How To Write Good Headlines

 To write good headlines, you need to study good headlines – headlines that work.

Because the more you "see" it, the faster you can successfully start to capture attention.

To write compelling headlines, use this simple checklist:

• Be CLEAR, not Clever

• Specify the WHO

• Specify the WHAT

• Specify the WHY

• Twist The Knife

If you follow this checklist, you will write headlines your readers can't help but want to click on (seriously).

​Not because you "tricked" them, but because you successfully spoke DIRECTLY to their wants, needs, hopes, dreams, and desires.
