    Hi everyone,

    I am in the process of creating a “Free download” for my website and I’m after some ideas on what clients & potential clients might like.

    A bit of background – I operate a Virtual Assistant business where we provide administration, marketing and bookkeeping services for SME’s.

    What do you think would be a valuable tool for clients to download?

    Thanks,
    Barb

    What about a PDF on “10 ways to improve your bottom line by using a VA” ?

    Hi Barb,

    People are always looking for the easiest way to get things done. Why not give your top 3 strategies. Make it short and sharp.

    I would also suggest on the back of your business card have an offer saying something like “email me to get your free copy of (your free booklet)”.

    This will be another way to build your database and give people some valuable content.

    Good luck
    Alison

    Hi Barb,

    When setting up your opt in, a good idea is to make your gift something that people can receive over time such as a series of PDF’s or videos. Even if it’s only over a period of a week, it cuts down the ratio of people who put in their “spam” email address or simply opt out as soon as they get your gift.

    It’s getting harder and harder to get people to opt in with free reports as everyone is doing it and the content is often not that beneficial.

    Someone looking for a Virtual Assistant is obviously wanting more time and to delegate duties.

    If you can give them some kind of time saving tool, something that would be valuable to someone who is very busy.

    Time a management calendar, a list of time saving online resources. Then once you have their email you can continue to display your expertise and build your value.

    Get into the mindset of what they are looking for when they reach your site the offer them something they really want.

    What about a list of things that you need to give to a VA to do a specific task for your business.

    You could produce checklists that your clients can print off as required.

    In my experience, a good VA can be the difference between a mediocre business and a thriving business.
