Today I want to talk about maximizing free gifts you offer in your business. This is a great way to generate leads both online and at events.
I’m talking about when you go to someone’s website and see an opt-in box where you are offered a free audio, video, webinar, a drawing, free report or download to entice you to sign up for their newsletter. If you are online, you need to offer this. And, your website needs to have the functionality to display the opt-in box, you’ll need a way to deliver your gift automatically via email or on your website.
You also need to have a free gift to offer when you are at a networking event. I’ve just returned from an exciting networking event and was surprised that many of the people there didn’t have a call to action at the end of their 30 second commercial to entice people to give them their business card (and permission to put them on their email list).
If you have the type of business where most people will not hire you on the spot, you need to be prepared to offer a freebie so people can experience you or your products/services and to interact with you. This is the start of the KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST relationships you want to build.
Here are some examples of a free offer:
- A free consultation
- A recording of one of your teleclasses or seminars
- A video of you giving your Signature Speech or Talk
- An Article
- A checklist
And for you network marketers out there who have products to sell but not services, you can do a drawing.
Now if you are at networking or live events, there are 3 ways you can get more exposure for your business and generate leads with your free offer:
- As an exhibitor
- As an Attendee
- As a Speaker
