Responses to Option A
1
sounds less clickbaity
2
I like A a little more than B. I think it is better to stay positive in the title. I think saying this is an easy way to do great things is better than they do it wrong so you should do it this way.
3
Option A sounds simpler by not mentioning the cleaning industry.
4
B is fear-mongering and pandering; A is clearer and more concise.
5
Option A sounds a lot less paranoid!
6
Option A sounds more interesting
7
This is a very positive sounding book title
8
seems more useful
9
I like the number reference here.
10
A little less can be a lot more sometimes.
11
Option B sounds like it is two books in one and it's harder to tell what the main focus of the book is.
12
The wording sounds a bit better.
13
Choice A does not make me feel afraid. Choice B makes me feel afraid
14
B sounds unscientific and also terrifying.
15
Option A actually sounds very interesting and useful. Option B comes off as paranoid, exploitative and alarmist and is very unappealing.
16
Option B is too sensational and not credible.
17
B sounds intense and very negative. A seems more positive and interesting.
18
like the list of ways
19
I prefer Option A, because it makes using essential oils sound like a positive rather than using negative language about other cleaners.
20
Option B sounds like it was written by a crackpot conspiracy theorist. I would laugh at the title and move on if I saw it on a bookshelf.
21
TO ME OPTION A SOUNDS MORE APPEALING AS A BOOK TITLE.
22
The other is sensational and alarmist. It repels me even though I'm interested in the topic. The other option is more appealing.
23
B is too long, it's like a paragraph.
24
I like the 25 ways
25
B sounded very sensationalized
26
Option A sounds positive and interesting, and I like that it says 25 ways. That makes it sound like it will be a list, so it will be easy for me to read and follow. I don't like option B because it sounds like a conspiracy theory book and that doesn't interest me.
27
I prefer the 25 Effortless Ways, the number is catchy to me.
28
This seems a bit less tabloid.
29
It actually shows you methods of cleaning yourself with essential oils.
30
The one I didn't pick smacks too much of conspiracy theory.
31
It focuses on the content vs trying to use fearmongering.
32
I like the way a is worded better
33
More positive message. I don't want to need an anti-depressant when I read about essential oils.
34
The other title is too try-hard.
35
It gives the useful ideas in real life
36
The alternate sounds too sensational for my liking and I would avoid it.
37
The title I picked sounds less aggressive and confrontational, which is why I like it.
38
Most people who would choose to use essential oils for cleaning are aware of the dangers present in certain cleaning chemistry. They do not need fear mongering to convince them.
Responses to Option B
1
Option B sounds more interesting like it is a risque book that could double as a thriller.
2
Sounds more useful
3
The other one sounds like it is going to be a trashy "buzzfeedesque" article.
4
I prefer this title because is more interesting
5
Reads more like a self help and investigative book.
6
option a sounds like clickbait
7
dirty secrets are intriguing
8
This one sounds a little better.
9
Choice B could possibly provide a lot of information about current products that I'm using of which I'm unaware of that would make me avoid them in the future.
10
This one is definitely click-baity but it works for a reason.
11
This title makes me more curious about the book and subject.
12
This title is more scandalous which is intriguing.
