How to Create an Eye-catching Title!

Updated on July 3, 2012

As important as it is to write a great article for others to read, it is just as important to create an eyecatching tittle to draw your audience in. Many articles are well-written and interesting, but they do not get nearly enough attention as they should, since the tittle does not scream: Read me!

Many writers, understand the importance of tittles for their articles, which is why many spend several minutes, if not hours thinking of what to name their articles. Writing tittles is not hard, it's just words making a small sentence to tell the audience the jist of what the article is all about. However, creating a great, eye popping and interesting tittle is a bit more work, because the tittle grabs the audience, and even if the article itself is not very good, the audience will be captured, and they will want to read the article.

Many great writers that have made a name for themselves in this business, have managed to get thousands of views. Many new freelance writers have often wondered and many have asked me if I get the same thing. My answer is Yes, but I do have a lot of complaints because people seem to like my work, but they do not like that because of the way I write, they do not think I take my job very seriously.

Here's the thing: there are many ways to make money as a freelance writer. One of them is to write great articles for websites and get paid for the amount of views. Seems too easy! But, it can happen. The article itself may not be very good, but if the writer creates a great eye popping and catching tittle, they can double if not triple their views within the first week that they write!

Once again, this sounds too easy. Well, here's a way to make it a bit harder. Every tittle needs to grab the attention of ANY writer. Whether the writer is a professional, or a new freelance writer, it needs to scream: read me! The only way to create an eye-catching tittle is to think the way that others writers think. To make it simpler, if you are not interested in your own writing, chances are that others wont be either.

If the tittle itself makes you think, then that's an eye-catching title!

Many of the articles that I write, I get my inspiration from other writers. Sometimes I read smaller articles or news pieces online, and I have questions that have not been answered by the articles itself. So I make those questions into tittles and write them in a way that would answer the questions of others!

A great tittle is nothing but a piece of information that opens the door to even more information. This is why every article tittle should be filled with plenty of information, but still leave the reader wanting to know more about the article.

I hope this helps many of the eager writers out there! Have fun writing!

      Titles are very important and probably one of my favorite parts of writing. I used to work on a Newspaper so we used to spend lots of times crafting the perfect title for each article. Now, I find it fun!
