Can I let you in on a little secret about generating more income for your business?
You’ll think I sound completely bananas, but I promise that it works!
Here it is:
>>The secret to making more money is to give away something for FREE.<<
*I know, I know. Crazy, right?!*
In case you didn’t guess it already, I’m talking about a freebie.
>>A freebie, by definition, is exactly as it sounds: a resource that you give away for free in exchange for someone’s email address.<<
That, my friend, is how you grow an email list, which has the possibility of putting more money in your pocket.
In fact, a study done by John Valenty found that:
>>1 email list subscriber = between $0.25-$1.00 per MONTH in income generation<<
People are happy to subscribe to an email list when they can see the value they’d receive, and a freebie is the best way to showcase that.
A freebie may be free, but it actually gives you the opportunity to make money! *Cha-chiiiiing!*
>>By giving someone something that they WANT, you will be the first person that comes to mind when they NEED something that you provide.<<
So how can you tell that a freebie is something that your audience wants?
One word: TEST.
By testing out several ideas, you’ll have a better grasp on what your current audience is looking for, which in turn will help you figure out how to gain more subscribers.
Here are 3 steps to test content to determine what people want to learn from you:
1. Think of 4-5 topics your audience might be interested in
2. Turn them into 4-5 Facebook and Instagram posts
3. Of those posts, evaluate which ones got the most engagement, likes, and questions
And remember this:
>>If at first you don’t succeed, test, test, and test some more!<<
Oh, what’s that I hear, Buttercup? You’d like some ideas for a freebie that you can create for your audience? I thought you might ask! 😉
