Don't Give It All Away

We all love a freebie.

It's great when you get an email with a link to a free download.

Or you visit a website full of loads of free offers.

And it's also good if you can find a few free things to offer your website visitors and email subscribers.

Just make sure that you don't give away too much. Otherwise your website visitors and email subscribers will come to expect it.

They'll think that everything you offer them is free.

This will make them not only reluctant to pay you money for something, but it can sometimes make them hostile.

I fell for this myself years ago when I was just getting started writing online.

I searched high and low for freebies I could give away on my website to attract more visitors.

But all it attracted was freebie-seekers.

I thought I was doing well getting so much traffic to my site and hundreds of people signing up for my emails.

But I wasn't making much money.

So I removed most of the free stuff and started offering products for sale.

And strangely enough, I found that people valued products they paid for much higher than the free stuff.

And many became repeat customers.

And speaking of freebies (which I don't do often), here's a link to a free 30-day planner to help you start the New Year your most productive and the most profitable.
