Getting More Clicks from Weird Email Links

Getting More Clicks from Weird Email Links

I got this idea from Frank Kern, who you must admit is a pretty clever guy.

In his emails, he makes certain words and phrases into live clickable links.

Instead of the usual, ‘Click here’ hyperlinks, he chooses seemingly arbitrary words and phrases that don’t have a direct call to action.

But what these words and phrases do have is an exciting or interesting aspect to them.

What kind of words?

Here’s a list compiled from the internet. And by the way, these are also great for livening up your copywriting, too.
