Five of Your Headlines… Remixed

Five of Your Headlines… Remixed

Reader Comments (35)

  1. I can’t beleive that this is free!
    Thanks for the the tutorial Brian.

    Although, I was hoping that be included:
    The World’s Most Photorealistic Vector Art

    Thanks to your past article I was able to construct that great headline.
    But now, that my headline is everywhere, I was left with a dillema:

    How do I create a headline for a tutorial on Photorealistic vector art?
    Should I reuse the world “photorealistic,” which might be construed as my old article?
    How about if I want to create a series on photorealism, should I still use the word?

    My plan:
    1. How to create photorealistic vector art, the ultimate guide:
    note that the “ultimate” word was inspired by you.

    2. The world’s most photorealistic 3d faces
    or the Most Photorealistic 3D faces in the universe?

    Thanks Brian.

  2. Great ideas. #2 was mine, and I definitely see now that element “What to do about it” as being critical. If you just have the first part, then yippee-skippee you have customers that leave like the rest of us. This hooks them in as they are being persuaded that the advice to follow will actually solve the first problem.

    Wonderful blog, thanks for helping us!

  3. Nice points you made. Mine was #4 and I really appreciate you taking the time to teach all of us some new strategies. Your suggestion about the specificity is something I will keep in mind for future posts.

  4. This kind of “process work” with explanations is quite helpful. I tend to tweak my headlines trying to get both the message across, and make it a “grabber” – and sometimes I may over polish them, making them less effective. Seeing how several already good headlines can be made more effective by just adding or rearranging a few words, makes the process a little less mysterious and hit or miss. Thanks.

  5. I’d love to see this done on a regular basis! All the general tips you give on this site are great, but a list of real examples really hits home.

    And thanks!

  6. Thank you so much for selecting me! (#3) You are a genius! The new headline is brilliant! I’ve just changed it and republished it along with how you helped me make it better! Your explanations, ideas and writing are so perfectly expressed. I aspire to be able to hire you one of these days soon. I want your touch on my whole website!!

  7. Brian, this post is sofa king useful! I can’t believe how easy you make it look. I’ve read the rules, I know the words we’re supposed to use and still … it’s just not as intuitive for me. I’ll be back for more – and I’m with Ariane: need you for my whole site.

  8. I’ve been reading your blog
    for many months now…

    This post,
    and many others,
    remind me why the internet
    is such a powerful place to learn
    from colleagues in the field.



  9. Your reasoning is amazing, Brian! Thanks a lot for explaining your headline magic, we all can learn something from your wisdom.

    I hope you see enough interest to make this a regular event on your blog.


  10. One suggestion about #1: Drop the last three words.

    “Wake Up Feeling Great With These 12 Tips”

    That reduces the head to two simple phrases: “Wake up” and “12 tips”.

    Even if the reader didn’t know it was about sleep, that promise should be tempting enough to encourage them to click on it and find out more.

  11. Bill, interesting. I see your point.

    That’s one of those situations where you never know for sure unless you split test the headline.

  12. Oooh. Before I came upon this article I had actively been working on my headlines and applying this idea on my own posts. Given the redundancy of so much stuff out there, having an interesting headline really makes the difference. Thanks for the samples, it is great to refer to everytime I need to come up with something.

  13. Hello Brian,

    Headline Ads have always been a struggle for me until I started using question headline ads which have been somewhat successful. If you have a chance, I would greatly appreciate if you could provide me with a few suggestions on improving my headlines for my site.

    Here are a few I use:

    – Are You Succeeding Online? I Am and So Will You.
    – Do You Want To Succeed Online? I Have and So Can You.
    – I Will Pay Your Way In and Advertise For You.

    All your tips from your other submissions make so much sense and I am sure you would find a few good ones for mine.

    Much appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Paul Rose

  14. I will use this techniques on my blog, on affiliate reviews, because it’s important for catching the attention.
    This post was godsend to me, as starting up to building an internet marketing busines could be hard or easy. Tips here will surely make it the latter.
    Thank You

  15. Did anyone see #5!!! The world is a better place because of this guy. Thanks for being pro-active. Brian Clark you are top-notch!

    Fantastic job with the headlines by the way!
