Enough already! If you’re quite literally begging for money (“I’m pleading” “There’s no hope” “We’re begging you” “We’ve got nothing left”) perhaps take a look at your soliciting strategy.
Please stop sending 20 emails per day pleading for money. It’s annoying, and I can guarantee you it’s getting people (like myself) to not even open the email and send it straight to the trash bin. Maybe if you had a better, perhaps more positive way of getting funds, you wouldn’t have to resort to begging.
I don’t work for the Democratic Party, but I’m taking it upon myself to offer some solutions.
Here are a few potential subject lines:
“Almost there! Your donation will put us over the top!”
“We’re going to win thanks to you!”
“Your donation will earn you a virtual high five!”
“You can go with one less coffee, use that $5 to win back the House!”
Begging people? C’mon now. Be smarter than that. Go with positive messaging and maybe just send one email per day…. two tops. Any more is excessive and not effective.
Thanks for playing, and I hope you take this advice to heart.
