So you want to create a free resource library? I did too, and I was able to create my own without spending a dime. So how did I do that? Well…
When I first started writing my e-book, I knew I wanted to cater to women who were looking to start their own virtual assisting business. What I didn’t know is how I would get them to see it and want to download it. When I decided that I could use it as an opt-in for the email list I wanted to grow, I looked for ways to add it to my site.
I came across a few different ways to give my subscribers my book, but what really caught my eye was a resource library. Much to my disappointment, every single blog post about how to create a free resource library were either;
a. marketing to Squarespace users or
b. a blog post that suggests you pay to create a resource library on WordPress
I use WordPress, so 50% of the blog posts I found automatically didn’t work for me. The others didn’t work either because I wasn’t really willing to shell out money on something I wasn’t sure would work or not. If my resource library was well received then that would be great, but what if it was a flop? I would be out of some cash.
