When using pictures, videos, and links in your "Grab", make sure their funny, unusual, or unique.  Aim for "going viral".  Going viral mean other people will pick-up your material and spread it across the web for you.  Sounds nice -- right.  Going viral is not the easiest thing to do, but it is possible.  Do you remember the "Will It Blend" videos.  People were emailing, linking and sharing those videos for weeks.

      This is a great list of words. I've always been afraid to use grab words because I was afraid that I would sound too pitchy. But when I look at my own consumer habits, I realize that I respond to these words myself, unconsciously, so why wouldn't I want to use them in my own marketing materials. Great Hub. Book marking this list for future reference!
