When you’re trying to get someone’s attention, get them to open your email, or click on a link from social media, you have to be able to tell them what’s in it for them.  You need to use what’s called a Gain Headline.

To use this style of headline you have to be specific and define for your reader how they will benefit if they take the time to click or read more. And if you want them to come back, you need to be sure that your content lives up to the promise your headline makes.
