Today we’re going to show you a really quick and easy way to build your email subscriber list by giving away free, ready-made products.
You see, you don’t have to spend ages writing PDF reports, I’ll show you how you can make a new product from scratch in less than 2 minutes.
This technique is great for testing new niches. But of course once you know there’s an active user base, do invest some time in creating your 100% original freebies for your subscribers. This is just a great way to test the water before you decide if the niche is really worthwhile.
OK so let’s get started right now and open your internet browser to head over to ezinearticles.com.
Now scroll down to “advanced search” on the left hand side.
Change the word count to “greater than”.. I’d use at least 500 words, but you can limit it to whatever you like.
OK next enter your search term, if you’re in the “horticulture niche”, type in “horticulture”, as you can see, in this example I’m going to search for articles that relate to that niche.
Now you’ll want to spend a little bit of time checking the articles and only select the ones that you know are of a high quality.
Once you’ve chosen a few, it’s time to paste them, including the resource box and all links, into Microsoft Word or whichever text editor you use.
Save the file and now go to freepdfconvert.com to convert the Word document to PDF.
That’s it. You now have a high quality product that you can legally give away for free.
You see Ezine articles actually encourages you to take content from their site and distribute it, as long as you’re not selling it and you keep all links intact.
Let’s take a look at the terms of service to confirm.
As you can see, everything’s cool and we can freely give away articles to our subscribers.
Now don’t think this of this technique as a long term solution to build a subscriber list – but it is a great way to test a market before spending too much time and money.
