Tip #1

It’s all in the headline. Try to create at least 5 different headlines before you decide on the best one, 25 is even better!

According to Copyblogger.com:

“On average, 8 out of 10 people will read headline copy, but only 2 out of 10 will read the rest.”

Plus, David Ogilvy – “The Father of Advertising” – said:

“On the average, five times as many people read the headlines as read the body copy.”

Once you’ve create a headline or two, plug them into the Title Maker to experiment with alternative headline ideas.

Call to Action or CTAs.

A whole book could be written on CTAs, but I think one of the most important one’s for a blogger is a newsletter sign-up. This way you can let your readers know whenever you post a new blog, or give your readers an option for weekly updates.

To manage your newsletter subscribers, I recommend MailChimp email campaign manager is a great starting place;
