How to write killer headlines
With so much information on the Internet nowadays, it is not wonder that many of us simply skimp the headlines before deciding whether to read an article or not.
A great headline can summarise what your article is about and lure a prospective reader into reading more. Eben Pagan said,” when a visitor lands on your page, you only have four seconds to capture his attention or he will leave”. It is no wonder that writing compelling headlines is one of the most important aspects that separates a great sales letter from a mediocre sales letter.
In this article, I will share with your some tips on writing headlines. At the end of the article, I will show you an interesting and fun tool that you can use to generate unique headlines that you probably will never even think of. Guaranteed. And the best part, it is free!
But first, here are some tips.
Tip 1: Write the Teaser type headline.
The teaser headline makes of curiosity to explain what you are going to write. It gives the reader a little bit of information, arouses his curiosity and makes him want to find out more.
Here are some examples:
“They laughed when I sat down at the piano- but when I started to play…”
“This one little tweak helped to boost my conversion by 316%”
Tip 2: Use a How-to headline
A how-to headline tells the reader what he is about to learn. This is the best way to get a targeted audience and is probably one of the most effective headlines.
Let’s say that you do not know how to create a squeeze page, and are looking for ways to create a squeeze page. You did a search on the Internet and come across article that says “How you can create a high converting squeeze page in less than 15 minutes even if you are technically challenged” Would you read on? I know I would. I was in that situation before!
