But, let’s face it, writing SaaS headlines—especially one as prominent as the one in your homepage hero is tricky. That’s why we’ve compiled three SaaS website headline copy experiments for you to test. Equipped with real-life examples, these three ideas will give you the inspiration you need to write your next batch of SaaS homepage headlines.

Value Proposition-driven SaaS Website Headlines

According to Nielsen Norman Group sites with a clear value proposition have the potential to hold a visitor’s attention for much longer than those that do not. One great place to feature a SaaS brand’s value proposition? You guessed it—your homepage headline. By infusing your homepage headline with your brand’s value proposition you’ll be able to educate visitors about your offering as soon as they hit your site.

Second-person SaaS Website Headlines

Because the second person brings readers directly into the action, it’s no surprise that many SaaS brands leverage this point of view in their homepage headlines.

Benefits-focused SaaS Website Headlines

As a B2B marketer, it's easy to get caught up in promoting the features of your solution. Although features can be impressive, they may not be the key selling points that resonate with your site visitors. That’s why it's essential to focus on the benefits that your product or service provides, rather than just the features.
