JV Giveaways….A Continuation


Christmas was wonderful as I shared it with my daughter, son-in-law, children and grandchildren. I do hope you were able to share Christmas with loved ones too. With a little bit of a reprieve between Christmas and New Year I thought it a good time to continue our series on Giveaway Events.

Moving on with JV Giveaway Events, let’s finish talking about what needs to be in place before you enter a Giveaway Event.  So far our list includes:

  • your gift to be given away in the form of an ebook, report, membership site pass or coupon
  • your own mailing list to promote to and/or ways of advertising the Giveaway promo
  • a reliable autoresponder…the one I use and highly recommend because of it’s reliability is aWeber. Your autoresponder is what you will use to send out the link to your gift once they have opted in

Today we’re going to cover the last few things that will be required of you when you enter a Giveaway Event….your Landing/sign-up page and your Thank you page.

Landing/sign-up page:

Once someone enters the Giveaway, they will browse through the listed items (with graphics) and click on any item that may interest them. Once they click on your listed item, they will be taken to your Landing/sign-up page.  The Landing Page is of utmost importance, because it is this page that must continue to entice them to sign-up. You don’t want to loose them if you’ve gotten them this far! Here’s a short list of things you will want to include on your Landing/sign-up page: Read the rest of this entry

Things have finally started to slow down a bit here in my household as Thanksgiving company left yesterday. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving as it was the first time in 18 years that I had Black Friday off. My grandchildren were here and I was able to spend the day with them, my daughter and son-in-law…which was  much nicer than heading into work at the break of dawn! I hope yours was equally fun and delicious!

That said, it is time to continue my mini series on Giveaway Events. In my last post we discussed the value of entering Giveaway Events and how they are most likely the best way for a newbie marketer to begin building their all important “list.” Today we’re going to discuss a few of the things that must be in place first before you join a Giveaway.

The first and most obvious item you must have ready before entering a Giveaway is the gift you plan on contributing to the Giveaway. This gift can be a report, ebook, membership pass (for those with membership sites), scripts and software…anything that would be of value to others and entice them to sign up to your list in order to get their gift.
