How You Should Use The Word Free

It should come as no surprise, the most commonly used keyword that people type in to a search box on the internet is FREE.

Knowing why you should use this keyword to it’s fullest extent can increase your sales if, you own an online business. I know i have used the word free countless times. Everyone loves something for nothing. No one wants to pay for something if they can get it for free. Think about all the times you have searched for something on the internet.

Whether it was for information, a service, a product, in fact anything. Did you just type in the description, a keyword or phrase, or did you put ‘free’ before it? If you omitted the word free, when the search engines generated the results. I guarantee it gave you a list of ‘related searches’ containing the keywords you used with ‘free’ in front of them.

The Benefit Of Giving Something For Free:

As an online business, if you offer a product, service or some information for free, it can have great returns.

First of all it boosts your search engine rankings.

As the word is typed into a search more than any other, having it optimized on your website will have amazing dividends.

Once a customer has found you in their search results, further use of the word free will draw them in even more.

Giving them something for nothing if they visit your site is a big attraction. In fact, it is such a huge attraction that I can’t emphasize how important it is.

How Giving Something For Free Can Make You Money:

When someone visits your site to claim their freebie, several things can happen. In order to get their free product, they have to give you their name and email address.

This is the #1 reason for offering it to them in the first place. It is highly unlikely that someone will buy something on their first visit to a website.

Unless there is an excellent reason for them to return, they may never visit again. By having their email address, you can contact them and remind them to revisit your site.

You can offer them ‘special offers’ and affiliate sales through your correspondence emails.

It is a well-known fact that there needs to be an average of 7 contacts (sales pitches, remind revisits, offers etc…)with a customer before they will actually buy something.

The reasons for this are quite lengthy and are a whole other article, so Let’s stick to the matter at hand. By being able to have the important contact with your customers, your chances of them making a purchase have increased significantly.

They learn to ‘trust you’, you become familiar to them and that is what often clinches the deal. You gain these things from your customers and then they buy. So, that’s how you make money from giving away something for free.

The Quality Of  Free:

The item that you offer, whether it is a subscription to an ezine, an ebook, report or software,

MUST be of good quality.

If the customer receives their freebie and the quality is poor, they will not come back to your website and buy anything. Even if you are the best website in your niche, offering the best deals, they will never find out, because they just won’t come back.

On the other hand, if they are impressed by their gift, they are more than likely to visit you website again and again. High quality, useful products are an essential if you want the ‘freebie offer’ to work for you.

Choose Carefully:

When deciding on what it is that you will give way, there is one piece of advice that is vital.

Make the free item appropriate to you audience.

Whatever niche you operate it, stick with the theme.

If you offer an eBook on ‘how to make money online’ and your business sells Yoga equipment, you will be heading for a problem.

The customer will visit your website to get their eBook.

They will download it and probably be very pleased if it contained high quality information on ‘Yoga mats’.

When you contact them via email with for example a ‘special offer on yoga mats’, unless by chance they are in the make money online niche, they will not visit your website again.

No matter how many emails you send them, their interest was yoga mats, not make money online. Why should they visit your site again?

The fact is they won’t. So be mindful of what your own niche actually wants and give it to them.

In conclusion, the more you offer freebies, the more money you will make. It is one of the best traffic drivers and is a straight forward concept.

Now that you have this little golden nugget of valuable information, get to work. Plan what you could offer, to whom, when and where.

The Best Internet Advertising Is Free Internet Advertising:

How you can drive traffic to your website using ‘free’. Classified ad’s are a fantastic way to drive traffic to your website. The headline and description should be centered around the infamous “what’s in it for me”.

    • Hello Parveen, Thank you for reading my post. 

      Glad you enjoyed it. 

      Everyone loves something for free.

      All the best to you and your business.

      Kind Regards Shane.

  2. You definitely made me think of something that had never occurred to me before and you are totally correct.  I can’t count the number of times I’ve typed “Free” into a search engine hoping I could find something for free without having to spend.  Another way to make money for free online is to join one of the many companies that get you to do surveys or watch films.  A friend of mine does that.

    • Hello Feochadan, 

      Thank you for the comments.

      Free is a search engine keyword worth using. 

      Appreciate your time.

      Kind Regards Shane.

  3. A very good overview of the term “free” when it comes to running an online business. There’s no question that the term “free” is the best one in advertising (has been, it is today, and always will be).

    I run a little online business myself, and I’m always looking for ways to promote my business for free. As I’ve learned over time, I think to provide free resources (such as a free ebook, free online course) are great ways to connect with new visitors. Also, an excellent way for them to come back and visit your website.

    But as you mentioned, it’s not completely a free ride for people to try out a service indefinitely Free trials are very common for people to try out a particular service. There has to be a free period before someone considers buying a product or service. So you make some good points.

    Have you been successful in promoting your own business for free? What are some of ups and downsides? I’m just curious.

    Thanks for sharing- I’ll definitely bookmark your website for future reference.

    • Hello Eric, 

      Thank you for taking the time to read my post. 

      Appreciate the feedback.

      I have had a bit of success with e-books, not much else at this stage. 

      Still in the process of learning myself, it does take a while to turn a profit. 

      Kind Regards Shane.
