The Importance of Headline Testing in Your Internet Marketing Campaign
Written by Carmen
On the internet, content is truly king. There is no shortage of content about every topic under the sun available on the Internet. However, this poses a challenge for new era marketers. How does one make sure that their business, product, or service gets recognized in the crowd? This is the never ending challenge of Internet marketing. To add to this, attention spans are on the decrease and it is getting increasingly difficult to capture and retain someone’s attention for a long time over the internet. This is where a well thought out headline comes into play when placing articles on a website. Some website owners choose to do this themselves while others choose to let an experienced and professional Internet marketing company provide the content for a website.
How important is a headline anyway?
Internet marketing campaigns depend a lot on creating visibility and awareness with the help of write ups, blurbs, product descriptions, and so on. However, the best way to get a person to read these in the first place is to have a good headline for the content. On the internet, all one has is a few seconds to capture of a website visitor. When the visitor is one that has an interest in buying, there may be a little more time.
Testing the headline with Internet marketing services
Testing the headline to see the effectiveness of it will be important to success. This can be done with A/B testing. Any write up or other marketing communications should all be geared to get the potential customer’s attention long enough to convince them that your product or service it the one that they should by. Use of words such ‘Truly’, ‘Absolutely’ and ‘really’ have a natural edge in capturing the reader’s attention. The tone of the headline is equally important. Whether the tone is informal, humorous, or business like depends on the kind of brand and the tone of the write up or article. This is crucial because the wrong tone would end up meaning that the communication will end up reaching the wrong target audience and doesn’t remain relevant any more.
Ensuring relevancy of a headline in Internet marketing
To ensuring relevancy is to run a simple Google search and looking at the top results. What are they conveying? Does it match with what we have on our hands? Do you need to revise it? Asking these questions is the first step towards having a headline and content that is relevant to your target audience (those who want to buy what you are selling).
Testing headlines and evaluating the visitors reaction to the headline in crucial and is the real acid test. If it gets the reaction the marketer is looking for, the headline can be carried forward. Otherwise, it needs to be revised or replaced for better results.
