Reddit Reports 30% Increase in Monthly Active Users

eclipsing Twitter and Pinterest. Last year, Reddit reported 330 million monthly active users (MAU) on its platform. This year, Reddit’s 2019 trend roundup reveals that number has grown by 30% – adding 100 million monthly users since 2018.

Instant Lead Magnets and TripWires

Do you need a lead magnet or TripWire to give your prospects a free or low-cost way to try your product?

Pull out one chapter or one video of your full product and use that.

If they like what they read or see in the excerpt, they will be much more likely to purchase the full product.

For example: If you’re selling a 15-module video training course, pull out one video and offer it for free to get people to join your list. Follow up with providing them the rest of the course, possibly at a discount for new subscribers.

Or offer that one video for an unusually low price such as $9 and follow up by offering the entire course at a special price for a minimal time.

Forget Free, Try $0

Without giving away any names, I just saw a squeeze page (landing page) offering, “The 3 Secrets to ___” for just $0.

I don’t know why we don’t see $0 more often because it’s an interesting way to present the free concept. But does it work?

You might want to test it on your squeeze page and see if $0 converts better than ‘free’ – I know I’m going to try it.
