One Easy Way to Increase the Value of Your Offer

If you have read some of our Tips & Trends articles in the past, you may have seen us refer to Lead Magnets, Tripwires, or Profit Maximizer Offers.

These are industry terms for different types of offers that can come from your business.

Here is the breakdown of those terms and how they take your customers through your sales funnel.

Lead Magnets

Lead Magnets are usually the first step in the process to draw in new leads. They are usually free and can include informational or helpful materials that relate to your business, such as:

  • Case studies
  • White papers
  • Free guides
  • Free eBooks
  • Audios
  • Videos
  • Cheat sheets
  • Templates
  • Toolkits
  • And more…

Tripwires

Tripwires are the next step in the process. After a prospect has turned into a lead by taking advantage of one of your Lead Magnets, you can turn them into a customer by making them a low-cost, relatively painless offer. Then once they are in your sales funnel, you can try to offer other products and services to them.

This type of offer varies immensely depending on what type of business you have. Let’s use a personal trainer who caters to women looking to lose weight as an example.

If their Lead Magnet is a 5-minute workout video that helps melt fat and build muscle, a great Tripwires could include a smoothie recipe booklet for weight loss and a video of 10 cardio moves to melt fat. Once they purchase this low cost offer, the personal trainer could then upsell into their signature 6-month program.

Profit Maximizer Offers

Taking cold traffic, who has never heard of you or your business straight to a profit maximizer (high-dollar) offer without going through a complete customer journey can really turn off some people who may otherwise be interested in your product or service.

By taking your prospects from leads to low-risk customers first, you build trust and reassure them in your knowledge and expertise before asking them to put the big bucks into your business.

Your high-dollar offers are usually the end goal in your customer journey, although you can have more than one.

But there’s one trick we still haven’t shared…

One Easy Way to Increase the Value of Your Offer

No matter which step of the sales funnel you are looking to enhance, there’s one simple way to increase the value of your offer.

Add a bonus!

Your offers are not likely to be effective if people don’t feel like they are getting enough value for what they are providing. Their information is valuable. So your lead magnet needs to be valuable.

If people don’t respond to your offer, that can mean they don’t get enough value for providing their info in exchange for your Lead Magnet. It can also mean they don’t feel like your offer, or it can mean that your high dollar offer is just too big of a jump before they are sure that you can be trusted.

By adding a bonus to any of your offers you increase the chances of your prospects taking action and moving to the next step in your funnel.


If you’re struggling to get leads to your business or moving them into higher revenue generating offers, it might be time to take a look at your offers and see where value can be added in.
