While writing a killer headline, subject line or tweet is certainly not child’s play, the art of critiquing this vital element of your promotion is now as easy as A,B,C with this memorable checklist:
Is it new? Intriguing? Customer-focused? Brand-appropriate? Engaging? Relevant?
Does it promise an immediate benefit? A saving? A solution? A short-cut?
Is it fresh? Insightful? Interesting? Clever? Unique? Contemporary?
Does it set the stage for your story? Promise a solution to a conflict or problem?
Does it convey a sense of urgency or necessity? Promise instant gratification or an immediate payoff?
Does it communicate its message instantly – and ideally do it in 8 words or less?
Is it well written, and true? Will it help your reader experience a moment of truth?
Naturally, a headline, subject line or tweet doesn’t have to do every single one of these things to be successful. But, the more it has built in, the more chance you have of engaging your audience and having your message read and remembered.
