Headlines, subject lines, topic sentences, hooks and thesis statements make up your reader’s first impression.
People read five times more headlines than they do the copy beneath. If you were to break down the costs of content, the headline is 80% of your budget. So don’t blow it.
There’s actually a formula to writing attention-grabbing headlines. Using tried and true headline formulas isn’t copying – it’s just smart. Once you can imitate what works, in copy writing you’re free to be spontaneous.
Until then, practice learning from the best and imitating what works.
