Quick, Easy Ways To Test Hooks

by Tracy Johnson

Hooks are the most important part of each break on the air. If you don’t command listener attention quickly, they’re gone. A headline on an online post is designed to cause you to take action. If’ it’s not provocative enough to get your click, the publisher doesn’t win engagement. That’s why successful online sites go to great lengths to test headlines. So doesn’t it make sense to test hooks you’re using on the air?
