I found this article via quick sprout. Thanks Joanna for the wonderful thoughts and sharing! Will be interested to see more tests of this nature. Full quote always in the email. Thanks for the heads-up, Ramin. Very cool! Great stuff Joanna. Asking a question, as you do in the title of this post, and in two other headlines, is a really strong curiosity builder. Why is that???

This was such great use of the curiosity gap…from your email subject line to the actual test. Nice, Joanna. The curiosity gap is a great tool to have in your back pocket. Takes some practice to find a nice balance. Agreed, Corey! Toying with people to boost clicks is obviously not a great strategy!
