What would make a good title of Biography book?

by 9 comments
Hi

What would make a good Biography title and tagline to command attention and interest?

let me get the ball rolling...using my warrior name as title name of person, I have the following suggestion:

----------------------------------
smak

The Untold Story
-----------------------------------

Following direct response principles, obviously being clever with words,using cliches or bland boring words is not in scheme of things here.

Cheers.

    Hi there

    This will help a bit:

    What's the person's background? Why do I want to read about him or her anyway? Hard to make a title without knowing a bit about that.

    Example - are they someone with a special story to share? A marketing genius? A doctor? Teacher? Animal Trainer? Elephant Mad Scientist?

      The Biography is on a famous ex-sportsman of international fame.

      Let's have more ideas.

    "Let's have more ideas?" And not even a please in sight...

    In my opinion, that's a pretty rude way to ask busy copywriters "can I have some of your ideas for free?"

    Cheers and I wish you luck with your book.

      I find it very inappropriate and rude that you express your grudge on the main thread when it would have been more sensible of you if you had written the same thing to me directly via private message.

      BTW, I was only following on to my initial post. Maybe you overlooked that.

      No hard feelings.

    Look for a book called, "The First $100 Million". Its nothing BUT book titles. Bring your wallet.

    I forgot who originally said this, It came from an NLP book about modeling, but focus more on your questions and less on your answers. That works universally. OP Danielle has a point, there is only so much we can do with guesswork.

    Best,

      Ross,

      That big fella called Antony Robbins said, "Better questions lead to better answers".

      Was that what you were trying to come up with?

      Best,
      Ewen

    I do small freelance jobs for local businesses. Social media, graphic design, web design and some marketing. All very small jobs. I recently was introduced to a guy who is a public speaker, author, has his own podcast and online store that generates sales of $550k and wants to double that up to $1.1m. Where would you start with a job like this?

    My website is only a month old, but Google has indexed the webpage I am checking the SERP position for. Here's the thing. I have an EMD and when I type the EMD keywords into Google, none of my webpages show up anywhere (I searched for it all the way to the last page which is page 34), but my Facebook, Google Plus, and YouTube pages all show up around pages 9 and 10! I haven't built any links back to these pages, but I did build a few no-follow comment links (URL links only) and paid for 3 directory links on pages with a PA of 35 to 50. Can someone please explain why my social pages would show up but not any of my webpages.
