Hello SWAGGER Fam,

Do you want to know?

Today is about curiosity.

We are curious beings by nature.

We want to know what's the secret, what's inside, what lies beneath, above, under, and over.

We just want to know.

As communicators, simply presenting an information gap isn't enough. We must deliver on our promise to bridge that gap.

I know you've experienced clicking on headlines that piqued your curiosity to only be disappointed with useless information.

We all have the blog post, podcast, video, and webinar scars to prove it.


Let Me Ask You

Are you injecting curiosity in your headlines and filling the gap?

Actionable Tip

Folks are seeking solutions and are often pressed for time.

Create a win-win to reward them for their efforts with a curiosity-driven headline and your solution inside to bridge the gap.
