Tips For Writing Attention-Grabbing Headlines

 

1. Start With A Draft Headline

 

Most of the content marketers are often perplexed when writing the article, whether to write the headline first or the entire article. It sounds much similar to that popular riddle “Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?”

Though there is no sure shot answer to this as well, however, in this case, you can start off with a draft headline.

A draft headline is simply an outline of the final headline which can be modified after writing the whole article.

2. Make Use Of Numbers/Listicle

Headlines containing numbers usually get more impressions and visits compared to any other type of headline. As most of the savvy readers don’t have much time to invest reading your copy, a list-based post promises to be quick and easy to read.

Note: Odd numbers usually make your headlines more enticing to readers than even numbers.

It is also believed that odd numbers seem to help people digest and recall information more easily.

3. Should Be Unique And Clear

To make your copy stand out, you need to create a headline that is unique. Only this way you can convey the idea to your reader’s brain and make them believe that you’re different from your competitors.

Also, your headlines should be simple and clear. Nobody craves ambiguity or uncertainty, especially if looking for answers, solutions, products, or are about to spend money.

Hence, make your headlines as unique and clear as you can possibly be.

4. The How-To Headline

Headlines with questions can be effective when composed in the right way. The quick tip here is, never mention a question to which your readers can reply with a “no”.

With this approach, you can focus on a need or want and promise to fulfil that need or want. After all, the key ingredient of a ‘how-to’ headline is to show someone how to do something in a better way.

5. Write Search Engine Friendly Headlines

The key for making search engine friendly headlines is by using the right keywords in the headlines that make them more likely to come up in search engine results.

Using search engine friendly terminologies in your headline also ensures that you are using the same words, your customers use when they are searching online for the information you are providing.

So, there you go. Now that you know the basics of crafting attention-grabbing headlines, you are ready to light a fire under your conversion rate. Remember, a headline creates a difference between your copy being read and shared like crazy, or sitting unread and ignored.
