Cheat Sheet: 24 Tips for Creating High Converting Lead Magnets – Fast!

24 Tips for Creating High Converting Lead Magnets - Fast!.001

Do you find it hard to get your Lead Magnets to Convert?

Do You Struggle to get more subscribers from your readers?

What is the point of driving all that traffic to your Site if they Don’t Subscribe?

50 Titles Cheat Sheet

Yes! Send Me My Cheat Sheet – “50 Titles To Help You Create Amazing High Converting Lead Magnets” – I want to Improve My Conversions and Get More Sign Ups!

I know I do – or did until I came across an amazing blog Post from Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income Blog (which is here by the way)!  The great thing is it had 241 comments (last time I looked) with masses of informed comments from the folks at Leadpages.

Why did this Resonate?

The SPI Podcast episode was with Clay Collins, Founder of Leadpages.  He was talking about how you create great titles to get your audience sign up to your free giveaway in return for their email address. The problem was the 241 comments which contained amazingly great ideas but took a LONG TIME to go through!

Problem Solved!

I went through them for you and have distilled some of the best ideas into this Post as a guide – How to Create High Converting Titles! (So my Thanks to Pat, Clay and the amazing SPI Community)!

Here is my Cheat Sheet of 24 Tips for Creating High Converting Lead Magnets! – Fast

1. Keep your titles short – condensed titles are more impactful and if under 140 Characters, you can Tweet them too

2. Make Sure You Capture the Key Points in your title:

  • What are you giving away
  • How many points (specific numbers are good)
  • The Price – FREE (demonstration of value)
  • Simple/Easy/Quick
  • Include a Hook – Intrigue or a Benefit
  • Have a Call to Action

3.  Calls to Action are essential – Download, Grab, Claim

4. Types of Lead Magnets

  • Check List – around a specific problem/idea
  • Cheat Sheet
  • Resource Guide
  • A Transcript of a video or a podcast
  • A Quiz, with a link to a download for the answers
  • A Report
  • A Plan
  • A Template
  • A Tool or a System they can use in their business
  • Survival Guide
  •  A Case Study
  • A One Page PDF that breaks down the Essence of your Blog Post
  • Create a Manifesto
  • Buyers Guide

5. Make your offering Specific – make sure they know what they are being offered: number based, ease of use, actionable result!

6. Use Capital Letters for the start of each word to make the sentence stand out more; include a bold colour too – more eye catching; Red or Blue, which is often associated with links

7. Make sure your offer is Evergreen

8. Can you make your title intriguing? How can you “Hook” your reader into wanting to click on your Subscribe Button?

9. Create amazing Graphics to support your Lead Magnet offer – check out the free resource at Canva.com

10. Try to address objections in your title, which will make it more likely that your reader will click on your offer

11. Always split test your title, your description, your button, your colours – but not all at the same time.  This is very easy to do with Leadpages Landing pages as it is built right in – You can find Leadpages here.

12. Consider setting up a separate list for this opt in and then work up a short auto responder sequence, offering more value, tips and downloads, which then ends in an offer to buy from you

13. Vary your lead button Text: “Yes! Send Me My Free Guide Instantly” – but “Sign Up To Our Newsletter” is a bit old hat now!

14. Sometimes emphasise the negative for impact – “10 Reasons Why Your ******* SUCKS!”

15.  In the script before your Lead Button, make sure you explain briefly:

  • What your Lead Magnet is
  • Why they should download it
  • What Benefits it offers them

16. Position your offer at the top and bottom, and for a long post, consider putting a third opt-in in the middle.  The readers who get to the bottom of your post are the ones who are most likely to convert however.

17. Numbered Lists are always a winner – people respond to them

18. Make your titles Engaging, Specific and Relateable

19. Make a Lead Magnet that is Universal and which you can use with any Blog Post

20. If you have an eBook as your lead magnet, offer a chapter and not the whole book, which perhaps your reader can buy from you if they really like it.

21. Pose a Question – a challenge or a problem your reader might be having – and then solve it with the lead magnet

22. Don’t be afraid to offer a discount or a deal in return for signing up and downloading a really valuable lead magnet.  Just remember that you are starting your relationship with this reader and it is often better to offer something for free at this point

23. Becareful how you use the word “Hack” – it means different things to different folks and some of these meanings are not positive.

24. Tone down the use of ALL CAPS in titles on emails as they sometimes trigger spam filters!

Brief Summary of the Course

Did you know that 40% of items sold on Amazon are actually not Amazon’s inventory, but are from small people, one person businesses, just like you and me? Amazing – but true!”

This course from Leading Udemy Course Instructor, Alun Hill, shows you how to create an income stream from selling on Amazon, using the Fulfilled by Amazon system.  If you are looking to set up an commerce business where your suppliers ship straight to Amazon, your products sell to the customers who come to Amazon to buy and every two weeks Amazon sends you a cheque, then this course could be for you.

“You never have to see, store, touch etc the stuff you sell, as Amazon even picks it up direct from the suppliers (over 750,000 suppliers and wholesalers are listed in the course) for you and you can start with just a few dollars”

I have interviewed Alun for the Online Learning Podcast in Episode 061 which you can find here. Alternatively you can listen to the Episode by clicking on the Audio Player at the top of this page.

What I did not Like

Alun has chosen to include a number of videos from Amazon itself some of which I found were superficial and did not impart much useful information.  These were a lot less useful than Alun’s videos.

What I liked

As you can see from the list of the Course content, this is a comprehensive course.  The most difficult part of selling on Amazon is your initial product selection.  While you will still need to do the work here, Alun explains the key steps you need to take and the course contains all the information you need to set up your procurement system.

The Product Listing in Amazon is critical to being seen and being competitive against other sellers.  I found Alun’s explanation of how to do this correctly (Alun is an excellent copywriter) very helpful and inciteful.

The marketing advice which will help you to get reviews and grow your following of loyal customers was information which you would not get from simply following Amazon’s own tuition videos.

Testimonials

Here are some testimonials from Students who have taken the Course:

Excellent and complete course of making it into Amazon FBA

“A complete step by step course from scratch to setup and do your own FBA business. Everything is covered from registering your seller account on amazon to find your products and suppliers online. Important methods to analyze currently selling products and seller on Amazon. Highly recommended.”

Sound principles, not how it works in practice

“Alun is a great speaker and presents well, and perhaps his techniques would work in european markets, but in the US, this is not how the market actually runs. I have had an Amazon Prime membership for over 10 years now since it first launched. I have done a majority of my shopping there since then, and from my experience, the products that actually sell are the ones with the most reviews. The most popular. This course assumes that SEO principles generate sales on Amazon, and from anything I’ve sold, they do not. The only way to compete on Amazon is to tag onto an existing item and undercut prices on the marketplace. That way, hundreds or thousands of reviews go to your product, and you show up as the cheapest. That’s fine and good, but margins are small, and it’s a long term proposition game, not “turn $81 into $4545 in 12 weeks” game. These principles might very well work on eBay, but you don’t know what fees will be until later, so eBay is hard to run as a business on paper. If I build the courage to gamble with $100, I will find out if this has any potential at all. If it turns out I was dead wrong I will sincerely apologize and alter my review, but I don’t believe I am mistaken. All that said, the YouTube courses are fantastic!!”

Very Informative

“Alan, you did a great job. This is a very detailed course, cant believe how much I learned in such a short time. I have been trying to learn on my own for years but I still had so many unanswered questions, now I finally feel confident enough to start my own business. I look forward to putting my skills and ideas to work. Thank You Alan”

Just what I needed

“I had just started getting into selling on Amazon when Alun’s course came along. The timing course not have been better. I have learnt so much already and I am only 25% of the way through the course (two days in). Alun has given me so much information and so many ideas I am buzzing. The sessions are to the point and cram packed full of useful information. No padding here. Alun is what I call a true entertrainer. He knows his stuff, presents it in manageable chunks, makes it logical, but he is also entertaining at the same time. A rare combination. I had also looked at some web based courses on selling on Amazon (I got refunds as I was not satisfied with the quality on offer) and Alun’s course knocks spots of anything else I’ve seen. Well done Alun. I look forward to making a successful business on Amazon with your support.”

Another great course

“Alums courses are always well structured with very clear explanations. Courses are maintained and often expand with further lessons extending there value, I recommend you buy this course!”

Final Thoughts

Setting up an eCommerce business is not easy or straight forward.  You can waste a lot of time and money if you get it wrong.  I have worked through this course and found it particularly helpful in avoiding these pitfalls and in providing a logical step by step process for setting up an FBA – Fulfilled by Amazon” eCommerce Business.

“A Goldmine of Quality Information

“This course is a literal goldmine of information about how to be a better Udemy instructor by providing what the students want to learn and more importantly, how to make data-driven decisions. (as opposed to the emotional decisions that most of us tend to make) John covers so many areas – creating your course, analyzing your competition, etc. and includes deep dive looks at all sorts of things like number of reviews, number of students, pricing of your course. It’s just amazing. When I enrolled in this course, I was looking for the exact answers that John gives, (I needed to “get my bearings” in this new business model called Udemy) and boy does he give great answers! (answers based on data, not emotion)

If you’ve ever wanted to get a more intense view of the Udemy “universe”, along with precision hawk dives to the real meaty parts that instructors have questions about, this is the course to get.” Dave E. Five Stars
