Man, I’m still kind of stunned over how well yesterday’s lines turned out. If it’s cool with you guys, I’m going to practice a little more with these new Best Direct Response Headlines and revisit an old list.

My last 5-hour Energy post fell a little short of expectations. Let’s see what building off a stronger base might do…

Overall: They’re good, but I’m not as blown away as yesterday. I’d say some lines are really strong. Several others read a bit too much like a cheesy ad. Which is kind of 5-hour’s thing, so maybe…

Lessons: The lines I like best are the ones that built off the original template, but had my own spin on it. So I need to keep doing that. It’ll take a little more tinkering to get these into my system.

  • A little clickbait-y at times—which is the challenge now that the great lines have been so commercialized
  • I know this might not be as much fun to read as the others, but it’s all part of the growth process
  • I wish I could share the list I’m working from with you, but it was part of a paid course. Otherwise I totally would.

Time: 45 minutes. These were quick since I was working directly from the template.
