Which One Won? Writing headlines for the web

How do you find the right way to market and present your product for sale? What is the most important value proposition you can offer customers? Writing headlines for the web is one of the most difficult exercises an online business undertakes — but also one of the most essential.

Customers react to words and phrases in ways you might not expect. That’s why it’s critical to do market research, just like in this PickFu poll.

An online telemedicine pharmacy retailer wants to see which headline resonates with 50 women. Each woman in the respondent pool has children, is between the ages of 35 and 74, and self-identifies as a wine drinker.

Option A reads, “Hair skin and eyelash solutions without going to a doctor’s office.

Option B reads, “Hair skin and eylash [sic] solutions online and delivered to your door.”

Which One Won? Can chick lit book cover art be too sweet?

Chick lit is the new chick flick. Or maybe it’s better, because for those who crave the lighthearted humor of a romantic comedy, a book lasts longer. But should chick lit book cover art be as frothy as the subject itself? Bestselling author Kate O’Keeffe took her latest novel to PickFu to find out.

She asked a general audience of respondents the following question: “Which cover do you prefer for a fun, feel-good book about finding love?”

Option A shows a bright red cover with illustrations of two characters (sans their faces) and yellow font.

In Option B, the cover takes a totally different turn. With a pink-clad woman and a light-blue background, this cover is as light as a cupcake. It also lacks the blurb by a fellow bestselling author.
