Viral PDF Reports
The next tactic I want to talk about is using viral PDF reports.
So let’s say you write a little report that can be 2 to 5 pages long, as long as it’s rock solid content; it’s going to be for a free report anyway, and you create a PDF report out of it. Well, inside the PDF report, you want to say that this is free to distribute.
Also inside of your PDF report, you want to have a link at the end that leads to your squeeze page or an entire ad that leads to your squeeze page.
What I’ve found in the past is that other people started using my reports to build their lists with.
So they would actually give my reports away to their squeeze pages and I would generate those subscribers under my list, the ones who actually read the report and then clicked thru at the end.
The ones who read the reports and clicked through to the end and discovered you that way, end up being some of the highest quality leads you’ll get because they’ve just read one of your reports, and they clicked through at the end to get your freebie, and you’ve got them on your list.
If you’re not sure how to do this, you can go to OpenOffice online.
You can just type into Google, “OpenOffice” and download OpenOffice Writer.
You’re going to open up OpenOffice Writer and write your report.
It’s kind of like Microsoft Word.
Then you’re going to click “File” and export as a PDF.
Once you do that, you have a PDF that you can give away, and you have clickable links inside the PDF and that will become your viral report.
It’s a little different than rebrandable reports.
If you have your own affiliate program, you can give affiliates a way to give cool content to their list and to promote you at the same time by offering a viral brandable rewritable report.
This is a little bit different, a little more simplistic, and if you give enough of these reports away that are viral reports, you may see them circulating all over the place and generating leads from all over the internet.
