    Yes indeed, headlines are the most important. In fact - If you want some good examples of proven headlines, you can always head over to amazon and check out the headlines of some top bestselling books. That would give you enough food for thought.

    Headlines are critically important... but at the same time, they are just the START. It
    needs to get people reading the next line... which in turn needs to compel them
    onto the next, and so on.

    Copywriters call it the "slippery slope" or the "greasy slide".

      Hi,

      Headlines refer to :
      -> Email Subject Line
      -> Page Header
      -> Title of An Article
      -> Article Sub-headers
      -> Press release Title
      -> Text-based Advertising

      This video is a good guide on how to create compelling headlines. It is from the latest research at MECLABS.
