Everyone loves freebies, right?
A great way to get more readers to flock to your blog is to give them free things. The catch is that free gifts must be relevant and useful to your reader. Consider your blog posts and resource pages (if you have them) freebies, too—those posts and pages should always be of some value to your readers, and you give those away for free!
Other types of great freebies are highly-useful items that would make your reader’s life easier in some way. If you’re an interior design blogger, for example, you might create a printable room design worksheet or furniture buying guide. These kinds of things are entirely relevant to your blog, totally useful to your readers, and make for great free downloads.
Other great things to offer include exclusive audio, video, or software downloads like apps or plugins. Be creative, but always remember to brand your free downloads and use them to drive traffic back to your site (or to collect email addresses—something useful to you).
Blogger Babes provides many free resources to bloggers, but our best example is the Ultimate Blogging Binder. We wanted to create a great gift that would solve one of the most common problems bloggers face—staying organized and focused on a day-to-day basis. We spent hundreds of hours researching the many qualities a great blog binder should have and finally created an amazing binder that we were not only very proud of, but also used daily ourselves as well! If you haven’t picked up your copy of our Blogging Binder, check it out now—it’s free. 😉
But this is just 1 of 50 things you and your blog need to attract readers. See the rest when you buy our comprehensive eGuide now!
