The Trick for Writing Powerful Headlines

Can’t Write Headlines?

Writing powerful headlines that capture attention, draw the reader into your copy, and SELL is tough.

It takes work. Trial and error. Brainstorming. Research.

What is this product really about? What is the ONE significant slam-dunk benefit? How do you convey this benefit in a little headline?

I sense you’re getting stressed just thinking about it. Or maybe that’s me projecting onto you because I feel the same way.

Writing headlines is HARD for one reason – there is so much riding on the words you choose, especially when it comes to the headline for your sales copy.

The right headline can mean six figures in sales, or maybe even seven.

The wrong headline can mean you make Zero. Zilch. Bumpkiss. Nada.

Next time you’re stuck, remember this trick:

“Can’t ?”

“Discover the __ (solution, remedy, answer, method, etc.) for __ (benefit 1) and __ (benefit 2)!

“You will __ (Whatever you wrote after “Can’t”) every __ (time period) Guaranteed or it’s FREE!”
