You spend hours writing exceptionally good content, but how much time do you spend focusing on crafting the perfect headline? Chances are not enough time.
Why? Because 8 out of 10 people will read your headline, but only 2 out of 10 people will read the rest of your post. By crafting a magnetic headline, you’ll increase the number of people that will actually read your content.
Now that you know headlines are important, you’re probably wondering what makes a good one and how to write one, right? Well, today is your lucky day because I’ve created an infographic that will teach you just that.

The difference between creating a great headline and a mediocre one is huge. When I write a blog post, I typically know if it will be a hit based on the headline. And sadly, even if the content sucks, I know the post will still do well because of the headline.
On average, when I write a great headline, I generate 6,591 more visitors the day I publish the post. I also generate 292 more tweets and 137 more Facebook shares.
If you really want to hit a home run with your blog posts, spend as much time crafting the headline as you do writing the post.
So, based on the infographic, what do you think would be a better title for this blog post?
