man holding newspaperThe title to your article is THE most important feature for whatever it is that you are trying to convey in your writing.

Technically you could have the best copy ever written, but if your title doesn’t grab your reader’s attention then it won’t help you one little bit.

Why?

Because no one will notice your post.

Having a title that a reader just can’t help but to click on is THE best method of gaining attention with text.

Titles like the following brief list, are most likely to gain lots of attention:

– 7 Things to Know When Hanging Shutters
– How to $ave Hundreds of Dollars in Legal Fees
– Want a Great Paying Job?
– Get a Free Website!
– The Worst [add product or service here] Bought in [add year here]

Selecting a title can be done quite easily if you think about a problem you are aware of in your niche, one which a reader might be experiencing.

Then in your article be sure you offer up a solution …or two, or three, or four that addresses the problem.

You might even choose to simply enlighten your readers by providing inside information about your niche or, just point out some well known myths and offer the truth.

These are only a few ways to help you think more creatively and to explain why writing great headlines is so important.

Do make sure that your articles truly deliver what is promised in your post titles. Not delivering your promised headlines will only serve hurt your content, as no one likes to be misled.

Side Note: Highly informative posts with titles that are short and catchy will help your readers tweet your posts too. Twitter used to only allow 140 characters in a tweet; and by characters, spaces are characters too.

However, in the year 2020 Twitter allows 280, so short titles are no longer a requirement… BUT, highly informative titles will ALWAYS rule!

Armed with your newly chosen headline, write your article jam-packed with a great quality AND unique content, making sure to answer any questions your readers will find useful, and your content will be loved and shared by many.
