Training video course
These lead magnets are very popular because they are easy to read. There are a lot of users who are too lazy to read any information, and therefore video training courses bring more than a positive effect.
In addition, this lead magnet allows users to get to know the seller better, and accordingly, start to trust him even more.
"In your free sales report, you will learn how to do X in 10 highly effective ways", "An excellent report that reveals 7 main errors".
Lead magnets like these are overly flashy, and because of this, their value is not that high. But using them, you can achieve good results and attract a good number of customers.
Here, as with other lead magnets, the offer itself is important. If you select a topic for your report that is popular and interesting for users, about which there is little information on the market, then you will form well-demanded lead magnet content.
This option is especially suitable for you if there is a limited number of free reports in your market today. If your content is valuable to users, they will happily leave their contact information for you in exchange for a good report.

- domain name registrar,
- payment processor,
- link analysis tools,
- eCommerce platforms, etc.
Finding good solutions and tools on your own is not an easy process, especially if the existing experience with analogues, hasn’t brought positive results. Solve this problem by putting together the most effective tools in one place.
If you have a lot of users, negotiate a discount with service providers, or place an affiliate link and earn some money.
List of utilities
This lead magnet is similar to a toolkit as it also collects useful information together, but the difference is that resource lists do not accumulate tools.
Suppose the user has no idea who you are, but somehow ended up on your website. The goal for the visitor is to get useful content (and to have fun) while you influence it and strive to make sure that they visit your resource again.
You can get user return guarantees by making sure they read the best, most popular, and informative blog posts. To force the user to return, select useful information and put it in one block of content, which the client can access only if he leaves his email.
For example: "Best of the Blog", "Best SMM Content", etc., depending on the industry in which you work. This is a very effective way to catch the interest of the user, as he delves into the essence of the matter and learns valuable information for himself.
Let's say you have created a website whose theme is nutrition for weight loss. To compile a list of resources, you just need to copy links for recipes for dietary meals that are prepared in under 20 minutes into Word. Now you have the opportunity to change a ready-made lead to customer email addresses. However, you have not written a single article.
Infographics are one of the highest quality and most complex content you can design. It is most often shared on social networks and is usually referred to by third-party Internet resources. Infographics are better absorbed by users, regardless of who your audience is. Here’s an example of a fun infographic about automation and its future.
So why not use a lead magnet like these to effectively get contacts from customers? You can design your own infographics using tools like Canva or Piktochart.
