Effective Headline to Grab Attention

What is the effective headline to grab attention?  There’s research on headlines or ad headlines, whichever is more effective between ads that precede and highlight the benefits first or ads that precede what to do.

The above research examines 10 types of ad titles for the same offer, ie do a survey, then it can be a prize. Researchers Dr. Flint McGlaughlin from MECLABS Institute. Of the 10 titles, the responses are different, although what is offered is the same. There are more fishing titles to follow his offer, which is to fill the survey.

Are the titles more interesting?

Titles that entice interest are titles that prioritize what the viewer gets first, whereas what to do is delivered later in the title. “Earn money with free surveys”, is more of an interest than “do surveys and earn money”.

The more interesting headline than  “Earn money” is “Earn 2,000,000 Rupiah”. It is more detail version. Then “Free survey” in detail with “only 10 minutes free survey”. So the complete sentence becomes “Get 2.000.000 rupiah with just 10 minutes free survey.”
After Principle 1, All marketing messages should be centered primarily and first on the customer’s behalf. Stress on what they get, rather than what to do.

Headline Task

The purpose of the headline is not to invite to buy. The purpose of headlines is not to encourage customers to act. The goal of the headline grabs its attention to read into the next section, the introduction. Introduction encourages the reader to read the next points. These points encourage the reader to take action.

Therefore the headline does not have the big task to persuade people to buy. Although no problem if the headline does. Headlines task is to attract attention to see further advertising. Why is it no problem for a headline to persuade to buy? Because sometimes it is necessary for Facebook, advertisers can find a market that requires your product, so the invitation to buy it they can receive with pleasure. The call to buy also appeals to them.

In another article about value proposition, including about the features, benefits, and differentiation in advertising that we offer to the customer segment. Segments customers buy because of benefits and differentiation, not because of the features. Feature information can also make them buy, provided they already have a reason that the feature is related to the benefits they expect to solve the problems it faces.

The value proposition is not only beneficial for improving the product but also for the materials of preparing advertisements for customer segments. Ads will contain benefits and differentiation and persuasive language. Since this is an advertisement on Facebook, then the form of advertising consists of headlines, subheadline, images, links or calls to action.

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance and to avoid showing ads that the user has already seen.

Google uses cookies like NID and SID to help customise adverts on Google properties, such as Google Search. For example, we use such cookies to remember your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s adverts or search results and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This helps us to show you customised adverts on Google.

We also use one or more cookies for advertising that we serve across the web. One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Another is stored in google.com and is called ANID. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID and exchange_uid. Other Google properties, such as YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant adverts.

Sometimes advertising cookies may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. In the case of advertising we serve across the web, cookies named ‘__gads’ or ‘__gac’ may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. Unlike cookies that are set on Google's own domains, these cookies can't be read by Google when you're on a site other than the one on which they were set. They serve purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on that domain and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.

Google also uses conversion cookies whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times the people who click on their adverts end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked on the advert and later visited the advertiser site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalised ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. A cookie named ‘Conversion‘ is dedicated to this purpose. It's generally set in the googleadservices.com domain or the google.com domain (you can find a list of domains that we use for advertising cookies at the foot of this page). Some of our other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

We also use cookies named 'AID', 'DSID' and 'TAID', which are used to link your activity across devices if you’ve previously signed in to your Google Account on another device. We do this to coordinate that the ads you see across devices and measure conversion events. These cookies may be set on the domains google.com/ads, google.com/ads/measurement or googleadservices.com. If you don't want the ads that you see to be coordinated across your devices, you can opt out of Ads Personalisation using Ads Settings.
