100 Ideas for a Fascinating Freebie That Attracts Clients


Having a great freebie (that giveaway, free download, resource, tip sheet, report, video, etc) on your website does all kinds of magical goodness for attracting clients.

When done well, it:

  • Builds your credibility high as a talented coach
  • Educates your market so they can tackle their
  • Drives people to your website for good reason — much better than the beggy “check out my site” line
  • Generates leads if can capture an email address or entice recipients to get in touch for coaching (or buy something)
  • Builds trust with people like a true professional (gurus who love their craft share their wisdom via information)

Essentially, a well-designed coaching freebie gives people a good taste of what you’re about, delivers value, and begins to foster a potential coach/coachee relationship.

However, it can take some work to pull one together. So, I suggest you do this.

For newbies to the marketing scene, a swift savvy first-go is to create a checklist of some sort — a tip sheet, a 1-pager list, or cheat sheet.

These work well because they are …

  • easy to make, they can be a simple text document with an image
  • readily accessible via a download link, or private link to a video
  • super valuable if the content is chosen well

A good marketing move should be smartly chosen, but more importantly it’s one that you actually get done. And a simple freebie can do the trick.

A few examples for a checklist kind of freebie …
