Can Anyone Suggest A Better Headline?

31 replies
Hey guys, I recently set up my site and have been having a bit of a bad reaction from the traffic, I know I need a bit or redesign, but do any of you guys over here in the copywriting section reckon you can outdo my headline? Probably not too tricky for you guys - but I spent ages and feel as though it is still only mediocre! Thanks for any help .

    Unless he means the title for this thread, to which I suggest:

    "Are you the master copywriter who can beat this headline?"

    or

    "Hey, you there! Fix this thread title and win 1000 internets"




    @Freddie Please share the URL or at least post the headline so we can help.

    Maybe the headline is "Do You Think You Need ESP?"

      I like your headline, OP. It makes you think. Very philosophical of you. :p

      My suggestion is "My headline is better than your headline, nyah nyah!"

    How about: "They laughed when I sat down at the keyboard...but then I begin to type awesome headlines."

    Sorry. It's late in the afternoon

      Here's one quick suggestion, based on the central concept of the rare forgotten manuscript found in the out-of-the-way shop, as well as a play on the forbidden city of China:

      Secret Chinese Cooking Secrets Revealed
      'Forgotten book' shows how to cook delicious Chinese meals the easy way!

      You didn't ask for copy review, so I'll keep this part brief. In my opinion, the copy of the sales page itself does need some substantial editing, reorganization, and better formatting (making use of gutters, block quotes, bullet points, better fonts, etc.). Some testimonials would also be a good addition. The price point might need a little reconsideration, too, given that it is an e-book. Is it formatted so that it is easy to print out specific recipes to use in the kitchen? If so, you might want to mention that too.

    Freddie, sorry to say pal, but the headline is NOT your problem.

    Freddie, your head line is pretty good, it caught my attention...they rest of the sales letter needs some work. Look at the following example sales letters: optimizepress and profitstheme, I know they are out of you niche, but you want to add similar stuff to you site.

    Why this headline?

    First of all, like all money grabbing ads, it's about the reader.

    The reader is a woman
    She wants a man
    She knows the way to a man's heart is through his stomach
    She reads Cosmopolitan

    We use a Cosmo style cover headline

    All this comes from knowing just 1 thing...

    KNOW THY BEST CUSTOMER!

    Best,
    Ewen

    P.S.
    This is also an example of the hidden benefit, as legendry copywriter and marketer
    Ted Nicholas calls it.

    It also demonstrates what you are really selling.
    Gary Bencivenga talks about this in one of his bullets.

    The old saying "dont't sell the drill, sell the hole"
    is also demonstrated here.
