How to Craft Killer Headlines And Blow Your Readers' Minds

In the busy, boisterous professional world we live in, grabbing someone’s attention as a marketer is no mean task. How will you get them to read what you write? It takes more than design or a snazzy color palette to grab attention, right? Good content helps, but not unless the reader is drawn in to invest time into reading it.
 
One word: Headlines.

I love the examples of great headlines given in this blog. This part hit me like a brick "A compelling headline receives more traffic and more engagement, with more clicks, shares, and likes. The headline you produce is the first impression you make on a reader." It's so true. The headline is the "entire sundae". Take a minute to read this post if you have a blog or own a business. Awesome stuff here.

Good share from +Jessica Gordon Ryan - how much thought do you give to being a gracious houseguest? 
 
Being a gracious houseguest... am I stating the obvious? Should house rules apply to guests? Should guests follow certain protocol or should they just come and go and exist as they please? Some say they'll do anything to be a gracious host and some say that certain guests simply take advantage. Clearly there's a fine line here... Would love to hear your thoughts.
During the summer many of us take off, sometimes for a couple of days, long weekends, for a week, even a month or longer. When we're not staying in hotels we're often staying with friends and family who've opened their homes to us. Oftentimes our hosts are there, yet every so often they're not and still kindly open up their homes. I've read dozens, if not more, I've read many posts, many of them often sharing similar bits of information...

Good use of space!  Now you can post a #selfie  while throwing away your trash!  ;-)  
BigBelly wants to turn hundreds of its smart, solar-powered trash cans and recycling containers into WiFi hotspots specifically for undeserved neighborhoods.

There are apparently people who don’t’ use the Internet, Apple music is killing it, sort of, Target is beacon friendly, and Periscope adapts for couch surfers.

Have you eaten in Downtown Roanoke lately? If not, head to Awful Arthur's! Check out the Raw Bar Specials, especially the crab legs! Delicious!!

I have had the pleasure of following, interacting with and recommending Kim here on Google+ and other social platforms for a while now. I can easily recommend her based on these interactions and getting to know Kim. She is a true professional that "knows her stuff" and can back it up!! Get to know Kim and check out her business. You will be glad you did!
