There are a LOT of free giveaways in the Internet marketing niche right now… So many, that we tend to ignore them.
I want you to be smarter than that. I want you to look at these free giveaways not just as a source of product that you can use personally to improve your business…
I want you to look at these giveaways as:
1) A source of excellent private label rights product that you can download, re-title, create new graphics for, do some minor editing, and then sell to a market that’s NEVER seen these products before.
Ninety-nine percent of the free products GIVEN away during these events will be products that with just a little effort you CAN turn into marketable products.
These giveaways include products that span niches such as personal development, health, pets, relationships, marketing, etc., so there a good chance you’ll find something that you CAN use regardless of your niche.
2) A source of excellent BONUSES. When you are selling affiliate products, often your customers will be comparing which affiliate offers the best bonuses. You can take a few of these free products and offer them as bonuses when they get the affiliate product through you.
The SECRET here is that you need to examine the products closely, and then do a good job describing the BENEFITS of the bonuses. Don’t just list them… tell your customers why they need and want them!
You can also take the PLR stuff and create totally unique bonuses.
A real world example of how I did this (outside of internet marketing) can be seen on my cooking website at: http://Chitterlings.com/cookbook.html
That webpage sells a cookbook that is currently sold out in the print version. That’s how effective that sales page is.
As you read that web page, you’ll see that I offer a bonus of 38 PDF cookbooks when they buy the main cookbook. ALL of the PDF cookbooks included as a bonus were GIVEN to me with free resale rights!
3) Take several of these products with private label rights or resale right and offer them in a bundle of related products, at an irresistible price. Using a script such as Rapid Action Profits, you can even launch your OWN affiliate program.
By doing this, you not only sell the products that were given to you (because you know how to present them in an attractive light) but you also get OTHERS to sell them for you… sending you a steady stream of new customers, website traffic, and subscribers.
To locate free giveaways that I recommend, just visit my blog, where I frequently list the ones that I’ve examined and can confidently recommend.
As you look over the free gifts offered in these giveaway, ask yourself if you need each of those gifts, but also ask if you can use them in any of the three ways that I just described.
Simple isn’t it?
If you are not familiar with Rapid Action Profit, as a way to launch your own affiliate program inexpensively, it’s a script that you install on your website.
Rapid Action Profits makes it very easy to have an affiliate program that actually grows itself. Simply have a link to your affiliate program on your download page, or inside your product. That way only a few affiliate are all you need to recruit, and then the product itself can recruit hundreds more for you 🙂
So, go ahead and download the free stuff offered in some of those free giveaway. When you actually have a plan, prior to visiting one of those sites, you see those free gifts in an entirely different light 🙂
