What I loved about it!
This is the first guide I’ve seen that focuses on giving away products and guest posts as incredible marketing tools, but it’s definitely an amazing read! I had all these fears about losing money or creating a terrible free product, but Erin’s book helped me see the opportunities that come with giving away the right thing. She explains how to gain customer loyalty and how to give something away that ensures people return and BUY. Plus, she expertly covers how to make the very most for your business during a giveaway – which is oh-so-important because if you gain nothing, there was no point in doing it! Her book has inspired me to give my customers another reason to love and support my business.
What makes Erin’s e-book unique?
Focus! Erin puts all of her attention and amazing know-how toward helping me (the book reader) create the best giveaway or guest blog post. She had worksheets to help me figure out my best skills (and thus what to share with customers), decide on my Shiny 5 websites to pitch guest posts to, and how to write my pitch! She also has lots of tips about how to make the most of your giveaway. After all, if all people do is comment to tell you your work is lovely, you’re getting nothing out of it! Instead, get them to leave comments that help you create another free product or revise your existing products to better suit your customers. I couldn’t believe one person could write 42 pages that brimmed with unique advice about how to correctly give something away.
Best of the best!
Sample pitches and worksheets! It’s one thing to read how to write a killer guest post pitch but it’s so much better to actually be led through it step-by-step. Her worksheets helped me focus on what my customers actually need and thus what is of the most value for me to give away. I’m so eager now to get out there to pitch away to blogs and give my customers an amazing free product!
Erin is a wonderful writer (both for her site and for Create Hype!) and this new book, Give It Away NOW, is just what I needed.
