A New Title for my New Self-help/Business/Marketing Book That’ll Make me MILLIONS!

May 20th, 2010

I’ve read a lot of self-help and business books.  Now, I’m thinking about writing one.  I’ve already shown you how to write one, so isn’t it time that I step up to the plate?

I figure I don’t need to say anything substantial.  I can just take one idea and repeat it over and over again.  It should be enough to fill up a whole book, especially if I cheese it.

I mean people think that if I give them ONE good idea, then a book is worth buying.  Well, by that ridiculously low standard, I can pull it off with no problem.

The problem is the title.  I just can’t think of a good title.  I figure the title will sell my new book more than anything.

So what should I do?

I am thinking of giving it some “trendy” and provocative title that makes me sound hip and cool and edgy, like ones I mentioned before:

  • Same is the new different
  • Slow is the new fast
  • Drunk is the new sober
  • Beginning game is the new end game
  • Polka Dot Daffodils

Then again I could go with BOLD PROCLAMATIN title:

  • The Death of Self-help
  • The Coming Greatest Depression of ALL TIME
  • How Humankind will be Wiped Out in 2013: And How You can Prevent it
  • The Collapse of the Corporate America and the Rise of the Mini-corporation

Of course, there are a ton of the one word/one-syllable book titles out there.  So, I could follow in that tradition:

  • Bump
  • Grind
  • Lock
  • Drive
  • Stop
  • Push
  • Shove
  • Budge
  • Masses
  • Herds
  • Turds

Or I could go with the tried and true number title combined with a “money” word like success or wealth:

  • 7 Ways to Be Successful NOW
  • 5 Habits of Wealthy Superstars
  • 9 Steps to Wealth
  • 101 Ways to Enrich Yourself with Unlimited Wealth

Then again, I could go with a combination of them:

  • Push: 7 Ways to be successful NOW!
  • Drive: 5 Habits of Wealthy Superstars
  • Polka Dot Daffodils: How Humankind will be Wiped Out in 2013: And How You can Prevent it!

Man, this is too much..I think I’ll just go with the title that came to me first:

THIS BOOK SUCKS (But Buy it Anyway)!
