Headline Makeover Compliments of CopyBloggerBy
Last week or so I was visiting the CopyBlogger site and was reading the post on improving your headlines. It’s author had made an offer to review some of the headlines and suggest improvements. I figured this was too good an offer to pass up, so I left a comment.Â Much to my surprise, this morning I read his latest post and my headline was one chosen to be re-written. Thank you Mr. Copyblogger!
Here is what Mr. Copyblogger had to say:
Original headline: Youâ€™ve Only Got 30 Seconds or 20 Wordsâ€¦
- I like the original headlineâ€”itâ€™s constructed well and the use of the ellipse heightens the curiosity factor.
- My approach applies a bit more specificity, which tends to increase the drawing power.
- It also provides more information about the general topic of the post, which helps with non-regular readers and offsite avenues such as Digg and Delicious.
