I lied. I said a “free trick” in the headline but I’ll actually be showing you two. So let’s just make that plural and do a little happy dance together.

Why is making sure that your headlines are “right” important? Good question. Headlines are what captivate your audiences. Headlines have 2 seconds to convince someone within your target audience to actually read or use their beloved time and spend it on your blog article, podcast, or website. Your headline is the difference between more sales and less sales, more views or less views.
Putting together a powerful, enticing headline can be tricky. And honestly, some of us can get a little lazy in this department and throw something together without any reasoning behind the wording. I like free tools and I like anything to do with analyzing, so I’m going to show you two free tools that I use to analyze my blog post headlines.
ONE | Click here to go to: https://headlines.sharethrough.com
I like this because it shows your strengths as well as suggestions side by side. Some of the suggestions (like 60%+ of them) I ignore. But sometimes it is nice to get those suggestions that may not have even crossed your mind but in the end will help your headline convert better.
Sure, I guess I’ll take a mid-C.
TWO | Click here to go to: coschedule.com/headline-analyzer
This is my favorite one. Simply paste your headline in the box, click the blue “analyze now” button, and let coschedule.com work some magic. This site spits out a score, a grade, and different analytics that explain what is good and bad about that specific headline.
You have to go check this out. Like now. Make this part of your content creation checklist and analyze every headline you are putting out there! It truly is that important.
