5 Ways to Create a Valuable Freebie to Give Away for Listbuilding

These days it’s not enough any more to get people to opt-in to your email list simply by your invitation. You need to be capable of giving them something of value as an enticement to sign up if you want to reach decent numbers.

The conventional wisdom you’ll hear from people is to obtain an ebook, perhaps PLR content that you can give away freely for the opt-in.

The problem with this is that not only is this content not unique to your business, it’s likely out of date information, and almost certainly not the prime focus of your business. So let’s take a look at how you can create a freebie that’s of real value to not only you, but the person who you’re asking to opt-in.

5 Ways to create unique freebie that gets the opt-in

  1. Videos – We all like to watch, and using a video to present yourself and your business is a great way to accomplish several tasks with one piece of content. People will tend to trust more after listening and viewing your content, and not only that videos are easily sharable and can get you far more mileage for your efforts.Current Best Practices When It Comes to Creating a Freebie for Giveaway
  2. Podcasts – In a similar fashion, a podcast can also work its magic as a video does, but with an added dimension: people listen to podcasts while on the move, when they’re not able to view. They can also find their way into the many podcast directories and iTunes.
  3. Short Reports or Ebooks – I know, I said that ebooks are taboo. What I meant though was unoriginal, rehashed ebooks. If you’re able to craft compelling, unique content that is of true value, you’ll get the click!
  4. E-Courses – Packaging a course of study into an autoresponder series is a tried and true way to convey valuable information that you can also use to lead to your desired action.
  5. Free Webinars – Another cutting edge way to engage with large amounts of potential customers and clients in an exciting, multimedia way. They’re getting easy to conduct, and if you have a Google account, you can get one going in minutes with Google hangouts.
