Interested in the most recent Shrimpmukkah Freebies? Check out the list from 2022 here.
There are plenty of gift-buying guides out there. I thought I’d add one that’s a gift-getting guide. Free gifts, for you. All they cost is your email address.
Whether you’re shopping for help with:
- Getting your business in the media…
- A LinkedIn bio that attracts clients…
- Writing copy that converts ideal clients…
- Or even planning your own time off….
You’ll find it here. You’ll also find new virtuosos to follow, learn from, collaborate with, and, of course, stalk.
And if you’re looking for examples of lead magnets / examples of opt-in landing pages to inspire your own, you’ve just found Email Opt-In Nirvana.
(Not everyone’s version of paradise, but we’re not everyone, now—are we?)
Why should you have a lead magnet or opt-in freebie (same dif) to build your list?
So you can harness the glorious power of email marketing. Not exaggerating!
The most important thing I ever learned in online business came from my mentor and Copy Cure partner, Marie Forleo. She told me, “It’s all about the email list. The gold is in the list.” (It took at least seven years for that to fully click.) When I was making my first website, she asked, “What’s your opt-in?”
She explained how, to build a subscriber list, you offer a free thing. Something other than just “sign up for my newsletter” or “sign up for weekly tips ‘n’ tricks” because, in exchange for their email address, people want something immediate. “Weekly inspiration in your inbox” rarely does the trick anymore, unless you’re famous…for your inspiration. It’s gotta be something good.
These Shrimpers know that. They’ve all created free things well worth signing up for. And they’re stellar emailers, so you’ll want to keep hearing from them in your inbox. Here’s what we’ve got.
Presenting…the Shrimpmukkah Freebie Fest:
A roundup of the best opt-in freebies (aka lead magnets) from Shrimpers in my mastermind, Shrimp Club.
