    Sinisterlex, I have been going through your posts and what I would to ask is the emotion aspect of the headlines.
    I understand the desire part but what is this emotion?
    Can you show me an example of emotion

    Imagine you had lung cancer and the doctor told you that you had to stop smoking today or you would die. At first you ignore his suggestion because everyone is going to die anyway, or so we are told. You don't feel the real pain yet.

    But then he says, if you don't stop smoking today, you're going to die next week. Suddenly you feel the pain. You feel the pain of how fast your life will end, and even worse, what that means for your friends and family who you'll be leaving behind. You feel their sadness. You imagine them crying over your body. Your child is heartbroken and your wife is left in shambles and all because you weren't willing to give up something as simple as smoking. How would that make you feel?

    So what problem does your product solve? What happens if your customer doesn't solve that problem? What is the deep pain they will experience if they go on living life like they are right now without at least reading on to find out more information?

    That pain is the emotion you are looking for.

    Vitality Secret

    As you know, potassium is crucial to heart function and
    plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction.
    Benson's Bananas, unlike competitor brands, have been scientifically shown
    to contain 67% higher potassium levels on average. This is a revelation.
    Our mobility depends entirely on easy muscular function. Think about it...
    With the high amounts of potassium hidden within Benson's Bananas, you will
    go about your day with a SECRET WEAPON. Colleagues will wonder
    just how you look so energized.

    They Taste Terrific

    "But what of the taste?" You ask.
    My friend, it is known the best tasting bananas do indeed come from Costa Rica.
    That is precisely the reason why we grow our tremendous trees there.
    No where else would be as beneficial to the flavour.
    Your bananas are softly cacooned in 76.5F (25C) weather all year round,
    lovingly preparing them in the best possible way.
    It is a benediction in fact.

    They are going fast! And rightly so!
    Buy Benson's Bananas now.

    I think I wrote a sales letter by mistake. Holy sh*t this is fun. Time for a banana.

    Silence on Demand

    Do you ever need to drown out background noise so you can relax? Imagine just flicking a switch to activate the power of QuietPoint noise-cancellation technology. Active Mode reduces environmental noise by up to 90%. With your new headphones' easy-access switch, you can do just that.

    Works With or Without a Battery

    Long flight? Don't worry about running out of battery. You won't feel the disappointment of
    dead headphones because in Passive Mode you will experience the same auditory high fidelity sound as
    you did in Active Mode.

    Price

    You know that we don't compromise on the quality of our headphones. We want your ears to be satisfied. So how are our prices so low? Well, unlike our competitors we care about the customer and pass on the
    savings we make through efficient production methods to YOU.

    Speaking of caring...

    Did you know that wired headphones are better for your health? It's true, we are cheaper than
    our competitors because we don't use wireless technology. This means you are safe with us as
    no electromagnetic frequencies will be bombarding your brain unlike our greedy competitors.

    What do they do?!

    Yes! Our rivals will sink to any level, using any new technology they can grab with their unscrupulous, dirty hands to charge a massive premium and eschew the health concerns of the customer.
    Here at Audio-Technica, it is not so. We care about treating your ears, we care about being upfront, and most of all we care about YOU.

    Love 'em. Maybe the last one could be improved. If it's obviously a pull-up bar I'm less likely to read, as opposed to "Forge Your Back into Iron with This SECRET WEAPON!" Then you can mention the work is daily in the actual post and not the headline. People only want to know if they "Make Thousands, DAILY!" and not working daily. ;)

    Got my first hire on Upwork! $5 for one hour writing about betting exchanges, 4000 characters. Did 5500 and very high quality info, hope he will write some great feedback.

    Headline 1
    The word "About" is too formal for most audiences and sort of strips the emotion. Who is this for? Men? Women? How old? "Sexy Confident" is good, but it's not clear to me who this is for, so I can't picture myself as "sexy confident" because I don't have any context for that image.

    Headline 2
    This headline might make sense as long as you put an image in the background of what it's about. By itself it's very vague, but if the target audience already knows why they're on your site, then it's no problem. The word "Dose" falls a little flat for emotional appeal. I don't know much about mushrooms, but I don't associate the word "dose" with "shroom" so it would probably be more impactful if you used something like "Heaven in a Cap" since mushrooms have caps and if I'm not mistaken, that's the part you eat.

    Headline 3
    This headline doesn't make sense to me. This shouldn't be a headline, it's more like a call to action that should come later in the text. I do like that the targeting is a little more clear. This is for athletes who want to improve performance. The word "tool" doesn't make sense for the audience because athletes don't usually use tools. They use "equipment" or "gear" but usually not tools.

    A couple of questions:
    • What is the biggest most common problem the foam roller solves?
    • How do you use a foam roller?
    • How specifically does it help improve athletic performance?
    • What kind of athletes should use it?

    Is it for athletes with sore backs? Does it relieve aching muscles? This headline should address the actual problem so they understand how it helps them "win." Make sense?

    Headline 4
    This one is good. I like where you're going with it. If the audience knows they're on a website that has to do with NLP, then this one makes sense. :)

    Headline 5
    The interesting thing about pull up bars is they sort of give you a total body work out. Not just back, but shoulders, chest, abs etc. It might be worth mentioning a total body workout in the headline. I like how you mention walking out of the room since these bars usually hang above the door. That creates a good picture in the mind.

    Flask
    BPA Free and no toxicity are good benefits. The word "NEW!" doesn't make sense unless I'm already super familiar with the flask brand. I don't regularly buy flasks, so that probably wouldn't be the case. Most flasks are smooth to the touch, so this doesn't highlight anything that would make me want to learn more. Where's the curiosity element? Why should I care about this flask at all? There's 10,000 BPA free flasks to choose from on Amazon.

    Banana
    This suffers the same challenges as the flask. It basically says the same thing as every other banana brand. If I were going to write headlines about a banana I'd capitalize on the Costa Rica part and describe more about that. It needs more sensory detail like, "100% Organic Hand Plucked Bananas from the Shores of Costa Rica" or something like that. You could also describe other elements of Costa Rica such as blue skies or the smell of salt water etc.

    PUA Course
    Hmm, to me this headline isn't terrible, but right now it feels more like something I'd see on a porn site ad. Porn sites always have those little ads off to the right that try to get you to click on them and they use very similar headlines. For a PUA Course you need something less direct and more secretive. The whole idea of PUA centers around seduction, which is subtle and sneaky and persuasive and charming and charismatic and suave. All of these are words which define part of the worldview for the target market. This is how they want to see their self, and that's why they buy into a course like this.

    Camera
    This one isn't too bad. You should strengthen the idea of never zooming again. Why is zooming a problem in the first place? What makes zooming so bad that they would need a new camera? When you answer that you'll have a much stronger headline.

    Book
    I'll assume this is a business book since we're on a business website. "KILL your competitors" doesn't tell me much. It doesn't cause me to wonder if the book is for me, so I wouldn't care, but it might be appealing to the right person. It doesn't define anything about me or a feature I might want since I don't care about competitors at all. It does play on a problem, which is having competitors, but there's nothing to cause me to STOP and give it my attention. That said, it might be okay if you get it in front of people who care about competing!

    Thanks Lex. OK, so we have to make them STOP and really think about which attention grabbing words we use otherwise they will pass by the headline or worse "NEW!" literally gives them a reason NOT to open it because we're bombarded with so much information and need a quick way to filter useless stuff out... stuff which is NEEEW! We have to make sure not to give them a single reason to pass by... gotta appeal more to their senses and their sense of self to spike their curiosity. Also make sure not to list benefits which aren't unique.

    So with the camera product the major benefit would be time saving. Obvious, but I missed it before. Make sure the customer knows the benefit:
    At Last! Texa-Pixel Camera Means You Capture Shots INSTANTLY. No Time-Wasting Zoom-In Necessary. Your Perfect Photos in Obscenely High Resolution: Just Crop Later! Clarity Preserved! Never Miss a Shot Again!

    Is there an upper bound for headline length?

    For the book I see what you mean: the audience has to be called out or given an in-joke so they know it is for them and not just generic. It's inspired by "Kill Phil" and "Kill Everyone," which are a couple of poker books, the key being that Phil Helmuth is famous, and whilst good, regarded as exploitable. He has some funny moments blowing up on TV. So in those two words, assuming you're in the poker section of amazon or your bookstore, you recognise the joke and it instantly hooks you. You know this book is specifically for you. It also comes back to the emotion factor in that the title is schadenfreude and as we know from Cashvertising LF8, this taps into "winning, superiority." "Kill Phil" also plays off pop culture "Kill Bill." So much power in those two words. It's as if the viewer says "Yeah, I get those jokes, I'm part of the in-crowd." and feels good about buying the book. I love this sh*t.

    Had to get on a video chat with an Upwork staff member. They'd locked my account and I had to prove I was human since I had no previous jobs listed on my profile. I slipped through the matrix system, muhaha.

    Thanks for the comprehensive reply! I'll try to improve them down below

    Headline 1

    When I had my short stint as a personal trainer, I tried to get anyone I can get haha. But I see your point, more targeted audience more sales.
    New Gym goers who have no idea about exercising:
    "Stop Mindlessly Exercising, Work With Me If You Want To See Results "
    "90% Of New Gym Members Quit After One Month. Is This You?"

    For Young Ladies Who Want To Be Sexy:
    "No, Cardio Won't Give You Lady Gaga's Butt. Do This For That Sexy Body"

    For Men Looking To Get Big:
    "Those Bicep Curls Won't Do Shit. Grow Like Hulk NOW!"

    Headline 2

    Heaven In A Cap sounds way better although if I'm being an autistic nerd I would say that you eat the whole thing and lots of it lol.

    "Explore Inner Worlds"
    "Imagine Dreaming Awake"

    Headline 3

    "Injuries Prevent High-Level Performance. The Foam Roller Will Make You A Superior Athlete!"
    "Roll Out Your Muscle Knots And Perform Better!"
    "MMA Fighters Who Are Worse For Wear: Get This Gear To Fight On!"

    Am I Being Too Vague With These Headlines? Thanks Again For The Inpu!

    Day 3


    Glass Jug


    “Be The Envy Of All The Housewives At Your Next Dinner Party!”


    Imagine serving your drinks in this homemade glass jug at your dinner party. The ladies will be asking you if IKEA is selling them. Just think about how they’ll tug on their husband’s sleeves to bring them to the shop!


    Get our glass jug before Nov 14 and you’ll get complimentary glasses. Our glass jugs are mouth-blown into a classic hourglass shape with a thick handle.



    CBD Oil


    “The “Miracle” Oil That Reduces Inflammation And Pain. Sleep Like A Baby After Consuming This!”


    Do you suffer from arthritis, sclerosis or fibromyalgia? Then you might think about getting CBD oil as a solution to your problems.


    Consider this. 1-2 drops in your mouth and your pain goes from a roar to a murmur. Imagine if you used to hate going up the steps but now it’s no problem. Wouldn’t you call that a miracle? If you or your loved ones are suffering in pain, then you must consider CBD Oil as an alternative painkiller.



    Book On Flat Earth


    “The Ancients Knew The Truth And Your Masters Are Hiding It From You! Read Why The Earth Was, Is And Always Will Be Flat!”



    Consider this. Everything told to you by scientists and politicians are lies to keep you down and in check. Would you dig deeper? If you answered yes, read on about why you need to get this book.


    I’m sure you agree that if facts support the claim, then it doesn't matter how outlandish it is. This book is filled with stone-cold facts that the earth is flat and I will share some of them with you soon. But first I want to warn you that the truth is scary and you should only buy this book if you really want to know the truth.



    Coding Bootcamp


    “Learn What Professional Web Developers Know And Get A Job In 8-Weeks!”


    APPLY NOW! Our classes are sought after worldwide and we have limited seatings! Only 35 people are accepted per class but if you apply before the semester starts you will get 15% off. Imagine working for a top technology company in two months of applying!


    The internet world is growing fast and the wizard programmers are the ones building it. They are applying their knowledge to shape the future and they are getting paid loads for it. You should know… this knowledge is not inaccessible or hard to understand. It’s widely available on the internet but there are way too much information and no clear road. How do you know what to learn to gain paying clients and turn recruiters’ heads? That’s where we come in…



    Indie Rock Album


    “The Sound Of The Skeptical Cynical Millennials”


    Get this album if you like: The Strokes, Mac Demarco, Tame Impala


    The young are tired and dissatisfied but have no idea what to do about it. This album captures the energy of the generation so well that it is bound to be loved by those in the know( the pizza guy who’s tired of being shit on, the waitress with painful heels, the stoned black sheep of the family). It is surprising that even with all this realism, they manage to sound so fun and catchy.


    Their music is, for lack of a better word, cool. Imagine going on a date with that girl you’ve crushed on for so long. Imagine playing this in the car as you drive back from the restaurant and her turning to you with a big smile on her face as she chirps,” Oh my god! I love this song!”.


    That’s Stalagmite helping you out. That’s the band pushing the night in the right direction. That’s the soundtrack of the two of you comforting each other, saying fuck you to the whole corrupted, fucked up world. Get this album now before everyone hums their tune. Ironically that is exactly what’s going to happen. Stalagmite is too damn cool to be down and out.

    Enjoying the guide and the community. Hope to receive more comments my way, I'm happy to learn from the best.

    I just watched a podcast about it while doing the guide haha. Don't really believe it but a martial artist I admired was talking about it...
    Got a job for $7 to write a 600 word article. If all goes well the client will be ordering 2 more articles.
    SinisterLex, is it a benefit to scoring a copywriting gig by getting job ratings outside of copywriting?

    Aha, well I don't want to derail this thread so all I'll say is check out Eric Dubay YouTube videos and you'll find the science checks out. Name me one time water doesn't seek it's own level and wraps around a rock in nature? It only happens in CG images and films like Star Wars (sorry SinisterLex, good films though). I wouldn't mention something like flat earth on this forum but I thought you were dropping an encoded message LOL.

    Anyway, congrats on your job buddy! Just got my first feedback. I'm delving into learning more about copywriting, brand voices etc so my second job will be some proper CW and not content creation. There's a few good videos on skillshare.com. I think any job's good for a first feedback, though, so you're social proofed for the bigger CW jobs?

    Just noticed this had 90,000 views so I marked it NOTABLE. (Note: I have not read the thread, but I'm guessing 90,000 views warrants some goodness.)

    For those of you who have consumed the 15 pages and think it should be GOLD, tag me.

    This is how I got started selling my websites. All the advice in this thread applies to any other industry (if you can read between the lines).

    Definitely should be Gold in my opinion.

    Your opinion holds some weight around here. GOLD it is.
