Tip: Write quotable headlines

Write quotable headlines. Contented.com tip.

Headlines always matter, whether in a printed article, a document on your shared hard-drive, a blog entry or any other web content whatsoever.

Others will re-use your headline, whether you like it or not:

  • on another web site
  • in a newspaper
  • on Twitter
  • in your archives or document management system
  • in Google

Need I go on?

So think twice about every headline. Sure, it seems to make sense right under your nose, when you're writing it. But does it make sense alone? Is it quotable?
