First we’re going to choose a specific market segment to target.

Then we’re going to craft your ‘promise.’

Next we’ll write the title and decide on the format.

And finally, we’re going to actually create your lead magnet.

Choosing Your Specific Market Segment

The biggest mistake I see people making is trying to be all things to all people in their lead magnet.

Let’s take the Internet Marketing niche as an example.

New marketers will write a lead magnet such as, “How to Make Tons of Money in Online Marketing.”

Evidently they are trying to target ALL people of all experiences trying to make money in all arenas online.

That’s a wide audience.

Another one might be, “How to be a great parent.” Parent to who? Newborn babies? Toddlers? Grade school age children? Teenagers? Children with special needs? Adopted children? Foster children?

It’s a cliché, but it’s true: When you try to be all things to all people, you’re nothing to nobody.

The more you can niche down your market segment, the more successful you will be.

This isn’t to say you can only service one tight niche. You can work in several different segments; you’ll just need to create several different lead magnets – one for each segment.

For example, let’s say you’re in the dating market. You could create a lead magnet targeted to:

· Professional women in their late 20’s and 30’s looking for the perfect husband

· Recently divorced men who haven’t dated in over a decade

· Widows over 40 who are lonely but afraid to date again

· Men who want to play the field

· Women who want to date younger guys

· And so forth.

Each of these segments have different fears, desires, challenges, motivations and so forth.

You could easily come up with a 100 possibilities, but it’s up to you to choose the right segment to target with your lead magnet.

Think about the exact segment of your market you want to write your lead magnet for.

When you’ve decided, move on to the next step.

Crafting your promise

You’ve chosen a specific segment of your market in the previous step. Now it’s time to make them a promise.

The goal here is to enter the conversation already happening in your prospect’s mind.

Ask yourself what their concerns are. What are their fears? What do they want most of all?

What conversation are they likely already having, and how can you enter that conversation with a promise?

What value can you give them that will be irresistible to where they are in life right now?

The value in your lead magnet should be ultra-specific and easy to consume.

No mega-courses here. No 200 page books, either.

You want your prospect to consume your lead magnet immediately when they receive it. If you send them a 200 page book, they’ll almost certainly set it aside for later.

And later almost never comes.

How can you demonstrate that you know what you’re …

Home contents insurance is a must for anyone seeking to protect their home from fire, theft, maybe flood or earthquakes – and when these problems happen the insurance company
will be able to pay for the cost of the "disasters".

Of course, it's not as simple as this and the insurance cost (for which you will get a policy document with appropriate terms and conditions) can vary dramatically depending on the size of your house, whether you live in a flood plain, how old your house is, the history of claims in the vicinity and a number of other factors.

That said, it is possible to shop around and get varying deals on home contents insurance. Keeping tabs on which are the latest and greatest deals is a challenge but it is one that a few websites have started to do. Home Contents Insurance UK is one such site and lists a good number of the benefits and deals available to policy-seekers.

Online policies can usually be obtained for a significant discount, whether it is 5% or 30% (yes they can be a significant as that) because the insurance company does not have to employ someone to read and interpret a form, or answer the phone . Rather, they can use the basic information about rooms and contents to determine the cost of your policy. This is termed the 'premium' which you can pay monthly or yearly – typically people pay by the year on an annual basis. This does mean you get a good period towards the end of your year to shop around for a good policy in future years. …
