Lead Magnet Ideas for 51 Different Industries

I think that this might be the hardest part of building out a sales funnel, trying to figure what to use as a lead magnet that will be compelling enough for the visitor to give their email in exchange for it.

There are easy ones where a famous “eBook” lead magnet will work, but many other industries will not get away with just an eBook, so what other things can be used as a lead magnet? I have a list of ideas below for you.

What is a Lead Magnet?

A lead Magnet is usually a digital item that is being given for free in exchange for an email address. This can be used in an Automated Leads Machine that I wrote about before. The idea is to provide something for the visitor for free and make it compelling enough for them to see enough value in it so they would be ok giving their email address to get access to this lead magnet.

Providing tremendous value with this lead magnet will make it a no-brainer for the visitor. Some say, put “your best stuff” into the lead magnet as it is the first contact with them and you want to overwhelm them with value which will overcome any objections or apprehensions they may have had.

Now that you know what it is… (I know, some of you may have already known what it is, and just need ideas for it) Let’s dive in.
