Practical Article Marketing Tips – 7 Ways to Strengthen Your Article Title to Attract More Prospects

Does your article title attract new prospects to your article? Here are 7 strategies for creating a more compelling article title to jump start your Article Marketing.

1) Front load your keywords – The title of this article could have easily been “7 Ways to Strengthen Your Article Title to Attract More Prospects” and it would not have been a bad title.

Except on the Internet, that is.

2) Have fun with it – Look, this is not English class. Writing for the web is different than any other kind of writing. You are allowed to have fun.

  • Jeff, I have taken some of your courses and this sticks in my mind the most. I now always figure out how to start my article titles with my keywords. when I look at other articles on my topic and they start with…”If you want to”.. or “find out how to” I think now how dumb is that. LOL That Jeff for sharing your knowledge.

    Great info Jeff. I thought there was a limit on the number of characters in the title of an article posted at Ezine articles. Please clarify.

  • Awesome, as always, Jeff. I didn’t know that about the first 4 words and the last word or the parentheses. everything you tell us works. Duh. 🙂
    Thank you so much.

    Ali – I have often said that of the many people I have learned from on the ‘Net, there are 3 who everything they suggest works – they are listed in the order in which I met them:

    Tom Antion
    Alex Mandossian
    Kevin Nations

    For you to include me in your list means a great deal – Thanks!

  • Jeff, thanks for your easy-to-follow tips for writing article titles that get our articles opened. Writing for people AND the Web IS key. What’s one without the other? And I so resonate with “Have fun with it!” Fun is a prerequisite to excellence. Play is the behavior of enlightenment.
