Creating Your Lead Magnet
The most important part of creating your lead magnet is deciding what content you want to give away in exchange for people’s contact information. Popular types of lead magnets include eBooks, webinars, checklists, cheat sheets, case studies, white papers, discounts or coupons, how-to guides, and more. When creating your lead magnet, make sure it’s valuable enough that people will actually want to give their contact information in exchange for it.
When designing your lead magnet, make sure it looks professional and engaging. Use clear fonts and good design principles to ensure that your lead magnet looks attractive and draws the eye of potential customers. Additionally, make sure the content is well-written – grammar mistakes or misspellings can be off-putting to prospective customers considering exchanging their contact information for your offer.
Lead Magnets in Action
Once you have created your lead magnet content and designed it attractively, it’s time to start using it! Place links to the download page on social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram (make sure they link directly to the download page). You can also place banners on popular websites (with permission) or create email campaigns encouraging people to sign up in exchange for access to your offer. Be creative! The more places you link to your offer page, the more likely people will see and download it – which means more contacts for you!
