Episode 69 – Raphael Paulin-Daigle
Today’s guest is Raphael Paulin-Daigle of SplitBase.com. He is a conversions expert who is extremely passionate about helping businesses grow. He’ll teach us not just about website and Facebook marketing conversions, but also about the first impressions clients receive when they come through the door and how to follow up with people.
With Facebook ads in particular, many business owners Boost a Post or build an ad, hoping for an immediate payback. What they SHOULD do is plan the result they want to get; create a solid offer; target the exact people they can help MOST; then build the ad. And then test, test, and test again.
For example, a common problem many people report is a high response rate (lots of views, shares and comments) with no action. This is conversion: do your “leads” from your ads take action, or not? You can have a fantastic ad leading to a very poor landing page, and get zero results. If so, you’re not bad at marketing; you’re bad at converting. Raphael is very, very GOOD at converting.
Marketing is all about helping people and building a relationship. Be sure to follow along and take good notes on all the strategies presented today!
