    Ask someone who is online what first strikes their minds. Might be something good

    ZOMG you guys seriously? None of you know how to write a great title? :P That's okay, because writing is totally my area! Check these tips:

    1) BE SPECIFIC!
    Okay so instead of saying "how to make money online" write "how to make $300 dollars in 20 minutes!" People love details and statistics.

    2) Solve a problem!

    I'm sure that nobody cares how much hair your cat shed, unless it happens to solve their problem of cleaning up pet hair. Make sure your title has something helpful in it. Instead of "how my cat lost all of his hair" write "how my cat lost all of his hair - and the solution to cat baldness."

    3) Keywords Galore!

    Use some keywords in your title. Usually the one you happen to want to rank for. "Siberian Tigers on Sale" would sound better like "Buy Siberian Tigers for only $4,000". So you've got specificity and a solution going on. And you'll rank for the "buy siberian tigers" and "siberian tigers" keywords.

    4) Use Verbs!
    Make sure you use ACTION VERBS in your titles. "New Affiliate Marketing Service" should be "Sign Up Now and make $300 with this new affiliate marketing service!"

    5) Be memorable!
    Your brain does this thing where it associates small bits of information, but might forget the source. If you want to grab attention, make a title such as "How Sequential Blogging by Corey Freeman will make you thousands of dollars!" Make sure to repeat "sequential blogging by Corey Freeman" two more times and now even though people might not exactly remember where they read the information, they'll remember the idea! And when they go looking, make sure you rank. (or use this technique to stick your blog in their memory)

    I've got a few links (not mine) on this:

    Another one to add to Corey's list... use alliteration! For those that don't know, this is where you repeat the first letter of each word. I'll show you.

    Without Alliteration:

    With alliteration:

    Instantly, the normal person will go for the latter as it sounds more engaging

    Yeah, I think most people would too. Infact, in our media lessons at school we did a whole lesson on titles, and alliteration was one of those points that really grabs the attention of many.

    Regarding Joe Vitale, I've heard the name but I'm not sure about his book... got a link?

    Cool

    Catchy titles are really important. It greatly affects readership especially if your articles are online. Here are some of my ideas that can help you come up with an effective title:

    -For writing catchy titles, you ought to take into consideration the topic , how you're going to argue, etc. If you've chosen one word, then you ought to seek for the synonyms as synonyms are typically catchier than the initial word you've chosen.

    -Your title shouldn't be either too long or too short. Do not cram an excessive amount of data into the title. Re-read your title aloud and check whether or not it appears like a paragraph, cut out some words to form it as concise as possible. The title must sound catchy.

    -Being specific can make your reader pay a lot of attention to your articles, essays or newsletters. The title is ought to mirror the items that the audience is searching for.

    -Determine your audience and then pick a title. For writing a catchy title, you ought to place yourself within the reader's shoes.

    -You can then try puns or play on words which may provide your title an artless part as long as they don't seem to be overly cheesy.

    -You may try imitating some famous TV show title or choose a phrase from any famous song to use as your title.

    -You should avoid 'difficult to pronounce words' in your title. The language must be easy.
