$Name$ Here Is A _____ That I Think You'll Love...
Hate to break it to you, but an e-mail with that subject line from a stranger will go straight into the spam bin.
What you're trying to do with a subject line is get over the obstacle of never having met your link prospect in person, and being relatively unknown within your industry. People manage to do this all the time, and here's the secret: interact with that person in blog comments, on Twitter, on forums, and on other open platforms. Write blog posts that mention these people. Do that a few times and it won't matter what you put in your subject line, because people will be more familiar with you.
Obviously that approach doesn't scale. But if I'm one of 1000 link prospects that you're sending the same message to, I won't be biting anyway.
