Captain Mikeâ€™s Clickbait Shop is Open for Business!
Paramedic drinks the blood of his patients while searching for eternal life!
My job, as a writer of articles for the internet audience is to get you to click on the link to the story I wrote. The best way to accomplish this task is by â€œbaitingâ€ potential readers. Headlines that donâ€™t deliver on their promise are epidemic, leaving the reader feeling tricked and angry. But they return to the same sites over and over, blindly expecting a reward for their time.
Research shows that the pleasure sensors in our brains emit dopamine and serotonin when the THOUGHT of a positive experience waits, not necessarily during the experience.
I have done some research of my own, and know for a fact that quality content is always preferable to attention grabbing headlines, but getting a reader to engage in the quality content takes some trickery. Iâ€™m sorry to disappoint you, but there will be no blood sucking paramedics in this article, but read on if you dare, you will get a chuckle, and might even laugh out loud.
