Headline Writing: What Tricks Do You Use?

Headline Writing: What Tricks Do You Use? | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

David Ogilvy started Ogilvy & Mather, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world." That very same David Ogi;vy said.

 

“On average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.”

In the above post Sean D'Souza lays out some powerful examples to explain the importance of Headline Writing. D'Souza is one of my favorite thinkers on the subject of headlines and I'm glad I came across this post and have the opportunity to share it.


I always suggest to clients that they fit their headlines into one of these 3 types.


  1. Ask A Question  ( What Do You Do?)
  2. Make It Controversial  ( Without A Doubt It's Wrong)
  3. Make A Statement ( A Is Better Than B)


You don't need to stuff your headlines with keywords or use any keywords if they don't fit. The object of a headline is to stop the reader in their tracks, to make them ask themselves a question. And sometimes the object is to shock the reader into wanting to read more. Shock does not mean offend directly but it could mean indirectly offend what they think is normal.


I also wrote a headline post you might find interesting titled A Blog Title Is Paramount To Success. it explores headlines more.

Is There A Problem With Social Media?

Is There A Problem With Social Media? | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it
Despite social media hype, many small business owners see a problem with social media, particularly justifying expenses of social media campaigns.

 

"No one likes to be unclear about what they’re paying for and that’s especially true with small business owners. It’s hard to spend hundreds, or thousands, on something you can’t show or cleary explain to your spouse."

The reports of why Social Media Sucks for small business are rolling out at a furious rate. The truth may be hard to find with so many ranting opinions filling up the columns but one thing is clear. Spending tons of cash on social media is a bad idea if you don't know what's going on.


In The Problem With Social Media, John Follis does a nice job of recapping the current media frenzy about social media being a money pit for small business. His take is even handed but maybe a bit too even handed. There is a real crisis of understanding going on and coming down in the middle of it may not be the wisest choice. Still his piece is well worth reading.
