A lead magnet is a helpful marketing tool for almost any business. It is a great offer to help you build your email list and build leads for your business. What makes an effective or good lead magnet?
Honestly, it’s the answer you often get - a good lead magnet is something people find valuable enough to sign up and exchange their email in order to get.
Lead Magnet Samples
These are a number of my favorite lead magnets to offer your community. Can you expand on this list?
What Is A Good Lead magnet?
A better answer is a good lead magnet will provide information to your prospect or customer that will help them transition to the next stage… of something. It is a document or piece of content they can use in their business or life to bring benefit to their journey.
You want your lead magnet to be free and easy to deliver to your target market. It shouldn’t be huge and overwhelming either.
I offer my target market - agencies and businesses that want to create copy or content for their business - a way to reuse this content. It’s an outline of options they can apply to the written content or copy I have made for them.
It’s about taking my market on a journey to the next step. It might be about saving time for them. They have a lot of content to create - how can I make it easier for them? They also have a lot of content, what could they do with it other than the one original thing we created?
Lead Magnet Strategy
Most every business could benefit from having a lead magnet. We recently talked about your business funnel and how you probably have a funnel even if you don’t know it. If you have sold your work you have a funnel. Even if it’s crude. (You can refine the funnel and expand on the funnel as you build your business with a lead magnet and landing capture page.)
A lead magnet can be a very vital part of your sales funnel. It can be a key player in moving your target market through the sales process.
You can offer lead magnets during different stages of your prospect’s sales or “thinking about it” journey to encourage them to move forward with their decision.
What Is A Lead Magnet In Marketing?
If you have a prospect that is interested in your message or what you have to say about your product or service but isn’t ready to sign up for whatever reason, a good lead agent could address that objection right upfront. It could be a webinar talking about how hiring you would benefit them and make their life better and here are some tips to get you started before you hire anyone.
It’s important to be creative when working with your lead magnet. It’s intended to give value to your prospect so they can be better without hiring you or even speaking with you yet.
Maybe people will take this lead magnet and nothing will come of it.
“50% of marketers who start using lead magnets report higher conversion rates.” - WPForms
So that’s huge! This stuff works.
Even if you have to make a lead magnet and revise it over time to find what works for your business, It’s a great option to try if you haven’t already. If it’s not working, it’s good to try something different. Maybe you haven’t been getting the word out and sharing the fact that you have this helpful lead magnet often enough?
