Ok, that title may be a little misleading. But it did get your attention and got you to click through to the post, didn’t it? That’s called linkbait. We didn’t come up with a hot blog post title like that without assistance… we used Portent’s Content Idea Generator.
- Ego hook – people share content when you give them a shout out.
- Attack hook – by going on the offensive, you can spark interest.
- Resource hook – a great resource is always a great content idea!
- News hook – trending topics drive more clicks.
- Contrary hook – create a debate and you’ve got yourself a contrary hook.
- Humor hook – You’re reading this post, right?
Titles are so important to your content. What I like about this tool the most is that it doesn’t just randomly pop up a title, it also explains why the title works as linkbait. It’s not perfect every time, but it’s fun and comes up with awesome content ideas enough to write this post about it!
