Day 4 – Thursday: Scouring the Web for Headline Ideas
Sometimes we’re stuck for ideas, and we look around the web for inspiration. We see an exciting headline and want to apply the same template to our next blog post.
While this method can inspire your headline (and even a blog post topic!), you have to be careful that you still include a specific benefit for your ideal reader.
Today you look for a template around the web and apply it to your own topic. This method often works best if you search for a headline outside your niche. I sometimes browse Cosmopolitan and Men’s Health covers on Magazine.com.
Your action points for today:
- Find a good headline outside your niche
- Use the headline template to write a headline for your own blog
- Use the checklist of Monday (see cheat sheet below) to review your headline before posting it in the forum; post the original headline you based it on, too.
