You do know you can create a free product by merging your important blog posts on one topic as an ebook. In this way you can easily build your email list by incentivizing your blog readers with the ebook to become your regular subscribers.
I coined this word by joining two words link and tutorial into one. If you search it on Google it says not found such word on internet.
It means you are the lucky mates first time introducing this idea at your blog by following the tips of this post. So it is right to call it a unique product.
How to create a linkotorial as your unique product?
Simply you need to pick the title and URL of your posts related to a given topic but they collectively should solve a common problem of your readers.
If your blog niche is blogging, the most common problem of your visitors may be to build traffic fast and for free also.
So pick all the posts in which you helped your readers how to increase your blog traffic without spending a dime and fully avoid all types of traffic growth mistakes?
Now put your selected posts into an order. It means to put the basic level posts on top and advance level at down to first let visitors get basic knowledge and then move to advance level.
In MS word you can directly link title of each post with its URL under the option Insert where you have an option of Hypderlink with the image of globe.
Select the title of your each selected post and insert its URL to create its link. Now you have a complete list of link-based tutorial.
Put sub-heading of each set of URLs of the sub-category of the main topic of your linkotorial to make it easier for users to click on links of sub-topic which they want to read first.
You can also put images under each link or under the set of links of each sub-topic to make your linkotorial more attractive.
After that convert it into a PDF file and create a title image by writing its title and put it at the sidebar of your blog.
You can see its practical demonstration at my blog here. I have recently created a linkotrial and now it is at its sidebar.
I offer this product to my visitors even without asking them to submit their email before downloading it because I want to get its some other benefits. You will read its other benefits in the later part of this post.
Why a Linkotorial?
You can offer it to your visitors in return of their email to make them your regular subscribers
You can save your time which you otherwise have to spend to merge all your selected posts for creating an ebook to offer free to your visitors
You can give a professional look to your blog by showing that you do have a unique product to offer to your visitors
People don’t like ebooks because of their availability in abundance. So a linkotorial gives an impression of a unique product and not a simply ebook. It can attract more people to become your blog subscribers.
Other benefits of linkotorial
Once your visitors get it they will come back to your blog by clicking the links mentioned in it
Coming back of your visitors to your blog means increase in page views of your blog
It will also help reduce bounce rate of your blog
People will stay more at your blog to read the posts pointed in it which ensures their longer stay at your blog
As a result analytics of your blog will improve and you can get higher page rank
Ebook versus LinkoTorial
Once downloaded you can’t update it and have to issue its second edition
You can update any post of its links because of its being in your blog and only its link is in Linkotorial
New text links
You can’t add new links of your latest posts in ebook already downloaded by your visitors
You can keep linking all the posts already mentioned in it with your latest blog posts to increase page views per visitor
New affiliate links
It is not possible to put affiliate links of newly introduced products of your niche in ebook because its several copies have already been download
You have the benefit of putting new affiliate links in all posts linked in it
Nature of product
Ebook has no big impression because of being an ebook and not taken as a complete product
It is a tutorial that is based on links of your blog posts of a topic so it can be called a unique product.
If you have huge number of blog posts at your blog you can create several linkotorials to solve multiple problems of your blog visitors.
The main task in doing all this task is to pick the best posts of your blog related to a topic and put them in proper sequencing to avoid any randomness.
The success of this unique product mostly depends upon the quality of your selected posts you have mentioned in it. If they are of higher quality and focused at one topic then your product can be a big boost to increase the conversion rate of your blog.
It is free but you will build a list with its help. So ultimately you can sell as many products as you can by selling them to your email subscribers. We all know that money is in the list so how can we avoid calling a list making product as money making product.
That is why I did not mention anywhere in the post or in its heading that it is a free product. In the long run it is a money making product I repeat.
Call to action 1: Share your views?
