Two tips for you today … both connections to goose your headlines and titles for articles, blogs … and yes, books. Headline writers make big bucks for the tabloids, magazines, newspapers and other forms of media. They use adjectives that pull in the emotional, empatheticl and spiritual strings on the reader. It’s a “gift” some say to be able to do that … and here’s my gift to you … they are both freebies.
1 The American Marketing Institute created it’s headline analyzer to give you a percentage score on emotional, intellectual and spiritual. It’s website is AMInstitute.com.
2 CoSchedule has a great blog post headline analyzer will score your overall headline quality and rate its ability to result in social shares, increased traffic, and SEO value. Very cool indeed. It’s website is CoSchedule.com.
