Concept and Memes to Connect Instantly.
One of the leading rules of developing a sizzling title is to
aim for a concept, a memes, a word, or phrase that tell a story
that your readers can immediately connect with and want to associate
with. Names that tell a story, or express a benefit, are memes.
They are words or visual images that tell a story at a glance.
As a primer to developing your own title, visit Sears and look
at the brand names of their proprietary products. The short
names of these products are concepts; that tell a story in an
instant. At a glance you get it.
You understand the message. Examples, include Diehard batteries,
Weather-Beater paints and Craftsman tools. Each products name
is a concept. Think about it, which product would you be attracted
to "Diehard" or "Stop Slow". Or would you
choose tools with the name "Apprentice" or "Craftsman?"
Many successful books are based on concepts
or memes. For example, "A Happy Pocket Full of Money"
by David Cameron tells a story of happiness and money. From
the title you know this book is going to be about getting more
money in your pocket.
The Chicken Soup series instantly brings images of comfort and
being cared for. It resonated with a whole generation of Americans
that have bought the book into the hundreds of thousands. The
Dummies series communicate anyone can read one of these books
because you don't have to know anything to get it. People automatically
know the book will somehow make the complex simple to understand.
When developing your title, think of a concept, a meme, or phrase,
that tell a story that your readers will instantly understand
and want to be a part of. You may ask where are the benefits
you're always telling me to include. The benefits are still
a part of the meme title but a suggestive part. Your mind will
fill in the benefit because it's an understood part of the story.
Chicken Soup brings the comfort and care of good stories. Pocket
Full of Money know how to get a pocket full of money and gain
happiness. Dummies communicates you don't have to be an expert
to understand the book.
Don't forget when creating your title, your possibilities are
limitless. Choose a title that is flexible enough to be expanded
into more than one book. Think series, including other information
products that can be developed and sold from your website.
