Where can you get public data and contents for your website?
The short answer is: anywhere! Just about anything that can be compiled into a database qualifies as public data and can be made profitable. The most successful sites are those with subjects its creators are passionate about. What are you passionate about?
If you really enjoy reading the latest celebrity gossip, there’s a public data source on that. You could create a collection of celebrity blog links organized in a variety of ways. You may even post an RSS feed of their most current headlines. After all, what web entrepreneur doesn’t like publicity?
You love to travel, you say? Turn your love of travel into a website that allows others who share your love of adventure a place where they can comment on their trips, post pictures of their travels, suggest local restaurants/hotels/shopping and rank their favorite destinations. You can even be specific: create a site just for river rafters, or one on destinations for avid bird watchers. The more people view your site, post their comments and leave their feedback, the more information your site gathers from visitors, the more popular it becomes, and the more money you’ll make!
As you can see, public data sources are truly the way to go if you’re looking to make a good solid buck on the Internet. No special skills are required and it’s very easy to find a data source you can be excited about.

There is no one fast and firm technique for writing a headline. If the headline works – it’s written correctly. If it doesn’t work, you’ll know.
There are, however, some basic headline rules that always work. All you have to do is learn the rules and then write headlines that obey those rules.
Be Clear & Concise
Don’t beat around the bush; don’t try to use clever word play. Just deliver your message and let the headline do its job.
“Free Shipping On All Harry Potter Books Ordered By January 31”
“Save 30% on Authentic Designer Purses”
“Lose 3 Dress Sizes In 30 Days”
“Learn How to Increase Your Trading Skills at a No-Cost Online Seminar”
“Pay Less for Valentine’s Day Flowers: Pre-Order Today”
Let Them Know What’s In It For Them
Don’t make readers wonder what’s in it for them. State it up front and state it loud and clear.

Make It Newsworthy
People love a “newsy” headline. Newspaper journalists know that so take a cue from their writing style and watch your sales grow. This type of headline skirts a bit around the “funnel” concept because it doesn’t necessarily weed out the interested from the disinterested, but it’s powerful enough to make it worth trying.
“Brazilian Botanist Discovers Anti-Aging Nectar In Common Planter”
“Unemployed Truck Driver Finds Gold In Recycled Garage Junk”
“Created for his own kids, Dermatologist announces new acne treatment”
“Home Business Accountant Reveals 50 Legal Tax Deductions YOU Overlooked!”
Don’t be concerned if the product or service isn’t brand new. It doesn’t have to be brand new to be “news” to someone who has never heard of it.
The How To Template
You almost can’t go wrong with a “How To” headline. People love learning new ways to accomplish things and they love to look knowledgeable to their friends.
“How to Hypnotize ANYONE in 2 minutes or less”
“How to write killer headlines every time”
“How to do all the magic tricks you see on TV”
“How to make money in your spare time with a block of wood and a pencil”
Questions Make Em’ Think
Pose a question that can only lead them to read your e-mail message to get the answer. People love questions and they’ll love your product or service if it answers it for them.
“Was your last raise as big as you deserved it to be?”
“Have you ever made THIS mistake on your resume?”
“What do people think when they hear you talk?”
“Have you ever been nervous about approaching someone you’d like to meet?”
Tell Them What To Do
There are plenty of people who are waiting for someone to tell them what to do. You can be their leader if you craft the right headline.
“Stop wasting time and get the promotion you deserve”
“Don’t let shyness stop you from finding true love”
“Stop losing at the poker table. Read this article now”
“Stop looking like you dressed in the dark”
People spend billions of dollars every year on books, magazines, newspapers and newsletters because they want to change their lives. You can tap into that huge market with your life-changing headlines.

Let Past Customers Preach
You don’t have to be an expert as long as someone else is willing to praise your product or service. You get a double bang because people want to own or use things that are popular and they want to associate with successful or popular people.
“Read what your stockbroker is reading and know what your stockbroker knows.”
“Here are the 5 things that all successful Internet marketers have in common.”
“Why Oprah won’t leave home without this makeup item in her purse.”
“15 popular Presidents carried a silver dollar with them. Here’s why you should too.”
People are naturally distrustful of advertising, especially when it seems a bit hard to believe or when they feel disconnected from what the headline is saying. Add a little “down home” authenticity and watch your response rate soar.
