Subject lines describe the content of posts. Using strong subject lines helps make sure that posts are noticed by the community, and also helps community members align their skill sets with your needs.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to writing Subject lines, but we recommend considering these questions:
- Is the Subject specific to the content of your post?
- Is the Subject succinct?
Here are some examples of poor Subject lines:
- How does this work
- Advice needed
These Subject lines are succinct, which is good; however, they are also quite vague. As a result, they do not introduce community members to the main topics of the posts and may not elicit immediate responses.
Here are some examples of good Subject lines:
- Changing account access
- Setting up alerts
- How to advertise on YouTube
These subject lines are more specific, which helps community members find subjects relevant to their areas of expertise.
