10 Ways to Exploit Human Nature and Write Amazingly Appealing Headlines

Sucks, doesn’t it?

You know how important headlines are. You know the success of your blog hinges on your headlines. And you know that yours aren’t getting the job done.

Your blog posts just sit there collecting e-dust because your headlines barely get clicked.

So what are you doing wrong?

15 Persuasion Techniques Stolen from Emails That Make $10K/Month on Autopilot

Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?

Not just making $10K/month, which would be awesome all by itself, but making $10K/month on autopilot.

My guess is that this dream has tickled your brain once or twice.

The good news is that you can make it a reality. The bad news is that this takes time.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t start making money from your blog right now.

You won’t earn $10K/month right from the start, but you can earn something. You just have to learn how to sell. You have to learn how to persuade strangers to take out their credit cards and buy your products and/or services.
