Writing an excellent blog start from the headline.
Do you ever wonder what to write about? Wondering what your audience would love to read?
If you answer yes to both questions: “Welcome to the blogging club”. Writing excellent post blogs might be a daunting experience, but with the right start and effort, over time will be a breeze.
This is said from a guy that disliked writing, his mother language is Italian and the grades at school were terrible.
So, today I’m going to show you the top 4 headlines that never fail to attract visitors to your blog while making YOU an authority on the blogging vast land.
Should we start? Let’s go!
1# THE NUMERIC HEADLINE
For some unhuman (maybe human) trigger, people tend to click on numeric posts.
Few example to get you started:
- 5 strategies to…
- Top 3 Nightclubs in New York.
- 7 inspiring…
- 22 awesome ideas to make money.
- 5 ways to make money online.
- 10 reasons why your _______ doesn’t work
Numeric headlines are the most powerful phrase catches for your blog mixed with “superlative adjective” to make the cocktail juicier.
Do you like cocktails?
I do… that’s great!
This type of headlines are useful in their nature while helping your readers to learn new things.
2# HOW TO
A blog without “How To” post is a sad cyberspace to visit.
Because people want to learn from you, and at the same time, you want to show your knowledge about the subject. This helps to influence others by growing your authority in a niche.
So, if you didn’t write any “How To” blog posts yet, roll up your sleeves you little hustler.
3# HOW I BUILD
This headline has the same function of the previous one (teach other something) but at the same time inspire your readers to take action upon your achievements.
A few example to get you started:
- How I build an Ebay business from scratch
- How I start investing in the market stock with $10.000
- How I learn to speak perfect English even with a Mexican father and Russian mother
You see, these headlines make you feel curious, and are helpful to show you how with real life example.
4# WHY YOU SHOULD
Whenever you want to convince your audience to do something but needs a bit of extra push, and “why you should” blog post is going to do the job.
I usually send out an email to my lists contact and link to this blog post. Very effective to set the right mindset in the readers before sending an email promoting a product.
5# THE STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO
This type of posts are great to attract traffic, and I mean a lot of traffic. That’s is great, but it’s hard to write them.
The reason is the length of the guides which start at 3000 words up to the sky. You might think that is hard because take a lot of time to write one, but actually, the real challenge is to write it in a way that engages people.
As you know, people online have a short attention.span. Probably, you’re already bored to read this blog post that is only 600 words. Right, Pal?
The best way to write longggggg blog posts is to use a lot of photos, graphic and videos to give your readers some relief from reading the text. Also, try to engage your audience with some question or funny thing along the way. A laugh is always a good thing between friends.
Don’t get discourage from this challenge, I know you can do it!
