Hello everyone!
This has been a very eventful week for me:
We talk about our processes, struggles, ideas… Check it out👂 and let me know what you think!
Let’s move on to today’s issue 👇

4 thread hooks ready to steal
“Hey Alex, haven’t you done this one before?”
But my question to you is, are there ever enough threads hooks to steal?
Nope, I don’t think so. So here’s round 2!
(This time with added templates so you can start writing right away)
The "I know what I'm talking about"
Blake Emal
I’ve audited 500+ websites over the past 6 years.

Here are 17 learnings to help your landing page convert:
Who uses it?

Why does it work?
It’s a hook that relies on credibility.
The first line establishes that credibility via proof of work (audited 500 websites in 6 years). The next one simply introduces what he’s going to share with us.

Here are (N amount of) learnings to help you (do the same you did)
The "bold promise"

Why does it work?
It’s an outrageous claim.
Even if it’s probably not true, you’ll read it, just to see if it is.

This format is a little overdone by now, but with a few tweaks, it still could work.
Version 1
(Outrageous claim) that will (benefit your audience is after)
Version 2
How to (bold promise)
(N number of tweets) to (bold promise again)
Example of version 2 👇

The "I did the work for you"
Dickie Bush 🚢
I spent over 1,000 hours learning to write effectively— because college completely failed to teach me.

Here's everything I learned distilled into 11 tweets (that you can start applying today):
Who uses it?
Dickie Bush (@dickiebush)
Why does it work?
The writer establishes a ginormous amount of hours he spent doing something. Then proceeds to tell you you can steal his learnings in a few tweets.
“1000 hours of learning for 3 minutes of reading?”
That’s a very sweet deal. Who wouldn’t take it?
How to steal it - Template
I spent (an impressive amount of hours) learning to (skill).
Here is everything I learned distilled into (N amount of tweets)
  • In the first sentence, you can add an extra line like the college one
  • In the second sentence, you can add an extra “motivating” line like the “You can start applying today”. Makes the deal even better.
The "Transformation"
Justin Welsh
Back in late 2018, I had never written anything online.

Fast forward 3 years, and I passed 100M impressions.

What most people don’t know?

I use the same process to write every time.

A short 🧵
Who uses it?
Justin Welsh (@JustinSaaS)
Why does it work?
Because it shows transformation. And transformation sells.
The first line establishes something that the author failed to do in the past.
The second line shows how, after a number of years, the author achieved that.
The third line invites us to learn his/her secret.
Pretty irresistible if you ask me!

Back in (date), I (Something you’ve never done or failed to do).
Fast forward (how much time passed), (How that changed).
What most people don’t know?
(Your secret). A thread:
And that is it for today! 🕵️‍♂️
Now get out there and start writing threads with these hooks!
