These words were ripped from the headlines of many compelling articles. What I have shared with you is critical copywriting skills that few master bloggers reveal.

The purpose of a headline is to grab your readers attention. You want them to feel compelled to click on the link, or they could be missing out on something big. This is how to get your blog read by more bloggers and those that are currently searching the web for your information.

Next time pay attention to the headlines that make you stop and read them. What words were used to grab your focus.

The skill of a great marketer happens when you begin to question what you are reading and what is grabbing your attention. Now this doesn’t mean we forgo our research and insight with Keyword planner. We still need to know what our audience is looking for. But once we find that… throw in a few of these tantalizing words and see if your open rate improves. (message me with your results!)

      Great post Katrina! It is hard coming up with compelling headlines that can make sense to a reader. I’m getting more comfortable with words that may seem shocking or even a little exaggerated because once they read my content I hope it pulls it together for them.

    • Thanks for the list. Now I’m thinking, instead of the title I used for this weeks blog “Can I wear that fashion?” I could have said: Would you wear this fashion? I actually see the difference. I am enjoying blogging weekly as an opportunity to show some of my product and explore ideas and trends that relates to my business. For sure, I will use this list.
