      Hi David,

      Thank you so much for sharing this with us. What a great concise list you’ve shared with us. I’ve normally just thought of a report or eBook never really thought of anything else.
      Keep up the good work – I love following your blog always lots of useful information. Thank you

      Lainie 🙂

        Hello Lainie,

        Thanks for taking the time to read and respond on my post. I used to think the same way, then I started to recognize how many different ways we can offer value to our subscribers.

        I’m glad you found it useful.

      Great post again David, and it’s a real thought starter. I’m really struggling with lead generation so I’m very grateful for ammunition you’ve given here to kick start some lead gen campaigns. Keep up the great work my friend! Best wishes, Anthony

        Best to you,

      Thanks for the great ideas. I pretty much give away PDFs/eBooks. I am going to try using a quiz and see how that works. I think that might work well on Facebook.

      • David Wakeman

        Hello Linda,

        Thanks for your comments. I have used quizzes and they work great.

        Best Wishes,
