The headline is undoubtedly the most crucial factor of the sales copy. You could have the best sales copy ever written but a poorly written and not thought out headline will almost single handly ruin your business.The following points should ensure your super hot headline is quality and will force to read on.
1. Ultra Specific
You need to be as specific as possible. For example. Instead of “how an ebook author makes thousands every month”,change it too “how an ebook author makes $2,678.85 every month”.It’s more specific and a lot more believable.
2. Keep it unique and original
You really need to come up with your own original headline.For example, i am sick of seeing this headline. “Finally,the simple way to get free to your site. Its this word “finally”,it’s been totally overused.
3. Keep the urgency
This really forces the reader to view the sales page further.Give the headline a sense of urgency. For example, giving a special offer for reading on,deadline dates or total amounts available.
These techniques have personally been proven by myself, they work some better than other, the key is to keep tweaking and testing with the above points always in mind.
