Which one of the following incentives is the most wanted?

Last Update: June 05, 2016

If you're a prospect for a website, and you're searching for a learning program, which incentive will convince you to sign in?

  • a.) a free e-book;
  • b.) a discount for the first month of training;
  • c.) a coupon/gift certificate if you sign in that day.

Please let me know what's important for you as a customer.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts,

Cristina

I think an detailed eBook, ie "internet for beginners" would attract me... I like being informed and made to feel confident that I can do it.

Would take up a discount for one month of training. A coupon to sign in that day might be pushy.

Thank you for your comment, Lanu/ Elijah! How should I call you?
I saw on your profile Lanu, but I'm not sure, it's your name?

It would depend on the "e-Book".... something I truly would read / need.. or file in my e-bOOK REPOSITORY, AND value of the Gift Certificate (Amazon, ?) to me.

A free e-book depending on the topic. Otherwise B.

The topic is sewing courses. What do you think about that? What would be the best incentive, Marty?

I am not into sewing but my wife is very good. For those that want to learn, I would think that an ebook would be a good incentive to give an email address.
My wife has made countless number of clothes for our kids, drapes,
Items for gifts, and taught my daughters this skill. She is now busy making things for the grand babies.
Thank you for teaching this skill, it is not only a business oportunity but a real value for your family.

I'm impressed, Marty! I had no idea that's still a desired skill in such developed country like yours (I suppose you live in the USA!)

Yes, I live in the US. My wife learned from her mother and passed it to our daughters. She is a crafty person who likes scrap booking and other crafts. She likes to make things for the grand kids.
We live in a throwaway society in the US but there are many that keep the old skills alive. Several of my friends are wood workers that build beautiful pieces.
There is also a movement for "preppers" that pass on survival skills and how to make things by hand.

I like this thinking! My grandmother taught me to sew, and now I'd like to pass the knowledge. Having a website for this helps to reach to a lot of persons.

Yes, you may help some new people that want to learn as well as give info to those already sewing.

When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, it was a good motivator for me. But I would have joined in any way!

It's a good incentive, isn't true, Loes?

I think so, most people are searching to gain money, so a discount is likely pulling them in sooner than the other 2 options, I am very well, thanks for asking:)

I like a free e-book because so I read it and gives me an idea whether it is worthwhile to sign in.

A freebie always goes down well until they gain some trust in you :)

i have only really paid for 2 communities, this and one called gamechangers. i wanted to join a community where i would get immense value, they are both around $50/month. i only did gamechangers for 2-3 months because their forum was completely dead, i was the only person engaging. there was no live chat, it was really just a weekly lesson/video and sheets. other than that i've paid for all of grant cardone's audio and audiobook mp3s and spent about $500 there. grant cardone is a master salesman. depends on how much perceived value your curriculum should create.

It's fascinating that here, @WA, we have a very active community.
I am sure that helps a lot.

My question refers to a crafty website (something like learning to sew).

for me i want proof that the person is an expert. if they catch me right off that bat with a cool video or relevant info then i will give them my email in a captcha and usually that includes a free ebook. to sign in i want proof that it works! success stories, a community, and feedback, it better be worth my money!
