I would like to offer my visitors a freebie as a thank you for visiting. I would like to have them fill out a form that then automatically delivers the freebie. Does Homestead have tools to make that happen?

Not automatically, but if you make a custom form and then have the submit button redirect to a page that has the file, you can explain and allow them to click. You may not want an automatic download. Many people might get nervous if a site pushes a file to their computer. Anti virus programs may also make an alert. This could scare folks away from coming back.
Thanks. What I've got right now is a graphic of the ebook I want to give visitors and a form for them to fill out. I will then send them the book. Do you think people prefer that sort of thing? I was just trying to make it seem less scammish- I thought if it were sent to them automatically it was a little more legit sounding.

I see where you are going. I would explain it at the top of the page of the form and have the submit button route to a page that allows them to initiate the download themselves. Or, you could simply inform them that within 48 hours they will receive it via email(assuming it is small enough). People are right to be concerned about things happening to their computer automatically.
