Review of JV Giveaway Tactics EBook

In my previous post I talked about building your list using JV Giveaway Events and I received quite a few emails asking me questions about giveaway events.

I've managed to find an excellent EBook called JV Giveaway Tactics by Jerry Iannucci, that explains pretty much everything you need to know about Joint Giveaway Events. The good news is, this EBook can be downloaded for FREE.

Here's a quick Review of the JV Giveaway Tactics EBook:

Summary - This EBook is a great introduction to building your list using JV Giveaway Events. It is 32 pages long and covers everything from list building basics, to creating lead capture pages, thank you pages and download pages, registering for your first giveaway event, how to submit your gift and whether or not it is worth upgrading in these events or not.

The book is easy to read and doesn't require any detailed knowledge of internet marketing to understand.

The author starts by explaining what a JV Giveaway event is and what the benefits are, then goes on to discuss how to choose a giveaway event to join and the benefits of joining early versus joining later. For the benefit of those people who don't have a gift to giveaway he then goes on to cover how to get a gift and how to setup a good lead capture page and create thank you and download pages. For the non techie people there are various options for creating these pages without getting involved in writing HTML.

Verdict - overall a very thorough book on JV Giveaways. It is targeted more at internet marketers who are new to giveaway events, but even if you have done a few events before, you will also benefit from some of the tips inside the book.

Cost - FREE

Other Info - You can also brand this book with your affiliate IDs for a fee and give it away to others.

If you are new to JV Giveaway events or looking for ways to be more successful with them I highly recommend downloading this book and then registering for one of the upcoming JV Giveaway Events.

Build Your List with Free JV Giveaway Events

If there is one thing that I have learned in my years of marketing online (especially recently), it is the importance of building a list.

Whether you are new to online marketing or if you have been at it for a while, you should spend a good proportion of your time focusing on list building.

One of the best ways to build a list fast is by using JV Giveaway Events.

Giveaway events allow you to gain new subscribers to your list in exchange for offering a free gift such as an EBook or a report.

All you need to do is sign up for the JV Giveaway event of your choice, confirm your email address and then add a gift.

For a list of all the latest giveaway events and some tips on where to find free gifts to offer, visit my JV Giveaway Events page.

The first time you do this it will probably take you around 30 minutes to an hour, but after you have done one giveaway event you should be able to register for an event and setup your gift in 15 minutes or less.

I've gained as much as 300 subscribers in a single event before, so it is well worth the small amount of effort!

How to Build an Opt in Email List

When you have an online business, one of the most important things you can do is learn how to build an optin in email list. It is not as hard to do as some people think it is. You just need to know how to build a mailing list effectively.

Here are the most important steps that you need to take to build your mailing list:

1. Find a Valuable Freebie to Offer Your Subscribers – If you are going to capture the name and email addresses of visitors, you should offer them something for free, but be sure it is something of value. The first step is to find the free item that you will be giving away and ensure that it is something people will want. It can be a report, software, free business tools or anything else that they would willingly give you their information for.

2. Build a Squeeze page or lead capture page – The next step is to build a lead capture page or squeeze page. This is just a simple page where you offer the freebie, provide the reasons it is a good idea for them to sign up for your newsletter and then put a capture form from any auto-responder on the site. Here is an example of a lead capture page.

3. Create a Newsletter – You need to sign up for an autoresponder account such as GetResponse and start setting up a newsletter or ezine. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but again, provide free articles, resources, videos and many other things that people will want. This will encourage them to stay on your email list after they have received the freebie offered to get them there. Send out a newsletter once a week, every two weeks or even monthly to keep in contact with the people on your list.

4. Market Your Squeeze Page – This is a vital step to take once you have done the other steps. If people don’t know about your squeeze page, they will never sign up. You have to market your page, just like you do your online business. This is the only way to get people to sign up and the more ways you use to market, the faster you will build your list

Hopefully this will give you an idea of how to build an optin in email list. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can start growing your list until it is one of your most powerful business building tools to use.
