Get More RSS Subscribers – Give Stuff Away!

June 8th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I subscribed to Chris Garrett on New Media because he was giving away copies of his eBook to all new RSS susbscribers. I remember thinking at the time “I would have subscribed anyway but I like the cut of your jib”. The idea of giving something away as a gift for subscribing to his RSS feed appealed to me and I thought it was a most excellent idea.

Today I have found something that trumps Chris in a big way. The folks over at Create Business Growth are giving new RSS subscribers the chance to win $335 worth of podcasting equipment! I’m not kidding. Head on over and have a look for yourself. The site looks pretty good and contains some interesting stuff so I’d have probably added them to my feed reader anyway but the chance to win this kit was too good to miss out on.

I’ll have a think over the weekend what I can give away to new subscribers. I’ve just had a quick look around the office and all I could find were empty cigarette boxes and a slice of three day old pizza. Salmonella anyone?

    mmm…. cigarette packs and old pizza… that does sound tempting – could be the beginning of a fantastic give-away package! Thanks for mentioning our contest – and best of luck to you!

    I’m only interested in the pizza if it doesn’t feature fish or peppers 😉

    David & Christine – It’s a great incentive. Congrats on coming up with a useful prize that relates perfectly with your target audience.

    Chris – It was once a Mighty Meaty so no peppers or fish. Fish, like sweetcorn and pineapple, have no legitimate claim to be on a pizza. They should step away from the dough.
