How do you turn cold traffic into hot buyers? Ian Stanley is the Founder of Almost Passive Income and he's getting over 80% conversion (almost unheard of) using a new case study. So, how's he getting such a great opt-in rate?
Ian's 'secrets' aren't necessarily all that new, but they are important reminders for those digital marketers who sometimes want to believe that their new approach will work better.
The advice begins with ensuring that your ad copy is similar to your offer's landing page. Congruency is a big buzzword for Ian and this continues with the personalized welcome email that arrives soon after you opt into the offer. And then the deal breaker is that you can expect to see results in a short six hours.
TDMs Mark de Grasse and Ian Stanley are also discussing the importance of matching the medium to the message and finding congruent ways that they will actually buy. Again, it may seem obvious, but if they're watching you on YouTube, they're more likely to pay for a webinar than download an ebook.
Learn about the value of other people's lists, the right way to go about creating effective ad copy that actually generates sales, why having a great offer that people want to buy in the first place, and Ian's 'chaos approach' to making new ads in this frank discussion that is all about getting your marketing fundamentals right before taking on the idea of ‘advanced fundamentals’.
