This Infographic shows 5 examples of what to giveaway in order to build your list. Many marketers use different methods of list building these days. There are really only two ways to build a list - 1 is to sell something, 2 is to give something away for free.
<ul><li>1. For years people were giving away free reports & eBooks, at one point it seemed everyone was giving away a free report, they became pretty thin and useless. Many were re hashed material found in hundreds of other reports or simple off the shelf reports made from PLR content. PLR means Private Label Rights; you buy the content and can then re use it as your own or as you please. Ideally you want to create the best eBook you can crammed full of useful information that makes it worth the lead handing over their email details. The bigger and the better is the way forward.This is an excellent give away, if you know something that people will find helpful like SEO then you can create a video or a series of videos that are very easy to make and then offer them as a freebie in exchange for email details.This is another popular freebie, if you have created a sales page that converts well like Zac Johnson did with his CPA sales pages you can give away the HTML template with images and headlines that can be easily edited with free HTML editing software like NVU. Sales pages, templates and Themes help the newbie to get started; do you think people would not give you their email details to take you up on that helpful offer?This is similar to the video course and can in fact use video tutorials as part of the course. For this you offer a short trading course over a set period of 5 or 7 days and you send the new sign up an email with a new part of the course. The email can contain the course material or you can set the course material on pages on your website and then each email will contain the link to the next part online allowing the new subscriber to study the next section.This one is a really good one but also a very tricky one to pull off, you create a competition like Win a Free Website where people who want to try and win have to hand over their email details to enter. The prize has to be chosen carefully, if you offer an iPad as a prize but your website is about healthy eating, it is very possible that your email list will have people on it who are not interested in your website content and only entered to try and win an iPad.</li></ul>
