  1. Wow Fabrizio,

    This is a keeper! It is so kind of you to do all this work for us. I always get stuck on headlines. Although I want to keep it congruent with my content, they are not sexy ... quite boring sometimes.

    I'm keeping this list as a reference for my next blog. You came up with wonderful topics and I like the way you segmented them.

    Thanks so much!

    -Donna

    1. Hi Donna, thanks and you're most welcome. I'll admit there have been times when I've struggled to come up with some cool headlines. But practice makes perfect I think.

      I'm glad you enjoyed this list, yes please do bookmark this for the future, I'll be adding more as and when I do some more split testing and experimenting.

      Have a great rest of the week Donna, great to see you here again 🙂 - Fabrizio

  2. Hey Fabrizio,

    Great list of suggestions here. I really like number 13 under the tutorials. Sometimes we feel limited and it's great to know that there are other options and this headline will perk up our attention.

    Thanks for the list! Have a good one!

  3. Hi Fabrizio

    What a brilliant series of lists you've got here. I'm forever dreaming up new headline ideas - it's a hobby of mine. But your list makes it so much easier, especially if our mind is blank and we've lost our inspirational spark.

    This is definitely a fab reference page. I've added it to my bookmarks and shared the post

    Kim

    1. Ah Kim thanks a bunch for commenting and sharing this one mate. Glad you've bookmarked it for the future. And I can totally relate to hitting a blank mind at times when thinking of some creative headline titles. This list will certainly grow. Have a great weekend buddy.

  4. Hi Fabrizio,

    First time here 🙂

    Awesome list you've put together.
    I'll admit I don't focus much on titles. This is so helpful.

    I like to keep things simple, and this will be a huge asset not only to me, but others as well.

    Great post here. Glad I found it. Pinning and sharing.

    1. Hi Dana, great to have you here and welcome to the blog. I'm so glad the post made an impact and you enjoyed the titles here.

      I must admit there was a time when I didn't pay much attention to the headline. It wasn't until I read a couple of eye-opening case studies about how much of an impact headlines can create. So I started working on my own, improving existing titles as well as doing split testing.

      I'm now obsessed with creating better headlines for not just my blog posts, but also landing pages, email newsletters etc.

      Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment Dana. Hope to see you here again soon.

  5. Hi Fabrizio,

    Great list you've put up here, I really like "The Difinitive Guide-----".

    I have seen it effectively used and very often by Neil Patel and I think is really working for his type of blog post and niche.

    The case study headline formula is my second favorite, though this type of headline formula is best used when there is actually an experience to share with your audience, not just mere opinion or perceptive.

    Thanks for sharing, I'll be bookmaking this page for feature reference.

    1. Hi Adeshokan, thanks, yes I've seen this title used many times too. In fact I used it a few years back with an eBook called "the definitive guide to smarter blogging" which is now obsolete. But the book was a popular one. There is a lot of authority weighed into the word "definitive", and if it's going to be used in a post title, it's really got to deliver right?

      Have a great rest of the week mate, thanks again for dropping by.

  6. What an absolutely awesome real world checklist of explosive, eye catching headline templates,
    you have provided for free Fabrizio!

    Man, this could have just as easily been, either a free seven day "how to" write results generating headlines video course.

    Or a free lead generating ebook giveaway!

    Or truth told, you could have just as easily given away the first 15 proven templates and charged us for the rest and shared them in a paid webinar, and they would be worth every penny!

    I'm definitely bookmarking this page and sharing it across my various social media sites too!Thanks!

    1. Hey Mark, thanks so much for stopping by. Wow, so many ideas there you've got my head exploding with possibilities now, thanks for that. You know what, I may just keep some of your suggestions for the next thing I'm working on. Thank you!

      Thanks for sharing this too, have an awesome week ahead Mark 🙂

  7. You're most definitely man! Because I'm telling,
    this one blog post, is a paid webinar series, you could easily
    record and charge us for!

    And it would definitely be well worth it!because there is literally a ton of extremely
    practical and proven power headline an sub headline generating templates!

    That absolutely, positively will never ever go out of style!

    Twenty five years from now and beyond, someone will easily be able to tweak
    some of your awesome headline templates and definitely have some sort
    of proven winner! Thanks man!

    I can't wait to see what yo come up with next!LOL!

  8. Hi Fabrizio

    This post recalled me an ebooklet of a famous blogger about creating killer headlines and now I found this one has same level of value and much more to improve headlines and get notice by all.

    I wonder if you also have compiled it in a PDF with an offer for email subscription. I am sure readers would welcome your offer and you would get a good number of new subscribers.

    Creating a simple and powerful headline is the heck of the task. If we keep it simple it gets weaker and in an effort to make it stronger it gets a little complicated.

    The way you suggested that much examples is awesome and one can get them for free for creating the headlines of his next 100 blog posts if he follow a strategy to adopt each one of them.

    Many thanks for sharing this precious resource.
