Make it stick out. Headlines that work are:
- short, bold (or all caps) and totally weird (like "*[5MINRICHES]*")..
- a question, plus urgency (like "You know how to get MAD traffic? Inside now, this offer will only last 15 minutes! ..14, ..13, ..")
- an *irresistible* offer (like this thread's title)
Of course you'll have to deliver the promised things.. Which i didn't - i hope you forgive me. But you can always harass me on icq (16102829-SIX) and we can like brainstorm and such.
But those are attention-grabbers.
Well, that's just what i wanted to share, since i had great success with those kinds of headlines.. be it on boards, classified ads or social bm sites.
