Thank you for helping in my experiment!
You see, I'm doing market research for a friend ...
... and I bet her that the title of this blog post, "Confessions of an Anonymous Blonde," would work as a headline for her promotion.

And when it comes to headlines, don't reinvent the wheel. Look to winning ads for ideas to borrow.
Case in point: Remember the ugly advertorial I wrote about last time? The one that's been raking in over $20,000 a month for 18 months?

Guess where I got the idea? Take a look ...
That ad, for My Pillow, ran for years in The Wall Street Journal and other publications. It's a proven winner. So I borrowed the headline and gave my own ad a built-in advantage.
Something to think about if you're ever searching for an advertorial headline.
