Giving Things Out for Free to Visitors?

29 replies
Hello,

I added a category called "Giveaway" so that I can give out free items like Domain Names, E-books and anything else that is free.

My problem is where can I get such things like ebooks to giveaway?

For the domains I have about 10 that I want to giveaway maybe one every week and more.

I was thinking that maybe a I accept guest posters so they can give things away for free.

What do you think?

    Hey Julio,

    If you write and manage a blog, then you can write your own ebooks - very similar to writing a blog post.
    You can also search google for PLR ebooks related to your niche.

    Good luck.

    It's best to just write your own content. Do some research, interview more experienced, etc.

    There are a ton of free or cheap PLR products available. If you don't want to write your own Id look into getting a membership to a website that hosts thousands of PLR books. Typically memberships only cost a few bucks for lifetime access. You can also use fiverr or just google free plr book and then the niche you need it for. I used to do something similar but I got the PLR's, read them, and re wrote them manually and added a few affiliate links. I then made people share the download page on social media via a plugin before downloading the product. I still make a bit of residual income from that albeit not much anymore.

    Hi Julio,

    Most people who give away free ebooks write it themselves. It doesn't have to be very long it just needs to tie in with your niche and make sure that it provides valuable information.

    You can actually write it yourself, or you can hire someone to write it for you. Just make sure that you know what you want the ebook to contain and that it is a topic that you are well versed in.

    You don't want to just ask anybody to write an ebook for you, give them away to your audience, and then when one of your subscribers asks you about it, you know very little about the topic at hand.

    People download these free ebooks and subscribe to your list, because they trust that you know what you are talking about and that they can learn from you (or be entertained).

    Hope this helps!

    It would probably be best to not be known as the freebie giveaway site. You really only need one high quality product to offer in exchange for an email address.

      I have been planning this out carefully because of that same reason. What I was thinking was give out a domain name maybe one or two weeks apart without saying the dates I will be doing it. I was also thinking about surprise giveways without letting visitors know the time could be at 2:00 PM or 4:00 AM. I'm even thinking about the different types of giveaways like selecting one winner or multiples.

    Hi Julio,

    I would say that all the advice given above is great I would only want to nightlight somethign using an example:

    Imaging there is a Porche Dealer selling a $200.000 car. In his advertising he says that he will be giving away a $10 pen to every person that go to the store.

    Do you think people that is interested in buying a $200.000 car will attracted with this give away?

    I would say, for the giveaway you need to think: Would I be attracted? If I am serious about looking into the item is being advertised, would I like to get the giveway, is it relevant?

    In our example, if the marketing campaign is directed to car collectors, perhaps giving a model of the Lamborgini Aventador would be more appealing and perhaps bring better prospects. Isn't it?

    My point is you will need quality and relevancy to your marketing. These are the 2 keys for that giveaway.

    Quality: Write your giveaway yourself and pass it to a good editor in Upwork.
    Relevancy: What is the product and the market (niche) you are approaching? Make it relevant to them.

    To your Success!

    Why not turn the domain name giveaway into a social sharing contest? There are WordPress plugins that can help you manage this. The more social shares or entrants that are attracted, the more entries someone will get and at the same time it expands your audience.

    I use KingSumo - premium plugin to manage competitions like this.

      I found one that works really good called RewardsFuel.

      When I created my OP I was looking for an alternative because I really don't want to use my blog. I want to create a whole new site because I do own DomainNameGiveway.com I would like to use a html or php site or script.

    I believe the best is to create a quality e-book you write yourself and give it away for free. Could be like 20-30 pages and solve one or more issues in your niche. You can of course use PLRs or other things as inspiration, but I believe the best is to write the book in your own words. It has to have quality content, even though you give it away.

    Hi: If you are planning on giving stuff away on a regular basis and you don't have time to write original content then there are several PLR sites out there. One good one is PLRassassin.com. There is a free area and of course there is a paid area. You decide what's right for you if you want.
    As has been said before, creating your own content is best. But if you don't have time you can go the PLR route as long as you customize the content and don't just buy, copy, and past it.

    Good luck,

    Dan

    Own content writing will be great whether it is blog post, or ebook or anythi9ng else, otherwise how you'll trust that it is original idea, content?

    may be the participants send you copied idea or content then? So its better to do it your own.

    You can find literally anything on the internet for free. You just have to look well.
    Try long tail (so very specific search keywords) and adjust date.

    Also try Google's search types. If you want to find a .PDF for example, you can just search like this:
    inurl: .pdf

    There is some decent PLR I have come across in WSO section. You should be careful though. Can be some garbage here and there as well.

    Also, Tiff Lambert PLR ministore has some PLR that I have purchased that was very good.

    Thank you all for the replies,

    It's been advised about junk.

    I plan reading everything that I decide to give out / or pass along.

    I won't mind passing along someone that someone else wrong ( not as my own ) as long as it's of quality.

    This is a great idea. One of the best ways for people to begin trusting you and your authority is by giving away FREE products and services that work. Once the people see the domain name with your free products and implement the teaching online, they will appreciate the outcome. By receiving a free service that works and makes money, they will come back to your site and begin to purchase products and services that costs money.

    Many times you see Super Affiliates with testimonies from other affiliate marketers on how a product or service that has helped them skyrocket there business tremendously, and many times it started out as a free offer.

    These affiliates sometimes become even more successful than the super affiliates that taught them. They take the teachings, expand upon there own thoughts,ideas and create products and services that work.

    Create your own free giveaways. You will be educating yourself while doing the research and you will be able to answer any questions your readers might have about the content.

    Write your own content, or just shut that portion down.

    One other idea I have used with great effect. Get one fair PLR product, and then break it down into like 4 or 5 or 10 separate 2-5 page reports.... Use the Chapter headlines as titles, and lightly re-write each one. That way you can take one PLR product and make multiple "bite sized" reports that you can give away that people would actually consume (who doesn't have time to go thru a 4 page report that addresses one individual problem/solution). Not to mention the ability to link out to associated affiliate products (or your own). I've had good results doing this...

    Giving away free domain names will be a new one. That type of promotion will have you at like 100,000 visits a month at least depending on the names of the domain and how many you have to give away. That promotion is UNHEARD of.

    I think you will be able to generate a lot of leads, traffic, visitors, things like that because people love free things. The only problem with free is it is a long term passive income play, where as if you was maximizing all of that traffic with a product to sale, then you will make some instant cash upfront and still maybe hang on to the lead for future pushes.

    PLR products are very simple to manage....
    and you can create your first ebook to give away in less than 15 minutes.

    you can find PLR for free too ( check on google and warriorforum)
