Blog Headline Mad Lib For Brand Archetypes

Blog Headline Mad Lib For Brand Archetypes

One of the first places that people will likely find your work will be by reading a headline for one of your blog posts. For this reason, it’s important to incorporate your personality and brand archetype into them.

I was planning on selling this content as part of my ebook series (and still may do so in in bigger way) but since my freelance work has stopped my ebook production at the moment, I’m giving this away for free.

BTW, all of the X’s are meant to be numbers – replace those with the number of items in your list.
