Today I want to share something with you that I would consider a bit more of an advanced list building technique. The good news is, it’s actually fairly easy to implement, but it is a little extra work. I promise that it’s well worth the effort.
The idea is to have a series of blog posts on a related theme, all ending in a CTA (call to action) that invites readers to join your list. To entice them to subscribe, you offer them a short report as a lead magnet. That sounds like a lot of writing, doesn’t it? How about a little shortcut – use a PLR Bundle that includes articles or blog posts and a short report. Let me share an example to illustrate.
Let’s say you’re in the diet and weight loss niche. You could grab this Intermittent Fasting PLR bundle which includes 20 articles / blog posts and a short report about using intermittent fasting to lose weight.
You take the short report, add your branding and website information, edit it as you see fit, and convert it to a pdf. Next, you set-up the list part in your autoresponder service. Depending on what makes more sense for your site and your niche, you can either set-up a new list, while also subscribing these readers to your main list, or you can just set up a new opt-in form, along with some tagging to make sure these new subscribers get the lead magnet delivered to them in the welcome email.
Next, you start publishing the PLR articles (rewrite them first – see my challenge post about PLR) and crafting a CTA at the end that invites readers to subscribe to your list and get the short report as a thank you.
Not only is this a great way to grow your list in general, but you also have a very targeted list of subscribers who you know are interested in Intermittent Fasting. This then allows you to interact with this subset of your list on the topic, send them more content and of course, product offers as well.
You can then rinse and repeat this technique with another PLR bundle. This works for any niche. Just keep an eye out for appropriate PLR article bundles to put it into action.
