Lead Magnet

Adobe PDF IconWe all know that offering a free report is a great way to build a list.

{This is especially true if you want to build a profitable, six-figure affiliate marketing business.}

But what some might not consider is the value that’s often provided with these freebies.  Often, a person will give away their best stuff in one of these guides!

So the other day I did some digging.  I decided to search around the blogosphere and link to the best free ebooks; relating to the Internet Lifestyle topic.

It’s been said that a “Thank You” page is the most important piece of real estate in your Internet business.  My own tests have proven that you can generate a sizable income from this single page – Even from freebie seekers.

I’ve earned (at least) $2000 each month (March to May) from my thank you page.  This is from people who download my free lead magnet and are taken to a simple page with a small advertisement.  There’s nothing special involved in this process; just quick instructions and an click-able image.  Yet it generates a nice income stream.

Now, there is a risk when trying to monetize a thank you page.  Some subscribers will instantly label you as a ‘marketer.’  Often this is the kiss-of-death if you want long-term income from your email list.

Through my experiences, I have found there are five levels of a thank-you page.  Each differs in their amount of “pushy” marketing tactics.  So I decided to map out these levels in this ultra-basic infographic (I’m still working my way through Tristan’s course…so it’s nothing fancy.)

Below you’ll see what’s possible with a “Thank You” page.  It can be used to establish a great relationship with subscribers.  Or you can turn it into a nice little profit-center.  So click on this image to see what’s possible: [click to continue…]

The eBook is dead – long live the eBook!

You may have heard exaggerated reports of the eBook’s apparent demise in your trawls around the old Interwebz.  Those reports have been grossly exaggerated – and whilst it’s true that in some markets the focus has switched to higher value content (e.g Video), not only is the eBook not dead.  But it’s gaining in popularity.

Although Amazon are notoriously tight-lipped in giving specific sales information, they were reporting Kindle books outselling hardcovers by 2 to 1 in May 2010.  And analysts predict that for 2011 Amazon will actually generate more revenue from Kindle book sales, than from sales of the readers.
