Podcast cover
Read more

Email marketing is tough! Conversions can be very low for a lot of effort. Mikael from ManyChat introduces us to "Messenger Marketing", a way to connect with your audience on the platforms they use that has increadibly high conversion rates.


Together we create scenarios how an an agency might use messenger to:


  • Attract
  • Nurture
  • Sell
  • Support
  • Re-engage


Biggest takeaway? Do marketing that you would want to experience yourself. I don't read the umpteen emails I receive from the subscriptions I have, but I certainly don't mind a quick Facebook natter! :D

Rank #18: #236 - The anatomy of a funnel - Matt Davies

Podcast cover
Read more

Funnels are so often abused, yet if done right, they can help us to develop lasting business relationships. In this episode Matt deep dives into the anatomy of a funnel and what the essential ingredients are. I have so often shared my own frustration with funnels that go in for the sell and can feel manipulative. (Check out one of my recent rants on YouTube). Based on this, I give Matt a hard time asking him to help me understand how funnels can be of benefit, and how they can help both the prospect and our own business.
