I thought I would try to add a little value to the forum for some. Not so much for some others.
This is a tactic that is so simple even a beginner can quickly implement it.
This is not my invention and it's not a "secret" method as many people know about it. This is for those who don't yet. You may get some "extra" sales with very little additional effort.
I don't remember where I first heard of this but I've been using it for years.
I call it "Read Me First" becuase that's the title I use for it.
It's very simple. If you are delivering digital files as a freebie or paid product, you add a .pdf to the .zip file that is being downloaded.
It doesn't have to be anything special. It can be a paragraph or two on a single page. It's the content that's important.
In your "Read Me First" .pdf you write a blurb about a product or service related to the main download. If you are offering an ebook about outsourcing (for example) you might include a blurb and link to an affiliate product like an outsourcing course or a freelance platform. You could do the same with another product of your own. You could even link to another marketer's squeeze page and sell "funnel clicks."
You should also experiment with different titles for your file. "Read Me First" has worked best for me.
Get creative and you might find a simple source of extra sales.
