You can put a lot of time and effort into a blog, article or email which will never be read if it doesn’t have the headline that is equally as good as the content. Here are a few tips on creating a headline to bring in traffic to your website.
1. Creating a list, using a specific number
These lists can be anything from 2 points to 50 or more. A longer list could generate a lot of traffic, but the information given must all be valuable and relevant, otherwise, your audience could leave your website immediately after feeling misled by an irrelevant headline.
