Why lead magnets are so powerful

See, there's this little secret around how the most successful online businesses attract customers…

They give away helpful resources, so-called lead magnets, in exchange of their customers’ contact information.

Lead magnets are like mysterious sirens, drawing in innocent sailors (or in this case, prospects) towards their ship (or sales funnel).

Except in the business case, everyone benefits:

Your prospects get useful information, and you get their attention and contact information.

Common examples of lead magnets are:

  • Ebooks

  • Checklists

  • Email courses

Lead magnets are so powerful because they make your prospects an offer they can’t refuse.

They increase your conversion rates for practically everything:

  • Newsletters

  • Sales calls

  • Getting your nephew a role in a Hollywood movie

For example, what sounds more compelling to you?

a) “sign up for my newsletter!”

b) “Learn how to produce a week’s worth of content in 1 hour with my free ebook - enter your email & I’ll send it to you”

Alternative a) sounds like a chore, while b) sounds like a no-brainer offer.

Now, what makes a world-class lead magnet?

The best lead magnets to at least one of two things for your customer:

1) Solve a gut-wrenching problem they have.

2) Help them snatch something they're drooling after.

It’s not that hard - it’s like dating...

…but without the awkward silence.

WHY LEAD MAGNETS ARE SO POWERFUL

  • Increase your conversions

  • Attracts highly interested prospects

  • Feeds your sales funnel or email list

But creating lead magnets can take tens of hours, days, or even weeks.
