Are you struggling to build your list because you are not sure what you should give away to your subscribers?
Well, here are 5 easy lead magnets you can create in less than 30 minutes.
1. Compile a List of Youtube Videos
Simply go to Youtube and search for 5 to 10 videos that are relevant to your niche.
For example, if you are in the keto diet niche, you can search for 5 videos that cover a different aspect of keto dieting.
The first video can be a general video about what the keto diet is or the dos and don’ts of the keto diet.
The second video can be about delicious and easy to prepare keto diet recipes.
The third video can be about simple exercises they can do.
The fourth video can be about how to stick to a diet plan and not give up.
Of course, the videos don’t necessarily have to be directly related to weight loss. They can also be indirectly related.
For example, the fifth video can be about how to create a vision board.
Use your creativity here. Think outside of the box.
So once you compile the list of videos, you can create a pdf.
The first page of the pdf can be a short thank you message with a link to the product that you are promoting.
The second page of the pdf will be the URL of the videos you have compiled. You should also write a short description of each video and why you are recommending them.
This shouldn’t take you too long to create.
2. Compile a List of Books
Try to find a list of 5 to 10 books directly or indirectly related to your niche.
You can use the same ideas mentioned above to find the right books for your audience.
You can easily find these books on Amazon. Make sure the books have plenty of good reviews.
On Amazon, you are usually allowed to look into the book and check out the table of content as well as some sample chapters.
This will help you have a good idea of what the book is about.
So when you are compiling the book list, you can give a brief description of what the book is about.
You should also take a look at the reviews of the book, especially the one-star and five-star reviews.
This will help you understand your audience better and help you come up with a great hook for your lead magnet.
3. Create a Checklist
A checklist can be just one or two pages long.
Depending on your niche, it can be a list of 5 to 10 things you need to do or even things that you should not do.
For example, if you are in the “how to get your ex back” niche.
You can create a checklist of 5 things you must not do if you want to get your ex back.
One quick tip here.
You can even consider calling your checklist a “cheat sheet”.
The fact is, human beings are inherently lazy. They are always attracted by shortcuts.
When you call it a “cheat sheet”, it conveys the idea that there is a shortcut.
That can help you attract more subscribers.
4. Use Private Label Rights (PLR)
There are many ebooks in various niches that come with private label rights and you can get them for a very low price.
For PLR materials, you can usually make substantial changes to the content. You can even use it as it is. Before making any changes, make sure you read the license carefully to double-check what you can or cannot do.
If the license allows you to do so, I suggest that you try to create a unique book cover for the ebook. You may even want to change the title to something more catchy. This will help you stand out from the crowd who may be using the same PLR material.
You can easily create a 2D book cover using Canva. Once you have your design, you can just go to Google to search for “free 3d Ecover creator” and turn your 2D design into a 3D Ecover.
5. Just Link Directly to the Video Sales Letter
Sometimes, you don’t even have to create a lead magnet. If the product you are promoting comes with a video sales letter, the video itself can be a lead magnet.
You don’t even have to reinvent the wheel or come up with new ideas yourself.
You can usually just take the headline of the video sales letter and use it as the headline of your squeeze page.
So once people opt-in, they are taken directly to the video sales letter.
Here is one quick tip for you.
You want to make sure that the design of your squeeze page matches the design of the video sales letter if possible.
For example, if the video sales letter is on a pink color page, then you want to make sure that your squeeze page has a similar color theme so that it is congruent.
That can help you improve your conversion rate slightly.
I hope you find these 5 lead magnet ideas helpful. With any of these 5 ideas, you should have no problem coming up with a high-quality lead magnet within 30 minutes or at most 1 hour.
Obviously, having a good lead magnet is only the first step.
After your subscribers join your list, you still need to have an automated system to turn your subscribers into paying customers.
