Let’s just get straight to the point. You need to give people something before you can get anything from them. It’s called building trust.
This ‘freebie’ (or Lead magnet) you’re going to give away should be something closely related to your business and product/service offerings. It is something that you are offering for free in order to get someone’s email (#1 priority) and show them that you know what you are talking about and offer quality work should they (or anyone they know) be in need of your services (#2 priority).
These freebies need to look professional, sound professional, and completely represent and ‘show off’ your brand. Let’s get one created for you ASAP. The sooner you start giving things away, the sooner you start getting money in return (not the dirty way… the lead generating way).
Types of Lead Magnets
There are so many different types of freebies that you can give away on your website to get people to subscribe to your list. They differ in length and purpose and design and usability. Here are a few of the best:
- Editable templates
- “The Ultimate Guide”
- OR ANYTHING ELSE
This is just a list of our favourites. We will create customized lead magnets based on strategy and purpose for your business. Whether it is a checklist or something completely new and fun that your audience would willingly hand over a key to their inbox for.
How Lead Magnets Work
Example: I offer 3 different freebies depending on what page people land on. They are presented as pop-ups.
Ebook: Targeting different audiences with social media (this is a general one on most of the marketing sales pages)
Marketing checklist (this is on my ‘Digital Marketing Strategy’ and ‘Lead Generation’ sales pages)
Social Media Templates (these are on my ‘Social Media Management’ sales pages).
The idea is that I give people the start of their marketing – something that they can walk away with and use right away. They give me their email for them because they are super valuable pieces. WHEN they have tried it themselves, and they have decided they don’t want to do it themselves anymore, they can see that I do want to help them, I do know what I am talking about, and I do offer these services. And now my company is at the forefront of their mind. I then follow these freebies up with a targeted email drip campaign based on their download and the pages they were interested in, as well as my monthly newsletters.
Creating A Lead Magnet
We will work with you to brainstorm the very best ‘freebie’ for your business that is in line with your products and services and is the best ‘top of the funnel’ when it comes to collecting quality leads from people who may want to hire you for your full robust offering.
These freebies are lead generating machines and you only have 1 document (anywhere from 1 page to a super mini-ebook) to show them what you are made of.
- Content Writing: We will write content that is valuable as a stand-alone marketing tool, and also serves the purpose of representing your brand and ending in a light Call To Action (CTA).
- Design: We will then turn that ugly word document into a beautifully branded, eye-catching, and easy-to-digest PDF.
- Shareability: We will also create a small JPG that can be used on your website or social media to help promote the freebie, whether that is a mockup of a book or a highlight image.
It is recommended that you have a strategy in place to share your lead magnet.
We offer full customization and set up of lead generating funnels including lead generation forms (like pop ups), email service integration, and landing pages.
