Is your book title designed to hook your book readers? No. It should. Titles set the stage for your potential audience. They either work to grab your potential reader by the collar and pull them in for the read or they don’t.
Hot book titles create excitement, anticipation and enthusiasm for more. You want your titles to express the heart and passion of your message, right? Then write your book title to be ‘the match’ that ignites interest in reading your important message.
Develop this valuable skill and you add magnetic pulling power and punch to all your marketing tools including your front book cover, bullet points and chapter titles that get your message read. Start with these 7 top tips to sizzle your titles, headlines, bullets and sell more.
1. Include a Top Benefit.
“Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids about Money that the Poor and Middle Class Do Not”
A winning non-fiction title immediately communicates the benefit readers will gain after reading your book. Benefit-oriented books often use the problem-solution approach. Master (A) this skill or technique and get (B) this benefit. Readers buy non-fiction books for a “benefit” for something that will help them, grow them, profit more, cut expense, avoid trouble, gain more time, decrease stress, gain better relationships, get better health, eliminate drama, evade trauma, get more energy and vitality and less fatigue.
2. Make a Big Promise.

People will put your book down if they smell hype and never come back. But if you have big gun promises don’t be afraid to pull it out and use it. Consider carefully and use sparingly; then make your big promise and deliver. People will remember your promises and come back for more or purchase. Don’t forget to include the specific delivery or ‘how to’ inside your big promise titled book.
3. Use Alliteration.
“How to Be a Great Communicator In Person, On Paper and at the Podium!”
Alliteration is using words in succession that start with the same letter. Alliteration also happens when titles include parallel construction or repeated consonants as used in the title and sub-title. For example, a friend used alliteration in her title, “WOW! Women of Worth: Creating a Life Full of Passion, Power & Purpose.” The repeated consonants create a rhythm that cements the book’s title in a reader’s mind.
Tommy Newberry’s “Success is Not an Accident! Change Your Choices, Change Your Life”, the repeated consonants and the repeated word ‘change’ work together to emphasize the success technique.
4. Use Power Words like “How,” “Secret,” “Power.”
