Thus, you need to keep you emails tempting, engaging and clear. You can do so by adding a simple call-to-action button that gives the reader a clear idea of what they are expected to do.
Apart from wielding the so-called statement like ‘Download Now, or start your free trial', be unique and try to focus explicitly on benefits that you can provide your audience with.
