  1. All the headline tips are very appealing. It is true that a headline of a blog can either attract of repel audience. The one which I find most effective is to inlude numbers is a headline. For example, 6 ways to ______ fast, or as mentioned above, 5 No-Fail Strategies for ______________, etc. These kind of headlines make blogs seem to be more interesting and insightful. Thank you for sharing.

    • I agree Jennifer. Numbers really do attract readers. And if a writer is stuck for an idea, a list is always a good fall back strategy for a new blog article.

  2. I agree with the previous post. Your list provides sound headline starters that have worked before and will work again.

    It’s hard to find anything original on the web or in our own minds, for that matter. When someone is looking for something, headline starters that have worked in the past, will work again and again and again…

    • As long as you’re putting your own spin on the article itself, why mess with what works. After all, I still companies using the old Caples’ standby – “Are you making these mistakes with … “

  3. Hey Gloria,

    As an online marketer and consultant to company owners I base my income on results meaning if I don’t achieve results for my clients I don’t get paid and I can honestly tell you that I still use the headline starters you have above and they deliver outstanding results time and again.

    Thank you for making the time to help people.

    You are a gem 🙂

  4. Great post – thanks! The only problem is that too many people these days use the same headlines again and again. Thus you see hundreds of them daily and maybe they work worse…

    • You do have a point. My suggestion is to use these as a starting point to get your creative juices flowing, and then change them around a bit to make them different.
