Good headlines are the lifeblood of success on Twitter.

Studies have shown you can increase your conversion rate on a link by 73 percent if you use a compelling headline.

Here’s how to create headlines that will captivate readers:

1. Give readers what they want.

Readers click on headlines that promise a reward. It has to be a reward they want and identify with, such as a solution to their problems or a surefire way to success. The most popular examples start with “how to …” or “tips for …”

Example 1: “How to save your marriage with social media”

Example 2:6 steps to a perfect blog structure”

Example 3: “What everyone should know about Google”

2. Create intrigue.
