Update: The sale for the very cool Magic Locker plugin is now live at just $12.50 for the first 25 copies.
The idea with this plugin is you let readers view MOST of your content on a page or post but withhold some of it until they share or like the page on a social network.
That’s the basis of it, but let’s look at this in more detail.
Some people won’t like what you’ve done and won’t share your page if they don’t know part of what it is that they’re sharing.
So why not give them some alternatives?
There are some built into Magic Locker that should satisfy everybody.
You can optionally make them wait a number of seconds you define and the content will reveal itself.
Or you can tell them that if they become a WP subscriber then all content on your site will be unlocked. If you have a membership plugin then you could get them to join the membership and with most membership plugins it also makes them WP subscribers too.
And here’s something I’m going to be doing myself. Wait for it…
If you have something to sell, then give people a choice to get it for less IF they’ll share the page.
So put your product up with a buy button for say
$27, and tell your visitors they can get $10 off just for sharing the page. Then either put a second buy button or a discount code if your script supports it.
Cool idea eh? Watch me start using it on all my sites.
Giving people a simple either/or choice always works.
Those that don’t want to share it will pay the higher price – them’s your rules – and those that don’t mind will go ahead and share it and get the very nice discount thank you very much!
It’s a win-win either way, and we all like that don’t we? 😉
You can also lock all sorts of content, not just text. Images and videos can be locked too, as well as payment buttons and coupons. I have another idea that I need to test out first, and I’ll share it with you when I’m ready.
The sale starts today 14th November at 6.00pm GMT, and you can do one of two things.
#1 – Be one of the first 25 people to get the plugin at the starting price of $12.50.
#2 – Join the Plugin Great Membership and get AT LEAST two new plugins, themes or scripts every month for one fixed price that won’t hurt your pocket. Many happy customers have already taken and are enjoying this option.
In reality, as I release so many products and also run weekend sales the chances are high that you’ll get 3 new products per month in the membership. As I write this I have five other plugins almost ready for release with several more in various stages of development all of which I’d like to release before the end of the year.
Becoming a member is the perfect way to never miss out on a product release of mine again.
And it’s cheaper too. 😉
