Best Ecommerce Popup ideas – Giveaway and Timer in PopUp

[Bonus 2] 41,008 email subscribers

Good things come in twos…

Two tacos are better than one. (Who only gets one taco, anyway?!)

Two high-fives are cooler than one.

And two bonus gifts are waaay more fun than one bonus gift.

Because we’re a fan of twos, we convinced Santa to drop off an extra after-hours gift.

Today, we’re back with your second bonus gift…

How Hemper used a Sumo exit intent popup to generate 41,008 leads.

With so many cool websites on the web, many of us have “TMTS” aka “Too Many Tabs Syndrome.”

It’s easy to jump from page… to page… to page.

But what if you could turn those people who are about to leave into email subscribers? Customers? Lifelong fans?

In this email I’m going to show you how Hemper took advantage of “TMTS” and got insane results:

  • Collected 41,008 subscribers
  • Generated a 22% popup conversion rate (11x higher than average)
  • Convinced readers who were just about to leave to give their email address

Hemper has grown their email list from 0 to 41,008 email subscribers (so far) in ten months by using one simple “exit intent” popup.

When a user mouses out of the Hemper website, the exit intent popup triggers.

To create an exit intent popup like this for your eCommerce business — and get a 22% conversion rate — there are 4 key conversion elements you need:

  1. Giveaway offer. Giveaways perform out-of-this-world taco lovin’ crazy. Don’t feel like giving anything away? No problem. You can convince people to subscribe with free goodies like ebooks, software, or anything else. Think outside the box!
  2. Countdown timer. Update the timer monthly to show scarcity for giveaways.
  3. Description. If you’re doing a giveaway, tell people when the winner is announced. If you’re not doing a giveaway, write mouth-watering explanation text on why the goodie you’re offering is valuable.
  4. Picture. Show people what they can win or what they’re getting.

To make setting up a winning exit intent popup a breeze, here’s how you can use Sumo to set up the same exact popup as Hemper:

1. Log into Sumo and create a new List Builder form.

2. Set your Goal to “Collect Emails”.

3. Set your Form Type to “Popup”.

4. Set your Design to Sumo’s “Impress” template (Hemper used this template so they didn’t need to pay a designer to do design work).

5. If you’re doing a monthly giveaway, add a “Countdown” to your design, then set your End Date to be at the end of the current month.

6. Set your Visibility to “Manual Mode” and only show to people who haven’t seen a popup in 1 month (Hemper does this so repeat visitors don’t get annoyed).

7. Connect your email service provider so you can email your leads with content, offers, and more giveaways. Or, use Sumo Message Center to send emails to your subscribers without spending money on a separate email service provider.

With this one simple exit intent popup, Hemper gets thousands of new emails leads EVERY month.

The best part…

All Hemper has to do is change the countdown timer at the start of each month.

This 5 second task resets the giveaway and continues generating thousands of email leads.

Hey Sumo-lings! We’re excited to be featured on AppSumo and pumped to be getting all the incredible feedback from y’all!

Here’re some of the FAQs answered.

> Does this deal come with a lifetime supply of Search Algo Updates?
HELL YEAH! The deal is lifetime, including Search Algo updates, future features and all kinds of updates and improvements.

> Is there a Windows/Mac/Linux version?
Yes to all! WebSite Auditor is cross-platform and runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux.

> Does WebSite Auditor work with WordPress/Squarespace/WIX/… websites?
YES! The tool will crawl and analyze any site, regardless of what it’s built on and which CMS you’re using.

> Do I need Java to use WebSite Auditor?
Yup, since WebSite Auditor is a Java-based desktop tool. More likely than not, you’ll have Java installed on your computer already, without necessarily knowing it 🙂 If you don’t have it, you can get a fresh version of Java for your OS at java.com.

Any plans on featuring the other SEO PowerSuite tools on AppSumo?
No specific plans at the moment 🙁 But do stay tuned for updates!

Florin Muresan thinks this software is a bit okay-ish.

> I’m an SEO newbie. Where can I learn how to use the tool?
We’ll be doing an exclusive webinar for AppSumo customers on November 21, 11 AM EDT, with a complete WebSite Auditor walkthrough (including some of the cool features you may not have found yourself!). Bookmark this page and come back on the 21st: https://www.link-assistant.com/appsumo-webinar.html
In the meantime, you can find plenty of tutorials, including video guides, here: https://www.link-assistant.com/learning-hub.html

> Does it work with websites in any language?
Yup – no limitations here!

> How is WebSite Auditor different from SE Ranking/SERPstat/WebTextTool/…?
Because WebSite Auditor is a desktop tool, it’s a much faster and more thorough crawler than most cloud-based tools (the reason is simple: for web-based tools, it’s ridiculously expensive to run these crawls because of the server costs). Effectively, this means that instead of a basic audit of some parts of your site, with WebSite Auditor you get an in-depth crawl of each and every URL, each analyzed against 100 factors – and hence a comprehensive picture of all technical and SEO issues and areas for improvement. There’re a few more differences such as:
– WebSite Auditor has a content editing module where you can optimize pages in-app with as-you-type SEO advice;
– There’s a TF-IDF dashboard that gives you algorithmic keyword ideas to optimize content for comprehensiveness and semantic search;
– It’s got powerful, fully customizable reports that can be automated;
– We’re cooking a pretty unique update for December: a visualization module that builds interactive maps of your site to let you spot site structure issues and better interlink your pages…
I could go on for hours! 🙂

Outstanding- NO BRAINER (from somebody who already uses the product)

Guys, if you do SEO, don’t even hesitate. Appsumo has brought some excellent SEO deals, including deals that do content analysis, audit reports, etc. NONE of them are as deep as Website Auditor.

I’ve used the full SEO Powersuite for a while now, and love it. I pay regularly for search engine updates, and it is worth it. It is SOOOOOO deep, and Website Auditor is a great tool. I purchased this to ease the yearly search updates cost a bit (I’ll continue to renew the rest, unless…….).

Whether you need to analyze keyword consistency, technical issues, and much more. Audits can be page level, or for your full site. You can even compare how your keyword efficiency with competitors (or even do a full audit on their site).

And you get the white label on everything. Ummm…….did somebody say Sumo-sized?

Highly recommended, and for $39, even better. Just get it.

I do wish they could somehow offer discounts for other products in the suite since it would really entice those who don’t already have them, but that’s just a personal thought. Get this deal.

Five tacos for the steal price; TEN for the most in-depth SEO auditing tool I’ve used

Just bought 🙂 We’ve actually been using the free version of Website Auditor for a while – it’s top notch! Combines the best parts of Screaming Frog, Xenu and DeepCrawl all together.

Pros:
– crawls literally everything in a way you want it (all links and html tags you can imagine – with or without robots.txt instructions, has an option of JavaScript-enabled crawling, offers support for sites with authentication, and many more options)
– has a very nice summary module with all errors and warnings with an in-depth overview of each factor (and there’s tons of them including quite sophisticated stuff like redirect chains)
– integrates many different off-page & social metrics
– has a WYSIWIG content editor with your optimization score recalculated ‘on the fly’
– TF-IDF analysis module for optimizing for semantic search
– good-looking, easy to understand reports (this version being offered can even save them as PDF or responsive HTML, so you can read them on your desktop or even mobile, send them over to clients, etc)
– this Enterprise version allows to export everything
– it’s desktop – thus you don’t have to wait for scheduled crawls (which often limit you up to ‘one crawl/week’)
– we’ve been running it on both our Macbooks and Windows laptops
– pretty quick, especially for smaller sites
– very nice support people who where helping us even with the free version

Cons:
– since it’s desktop, you need to install it on your office desktop, laptop, home computer separately
– can be memory consuming for big websites (though I think they offer a workaround on their site)
– has a steep learning curve and might take some time to understand all its features if you haven’t used any tools like this

And it’s lifetime access to the enterprise version for just 39$ – can’t believe it. Thank you for bringing it up here guys!

I have my desktop version of this. Does this require the usual monthly ‘search engine’ updates?

In other words, if I pony up for this version, am I saving myself coin or no?

thanks,

Awesome Awesome Awesome^5000 SEO Tool for Sumolings

Five Tacos 🙂
How may Awesome I should say…?! The Best Deal of the year. Thanks to AppSumo for bringing this tool.

I used work with Link-Assistant’s SEO tools before. Unlike SaaS based SEO tool everything is unlimited. If you are working as SEO, you should really need this tool.

But still need more… We want SEOSpyGlass, LinkAssistant and BuzzBundle with same kind of shocking lifetime deal.

Incredible Deal!

I have been using WebSite Auditor for about 8 years. I own/run a web development company and this is essential for my work. It is a great tool that has so many features it’s mind-blowing. This deal is really incredible because even after purchasing the software all those years ago, the Algo Updates are still a few hundred bucks a year for just this one part of the suite.
When I saw the Algo Updates were included for lifetime, I didn’t think twice about purchasing this deal.
I would also jump on a deal if they also offered Rank Tracker (hint-hint WebSite Auditor Team!).

Must-have SEO tool

I’m an SEO consultant and I’ve used Website Auditor & the other SEO Powersuite apps daily for the past several years and couldn’t imagine doing my work without them. Website Auditor is hands down one of the best on-site auditing solutions available and is, in my opinion, a must have. It meets or exceeds the features of all the cloud-based auditing tools that cost 3-4 times as much on a monthly basis. At $39 for lifetime software & algorithm updates this is an absolute steal and you’d have to be crazy to pass this one up.

Pros:
– Beautiful, automated white-label reports that can be easily customized to fit your needs
– Very fast crawler
– Fantastic content analysis tool
– Google analytics integration for traffic stats
– Moz API integration for domain authority & page authority metrics
– Unlimited sites & pages (wow!)

Cons:
– None!

No-brainer if you do anything SEO or website related work

For 39$ and unlimited crawls, it’s a no-brainer tool to have. I like it as a Desktop app so I don’t need to keep logging into things. It gives an extensive report and I already filed off an audit to a client. Thank you!

– speed with normal crawl, its fast (or very fast!)
– Google Analytics integration
– tags, records on page level

What i dont like:
– speed, Crawl with javascript can takes ages and You cant pause it to start other tasks
– no pause continue option

What is a real issue for me:
– With crawling subdomains I cant find a settings to show full URL in PAGE column, there is and additional info with subdomain name after slug, but I cant sort according to subdomains
– from this same reason filtering dont works

If you have large site with many subdomains its like one big bucket with every element in, hard to filter and compare.

Could You confirm “issue” or give me a solution how to filter or group pages according to subdomain?

In general look like great tool, useful and tool value/price makes a _excelent_ deal.

Hey Pawel, thanks for stopping by. For subdomains, you can spot pages that belong to them by the grey text next to each page: http://sc.link-assistant.com/db/a4ccd7ed33a7d9dab3e55444967ca92a.png

Although you don’t see the full subdomain URLs themselves, the sorting and filtering does take them into account. If you’d like to create a filter for a subdomain, hit the filter button, select “Page > Contains” and enter your subdomain. This will work.

And there’s more good news: in mid December, we’ll be releasing a software update that will let you choose to display the full URLs 🙂

Thanks for such an amazing review. Have you tried Screaming Frog on big ecommerce websites?
Is it faster than Website Auditor?

Great news about filtering with subdomain. I try to filter and im my case filter fails. I have typical dubdomain “blog” and also a lot of blog posts have this same keyword in page title/ URL = Messy results.

Think about stop/continue option as this is a must for large projects (or you have to buy VPS)

@lostpiligrim – Im working with ecommerce daily, most of ecommerce engines are old HTML frameworks (Magento, Shopify, Opencart, Woocommerce, etc) so speed will be similar in any tool (its more your connection speed and number of requests per second).

For modern Javascript frameworks (React, Node, Angular, etc) ScreamingFrog works for me faster, what probably could be improved as both tools use chromium library as a rendering engine.

Hope that helps.

Pawel, in your case it really makes it hard to filter out only subdomain pages, since all of them contain the word ‘blog’. But you may also try to use

https://blog or http://blog

in your filter, this will also work.

This deal deserves the entire taco shop!

I have other reporting tools but this one blows them all away.

Now I have to get to work fixing all the broken links, meta tags, and other items that weren’t caught before.

Forget giving only five tacos for this deal. This deal gets the whole shop. Fish tacos, chicken tacos, beef tacos, veggie tacos. This deal has them all.

Congratulations AppSumo for yet another mind blowingly awesome deal.

And thanks Website Auditor. For giving me a longer to do list.

You know I’m going to get your other stuff. Your tools are just too good to pass up.

Grab my money and shut up! 😉

If you can not pay for a tool of that type, you are not willing to try to grow your business and that of your customers.
I pay annually for NetPeak Spider and Screaming Frog, so I have nothing to lose for 39$ .

Thanks for the offer

This WAY TOO GOOD to be real!

Okay – put simply, this deal has no place in the real world. It’s just silly good. The product on offer is very, very good and you appear to get all the bells and whistles.

This really is worth this price per month.

I think that I might need a day or two to collect my thoughts about it because it’s so complex and deep, but for now, consider me amazed!

Buy it now, before it goes away!

I immediately saw crucial errors

This software immediately showed me crucial errors on a first scan. Stuff I HAD to fix without hesitation. Then there are other items which I can attend to later to keep chipping away, to improve my SEO.

For me, this software has paid for itself over and over in the first day of use already.

Technical Issues

First of: The support of this company is awesome. Really great.

Sadly, as of yet it does not work for my site but the support is working on it.

Obviously, I have to turn the security on my website off. I get that. But I also have to turn off the security on my PC.

Malwarebytes detects malicious process “trojan agent” and deletes part of the software. Because the detection is not related to a file of the tool but a process, svhost, I am unable to “ignore” the detection. That’s where real viruses go too.

Basically, I have to turn off the security on my PC and re-install if I use the program. And then it still does not work with my main site.

I am sure this is an awesome product but I feel it’s unfortunate that a program that does nothing on my PC beside using CPU is programmed in a way that leads to problems with a popular and widely used Malware program.

And the whole: “Deinstall that” “Install Java manually” “turn thiis off” feels a bit 2003, especially when it still doesn’t work.

Again, I am sure it’s otherwise a great product and the support would have made it work for me.

I’m a casual user. I am not comfy with the unignorable svhost detection and re-install every time thing.

Story of how Twilio grew into a huge company

A story on how Twilio grew from $0 to $2.94 Billion…

How these 3 growth hacking frameworks helped me build loyal community and 21x my sales (step by step). This is a name of the master-class I speak on various offline events. People say – for a very long time they haven’t attended such a valuable master-class. Want me to speak in your city? Just hit “Reply” and let me know. And now let’s get back to the today’s growth hack.

In 2007, Jeff Lawson and 2 other guys founded Twilio.
They wanted to provide voice APIs, like to a dozen of other odd startups in this space.
Investors said it won‘t fly: wrong product, wrong audience.

Today their company is worth $2.94 Billion.

What steps did they take to achieve $2.94 Billion?

In 2008, they launch their product right after the 2008 financial crisis had hit.
Nobody knew them and nobody trusted them. So the first app, RickRoll – based on their API, they create by themselves.
This app gets major press coverage and Twilio is noticed by investor Dave McClure.

In 2009, they raise $4.7M.
Unlike other startups in this space, they hyper-focused on developers, providing a simple way to add voice calls in their businesses.
They were growing a community of developers. Here‘s how:
1. They hire a traveling team of developer evangelists.
2. Sponsor hackathons.
3. Publish world-class documentation on the website.
4. Offer in-depth coding tutorials on the blog.

In 2010, they allow web app developers to add SMS-based functionality to their web apps.

In May 2010, at the TechCrunch Disrupt hackathon, GroupMe app uses Twilio‘s text messaging product to facilitate group chat. Eventually, GroupMe is acquired by Skype for $85 million.
The success of GroupMe was the inspirational story that helped cement Twilio’s story in the app ecosystem.

In 2010, 500 Startups earmarks $250,000 for a Twilio Micro Fund, which invests in startups using Twilio.

In November 2010, they raise $12M.

In March 2011, AppSumo creates a discounted bundle of SaaS products that includes credit for using Twilio.

In July 2011, They offer developers the option to use all IP communications as well as traditional phone and mobile networks.

In October 2011, when Uber is still a tiny company, they join Twilio. Fast forward 5 years – they will pay over $30M/year to Twilio.

In December 2011, Twilio raises $17M (Series C) to expand the communications platform worldwide.

In February 2012, Twilio lets iOS app makers add VoIP as a feature.

In July 2012, they activate global SMS service.

In December 2013, SendGrid announces tie-ins to the popular Twilio APIs that enable SMS text and voice integration in mobile apps.

In June 2013, Twilio raises a $70 million Series D.

After that, they started to acquire other startups.

In 2016, IPO – They raise $150 million at a $1.2 billion valuation.

In 2017, their company is worth $2.94B.
Interesting fact: they only have 4% annual churn in their customer base.

from the latest Apple Event

“There’s lots of ways to be as a person. And some people express their deep appreciation in different ways. But one of the ways that I believe people express their appreciation to the rest of humanity is to make something wonderful and put it out there. You never meet the people, you never shake their hands, you never hear their story or tell yours, but somehow, in the act of making something with a great deal of care and love, something is transmitted there. And it’s a way of expressing to the rest of our species our deep appreciation. So, we need to be true to who we are and remember what’s really important to us. That’s gonna keep Apple, Apple. If we keep us, us”. Așa a început evenimentul 🙂

template to DEMO Path

For you to build your sales process, you need to identify a Core Customer profile to go after and prospect against.

Once you have that, here’s a sample email you can use to reach out cold and kick off the conversation.

Subject: quick request

Hey [first name],

I hope this email finds you well! I wanted to reach out because [explain how you got their contact information and how you relate to them: talked to a colleague, saw your company online, etc.].

[Name of company] has a new platform that will help (your team at) [organization name]. [One sentence pitch of benefits].

I know that [our product] will be able to help [name of your company] [insert high level benefit here].

Are you available for a quick call [time and date]?

Cheers,

Signature

That should at least get your foot in the door…

… then you continue diving deeper with the prospect around the following info using the B.A.N.T. framework:

  1. Budget: Is there a budget set aside?
  2. Authority: Who is involved in the decision?
  3. Need: Do they have a problem?
  4. Timeline: Is this a now or later thing?
  5. Etc…

Once you’ve got that, then you want to schedule a demo for them with one of your Account Execs or what I like to call my “Product Specialists” (nicer word for salesperson :).

That’s the outbound sales model.

Go out there, add value, connect, identify needs and try and schedule them with a product specialist for a demo.

During the webinar I’m going to go over what makes a KICK ASS demo.

One where the prospect pulls out their credit card on the spot to get signed up and deployed.

But before that, you’ve got to do some homework…

  1. Who is your Core Customer?
  2. Do you have a list of them? (if not, I can help you below)
  3. Do you have a process for prospecting?
  4. Are you qualifying them?

During tomorrow’s webinar, I’m going to be breaking down the SaaS business model.

>>> Register here for The SaaS Model Masterclass

We’ll be covering what metrics matter most, and what sequence you should be attacking them in.

It’ll be a compressed version of my SaaS Academy Metrics but it will give you an actionable game plan to execute against.

More to come…

Dan “selling is my jam” Martell

good way to look at next goals and features for product dev

from Startups Live:

1. Assume no one has the answer (because the don’t) so all efforts are just around questions and how to answer them. It’s not “what feature do we build?” as much as “what don’t we know about our customer and how could a feature help us learn?”

 

[6:43]
2. Keep milestones incredibly small, short. Focus on what’s done by Friday, not this quarter. The fastest way to get lazy is to give yourself more time.

Two Things Required to WIN in SaaS

from Dan the man Martell:

(warning – long email ahead PACKED with value)

Want to know the non-negotiables / absolutes / must haves / can’t build a business without it things required in Saas?

Here they are…

Solve painful problems.
Solve it in a way the customer wants it solved.
Do this wrong and you’ll move sideways in frustration under the false belief that you’ve got something awesome and that any day now customers will realize it.

Nail this and you’ll have millions of people signing up for your software every month (FYI: Dropbox generated 4M referred signups in 15 months!)

Great SaaS companies solve really painful problems.

ONE:

So your solution needs to be a Painkiller!

Problems like:

Team collaboration/communication missteps
Marketing program inefficiency
Losing sales
Managing infrastructure
Financial risk
The opposite of that kind of solution is a Vitamin. Something that may make you better but doesn’t address an immediate pain.

Like taking a vitamin… it’s preventative.

Things like:

Individual productivity
Marketing presentations
Business reporting
Employee morale
Improving documentation
These are all great things to have in your business but they don’t stand out as solving an immediate painful problem.

Never forget that: People buy what they desire, businesses buy what they NEED.

For someone to buy from you, two of the following things need to be true:

The customer has to have a budget to solve it.
The customer has it as a goal to solve.
Their career depends on solving that problem.
The good news is that many times, the issue is not the product, it’s the positioning.

If you look at both lists above (Painkiller vs. Vitamin) you may notice that all I did was take the same list but reframed them…

… I’m talking about the same issues but with a different “lens”, or positioning.

If you’re having trouble selling your solution, it’s probably because you solve a painful problem for the customers but they can’t connect the dots based on how you explain it.

So, to fix the Product Positioning method by filling in the blanks:

Who is your primary customer?
What 2 problems do you solve?
What 3 ways do you do this?
Then use this format:

We help [type of customer] with [problem 1] and [problem 2] by [solution 1], [solution 2] and [solution 3]

This will do a few things:

It’ll get you crystal clear as to what problem you solve – that your customer cares about.
It’ll force you to differentiate why your solution is different from other solutions in the market.
It’ll keep things short and to the point.
Most entrepreneurs are horrible at explaining what they do, who they do it for, and what problem they solve.

This process will get you there.

TWO:

The second problem you need to fix is building your solution in a way the customer wants it solved.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been pitched a product and thought…

… who in the world wants to solve that problem that way?

I’m talking crazy things like requiring a company to:

Give a solution access to all their corporate emails
Migrate their current solutions to a new platform
Force them to complete several form fields to get something created
The better way is to work backwards from the customer’s pain, and solve it in an elegant way that…

Doesn’t require any setup work
Works with their existing products / solutions
Doesn’t change the way they work
Because if you don’t, that just adds friction and could slow down adoption.

What you want to do instead is ask them the IPO Question…

The question is simple:

“If you could wave a magic wand and have this problem solved by a software solution, how would you want it to work?”

Then sit back and listen…

Ask that question to 10 of your potential customers all with the same problem, and look for the 80% that’s shared amongst their answers.

That’s how you should solve their problem!

Now, that doesn’t mean you can just build that and win.

Nope, you’re not off the hook… you’ll still need to take into consideration other factors like:

Technology landscape
Competitive solutions
Business goals
But their answers will at least align your product to solve the problem in an elegant way that won’t add issues to your sales process which we cover in my next email.

So until then, be sure to complete the following:

Write out your positioning statement
Email your customers and ask them the IPO Question

Republishing – check outlets doing republishing

This approach helped Sarah to get over 1,000 new subscribers in 60 hours with $0 spent

You’ve created an awesome article, it gained a bunch of shares and a good position on Google.
You invested a week to create it and 2 weeks to promote it.

Now the only way to grow more is to invest 3 more weeks into another epic article.
Right?

Wrong.

Sarah Peterson used a different approach, invested one day, and got over 1,000 new subscribers in 60 hours. All while spending $0.

The approach is called republishing.
Here’s how you can apply it:

1. Find media that accepts republishing.
Here’s a simple hack on how to do this fast:
Just Google:
YOUR_TOPIC “this article was originally published”

2. Send an email similar to this:
Subject: [Something eye-catching and not generic]
Body:
Hi [Editor name],

[Personal connection point]

I recently wrote an article about [topic] which my audience has enjoyed. I think [publication name’s] audience would love the article as well, because [why?].

I’ve included the article in the body of this email below, and if you’d rather check the original article out here is the link:

[link].

If you enjoy the article and think it would be a good fit, I would love to have it republished on [publication name].

Let me know what you think.

[Your name]

3. When your article gets accepted, ask to place a canonical tag to your original article (it helps Google to understand where the original article is):
<link rel=”canonical” href=”YOUR_URL_HERE”>

lol now this is a growth hack – the Princess

// taken from a guide on Guides.co

‘Cause A Problem’ To Reach Out To Customers
The Hack – Cause a Problem Intentionally to Reach Out to Users

AARRR stage – Retention

Growth Problem – How to Get Users to Contact Customer Support

Haxplanation:

You’re intently staring at your screen, trying to get something important – no – crucial done. That one big task, which will tip the balance of your day’s productivity on the ‘getting shit done’ scale. And then your SaaS app crashes. OMG! WTF! NOOOO!!!

But then… As if by magic, you see an email pop up in your inbox from the Customer Success team of this already-foresaken app developer (which is now on your ‘to unsubscribe as soon as I find a suitable alternative’ list). In a very excited, slightly self-indulgent tone, the mail points out that their system has picked up on a problem with your app instance but the issue has already been fixed by their developers.

They also offer you a 30% discount on their annual subscription as an apology. “WOW! That’s some pretty outstanding customer support” you think and straight-away reply thanking them for saving your day. You then promptly take the app off your ‘to unsubscribe as soon as I find a suitable alternative list’ and purchase their annual plan. In short, you are now a BELIEVER.

But guess what? You just got Growth Punk’d! (now THAT would be a cool show)

Just Hack It:

Wha?! Let me repeat that. Growth. Punk’d.
“But, why? They seemed so nice!”
Uh-huh, that’s what they all say. Anyway, you have just experienced a very clever hack from the ‘customer success as marketing’ playbook
If you think about it, it’s Psychology 101: save the princess, be the hero. And that’s exactly what you are now. A princess…
Now that you know, don’t be so gullible next time. Look after yourself in that gangster’s paradise a.k.a. the SaaS startup world
And definitely have a think about whether you can ethically replicate this hack for your own users
Just be careful how you do it – the last thing you want is to lose any customers this way. Not everyone is as gullible, princess…
