Want to increase your email list by offering something your readers can't resist? Offer them an entire resource library of exclusive content, like worksheets, etc! You can set one up for FREE by following my step-by-step video tutorial!

Interested in starting a blog and making money from home? I earned my first $200 within 3 months of starting Frugal on the Prairie then went on to earn a full-time income from home about 6 months later! If you're ready to get started, I have a step-by-step tutorial for setting up your domain and hosting here, which can be a headache to figure out by yourself if you've never done it before! I also highly recommend and use Bluehost for my hosting! (<---That's an affiliate link but girl, I never recommend something I don't love or use ;) 


What in the world is a resource library and why should you create one?

A resource library is a password-protected page containing multiple subscriber incentives that you can offer as a subscriber incentive. Sound confusing? Let me explain:

  • Step 1: You create multiple subscriber incentives like worksheets, printables, etc.
  • Step 2: You want to offer them all together as a bundle to your readers
  • Step 3: You upload them all on a password protected page on your blog
  • Step 4: People sign up on your email list and you give them the password to access all the freebies
  • Step 5: You celebrate because your list is growing and growing each day!
While readers like getting one freebie from you, they like getting multiple freebies even more.

Creating a resource library for your subscribers helps show them that they're a part of an exclusive club. It's also a great alternative to free courses or free ebooks.

I've always used the Essential Grid Plugin for my resource library but it costs money and I never spent money on "extras" like that during my first months of blogging. It took me awhile before I got comfortable investing in it and I know a lot of my blogging students feel the same way. We are businesswomen on a budget!

So I did created a tutorial with a workaround and it's 100% free if you already have a Wordpress blog set up.

Please note that this tutorial is in Wordpress but you can apply the same steps to other platforms. As long as you can create a password-protected page, you're good to go!
