As marketers, tend to forget that we don’t sell anything in an email. An email’s objective is not to get a purchase; it is to get a click. We should be asking the question, “What would drive the most possible clicks to the page where the purchase can happen?”

4 Lessons About B2B Inbound Marketing from a Sunday Morning in the Coffee Shop

I was in Starbucks the other day, and in walks an older gentleman. I couldn’t help but notice that people kept focusing on him and chatting him up — in line, while waiting for a drink, etc. I could overhear the conversations a bit, so I asked someone sitting near me, “Was that guy in the NFL or something?” He responded, “Yeah, that’s Rocky Rochester. He was defensive tackle for the New York Jets in Super Bowl III.”

How The Micro-Yes Sequence Can Help You Generate More Leads and Sales

The Micro-Yes Sequence is crucial to land the ultimate macro-yes, or your end goal — a sale, a subscription, a clickthrough, whatever it may be. As marketers, we often overlook the sequence and just ask the “big question” before a prospect is ready to say “yes” to the macro-yes, which only leads to a “no.” In this Quick Win Clinic episode (recorded live at the MarketingSherpa Summit 2017), Flint McGlaughlin optimizes a landing page submitted by Inventory Source, a dropship automation software company, that overlooks the sequence of micro-yes(s).

Email is a Relational Medium

An email is a conversation. It’s not a magazine ad. It’s not a branding opportunity. It’s not a website. It’s a way to talk to your customers, and (hopefully) have them respond back. One of the most critical email mistakes we make as marketers is forgetting this fact. We tend to design our emails to look like our ad campaigns. We forget that we’re having a conversation and virtually shout at the people who read our emails.

The Prospect’s Perception Gap: How to bridge the dangerous gap between the results we want and the results we have

Brands make promises all the time, and most of them ring empty and hollow on the ears of a prospect — even if the brand can actually keep its promises. There is, inherent in every transaction, a perception gap in the mind of the prospect that must be bridged before an exchange can take place. In April, Flint McGlaughlin, Managing Director, MECLABS (the parent company of both MarketingExperiments and MarketingSherpa), lectured on this gap and how marketers can bridge it.

Rank Checker Update

Recently rank checker started hanging on some search queries & the button on the SEO Toolbar which launched rank checker stopped working. Both of these issues should now be fixed if you update your Firefox extensions.

If ever the toolbar button doesn't work one can enable the Menu bar in Firefox, then go under the tools menu to the rank checker section to open it.

Years ago we created a new logo for rank checker which we finally got around to changing it today. :)

Rank Checker.
