Do You Struggle to Write Great Headlines? 

Help is at hand with this great 'cheat sheet' from Jon Morrow at Copyblogger.

I am one of those people that struggles to come up with a great headline.  I found this '52 Headline Hacks' very useful and I refer to it quite often.  I wanted to share it with you as I am sure you will find it useful as well.

This is what Jon has to say – 

After years of writing viral posts at Copyblogger, I took everything I learned and condensed it into this “Cheat Sheet” for writing popular posts. No, it’s not a replacement for mastering the craft, but if you’re a beginner, and you want a quick boost to your blog traffic, then this is absolutely where you should start.

He talks about 6 different types of headlines. I won't give them all away here but List Headlines and Zen Headlines are two of them.
