Re: What Causes Thunder Thighs?


You May Already Be Thinking…
What does “What Causes Thunder Thighs?” have to do with marketing?

We’re talking about Attention Grabbing Headlines!

I just walked in the living room and turned on the TV set. The show “The Doctors” was on. The first thing I saw on the screen was a question: “What Causes Thunder Thighs?”

The First Thing That Came to Mind…
What a great headline!  Anyone  that wants to know, “What Causes Thunder Thighs” is going to tune in, read, and or listen to whatever they have to say.

Headlines are critical to your adcopy. I’ve heard only 8 out of 10 actually read the entire headline. That’s just the headline!

Your headline has to be able to grab the readers attention in such a way that it forces them to want to read the rest of your message.

One of the keys to writing a good headline is, knowing your market so well, that you know what they’re thinking and looking for. You know their hot buttons.

Consider This…
Go to the magazine rack in your local Barns & Noble book store. Pick up any magazine that ”YOU” are interested in reading. You will immediately start scanning the cover. What are you looking for?

You are searching for Headlines that ”YOU” can relate to right now!

Headlines are everything. The next time you pick a magazine, look at the cover for a minute. Then decide what article you want to read.

But before you read that article, think about “WHY” you selected that article.

What is it about that headline that made you say “YES”, I want to read more. Was it the copy? Did the color of the headline influence you? What part of you did it touch? Is it solving a problem for you? Will it make you feel better, faster and quicker?    

On that note…
You’ll never believe what I’m going to write about tomorrow!

Happy Headlines,
Robby LeBlanc
