Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 21, 2014 7:43 AM
Some folks have ask me if I do a blog. I'm a fairly long winded commenter with lots of opinions and thoughts on the topics I care about. The answer is yes, but not seriously. I thought this article might help me get more serious about that. Why waste your thoughts to be left to fly away with time? Someone might be able to build on them even if you don't. Sometimes sad to say we even forget some of our own best ideas when we have time to work on them. Why not record them and store them on a blog.

5 Characteristics Of High Converting Headlines

5 Characteristics Of High Converting Headlines | Entrepreneurial Passion | Scoop.it

The information you’re about to read is very powerful, but I need to offer two disclaimers.

 

All these techniques don’t work all the time in every situation. Nonetheless, the data does point to these characteristics as being effective most of the time.Different techniques work better for different audiences. Studies may say one thing, but your mileage may vary. You know your audience best.

Neil Ferree's curator insight, July 8, 2014 10:45 AM

The better your headline, the better your marketing. 


Use these five characteristics to improve your conversion rates. Here’s what works:


  • Use numbers (odd numbers work best)
  • Use 5-9 words if people are familiar 16-18 if they’re not
  • Use negative words, or at least few positive superlatives
  • Use a two-part model
  • Be very, very clear


I chose to Scoop this article from Neil Patel since he's one of the most respected and successful online marketers I know. 


The interesting thing was how the headline Neil used in this piece didn't score well when I tested it via AMI headline analyzer?


I made a minor tweak to get a score of 62% but left the original headline in tact. I only edited the image.

We're so glad you asked! Here's a little secret: You can do it right within software you likely already have loaded on your computer.

Mozilla Webmaker's Thimble: A "Gamechanger"—An Educator Innovator Webinar

Mozilla Webmaker's Thimble: A "Gamechanger"—An Educator Innovator Webinar | Entrepreneurial Passion | Scoop.it

description by Graphite

 

What's It Like?

"Thimble is an online webpage editor and set of remixable projects designed to help kids learn how to write the Web. As part of Mozilla's Webmaker project, Thimble displays two windows at once to show kids how the code they write creates the webpage they see on a browser. As kids edit code in the left-side window, the changes they make to things like color, font, and images immediately take effect on the right. Thimble projects featured on the Webmaker homepage are great for beginners and experienced programmers alike. Comments included in each project explain its code and how to change it. Thimble also lets kids compose their own webpages from scratch when they're ready to work independently. Using Thimble lets kids experience the joy of discovering that they, too, can create and publish webpages using authentic code.

 

Is It Good For Learning?

"Because it's designed to show kids how what they do changes how their webpages look, Thimble a great way to learn code, web design, and problem-solving skills. Thimble gives kids immediate feedback about personally meaningful work. Alerts about "bugs" in the code help kids easily find and fix any errors that keep their webpages from looking just right. Once students get some experience coding, they'll be ready and eager to see how they can use Thimble to publish their classwork and projects online using text and multimedia. The comments in each project and the online community of volunteer Webmaker mentors provide immediate support as students remix projects and begin making their own webpages. As a free, open, and well-supported platform, Thimble, like Scratch, provides one of the most inviting and supportive environments available for kids who want to code and feel like they're a part of the current learn-to-code and social coding movements."
