Here’s what to implement: Spend at most, 10 to  15 minutes to tweak your headline. The body is the information about the article, but the headline is the head and the main reason that will determine whether they’re going to read your article or not.

Use descriptive, thought provoking and benefit driven titles. Make your headline make them want to know more about what you’re writing about.

Another wonderful tip in boosting your list  or generating leads is by not limiting the amount of epic content you post on your blog. By writing quality articles every time, you will be attracting the search engine spiders to regularly your blog. The reason why  a lot of people stop posting after writing 15 to 20 articles on their blog or website is because of lack of ideas.

Here’s what to implement: The best thing to do so you’ll never fall short of  ideas is to write about topics that interest you. Write about things you love and with time, you’ll find out that there’ll be no time you’ll be short of ideas. Another thing to do to make this more effective is by pushing your content across social networking sites, article directories and forums.

They need to know that they’re cared for and it’s a must you express it if you really want to boost your list. Another way to make them to trust you is by assuring them that you won’t give out their contact emails.

Here’s what to implement: To have your readers sign up to your mailing list and buy anything you offer them, you have to show value. You need to show them that you know what you’re talking about ( which makes you an expert).

The only way to make your readers see  you as someone professional is to provide them rare information. Information that they’ve never heard or read before.

 Tip 4#: Make them see you as a real professional– provide quality ( Free) ebook or video

The secret to my success and why I’ve been able to boost my list in a space of two months is because I’ve shown my readers a taste of my expertise by providing them quality information in the form of an ebook.  From time to time, Provide free ebooks and e-course of their interest. Trust me, if you do this, they won’t think twice to buy anything you offer them.

Another benefit of writing short tutorials is that it tends to generate more traffic from the search engines. The reason is because it usually contains short images and mostly graphics.
