Offer Something Free at Your Blog or Web Site

by Mary Emma Allen on October 30th, 2008

Free Classes, E-book, Bookmarks 

In addition to giveaways, something that’s become very popular at blogs and web sites nowadays, you can offer other items to viewers.  These might include free e-mail classes or something you can download and print off, such as free e-books, bookmarks or activity sheets.

Lindsay, blogger at Writing for Your Wealth, where she writes about monetizing your blogs, now offers e-mail classes on this topic. 

Other writers and bloggers have e-books you can download for free.  Often they may sell e-books and print books as well. 

Kathleen Walls mentions free cookbooks you can download.  I participated in one of these that Katy organized.  Currently she’s putting together another cookbook focusing on her Florida guidebook series. 

Children’s author/illustrator Jan Brett has a deligtful number of free items for her readers on her web site.

What types of freebies have you offered on your blog or web site?

    Hi Mary Emma,

    Thanks for the plug. :) Offering something free is great, especially if you’re trying to get people to sign up for your newsletter. You’ve got to be able to answer the “what’s in it for me?” question for your visitors!
