100 Of The Best Headlines Ever Written
By Richard Simmons
Just pick up any newspaper and what's the first thing that attracts your attention?
It's the headline. The same applies to the front cover of magazines. Recently a headline on a well known women's magazine caught my eye. It said '8 ways to know if your man is cheating on you.' If I was a woman I would certainly want to read it. Wouldn't you ?
It's no secret that editors have known this. Usually headlines incorporate on of the following , sex, violence, killing etc..
But did you know that the best copywrighters don't just pluck headlines from thin air. They read existing ones to help get the creative juices flowing. Most of the time they modify an existing one to fit their product or service. You can do the same. Don't copy them just use it as the basis for your business.
