This blog post gives me the chance to tell my favorite joke:
Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows?
They are making headlines across the nation!
Have you ever finished an article and then been stumped as to how to title it? Whether you are writing a headline for a new blog post or your company newsletter, the basic principles of good headline writing will help you capture and pull in readers.
Headline writing skills only get better with practice and it always helps to brainstorm with colleagues or friends to try a few different ones to get your creative juices flowing. Next time you post to Facebook or write a Tweet, think about shaping it as a headline and I bet you see increased engagement and response for your efforts.
Please join me on Thursday for my GardenComm webinar (nonmembers welcome too!). I’ll share 7 easy methods for writing great headlines, we’ll do some writing exercises, and work on a few photo captions as well. Register at – https://gardencomm.org/GardenComm-Events-Webinars.
