This post isn’t really about different ways to skin a cat without getting your hands dirty – what it IS about is virality.
A post with this title could be a metaphor for the approach you take to professionally dealing with a difficult client. It could also be a metaphor for diffusing a sticky situation with a group of volunteers. Whatever the REAL storyline is, you’re going to get more clicks if you use a stickier title
Blogs titles/headlines are clicked on and shared more (especially on Twitter) if they have a few characteristics:
- The headline is catchy and has less than 120 characters
- Numbers or lists are used in the headline
- Keywords and unexpected words are used
How do you grab people’s attention when information is flying by them at a million miles per second?
