Easy Technique to Generate Online Leads and Sales
First of all if you don’t have a lead capture mechanism on your site you’re missing out on potential sales and leads. A lead capture mechanism can be as simple as an opt-in box to your mailing list.
Now for the technique. Let’s assume you created an opt-in box to get people on your mailing list. Why would I want to sign up for your mailing list? Normal reasons are coupons, exclusive discounts, more information, etc…
In addition to that we can also give out a free report or ebook. I know you don’t want to write an ebook. I don’t either. That’s why I’m going to tell you how to create an ebook in 5 – 10 minutes.
First things first. Fire up Word or any word processing program you might have installed.
Second go to article directories. There are tons of them, but here are a few to get you started:
Third: Search for your topic. For example you do plumbing in Wall, NJ, so you search for plumbing.
Here are some of the great articles I’ve found:
A Short Guide for Plumbing Emergencies
Plumbing Tips – From Thawing Frozen Pipes to General Pipe Repairs
Plumbing Problems and Solutions
Inexpensive Bathroom Remodeling Secrets
Electric showers: Making your bath economical
Emergency Plumbing Service: How To Choose The Best
Plus there are literally hundreds of other articles. I found these articles in literally two minutes.
The good thing about these article directories is you can use their articles, all you have to do is leave the author information in.
Fourth: Create a cover page in Word (make sure to include your contact information).
Fifth: Pick your favorite articles and copy and paste them into Word, right after your cover page.
Sixth: Use a PDF converter to convert your document into PDF format. Here are a few free PDF converters:
Seventh: Relax and take a nap. You’re done. You’ve created a good ebook with tips you can give your future clients in literally five minutes.
You don’t have to use this technique to create ebooks and reports, if you get stuck on what to write to your mailing list or are in a rush to get a mailing out you can do the same thing for your mailing list.
You can also use the articles on your sites for fast, keyword rich, free content.
