How to Get Email Subscribers with Viral Reports

Make money on the webThere’s been a flurry of listbuilding courses released recently but I don’t think I have seen any mention of using viral reports as a way to get new email subscribers.

In my last post I wrote about some strategies for content marketing and creating a free report from your content was one of them but you can take it one step further and make it go viral and get more email subscribers.

What is a viral report?

Creating My Free Training Page

One tip I learned from Marc about another way of getting subscribers to opt-in to my list was to create a “Free Training” page on my blog. The idea is to use it as another way to get people to my squeeze page for my free report lead magnet.

To do this I had to create a new page by going into Pages in my WordPress dashboard and creating a page with the title Free Training. This should have added another tab to the navigation bar at the top of my blog but it didn’t!

Announcing “Traffic Deluge” – My New Free Report!

making money onlineAt long last I have written my own free report to help with my list building. Up until now I have been promoting other people’s stuff to get sign ups but I had always intended to write my own.

The problem has always been what topic to choose. There are so many niches related to making money online but after thinking long and hard about it and doing a bit of lurking in the forums I decided that getting traffic is one of the main problems that many internet marketers face.
