How To Write Powerful Headlines By Al Martinovic
I want to tell you how I go about writing headlines. I like to keep swap files of headlines around for future use. And how I go about doing it goes something like this...
I'll find a headline I like, wherever it may be, and then I don't copy it word for word, instead I'll use a "fill in blank" approach. That way I get a generic headline that I can apply to almost any business.
For example, I find a headline I like that goes something like this:
"Give Me 5 Minutes And I'll Show You How To Put An Extra $1000 Into Your Pocket!"
In my swap file I would write it down using a "fill in blank" approach:
"Give Me _____ And I'll _____!"
I could now take this generic headline and apply it to almost any business...
Car insurance for example:
"Give Me 60 Seconds And I'll Show You How To Slash Your Car Insurance Cost In Half Every Single Month!"
Do you follow me...?
You don't want to steal any headline word for word. That would be a bad thing. But you can recycle headlines by using a "fill in blank" approach, and then applying that to whatever business you may be are a part of.
