Many of you have contacted me about preparing a free special or short report to give out when people opt in to your list. The fastest way to do this is to combine articles you have written or use articles written by others. Write an introduction, include about 10 articles, write a conclusion, and you will have your report ready. Be sure to include one or two affiliate links in the report so that you will make some income from it over time. You can use it to generate leads and build your list.
When you submit your articles to the article directories you are giving your permission to allow others to distribute your articles. You can do the same thing by using articles written by others. Just be sure to keep the article intact, including the person’s resource box information. Search for articles on the topic you need, combine them together, PDF the document, and your short/special report is ready to go to work for you.
Preparing these reports will also get you closer to completing your own ebook. Keep writing, use an outline, and your ebook will be ready in just a few weeks.
