Impossible:- I’m possible 

In a small village, a farmer owed huge money to village moneylender. Due to misfortune farmer was unable to pay the amount. Moneylender always fancied farmers daughter so he purposed a bargain.He said he would forget farmers debt if he could marry farmers daughter. Both farmer and his daughter were horrified by this proposal. So, Moneylender suggested a way to decide the matter. He suggested that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty money bag and then girl have to pick one pebble from the bag. Condition set was – If she picked black pebble the she would become moneylenders wife and farmers debt would be forgiven and If she pick white pebble then she does not need to marry moneylender and her fathers debt would still be forgiven. She wasnt left with option to refuse to pick a pebble as if she does so, then her father would be thrown into jail. On the day of decision all were standing on a pebble strewn path. As money lander proposed he bent over to pick two pebbles. As he picked pebbled, girl noticed that he had picked two black pebble and put them in the bag. Now, money lander asked girl to pick a pebble from the bag. Even after knowing the dirty trick of money lander girl had to pick pebble so, She put her hand into money bag and drew out a pebble. Without looking at it, She fumbled and let it fall on the pebble path where it immediately became lost among other pebbles. “Oh! How clumsy of me. Girl said. “But not to worry, if you look into the bag for pebbles left, you will be able to tell which one I picked.” after this money lender did not dared to admit his dishonesty by her quick thinking girl changed an impossible situation into extremely advantageous one. 

Lesson: it’s always possible to overcome a tough situation through out of the box thinking, And not give in to the only option you think left.

What you can do? 

In spite of everything I shall rise again: I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing because only you can handle your life. A moment I felt idle, and all I could think of is my pencil, drawing sheet, eraser, and my set-square.

The pencil is in your hand, so the ball is in your court. What have you got inside that heart of yours, show your talent to the world, show your creativity, and give it your best shot. Surely, their is always something in that place you thing you can only see the vanishing point.  

That my life, my work, and work in progress.

Crafting Headlines That Draw Readers In

Have you been craving viral headlines?

No matter how superb they look in a doc, are yours just not getting the attention you think they deserve?

I’m here to help you out. Today, you’ll learn how to create viral-worthy headlines that grab readers’ attention and earn those social shares.

To do that, you must first gain insight into the elements of a viral headline and learn how to take those elements and craft attention-getting, emotionally-striking headers that drive clicks and results.

BuzzSumo Research Uncovers How to Write Viral Headlines

Steve Rayson at BuzzSumo has shared some valuable insight from his latest research on viral headlines.

He says the most important content element is the headline. It determines who clicks through and reads the content, and who will share the post later — including those that share without reading.

During his research, he uncovered the common elements of viral headlines.

What are the Common Elements of Viral Headlines?

  • Emotional Elements: These touch on the reader’s emotional level, including surprise, beauty, inspiration, and even shock.
  • Content Element: This includes images, facts, charts, quotations, and interactions with the audience.
  • Topic Element: Trending topics, health, babies, and love.
  • Format Elements: List-style posts, quizzes, stories, curated content, and research studies.
  • Promise Elements: The reader gains something by reading, such as a complete guide, how-to information, practical tips, and self-improvement.

Rayson dives deeper though and uncovers that viral headlines include more than one category of element. In fact, viral headlines have a word that touches on every single category.

What We Can Learn from Sites Like BuzzFeed

Ever been on BuzzFeed? If not, you probably should.

It is notorious for creating headlines that strike on the content elements required.

Take this headline for example:

head

The headline reads “16 Crucial Stories About Hillary Clinton and Her Campaign.”

Breaking Down the Headline by Elements:

  • Format: The “16” indicates the format is a list-style.
  • Emotion: The use of “crucial” tells you that this is shocking.
  • Topic: “Hillary Clinton” was a trending topic that people wanted to read about.
  • Promise: If you were to read this blog, you would learn critical facts about her and her campaign.
  • Content: You’re told you will receive facts/stories.

See how one single headline touched on every single

Now that you’ve seen examples, you’d probably like to know how to implement all of this and create a killer headline, right?

After all, we promised to share our secrets.

5 Hush-Hush Secrets for Creating Viral Headlines People Want to Click

1. Spend Time on Your Headline

Your headline is something that should be written at the very end.

Take your time to write your piece, then go back and think of the headline.

Write down as many ideas for headlines as you can. Then slowly weed out the ones that don’t work.

According to Upworthy’s Peter Koechley, authors should spend more than half of their time working on a clickable headline. Koechley goes on to say that a headline can drive a post from 1,000 views to more than one million.

We totally agree.

2. See What’s Already Trending

If you don’t know what’s trending, how will you touch on the topic element precisely?

BuzzSumo is a handy tool. In fact, you can use it to see what is trending right now.

You’ll see the score, how many social shares per network, and then you can click through to see the content.

3. Score It

Sometimes you need a little extra help when it comes to identifying how great your headline is and if it strikes on individual elements.

Luckily, there are tools out there that help you do this.

For example, CoSchedule has a headline analyzer that breaks down your headline by emotional value, content, word count, and more. Then, you’re given a score.

The Free Headline Analysis from Advanced Marketing Institute also touches on intellectual, spiritual and emotional values. It provides you with a percentage, which tells you how great your headline is. An excellent score is 50 to 75 percent.

4. Make a Big Claim (and Back It Up of Course)

Big claims get people interested.

Of course, you cannot make a big claim and then not back it up.

If you promise to teach someone revolutionary ways to cut their tax bill this season, you need to provide them with valuable insight.

This includes providing statistics, and valuable information that they have not seen rehashed on the web five billion times.

You’re here to share your expertise and provide them with useful tips that help them save on their taxes.

If you can’t deliver on what you claim or promise, don’t use the headline. There is nothing more annoying than a headline that offers viral-worthy content but fails to address the matter at hand.

So, write up your content. Then, think of a good claim you can offer readers if they were to read the content you’ve just written.

5. Use Superlatives that Appeal to Your Audience

Superlatives and emotional words, per BuzzSumo, are what will resonate with your audience the most. BuzzSumo has a search that lets you analyze these words and determine which will appeal to your primary audience.

For example, LinkedIn is a more professional network. Therefore, they are going to want superlatives that appeal to business types, like “successful” or “results.” Those on Facebook are going with trendy, fun superlatives, like “killer” and “amazing.”

You can use the BuzzSumo search tool to see the most shared topics and see what superlatives were used in those posts, as well as how they worked on social media shares.

For example, I ran a search on taxes. Why? Because tax season is coming up and let’s face it: millions of Americans are likely scrambling to find ways to save and avoid the tax man’s penalties.

What was the top shared Facebook post on taxes?

‘FBI Director Received Millions from Clinton Foundation, His Brother’s Law Firm Does Clinton’s Taxes.’

That single post received 488.4k shares on Facebook, 747 on Twitter, and 232 on LinkedIn.
