To build a list you need to have a website, an opt-in box, a free offer, and an auto-responder (email marketing service). The free offer is what brings in the subscribers or leads. Your auto-responder is what ‘follows up’ with your leads. It also gives them access to your free giveaway. This post is going to teach you how to create those free giveaways. The two options are:
- outsource it
- create it yourself
1. Outsource it
This is a major time saver, especially if you don’t have the skills or much time to be spending on these free giveaways. I personally have spent thousands on outsourcing. I feel like it’s cut my learning curve in half. There are lots of marketers out there trying to learn every little thing and it’s slowing them down. My 2 favorites are elance and fiverr. The minimum you can spend on elance is $20, while at fiverr, the minimum is $5. That right there is the only real downfall of outsourcing: it costs money.
2. Create The Giveaways Yourself
There a bunch of routes you can take here. If you have Microsoft Word, you can create your Ebook and then save it as a PDF. This youtube video shows you how to it it. It’s pretty easy. On the other hand, if you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can download a free program called Open Office and turn your document into a PDF. Also pretty easy.
From there, it’s time to deliver your free giveaway to your list members.
