Your book title is often the ONLY advertisement that standsbetween your bank account and your prospects wallet.

Here are 3 highly successful techniques for turning your mediocrebook titles into sizzling, red-hot, money-making titles...
Book Title Writing SECRET #1: Grab Their Attention
It often happens that book writers have great content, even greatsales letters and press releases, but their title is a dismal, limpdescriptive bore.
This is not the place to "save your best" marketing for the press release.
You want your book title to reach out and grab the browser's attention instantly by being personal, controversial and knowingexactly what is "front-of-mind" for your market.
Use strong words, action words, and controversy (within reason)to capture your prospect's attention.
Book Title Writing SECRET #2: Tap Into Their Interest
Apart from what you may think, you will not create interest inyour readers, what you can do is anticipate and tap into intereststhat already exist in the mind's of your readers.
How do you do this?
Simple, by identifying what that interest is and clearly communicating this in your title.
For example, you've selected dieting as your subject area - and you discover that what your market is REALLY interested in rightnow is diets that are not dangerous to your health.
Your title could be something like:
WARNING: What You Don't Know About Low-Carb Diets That May Hurt You.
It's a matter of knowing what the REAL concerns are in your market.
Book Title Writing SECRET #3: Create Anticipation
Your book title must turn casual interest into enough curiosity that they will take a next step - read your sales letter, lookupyour book, open the cover, purchase your book, etc...
Once you have grabbed their attention, tapped into their interest,the final step is to convince them that YOU, the author, offersa believable, unique and better fulfillment of their desire thanothers do.
You can create curiosity by:
- giving your approach it's own "technology" name
- listing the number of steps or formula stages
- promising results
Book Title Writing SECRET #4: Overcoming Objections
Finally, there is one final step that can really make your booktitle effective - that's to eliminate the biggest objection yourprospects will have to not buy your product.

Sharpen Your Writing With Structure
At some point, every serious writer is forced to sit down and conclude that there is something seriously wrong with their work. It wanders; it is pretty in some spots and horribly ugly in others. It doesn't always make sense, and is uneven in places. Even though every sentence is grammatically correct, there is something fundamentally broken about the piece.
