In today’s post, I will be sharing 10 of the best opt-in freebies that you can create to grow your mailing list.
As a blogger, you probably know how important creating a mailing list is. If you blog but don’t have a mailing list yet, head on here to learn how to create a mailing list for free.
I also explain why having a mailing list is important, and some ideas on what to send out as newsletters.
A lot of fellow bloggers have told me that they don’t know why their mailing list isn’t growing. If you’re also wondering the same thing, it might be because you’re not offering your readers anything in return for subscribing to you.
Which of these sounds more appealing to you?
Subscribe to my newsletter for the latest updates!
Sign up here for a free training in (something to do with your niche)!
My guess is the latter.
In order for your readers to turn into subscribers, you need to offer them something that will provide value for them.
While you’re here, I offer a 7-day blogging email course that you can sign up to if you would like to learn more about creating a blog, promoting it, monetizing it and more.

10 Opt-In Freebie Ideas To Explode Your Mailing List
One thing I love to sign up for are free templates! You can create an editable template in Canva and then save it as a PDF to your subscribers.
Webinars are really fun to watch. If you are knowledgeable about a certain topic, film yourself talking about it and offer that as your freebie. You could also offer a free webinar to go along a blog post that you want to explain more about!
The first freebie that I ever created was a workbook. Workbooks can be created for a number of different niches so if you have an idea for one, go for it!
You can either create a short ebook for your new subscribers, or offer a few pages of a paid book you have as a sneak-peek.
Give your readers a printable that helps them achieve something related to your post or niche.
Who doesn’t love learning something new? You can set up an automated course like I did with ConvertKit, or set one up with your mailing service.
This can be used by your readers to help them achieve a goal by outlining actionable steps!
If you offer a paid service, or ebook, you can offer discount codes on those as an incentive for your readers to sign up to your mailing list.
If you create many freebies, you might want to consider creating a resource library where your subscribers can choose what to download.
This can be similar to a podcast episode and can like the webinar, can have a further explanation of your post or niche.
