Ultimate List of Blog Heading Templates & Titles for Blogging

Posted on

Headlines

Below I have collected a huge list of great blog heading templates and titles for blogging. You can use these templates to customise your blog title and is a great resource if you ever have writers block.

I have compiled them onto one page to make for easy printing or viewing rather than going to separate pages which I found so annoying. I no way claim to have made these headlines and I have showed the source of each of the headings respectively.

How To Write Good Headlines

  • Write in the present tense. Use active verbs.
  • Put the key words of the story in the main head.
  • Get the most important story element in the headline. Headlines should tell readers what happened and why the news is important to readers.
  • Avoid puns (or use them to your advantage)
  • Be accurate.
  • Be interesting and inviting. Headlines should be an advertisement for the story, but they should never be so cute that they fail to instantly tell the news.
  • Be creative. Headlines can and should creatively convey a mood or emotion when appropriate, but they must always tell the news in clear and direct fashion.
  • Don’t pirate the lead of the story or give away the ending. Stealing the lead means repeating it almost verbatim. You do want to make sure the headline matches the tone of the story.
  • Rarely (almost never) use short, verb-less labels as main heads for news stories. They fail to tell the news.
  • Avoid headlinese. Make headlines conversational.

Example:

6) Breaking News:

A “Breaking News:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because breaking news usually happens when it’s really important and can’t wait until the normal news show time. It’s usually something major like severe weather, a terrorist attack, war footage, etc. It makes people stop what they’re doing and take notice.

Example:

Breaking News! Scientist Finds Breakthrough Weight Loss Formula!

Example:

9) Finally:

A “Finally:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because usually people will buy any number of similar products before they get the exact benefit they want. So, when we find that perfect product we are likely to say or think:.FINALLY!!!

Example:

Finally! An Acne Cream That Actually Does What It Says!

10):Guaranteed

A “:Guaranteed” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because it tells your prospects there is no harm in reading the rest of my ad and there’s no risk.

Example:

10,000 Web Site Visitors In One Month:Guaranteed!

11) Time Sensitive:

Example:

The Real Truth About MLM Compensation Plans!

13) Free Bonuses:

14) Which Of:

The “Which Of:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because it will give them a choice. People like to have choices, because it gives them freedom and control. Once they choose, they will want to read your ad to see the results of their choice.

Example:

15) Last Chance:

The “Last Chance:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people usually pay more attention to their last chance than their first chance to buy something. Everyone hates to lose something. It will usually help sell to people that procrastinate about buying. Now or never is a strong motivator.

Example:

Last Chance To Save 50% Off This Stunning Ring

16) Take Advantage:

Example:

10 Reasons To Start Your Own, Profitable Website!

Also feel free to check out these website templates.

19) Now You Can:

The “Now You Can..” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people usually don’t have their desired benefit yet if they are even considering reading your ad. Now they can learn how to get that benefit from reading the rest of your ad

Example:

Now You Can Afford That In-Ground Pool!

20) Proven:

The “Proven:” headline will grab your prospects attention because people want products that they know are proven to get their desired benefit. Would you want a product that’s UN-proven?

Example:

A Skin Cream That’s Proven To Work!

21) Are You Still:

The “Are You Still:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people will wonder if they are still getting the most benefit with an older product. It’s also a question that they will mentally have to answer then compare to the newer product you are offering.

Example:

Are You Still Using That Slow, Old Typewriter?

22) Never Seen Before:

The “Never Seen Before:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people usually ignore ads. They think they have seen everything. If your product has truly never been seen before they will want to stop and read about it. NEW is very enticing!

Example:

Never Seen Before! Tires That Never Go Flat!

23) Imagine:

The “Imagine:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because people like to leave there own reality. Why do you think TV, movies, video games, music, drugs, alcohol, etc. are so popular? Give them one or more of their desired benefits to imagine.

Example:

Imagine Losing 20 Pounds In 14 Days!

24) They Laughed:

The “They Laughed:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because everyone has suffered being laughed at or minimized at least once. So your prospects can relate to it. They won’t be afraid to get their desired benefit since you proved the people that laughed at you were wrong.

Example:

They Laughed At Me When I Bought That Run-Down House Until I Sold It And Made $20,000 Profit

25) How I:

The “How I:” headline will grab your prospect’s attention because it’s not only showing them to how to get their desired benefit but you, the “I”, are telling them, not some big corporation. It is more personal and will draw your prospect into your ad copy. The little guy wins!

Example:

How I Made $36,890 In One Week!

26) Thousands Have:

The “Thousands Have..” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because if thousands of people have bought your product then it must be good. They can’t go wrong. Of course you don’t want to lie if thousands haven’t bought your product. You may also want to use a specific number of people so it sounds more believable.

Example:

3,734 People Have Bought Our Tax Software

27) Do You:

The “Do You:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because it’s asking them (you) a question. People have been taught their whole life to answer questions. It’s almost like a teacher calling out your name in school. It also draws out a yes or no answer. Depending on your question, getting them to answer will help get them interested.

Example:

Do You Want To Be In Debt For The Rest Of Your Life?

28) :Mistake:

The “:Mistake:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because people don’t want to make costly mistakes that could stop them from getting their desired benefit. People also don’t want to experience the feeling of being dumb or stupid. Your ‘new’ way is the ‘right’ way.

Example:

Don’t Make The Same Tax Mistakes That Cost Me $34,568!

29) I’m So Mad:

The “I’m So Mad:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because people want to know what caused you to have that particular emotion, and then tell them about it. Of course you could use just about any emotion you want such as happy, excited, sad, depressed, etc. Just not normal.

Example:

I’m So Mad About Being Scammed Again!

The “I Dare You:” headline grabs yours prospect’s attention because people consider a dare a challenge. People will like to prove you wrong but they will have to read the rest of your ad and buy your product in order to do it.

It might even appear you are not going to offer them the product unless they are qualified, or fulfill some conditions. Those terms could be noted in the text below. They may worry that you could actually turn their purchase down.

Example:

$2000 Diamond Ring For Only $299:If You Qualify!

68) Introducing:

The “Introducing:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because most people see “Introducing” attached to something or someone that they are not familiar with, but that’s still important to their benefit. You are doing them a favor by showing them something new.

Example:

You’re Invited To Experience The Business Opportunity Of A Lifetime!

Example:

Tried And Tested Diet That Allows You To Lose Up To 10 Pounds Per Week!

73) Breakthrough:

The “Breakthrough:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because people are always looking for that one breakthrough that will solve their problems or give them their desired benefit. They want to see success where other similar products have failed in the past.

Example:

A Bug Spray That’s Safe To Use Around Children!

76) Serious Inquiries Only:

The “Serious Inquiries Only:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because you are actually limiting those that can order based upon eligibility. A business-like approach tells people it is direct and trust-worthy.

Example:

77) Used By:

The “Used By:” headline grabs your prospect’s attention because you actually use some of your famous and/or well-known clients in your headline! It gives credibly to your entire headline and offer.

Example:

Our Famous, Internet Marketing Course Has Been Used By (some of your famous/respectable clients)

78) Free Trial/Sample
