It's Tuesday morning, coffee in hand you open your laptop to read your emails.
In your inbox, you notice a message saying "Well done, you've just received a new testimonial!" You open the email and read the amazing results John obtained after following your coaching program.
With a smile on your face, you open your WordPress dashboard, approve the testimonial and all of your sales pages are automatically updated with John's raving praise.
And the best thing is, you didn't even have to beg John to leave you a testimonial! Everything happened without you lifting a finger.
What an amazing way to start the day, you think while closing WordPress and going back to work...
Sounds like something that would never happen to you? Yet, it's possible!
Let me show you how you can create a set-and-forget customer testimonial engine in less than 30 minutes!
Before we launched Thrive Quiz Builder to the public, we not only gave our Thrive Members almost a month of exclusive access to the plugin before anyone else, we also issued them a members only challenge:
Build a quiz for your business and submit it in under 12 days.
The 3 winners were promised to be featured on our blog and Facebook page where we’d then spend $50 to boost their quiz on Facebook to their specific audience.
Honestly, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. It was a quick deadline with only a live webinar for training...
Sales emails. Ugh.
You're just becoming accustomed to sending newsletters to your subscribers, and now you should start bombarding them with sales messages? The mere thought makes you feel like a sleazy second hand car salesman.
"Yes Sir, this car was driven by my grandma once a week to the church and back!"
You don't want to treat people that way, least of all your customers!
Yet, with the insanely high ROI sales emails promise, you know your business needs to leverage them.
Could there be a way to sell through email without giving up your principles? Why does selling feel so dirty in the first place?
Let's talk about that.
What makes a quiz go viral?
Do they all have some magical formula we need to know about?
We decided to check it out and analyzed 145 quizzes with more than 100K social shares.
Here’s what we discovered...
Lucky Louie at the breakfast table.
Here's Louis CK, trying to explain to his daughter that she can't play outside at 5 AM. Poor Louis (or Louie) is thrust into an existential crisis through the kid's relentless questioning.
Have you ever been in this situation? You're bombarded with inane questions, stuck in a loop that will lead nowhere, but you just can't stop answering?
Why is that?
Questions act as a psychological irritant, causing the grey cells in your brain to spike up into a neurological hoedown. You almost feel like you owe an answer.
You can use this powerful trigger to engage your audience. Ask questions and they will instinctively interact with you.
The best way to ask questions on your website is through a quiz.
Let’s see how you can quiz your visitors to increase engagement in a fun way!
The other day, I was looking at international health insurance options. After a quick Google search I landed on a website that offered some packages that looked decent.
I was 80% convinced the offering was what I was looking for but I still had 2 or 3 unanswered "I'm a special snowflake"-questions.
That's when I saw the form: "Need help deciding which package is perfect for you?" My thoughts "Yes, please!" I didn't hesitate to give them my phone number.
A few minutes later, a sales person called me back. He answered my remaining questions and closed the deal.
1 Hot Lead + 1 Call = $$$
Discover how can you use the power of telephone sales in your business even if you do not have a sales team on call 24h/day.
I know what you're thinking.
'Narrow my audience? Are you crazy? I read this blog to get more customers, not less!'
Just hear me out. There is a common misconception that more visitors = more subscribers = more sales.
In most cases this just isn’t true.
In today’s website review video you’ll learn how to embrace your point of difference. When it’s done right, this allows you to attract more of your ideal customers, and get the most out of each new lead.
(But wait, there's more!) To give you a better idea of what this advice looks like in practice, we’ve done something a little different. We’re not just reviewing this homepage. We’ve completely remade it.
Aside from headlines, what's the most consumed piece of content on your blog?
This isn't supposed to be a trick question or some kind of unexpected reveal. The answer is likely plastered at the top of every article you've ever published.
Like moths to a flame, human eyes are automatically drawn to a blog's featured images and will visually devour them without even intending to do so.
Your featured images must not only illustrate the content you’ve posted, but should also create a visual identity that works to consistently build your website's brand.
Go ahead and take a quick peek at your website’s blog grid. Do the images work together to create a unique website identity or do they lack an overarching design theme?
If you think your blog has room for improvement in this department, don’t worry.
We've got just the course to teach you How To Craft Featured Images That Engage Traffic and Boost Your Online Identity.
So you've heard how powerful webinars can be.
It's on that big ol' To-Do list of yours:
Unfortunately it keeps getting pushed back down the bottom of that to do list due to it being ↓ Too hard ↓ Too expensive.
If you're just starting out, or you only want to run the occasional webinar, it can be incredibly hard to justify the cost of dedicated webinar software. So much so, it stops you from even starting.
