Do you have your blog headlines down and ready for action?
In this posts I want to give you a few tips on creating your titles and getting the most from a good title.
Choosing your killer headline
Creating a killer headline for your blog is essential. It’s the door to your blog post and a one we need to make as interesting as possible. Paint your door with pink and blue spots and it will be recognized.
I’m not saying create a crazy headline, not at all. However you don’t want to create a boring one either do you? The fact is if your headline doesn’t appeal, your blog post has less of a chance it will be read.
Let’s call it curious. The more curious you can make your headline the greater the chance you have of people reading your posts. The more people you have reading your posts, the more interaction you have and the more influential you can be when it comes to providing info you can sell. Does this not say that your headline has got to be just as important as your content?
Think of it this way. We all read the local tabloids and have a favorite magazine don’t we? The next time you take a look at a newspaper or magazine, take a look at the headlines. Or more to the point be mindful of what catches your eye. I will guarantee it will be the headline which you read which will determine if you will read the article.
Headline stealing is a great way to create great headlines. You see magazines have been stealing each others headlines forever. There are certain headlines that are always used to catch the eye. Not every single newspaper, advertisement or magazine uses a completely unique headline, this is obvious. They use what works, or at least variations of what works anyway.
Below you will find some great examples of headlines you can use on your own blog. These should help you grab some attention and give you readers some attraction. There are different types of headline you can use as well as actual headlines.
