Biggest _______

Do You Have the “_______” Gene?
