Making it extra personal


! The most powerful example of something personal is something that you share with the reciever that is rare (i.e. not relevant to others). ! As an example of a good subject line if you and the receiver both went to the University of Michigan is: Hail! to the victors valiant ! This means nothing to people that didnt study at the University of Michigan, however if are alumni you would instant recognize this as the start of the chorus of the University of Michigan fight song4
