This blog post is extracted by Alex Yusof from our new eBook, "30 Greatest Lead Generation Tips".

Yes. It’s one of the most powerful words in the human language. And if you think about all the things we do as marketers, it’s ultimately to get people to say “yes” to our offers. When an offer is exclusive, scarce, or in high demand, it becomes more desirable. Whether they are white papers, free trials, memberships, sales promotions, or downloads, these irresistible elements can overcome a lead’s typical friction, doubt, or concern. Why do these elements work? Because they trigger a physiological reaction that makes an offer more valuable. People need to perceive the value of your offer to be greater than what you’re asking for in return. The higher the perception of value, the more irresistible the offer. So how do you create irresistible offers? Glad you asked. Read on to find out!
