FACT: Most people don't spend anywhere near enough time on creating a strong, compelling headline.
Which is why many copywriting experts... including John Caples, David Ogilvy, Brett McFall... and yours truly... recommend you invest at least 80% of your time on the headline.
Why? Because if the headline doesn't grab the attention of your reader? then you can be guaranteed that nothing else will.
So how many headlines should you write?
I always recommend that you generate at least 30-50 headlines to grab your customer's attention. Then choose the best headline you can find.
So how do you get ideas for headlines. The best method is to base your headlines on proven and tested formulas.
You'll find a bundle of these formulas in
? How To Write a Good Advertisement by Victor O. Schwab
(available from Amazon.com)
? Tested Advertising Methods by John Caples (available from
? Or my own 180+ page home study course: Cash-Flow

But here's a few examples to get you started:
Who else wants?
7 good reasons why
Let's make this practical with an example of how a mechanic could apply this to his business:
WARNING: Don't call any other mechanic until you read this
Announcing: The mechanic that guarantees he'll fix your car on time? or your money back
Who else wants a mechanic that specializes in fixing BMW's (perhaps this could be used in a BMW Magazine!)
How to instantly make your car as safe as possible
7 good reasons why you should call Scott's Mechanic's right now?
Remember, come up with 30-50 of your own? circle the 5 you like the best and then nut it all down to your one ultimate headline.
Hope this tip helps - there's lots more, so stay tuned.
