Misleading Native Headlines Are Costing You Millions In Potential Revenue

Ads that best describe the offer and funnel, always do the best. If you are spying and reusing headlines. Then you’ll want to make sure they are still relevant to your presell page. I do highly recommend them to be slightly unique if possible. Thesaurus.com has made me so much money by just finding replacement words for copy.

If you are running a proven landing page, and are losing 60% of the clicks above the fold. Then you might start off by looking at the headlines. Wouldn’t it be worth to pay more to get a lower ctr ad that converts more impressions? Clicks that actually engaged with the article? Let the Presell page do its job, find the right demographics for this funnel.

Misleading headlines will get clicks, but won’t get you a high percentage of people who take the time to read the article. Are they even interested in the product in the first place?

Why not use the ad image or headline to pre-qualify the click’s? It would help reduce the number of unlikely buyers/converters clicking on your ad.

You have to give them what they are expecting to get. This is the best way I’ve found to get into their shoes.

You want to build your headlines while looking at the presell article. Think of it more as content marketing over affiliate marketing. Write interesting, relevant, targeted headlines. The ad platform will find you people who respond. If they are willing to read an article about a {city} mom sharing her no effort magic weight loss pill with the world.

Trust me, those are the people you want reading and clicking.

Even if you have to pay 2-3 cents more per click, you are increasing your engagement rate by a massive amount. Reducing the number of people who would never buy in the first place, and have an easier time finding placements that work. Just by changing a few words in the headline.
