What’s in a name? It’s the difference between hundreds of shares versus bare minimum traction, when it comes to articles on the internet.

A good title entices the audience to click for details.

A marketing tool in itself, a good title is crucial to the success of your content.

Your title:
– Should have necessary keywords
– Be concise
– Be controversial once in a while
– Can pose a question
– Can have emotional triggers
– Can have a list approach (3 ways to, 5 reasons why).

Use a mix of strategies and have a tracking system in place to understand which titles are performing well and which are not. That shall help you make more effective titles over time.
