Attention Grabbing Headline
How To Draw Your Visitors Into Your Product Description Using Proven Headlines Formulas That Have Stood The Test Of Time
At First Glance, They Seem Incredibly Simple
You know when you spot an amazing headline.
In just a few words you understand what the product is, how it benefits you, and why you should buy it.
Although it takes a lot more work than that (thinking work mostly).
Good Product Headline = Higher Conversion Rate
You already have a great product and a good number of traffic to your website but not enough people are buying your product.
If you only have pretty pictures on the side of your page, plus a “Add To Cart” button.
And a paragraph underneath that summarizes your product.
You’re losing customers and money.
The first step is to understand who they are…
Step #1 - Understanding The Customer
The thing is your product is just not going to appeal to “everyone”... even if you feel everyone could buy your product.
Writing a headline for “everyone” makes you vague.
And if you try to market it to everyone, you’ll wind up with far fewer sales than choosing a select group to direct your copy to.
So once you’ve defined your target market, you need to turn your attention toward making sure your headline addresses them directly.
10 Smart Market Diagnosis & Profiling Questions
In the book The Ultimate Sales Letter by the renowned Dan Kennedy, he teaches these 10 questions to help “get into the customer” which is a crucial step to writing a killer headline.
1. What keeps them awake at night, indigestion boiling up their esophagus, eyes open, staring at the ceiling?
2. What are they afraid of?
3. What are they angry about? Who are they angry at?
4. What are their top three daily frustrations?
5. What trends are occurring and will occur in their businesses or lives?
6. What do they secretly, ardently desire most?
7. Is there a built-in bias to the way they make decisions? (Example: engineers = exceptionally analytical)
8. Do they have their own language?
9. Who else is selling something similar to them, and how?
10. Who else has tried selling them something similar, and how has that effort failed?
Answer those questions and put yourself in their shoes.
Step #2 - Use Proven Headlines Formulas
There is one thing that all the best headlines have in common…

Often you’ll write headlines that you believe are great, and find it won’t affect your conversion rate.

How To Test Effectively
Setting up endless tests on your product descriptions is difficult because there are so many variables.
However you can easily test tons of headline variations in your advertising to see which one drives the most clicks and sales.
Then take what you've learned and apply it to your product page.
If you do this properly, I promise that most of the winning headlines won't be the ones you picked...
And that's why we always test what the market responds to (not what we "feel" works).
