Massive Benefits of Using Done For You Lead Magnet Templates

When it comes to your business, one of your biggest wins will be making the decision to build an email mailing list. The second biggest win will be growing said list. But with so much to do, the last thing you want to do is add "design an awesome lead magnet" to your Monday morning plans. Yep, I understand. So, I want to talk about how lead magnet templates may be a game-changer.

My most recent products are three sets of Done for you Lead Magnet Template Bundles. Not my usual type of product. But I created them because I know they'll help people grow their businesses.
 
A few weeks ago, I saw two things that made me nervous.
 
The first was in abook. The author happily discussed that 96% of their traffic (170000 hits per month) came from Pinterest. Great, but not.

The second was on a random Facebook group. Someone had published a few products on Etsy or Amazon (I don't remember which) and they were waiting for sales.
 
I'll add a disclaimer before I go on: I've been in both of these positions before, and nothing is wrong with either of them.
 
Except, that is, the reliance on things they do not own.
 
Pinterest owns Pinterest. And if they decide to change everything, 96% of 170000 hits a month is so much traffic to lose.
 
Also, unless you have your SEO spot on, waiting for sales on Etsy or Amazon could take a while. It isn't fun to wait, either.
 
But, if you build an email list, you do own it. Other than something ridiculously devastating, nothing can take it away from you.
 
Here is the best thing about an email list. Have a new product? Could you send an email about it? A new blog post? Could you send an email about it? Need traffic to something? Yes, you can send an email about it: no waiting and definitely no relying on things you don't own. Trust me; you can thank me later.
 
Sounds great, right? So, how do you build an email list?
 
Well, first up, let's take a quick look at what precisely a lead magnet is and how they can help you grow your business. Then we'll look at the benefits of lead magnet templates.

What is a lead magnet?

Put simply; a lead magnet is anything that helps you grow your mailing list.
 
Lead magnets reward people for sharing their email address. This helps you to turn more random visitors into qualified leads so you can grow your business.
 
Once people are on your email list, you are free to contact them and turn them into dedicated fans that buy everything you sell.
 
I would rather spend 100 hours building an email list than posting on Twitter or Facebook. I have my reasons, but they are for another post.
 
Now, in my opinion, a person's email address is precious. This is important for two reasons:

  1. People don't want 1000s of random emails every day. So, the offer of "updates" is unlikely to get people signing up these days. You need to stand out. It would be best if you offered something they want or need. Otherwise, they will not hand over their email address.
  2. Your subscribers do not need to let you into your inbox. If they don't like your emails or you only send realms of links they are not interested in, they are well within their rights to unsubscribe. So, I highly recommend treating your subscribers with respect, love, and gratitude. You are in their inbox because people allow you to be. If you remember this, people will become your biggest fans.

All that being said, building an email list is an ongoing job that you have to keep on top of. But the benefits using lead magnets are massive. Here's some of them:

benefits using lead magnets:

  • Showcases your knowledge and establishes you as an expert.
    What do you know that other people want to know? Or what do you create that others need in their lives?
  • Pretty much the same as above. But what exactly is your target audience looking for? How can you attract them to you?
  • A lead magnet increases reputation by offering extra value to your audience.
    The best way to build an email list is to provide people with something of value, for free.
  • A lead magnet is a great way to start a stable relationship with your visitors/clients/customers.
    You can email people who sign up for your lead magnet about anything you feel is relevant to their interests. For example, with my The Happy Journals PLR Club list, I share my experiences about starting an online business - the good, the bad, the funny. Hopefully, this allows my subscribers to get to know me and know they are not alone.
  • A lead magnet is the number one way to gather visitor/client/customer information (you can ask for more than just their email)
    The everyday things to collect are names and emails. But if you're a coach or offer services, you can give away free sessions & gather phone numbers.
  • A lead magnet has no added cost (unlike ads) and is active 24/7
    Once you've created your lead magnet and set up the sign-up, that's it. It will always be active. You can get sign ups any time of the day.

Now, I know what you're thinking: but I'll need a website to have a lead magnet set up.
 
Not necessarily. I do always recommend having a website as part of your business. It is another thing that you own. If you have a website and an email list, they are yours. Yes, people might stop visiting or unsubscribe. But on the whole, they are yours. In reality, these are the only two places you want people to end up.
 
But, in reality, a website is not necessary. You'll want to check out my free landing page builder blog post for more on this.

What are the benefits of lead magnet templates?

As I said, I have just added three sets of Done for you Lead Magnet Template Bundles to my store.
 
Typically, I only sell PLR journal templates. But putting together the lead magnet templates gave me a ton of pleasure purely because I know how useful they will be to people.
 
So, let's get right into why a lead magnet template could be so beneficial to you.

By using lead magnet templates you'll save yourself ton time.

We all know that time is an important thing when you're trying to earn money in your business. If you have written content (like PLR content or something you've written), ideally you just want to be able to paste it into something you already have. This saves you having to design it yourself.

Lead magnet templates usually mean you only have a small learning curve: created by professionals so that it is easy to edit and modify. 

Most importantly, they tend to be created by people who have years of experience and have tested a lot. I'll give you a visual example.

In my Done for you Lead Magnet Template Bundles, you get a set of five matching Pinterest Pins. I have tested many Pins, getting one of my accounts to 2 million views a month (unfortunately not my PLR club account).

To check my designs, I often put them through a tool called Attention Insight. This tool uses AI to assess design element visibility with 90% accurate attention heatmaps.

The key to converting Pinterest Pins is eye-catching images and easily readable text. So, out of interest, I put one of the pins in my lead magnet bundles through Attention Insight. I did change the text & image to make it a fair test. Check out the results:

As you can see from the heat maps, people's eyes are likely to be attracted to exactly the areas I wanted them to be. And the text is 94% clear. This is pretty much perfect. Well, it definitely makes for a high converting Pinterest pin, that's for sure!

By lead magnet templates, you'll have no need to learn how to use complicated or expensive design programs.

With my lead magnet templates, all you need is PowerPoint.
PowerPoint is a program that many people have but don't use to its full potential. In fact, my templates are intelligent templates, too.
 
You get templates with images and the same templates without images. They are set up in such a way that any image can be dropped into the templates & land in precisely the right places. NO image resizing necessary!
