IMPACT Live Recap

  • Bob started the event with a challenge: Pick one thing you'll take away from the 2-days and vow to implement it at your business as soon as you get back.  
  • Many speakers reinforced takinf risks. Mark Roberge talked in depth, as well as Mike Volpe and David Meerman Scott, and it carried through the entire event.
  • Another takeaway was invest in video -- With George B Thomas and Dee Dee Dekenessey both speaking on the topic.
  • For a more in-depth recap and to see what you've missed, here's a look at Day One and Day Two of IMPACT Live.

Twitter's Subscription Style Ad Program

  • This is something Twitter is testing, but the subscription will be $99 / month.
    • In addition to month-long promoted account ads, Twitter will promote up to 10 tweets a day.
  • One question we have is, "what will we really get for $99?" 
  • Lesson: Pivot. Twitter noticed that PPC wasn't working and they made a change.

Adobe Pulling The Plug on Flash

  • By the end of 2020, Adobe plans to stop updating and distributing the once iconic Flash media player.
  • As marketers and organizations, don't be afraid to pull the plug if something it's working out. Spend your resources else where.

Main Topic: “Generating Leads Online When You’re on a Budget”

Our recommendation - 6 steps:

  1. Do a deep dive on your buyer (interviews, user research, even competitive research)
    • The more specific the audience, the better
    • Understand how they buy (and the way people buy is always changing)
    • What do they look for in potential vendors?
    • How did they choose you?
    • What questions do they ask when going to websites?
  2. Give your website a professional facelift
    • Easy to navigate / easy to find what they’re looking for
    • You need to optimize it for what you just learned from your research (create the content they need)
    • You need to look like a legit, professional business… not a hack
    • Showcase your human side
  3. Develop an offer for your audience that’s irresistible
    • Could be a free offer, like a free consultation
    • Could be a package deal
    • Could be a tripwire
    • Could be something completely disconnected from your core offer but moves people down the sales funnel
      • Create something that makes your buyer take action.
    • Note - not all people that take you up on that offer
  4. Create a conversion path
    • When someone comes on your site, how are you promoting the offer and how do they convert?
    • Landing Page, form or CTA, thank you/redirect page,
    • Get your messaging right, prove the value
    • Use social proof and imagery
    • Neil Patel post: 12 Essentials of a High Converting Landing Page
  5. Double check everything
    • Put yourself in your potential buyer's shoes and be the biggest critic possible.
    • Go along their journey
  6. Promote your offer using paid channels
    • If you did a good job defining a narrow audience you’re going after in step 1, then it should be easy getting defining an audience using paid channels
    • Create ad copy that clearly defines your message…
    • If you’re b2b… consider using Linkedin Inmail messages.
    • Ryan Deiss from DigitalMarketer would say, “The traffic stores are open”
    • You don’t need a lot of traffic, you need the right traffic, with the right irresistible offer, to generate leads.
