PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

 

Put together a show-stopping FREE Gift (Gift Requirements)

Let’s be real.  We’re looking to have at least 20+ contributors for the BBBG this year and your gift needs to stand out.  So the more exciting the free gift you have, the more subscribers you’ll get.

Peeling off parts of paid products (especially signature courses), giving away templates, or even giving away paid products that’s normally cost $27 or above work great.

If you’d like to create something brand new for the giveaway that’s awesome.  Maybe a mini-course with 1-3 audios or videos (so people can bond with you more) and handout or collections of pdfs / worksheet made into a kit.

 

Absolutely – No quizzes, contests/sweeptakes, 1:1 calls with you, cheesy 3 page pdfs, webinar replays or current lead magnets/things we can find on your site for free right now are allowed. 

**Remember the higher quality the gift, the more sign-ups you will get**

If you’re not sure what to offer, let me know and we can chat about it.

Naturally, we’ll create a bigger buzz & get more eyeballs to this giveaway if our collection of free gifts as a whole sounds super impressive.

Your gift must be something:

1) You could charge $37- 97 for.  

2) Isn’t currently on your site for free.

3) Everyone can have instant access to 

4) No quizzes, contest, 1:1 calls with you, cheesy 3 page pdfs or webinar replays with a “full-on pitch” of your paid offers (A brief mention of where they can learn more about your paid offer is cool.)

Email List Size:

While we feel a little gross for putting a minimum number of subscribers as a requirement for participation, it’s not fair if one person has 10,000 on their list and another has 200 subscribers since the main driver of traffic to this giveaway is 3 solo emails.  The 200 subscriber person has everything to gain, while the 10,000 person, not so much.

So to keep everything fair you must have an email list of at least 2000 subscribers (preferably 4000+) primarily made up of solopreneurs, online experts, digital product creators or pro-bloggers interested in scaling their audiences and propelling their income.

PROMOTIONAL REQUIREMENTS

Because you’re not being charged a single cent to have your free gift featured in front of 20,000+ of your ideal customers with a chance to grow your list by 1000 with free bundle all promotional requirements are mandatory.

If you can’t promote during our promotional window February 22 – March 5th  you CAN NOT be in this free bundle.

We will be keeping tabs on all of the contributors and if we don’t see you posting on social media or have proof that you’re sending solo emails  as outlined below we will simply remove your gift from the giveaway.
