Do you ever log into your email system, excited to see how much your list has grown from your latest freebie opt-in…only to see that the needle has barely moved?
It’s so annoying, right?
You put all that effort into building a really cool lead magnet.
You followed all the advice you got on how to create something your ideal clients would love.
You shared it all over social media.
You ran some Facebook ads to it.
But even with everything you’re doing to get people to opt-in…you’re still getting less than 50 people a month signing up for it and joining your list.
And if you can’t grow your list, who are you going to market your programs and courses to?
So then you think about creating a different lead magnet…a better freebie…
And you spend hours on that…only to have similar results.
Yup…I know this vicious cycle all too well because it used to be the story of my life not too long ago.
When I was just starting out in my coaching business, I created 8 different freebie opt-ins over the course of 5 months (some of them were live webinars, some were PDF downloads, some were teleseminars)…
And, how many people did I have on my list after that sh*t-ton of effort?
Not kidding: 247
Totally serious: probably about 45-50 of them were friends and family.
That means I got roughly 200 people in 5 months, using 8 different lead magnets.
And believe me when I tell you that I was sharing those opt-in links EVERYWHERE.
OUCH! It was REALLY painful.
Here’s what was even more painful…I only signed 2 clients from all that work.
And I couldn’t understand what the problem was…
I was doing my research on what my ideal clients wanted…and then I was creating it…and giving it away for free…
That’s what you’re supposed to do, right?
Right…except that I was missing a BIG piece of the puzzle.
Sure…if you look at what I was doing, it was textbook perfect for how to grow your list and book clients.
And I talk to so many coaches/consultants who are doing the exact same thing…and wondering why the hell it isn’t working.
And it’s NOT their fault.
They’re stuff is awesome…they’re giving away great advice/tips/teaching to help their ideal clients.
The problem is that they’re doing what EVERYONE is doing…and getting lost in the sea of sameness.
Because let’s face it…every single coach/consultant has some kind of freebie offering…most of them are posting on social media…and as you’ve probably noticed…they’re all running FB ads now, too.
So then why does it work for some of them and not others?
It’s because the ones who are making it work have got the piece of the puzzle that’s missing.
You see the REAL STRATEGY is all happening behind the scenes.
Yes, you can create a really cool freebie, you can share it everywhere, and run ads to it.
But until you have a real strategy in place for how to: a) get people to sign up for it, and b) how to convert them to clients…it’s going to be a slow struggle.
The good news is that there’s a really simple system that works to grow your list like crazy and consistently sign clients.
It’s so simple that now I have just one lead magnet and in the last 6 months it’s grown my list by THOUSANDS and booked me 142 discovery calls (that’s 24 calls a month).
You don’t need to keep struggling along, growing your list at a snail’s pace, and wondering if you’ll ever get fully-booked.
So let’s fix this.
Just click the link below, tell me a little about your business, and let’s book a strategy session.
On that call, I’ll map out for you exactly how you can implement this simple system (easily and quickly) in your business, so you’re growing fast and finally making the money you want.
You can do this and I’ll show you how 🙂
P.S. I spent a ton more time and effort creating 5 more freebie opt-ins before I finally figured this out and simplified the whole thing. Now, I have 1 free offer, I’m working less, and earning more than ever. That should be you: http://alexbratty.com/applynow
