Your Irresistible Opt-in Offer Can Reveal Secrets?

Have you ever read that your site visitors are going to give you three seconds to make your irresistible ‘optin’ offer?

This all means that you really do need to know who your audience is and give them what they want from you!

This is where…

Your irresistible free offer comes in as one of your value keys to drawing site visitors in to learn about and get more from you.

  • Your irresistible opt-in offer is what you give away, an ethical bribe, in exchange for their email address.

This means that you want to understand:

Your Content Goals:

  1. Develop familiarity with your services and ideas – meaning know where to share your content regularly
  2. Show attention and care to your ideal audience daily
  3. Help change how their thought processes about something you’re sharing and want to draw in their attention for
  4. Understand the tactics that will help you reach your goals quickly
  5. Know where your content fits and grow your client loyalty
  6. Your main objective when someone reads your content? It is to turn that reader into your client. You can’t accomplish this if your readers aren’t perusing your content and want to know more about what you’re sharing with them.

Facebook challenge - Free offers

Not only does your reader receive your free offer, gift, updates, maybe training, and/or blog posts delivered to them regularly…

But you’re creating more opportunity for your audience to grow that ‘know, like, trust factor with you and for what you do.

Did You Know?

Your List is One of Your Best Business Assets.

Always want to think about…

How can you make this free offer as attractive as you possibly can make it, to create an offer that is truly irresistible?

Hmmm….what to do?

The Answer…

Give away some of your best, most secret, tactics, and how-tos.

And, keep on giving. Either as a free offer or as my own coach says – ‘Never just give it away for free – You can always offer your expert gift for a price of $20…Do it! And start building your ‘List of Buyers!’

“The big question I’ve heard is, does your audience really want to engage with your brand the same way they would a friend. That is being social and sharing experiences. This is why you really need to understand more about your targeted audience.”

So…Even as I’m writing this I am revamping my great irresistible opt-in offers and email training’s that go with it.  email marketing, optin offers

Here are some ideas that I’ve used and considered…

      1. A checklist ~ got it
      2. An e-book ~ got it
      3. A report ~ got it
      4. Audio or 2 ~ got it
      5. A how-to promote and keep it organized – Working on that awesomeness right now.
      6. Video training series – this is what I’m in the works of putting together!

And, that’s not all… There are more ideas – this is just something I’ve thought my own audience would profit from and I would enjoy producing for them.

This is what I suggest to my clients:

Always ask yourself…

  • “What Does Your Perfect Client Want You to Offer?”
  • “Then what format would they want it?”
    • Is it: Video, report, checklist, audio, blog post, email, maybe podcasts?

I do get more inspiration and answers as I grow and get to know my own audience niche better. Then I add and change my offers and my emails giving more and even having more fun giving. As I offer my readers (audience niche) a taste of what I can do for their businesses.

grow your business online, list buildingSo…

What are the steps you need to take to create your irresistible offer?

It’s as easy as 1-2-3…

  1. I suggest that you define the problem your readers have.
  2. What are their challenges related to that problem?
  3. Discover the solutions that you have to offer for those challenges.

Then, you’ll understand some of the real results your readers want and need that you help with regarding the problems they are challenged with.

I always ask myself, ‘Why would my ideal audience want to read my blog?’ 

The answers are the same for my blog, my offers (free or paid), my Social Media posts…and the same answers apply for you…

Let me ask you then, what do you give in your own irresistible opt-in offers?

    I started out in one direction, but my site completely took on a life of its own. I like the way it turned out, though.

      Thank you, Liz – Yep – that’s how we start growing our list of contact to keep in touch with 🙂 And we also grow as we get to know our audience better 🙂

    This is a great way to draw people to your site. I am going to have to remember this. I am revamping my site.

    These are some amazing tips indeed for bloggers to bring in more people. It is an awesome idea to give your visitors something they want. Thanks for sharing.

    Great ideas! I’ve been blogging since I was 12, sounds hilarious but I have been (almost 30, july!) on and off and I’ve never really taken my blog as seriously as I do now. It started off being a place to just rant, rave and babble and now it’s a place I love, adore and thrive to make better. I’m getting views, and comments but I still thrive for a bit more!

    I’ve been trying to come up with something to offer. Your post reminded me that I need to get busy and make it a reality instead of just thinking about it.

    These are great tips & reminders, Donna. I’ve created two landing pages in the past 10 days, for two different gifts. I’ve found that the deeper my content, the better the response.

      I know, Right? Thank you AnnMarie – I am in the process this week of giving more as I said – It’s more fun for me and for my readers Thank you so much for your comment, 🙂

    I’ve visited blogs before that had a pop up that offered something free, that is a pretty cool idea. Not sure what I would offer though.

  • May 17, 2015 at 8:15 am

    I have never really thought about it before, but I can see how that free offer really would attract people! I know that it attracts ME when I am on a website!

    • May 18, 2015 at 7:33 am

      Excellent note, Jenn – thank you – what is your next step to take & make this happen? Thank you for your great sharing 🙂

  • May 17, 2015 at 9:04 am

    My blog started out in a totally different direction. After I had my son though it just evolved but I just love it! 🙂

  • May 17, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    Anything “free” sounds enticing and really good. The process of putting the tips and lessons to practice may be a little hard especially for beginners here in blogging.

  • May 18, 2015 at 5:11 am

    I’ve toyed around with this idea but just haven’t gotten of the starting blocks yet. I need to revisit the idea more seriously.

  • May 18, 2015 at 5:58 am

    I actually read about giving a gift or something to your readers to increase you email list, but I haven’t given it much thought. Thank you for this, Donna. I’ll think about it.

    It’s true! I never planned on hosting giveaways on my blog… I always associated that with couponers for some reason & well…. Giveaways really drive in so much extra traffic! It’s insane! Even for a can of hairspray I will get thousands of extra hits & even gain subscribers because they are waiting for me to announce another giveaway lol… Now I host at least one giveaway a month! Can’t say no to that kind of traffic

  • May 20, 2015 at 1:33 pm

    These are great tips. I’m still growing my site, but I’ll be considering things like this soon! Thanks for sharing, I’m bookmarking this 🙂

    • May 20, 2015 at 1:43 pm

      Thank you so much, JoAnna – I hope to hear more abut what you’ve implemented and see you back here often!
