Yesterday I recruited 51 new subscribers in less than 24 hours using a specific Lead Magnet.

What is a Lead Magnet?

A lead magnet is a landing page or an offer dedicated to giving your website visitor some relevant value in exchange for their contact information (at the very least, a email address).

It is usually some sort of giveaway or some form of attraction that compels a person to give you their name and email.

What was my Lead Magnet? It was a PDF on the Basics of Bitcoin.

To whom did I send this Lead Magnet? I sent it to people who have already shown interest in Crypto Currency and may need help in understanding how it works.
