Hi Folks

Giving away PLR products as bonuses or freebies for getting people
to opt in to your list edited with your links sounds like a great way
to get long term traffic to your sites.
 
You can give them  away with master resale rights to the receiver
so that they would be encouraged to distribute to other people.

I have not done this yet but this type of viral marketing sounds like
a good way to get traffic.

Takes some time to do  but well worth it.

Before  I recommend this marketing method to other people, is there anyone
who has actually done this with good results ?

Best Regards

Dave  T.

Thanks Lisa

With your validation now I can talk about this with confidence.

You know how it is with so much misinformation on the net.

P.S.
Doing this will be one of my next task after I finish setting up
my blog. I know , I know it's taking me forever.

I agree, it works well. I would edit it though, maybe make a new cover ect. Just my thoughts. It sure can cut down product production time.

Hi Randy

Welcome to the Ablake Forum.

That's why I posted this topic so that I could get a confirmation that
this method works for getting traffic.

Having not done this yet I wanted to make sure that this is an effective
strategy.

There is so much information on the net I think it's important to try and
get confirmation about something before you decide to run with it.

It's especially true when you write about it in blogs or forums.

Your credibility is at stake.

Best Regards

Yes, is the correct response to both of those statements, as has already been said.

Just be careful that you don't build lists of freebie seekers who will never buy from you. Start making some paid offers to list members soon after they sign up. Even if it is on the back of something that you again give away free. If you don't do that, then when you post your first sales offer (that is, you try to sell something to your list on mass), you risk the prospect that many members will unsubscribe and/or send you unpleasant emails. Indeed, some may file spam complaints. It's a sad fact of life. Your subscribers will get used to getting everything free and will then become upset when expected to pay for things.

You (and the rest of us on the forum) are looking to build lists of buyers (customers and clients) not names on a list or lists that cost us money to maintain, yet bring in no, or little revenue. So "train" your list members to expect valuable and beneficial offers from you.

I hope that this post does not sound too harsh, or indeed negative, because the methods outlined here do work. I just wanted to mention the potential downside, if the methods are not properly followed up and developed in order to maintain and continue to build a healthy and profitable list, or lists.

Hey Jeff

Thanks for the warning. I came to the same conclusion about giving
away to many freebies myself.

Some one starting out can make that costly mistake that you described.

It's OK to give something of value to get people to opt in to your list.
As a matter of fact, people expect something.

It could be a report , a 6 day email course, an ezine, anything but it
must have value.

But once folks are on your list then your email campain should be for
the ultimate purpose of selling. Not giving away free stuff.

Some people have nothing better to do then search for free stuff.

Those are not the kind of people you want to grow your list with.

Thanks Jeff for bringing up this very important point.

Dave T.

That depends on the nature of your list and of your affiliate programs. There are always programs out there that will pay you to direct people to their "free" giveaways (and from there to their OTOs and the like). A few of my friends make pretty good money that way from "freebie hunters".

Are you refering to IFW sites ?   

(Incentive free web sites)

Yes, that is correct Dave, I agree with you 100%.

Do keep in mind though (and from your postings, I'm sure that you will), you must constantly provide your list(s) with valuable and relevant information of good quality (in order to retain them as loyal subscribers). Keep up your relationship with your list by maintaining your subscribers' trust, in particular by only offering products and/or services of relevance (to them) and of good quality. Preferably only  promote those products/services that you (or a trusted close associate) have used personally and can comment upon and recommend to your subscribers with confidence.

You mention:

It could be a report , a 6 day email coarse, an ezine, anything but it
must have value.

Personally I would go with the ezine or produce a regular newsletter. A six day email, in my opinion, should only be used to market a specific item, and/or to lead your prospect to signing up to your permanent mailing list.

Additionally, I would not be tempted to promote the latest and greatest high ticket item(s) to your list either. These are the one's normally driven by videos initially and marketed by many of the "gurus" from time to time (and quite frequently, it seems, these days). Keep in mind that your subscribers will almost certainly be subscribed to many other lists, including those of the "gurus" and most of those "gurus" will be better known, have much larger marketing budgets, more bonuses and JV deals to offer as sweeteners to buy, than you. So the chances are that you be likely only to make very limited (if any) sales by offering such items.

In sum, I would not be tempted to compete with the big hitters 'head on' and directly offer subscribers the same products or services that they do (even if I was working the same market segment). Many of your list members (who are also members of other lists, as mentioned above) will be so inundated with emails about that "big offer" that instead of reading your email/newsletter, they immediately perceive your offer as a sales pitch and that could either damage your reputation in their eyes or even cause them to unsubscribe.

Try to make your list(s) a bit different from the rest and ensure that every subscriber knows who you are and how to contact you.

Regards,
Jeff Henshaw.

No, not really. But definitely some of the affiliate offers they use. And some others that specifically prohibit their use on IFW sites. Mostly, they make it a point to attract freebie seekers to their lists, often by advertising the list as something like a "Free Offer of the Week Club".

Others just select offers that fit well with the theme of their list, and present them in a relevant and attractive way.

Of course PLR can be used as something give away and something to sell. The give away could  be used as an upsell device to a paid product. Maybe a give away pdf could be used to sell up to an audio or video version. A give away product could be only part of a bigger package, which is paid.

I agree, don't want to only give away, but it's a good tactic for getting them in the funnel.

I also think getting your name/business out there is important and a building momentum for future customers and sales and plr can be a quick easy way.

PLR can also be a great start point or research for creating your own paid products, rather than completely from scratch.

Yup I agree.  I'm not even going to try and compete with the  big boy's.
I'll just get clobbered.

But I have something that none of the big boy's have that I feel will put
me in an advantage.

I have me !

Nobody else has me.

So I will strive to be unique and original to provide good quality products
and value in my communications to my customers.
