Writing outstanding headlines will get you amazing conversions and it doesn’t take “nerd corps” qualifications to do it. However, many marketers still tend to fail at writing killer headlines, and that’s mainly because they aren’t focused on bringing out the best. Keep reading to see how you can start writing headlines that get results today.
First and foremost; while invoking curiosity in your reader through your headline can make a difference, remember that it’s not the only thing. Encourage readers by going one step further than piquing curiosity and offer a benefit or main point that should motivate them to read. But going overboard with this tactic can prove to be fatal, because try to create too much of suspense with the aim to get the prospect curious will only backfire. Use curiosity to your advantage but hold off on the major details for the body of the article. If you don’t think adding curiosity is going to help your headline, then don’t try to push it in. Your headline should be seamless and it each word should be interconnected to get the best results.
Secondly; make your headline as believable as possible. It’s great to include some sense of hype in headlines but avoid going over the top. It doesn’t take experts to tell that all does not seem square with the claims you’re making. This is a good reason to make sure your headlines are completely honest. When somebody reads your headline for the first time, they shouldn’t feel it’s fake or unreal; make sure every word you put in your headline lives up to what you’re going to say throughout your copy. When you make a strong start by using honesty in your headline it will get attention – the good kind.
Last, if your product is much better than the previous version, then make sure this is said in your headline. There is more to writing a successful headline than just placing the correct words. But it is also about knowing how to say something the right way. Letting your prospects know that your product is new or improved will increase their chances of reading the rest of the copy. Since they know that what you’re offering isn’t something they’ve already seen, it will get them curious enough to read further.
With these tips you’ll be able to get started right away writing headlines that are designed to grab those vital clicks. If you look around and notice all the successful copywriter and their headlines, you’ll notice a pattern. In fact, great headlines are often easy and uncomplicated. You should try to have this same element in your headlines too, because after all, writing good headlines is all about precision.
