How to write headlines - a must have skill

Whether it's blogs, sales pages, or video script, everything starts with a headline.

On the average, five times as many people read the headlines as read the body copy.” David Ogilvy

I confess, I've been in denial about headlines for a long time!

Advice like 'write the headline first', left me blank. Staring at an empty screen, unable to write a word because I didn't know where to begin with the blasted headline.

It wasn't till I read, and reread, numerous articles and free downloads dedicated to the subject that I eventually realised the importance of them, and was able to face them without a feeling of utter failure before I'd even started.
