Oct 11, 2007
Do you post to message boards, e-mail discussion lists, classified ads sites, FFA sites or newsgroups? People will usually read the subject line before they read your ad or message, so it's important they get noticed. Below are ten simple, but powerful tips to get your ads or messages noticed.

If you do not know how to post on messages boards correctly you could do a lot of work and get little or no results. Posting the correct way can have a drastic effect on your business.

1. Use extra white space creatively in your subject line. You can add extra blank spaces between your words or letters. This will make your headline stand out more from the rest.

2. Combine capital letters with lower case letters. Use all capital letters in every other word or use a capital letter between every other lower case letter. This will help draw people attention to your ad.

3. Add text symbols in your subject line. You could use them between words and letters. Start and end your subjects with a text symbol.

4. Begin your subject line with the word STOP. People have been trained their whole life to stop what they are doing when they see that word.

5. Ask people a question in your subject line. We all went to school and were repetitively branded to answer questions. This is always a good way to get people to click on your ad.

6. Use the word FREE in your subject line. Your offer should be attractive to your target audience. It could be free information, software, trials, etc. Everyone loves to get free stuff this will only help your ad convert better.

7. Begin your subject line with an online smiley face. People use smiles offline to gain people's attention and to win their trust, why not use them online too.

8. Do not use unbelievable claims in your subject line. People have or know some who has been ripped off and trained themselves to ignore those claims. Most people think saying large amounts of money will help their ad when really it only hurts it in the end.

9. Do not use all capital letters in your subject line. It is hard to read, looks unprofessional, and on the internet it is considered a symbol for shouting.

10. Test different subject lines to see which ones draws the most traffic to your web site. Also, read the FAQ before posting a message or ad anywhere.
