1 Headlines and Taglines Advertising Strategy (Alstiel and Grow)

2 Headline types, when to use it News: when you want to introduce a new product, new brand, new feature Direct benefit: when you want to promise a reward or highlight the prime benefit in the headline Curiosity: when you want to intrigue the reader into finding the main ideas in the body copy Emotional: when you want to sell the image and/or invoke resonance in the reader

3 Headline types, when to use it Directive (Command): when you want the reader to do something Horn blowing: when you want to impress the reader by being the biggest, the fastest, the first, etc Comparison: when you want to differentiate your brand from the competitor or use a metaphor to describe your product Label: when you want to focus on the brand name, product name, or campaign tagline rather than discuss features/ benefits

6 Writing Headlines with Style Style – Headline – Visual – Client How-to – How to write an obituary for your teenager – [All-type ad] – Partnership for a drug- free America Quote – I told my dad I stopped raising hell and he called me a quitter – Redneck-looking guy smoking a cigarette - Winton Quote – These tables are my voice and Im about to holla the world – DJ scratching two turntables – Moutain Dew Red

7 Ineffective Headlines Asking a question that cannot be answered (confusing) Asking a question that can be answered with a simple yes or no (no involvement) Using a headline as a caption, describing rather than interacting (no synergy with visuals and limited involvement)

8 Ineffective Headlines Using puns that have no relation to the product or the market Insulting, condescending, patronizing (annoys intelligent readers) Being clever for the sake of cleverness (trying to impress rather than persuade)
