platform online, and one of the most important components of your platform is your blog.
But with so many bloggers and people with a message screaming for attention what will
grab your audience' attention and get them to read your posts? A good title or headline!
Today I want to give you some tips for writing killer blog headlines.

are several reasons why it is so important:

o Your headline is often the "make or break" factor that influences whether people even
bother to load the page in their browser and read what you have written in the post.

you have to say? Here are some proven ways to do it.
