Steal These 17 Lead Magnet Ideas

For the past few years now, we hear people saying that email is dead.

Well, I have news for you. It’s not.

Email is still one of the best ways to build relationships with your audience. 

Yes, open rates have gone down. But there are different ways to increase your open rates.

And one of the best ways shouldn’t come as a shock to you.

It’s using a lead magnet to build your email list.

For this episode, I’ll share with you two things. The first are the 6 characteristics of a great lead magnet. 

A great lead magnet is one that:

  1. Solves a specific problem your audience has
  2. Gives a quick win 
  3. Gives solutions in the format that aligns to how your audience consumes your content
  4. Overdelivers on the quality of the content
  5. Is a logical step towards your offer
  6. Builds trust and respect with your ‘perfect person’

The lead magnet of your choice should check all these boxes. 

The second thing you’ll be getting from this episode is a valuable resource you can use for the next 2 years. 

I’m giving 17 lead magnet ideas that you can try for your business. Out of these 17 ideas, pick one that aligns with your business and your audience. 

Don’t take all of them, and try to implement them in a week. That’s definitely not what I’m suggesting.

So in this episode, I’m giving you a whole bunch of lead magnet ideas that you can swipe, steal, and implement in your business.
