The best marketer I ever worked for swore by this rule:
Call it what it is. They can’t read your mind.
The following three titles all describe the same posting.
Which title would draw the most readers?
Which title would rise higher in search engine results?
- Golden Snapshots
- Short Posts that Draw Readers
- Posts Made of Steel Not Wood
Easy to see. Hard to remember. If only I had a billboard in front of my desk instead of dead air. I need to go back to rename some postings so readers can easily tell what’s in them.
Creative writing is two blogs down and then to the left. Sometimes I’m too clever by half.
Do you have the same problem that I do?
