    Sometimes it could be a bit hard to come up with a great article title that would instantly grab the attention of your readers. Luckily, there are tons of awesome ideas floating around everywhere (for free) ready to be used.

    Here are couple of such FREE sources:
    1) TV commercials - they are short, right to the point and most likely were brainstormed by some very experienced marketers. The commercial does not even have to be for your niche. Whenever you hear a great, catchy line that could be used for your article title (modified slightly if needed), grab it and use it.

    2) IM newsletters. I subscribe to many IM newsletters, but far not always read them all because of the lack of time. However I never unsubscribe because they could be very useful (yes, even if I don't even open some of them). I always read at least their subject lines (takes just a second). They can give you some awesome ideas for your articles titles combined with your key words and phrases.

    Do not copy the whole thing, but use some catchy phrases or oftentimes their subject lines trigger other great article title ideas.

    You might try putting something like "shocking" in a title to get a higher clickthrough.

    Some examples: "(your competition name or your keywords) - NEVER AGAIN! " or "The Brutal Truth About ...... (your key phrase or competition name)". This one is used in IM niche alot.

    Another one: "(your key phrase) Almost Cost Me My ... (Job, Marriage, Vacation, First Date etc., etc., etc.)

    That is one way to look at it.
