Create content, get paid in social media momentum - Free and fabulous #6
TLDR: Great content marketing tool that uses and promotes organic social media reach as a form of payment.
Everyone has content, you just need to know how to market it.
Making an e-book, white paper, free worksheets or checklists?
Whatever the packaging of your added-value is, you need to get the word out.
Sure, you can pay for FB adds or stalk your network.
But what about social currency instead?
Have people pay with a status update as a means of payment for getting your value-adding content.
That's what Pay With A Tweet does:
It lets people type their own status, includes your link to the update, and checks if it is actually posted on their social network.
So in return for your free stuff, they provide the momentum you need, without resorting to paid adds.
How fabulous is it really?
You can customize the experience by using a specific landing page, "thank you for downloading" page, etc.
Want to restrict your generosity?
Set a maximum amount of offers and 'valid until' restriction on your free content.
How free is it really?
