5 Tricks for a Great Blog Headline

If you add up all those hours spent standing in supermarket lines scanning the magazines and tabloids it could be a month of your life. But your learned something in that time. Think about the headlines that made you reach for the articles — the quiz that would tell you if you were “the one”…

Writing a great headline is a sensational way to get started writing a blog post. Write the headline and the rest will fall into place.

  1. Don’t be subtle. Use strong keywords and deliver the content you promise.
  2. Use numbers. Tell people what they will get when they read your blog post.
  3. Be emotional. Best, worst, disaster, taboo, triumph, sensational, failure…
  4. Use reverse psychology. How to lose a guy in 10 days.
  5. Ask a “Cosmo Question” like “What do guys really want?”
