Sample Halloween Headlines from 2011

Sample Halloween Headlines from 2011 592-daily-golden-nugget-587Halloween is upon us and it's time to pull out the catchy headlines for your email marketing, website headlines, and even your social media posts.

Every year during holiday season I'm always surprised by the cute and catchy ad headlines that tie into the specific holidays. I often wonder how ad writers get their inspirations to come up with cute headlines since I usually don't think of them without immersing myself in holiday kitsch.

As a long term research project, back in the Fall of 2011 I started tracking emails from more than 100 different jewelry stores both large and small. Throughout the last 12 months of tracking I've recorded several cute headlines that tie into different months and different holidays.

Here's a list of the Halloween related phrases that were recorded last year. These phrases didn't appear on websites or in email ads until October 28th. I invite you to review each of these headlines and draw your own inspiration from them. These might be cute or corny, but the holiday gives us the chance to use headlines that are different.

As you can probably tell, some of the jewelry stores I tracked were e-commerce and some were non e-com. The only real difference in the marketing was whether or not the email said shop online or come into the store.

Now's your chance to look around your store and see what would lend itself to a "frightening" offer or headline that you can use in an email, or your next Facebook post.
