How Bad Does This Headline Suck

How You Can Freeze Your Car Insurance Rates From Ever Going Up Again

From The Agent Who Brought You Huge Savings....Rate Protection Guarantee


We have access to a brand new "patented" endorsement that will allow clients to "lock in" their auto insurance rates(with a few limitations) and never again be subjected to a rate increase. Now I have to come up with a headline that will kick ass

    This thing looks like it came from the Department of Redundancy Department. How about, "Freeze your auto insurance rates... Forever"

        And you just got 25% of the business you could be getting with a better headline. Because if my insurance company is kicking my wallet's ass in March, I'm looking for an up-to-date solution now, not in December.

        Well, it is a negative presupposition, isn't it? Good point.
        Is that to suggest that a headline with a negative presupposition will always undersell a headline without it?

          Of course it's not suitable for year-round use. It's to use now... during winter... in frigid Northern PA... where it's currently colder than a witch's tit in a brass brassiere.

          No, I wasn't thinking of it that way. Just pointing it out.

          Woah!

          What brought that on?

          Having said that, I'd go with Bruce's suggestion, too: It's short and to the point.

            Maybe I jumped the gun... I thought the suggested headline was good as well....my BS radar might be a little off kilter today...thought I smelled a terd when I see a post with no merit other than simply "stroking"
            My bad


            I actually liked Mal's "with" the minor revision
            Lock In Your Auto Insurance Rates

            never again suffer with a rate increase

            Awesome to be able to get this kind of advice from experts

              nah - "suffer" and "subjected to" are entirely different beasts. I stand by the original.

            Haha.

            Yeah Dan, do that, and split test against Mal's.

            Dan. He wasn't ass kissing. He was pointing you in the right direction.

            Marc

            PS. "Never again suffer a rate increase." I like it.

          I'm so glad I took the time to single out the most productive suggestion for you.

          Look below. I'm not selling anything. I'm not linked to a website. I genuinely like helping people who seem polite and serious about delivering value tweak their copy so it's more effective.

          There's some good advice on this forum. There's also some terrible advice that will cost you a lot of time and money if you follow it.

          You know what usually gets the most attention and response? The bad advice.

          Good advice gets ignored, lost in the mix, or goes unappreciated.

          Or, bizarrely, is met with an insult.

          Well, that's okay by me. Some people can't be helped.

          I think I'm done here. Too many clowns.

      I like this one, can't "suffer" replace your "be subjected to" though?
