Everyone says the money is in the list so….How do you build that list?
Who doesn’t like something for nothing? Why not give people something they want to get for free? Your Free report can be used to pre-sell your products and show your customers you affiliate offers. The other purpose of A free viral report should be to build your mailing list.
Why should you have a mailing list? Because if you are in a direct sales situation that does not allow you to pre-sell, let alone sell the products and services featured in your free report, then at least you should be to able to collect leads. In short, if you cannot convert the reader into a buyer, you should at lease convert them into a subscriber.
In that manner, you can still follow up with your reader on future offers or contact your lead personally with your offer and possibly have a chance at converting him or her into your customer.
One of the few success factors in viral marketing of your free report is quality. If your readers find your information worth sharing, and you encourage them to do so by giving them the right to give your report away for free, you will be able to have your name, status and links within the report passed around without any effort on your part – simply because others are willing to do so for you!
