    Great post and I’ve been toying with the idea of “join our mailing list get X discount” etc and this post will spur me on to do some testing :-)

  3. Just thought you might want to know that the Jonah Lehrer article you referenced is incorrect and has been proven so by many in the industry of creative problem solving. The research Lehrer cited did not prove that group brainstorming does not work. In actuality, its construct validity has been questioned. Of fact, other scholars have pointed out that Lehrer “cherry-picked” his data from Nemeth, et al’s study “The liberating role of conflict in group creativity: A study in two countries”.
    Enjoyed the post very much, but wanted to correct you on that particular point since I am a scholar in creativity and creative problem solving methodology. Group Brainstorming does work, effectively if one follows Osborn’s formula.

    Be well,

    Just signed up for your newsletter – the pop-up box in the lower right is what got me. Is that a plugin?

    Hi Peep! Awesome blog! Do you know any free plugins that would enable me to implement a scroll triggered box?

        Thanks a lot for this Peep, I’ve set up this plugin now on my site http://www.evaneverman.com

        Do you know of anything similar for a non-WordPress site? I want to have a similar scroll-triggered box on a standard long-form sales letter landing page.

    Super helpful article. It wouldn’t have been nearly as good without the last examples and screenshots of each site. I know that takes a lot of time to do, it was worth it.

    It’s still hard to think of good lead magnets…I guess I’ll get better as I test them out.

    I have 4 main topics for my website

    Should I create 4 different lead magnets for each topic group

    Or just 1 lead magnet for the whole site ?

      Hey Charles, why not test both strategies and see which works better for you?

      My instinct says go with the more 1:1 approach that will help match user intent (going to a specific category) with a targeted offer (specific lead magnet) while they may take a little more time to produce, specific lead magnets will give you a MUCH clearer understanding of who your visitors are & what they want.

        So if your creating all these specific lead magnets for each topic,

        on the back end in Infusion Soft are they being added to a specific list with its own email series or just the main list

    Peep – I’ve been following your work for the past 1.5 years. Not sure if this is my first time commenting or not, but once again, great work. There are only a handful of sources with reliably good content for me. You are one of them.

    Thanks

    Ian
