Growth Hack #2 – Case Study: Invest $0 and Recover 11.5% of Lost Customers:

Ninja Outreach is a SaaS. When people clicked “14-Day Free Trial” they needed to input their credit card data.

A lot of people get lost at this stage.

So, the team took these 5 steps to fix the problem:

1. Instead of asking their payment details after hitting the trial button. . .

2. They asked for just their email.

3. After a user submitted their email, they was redirected to a page asking their payment details.

4. If a user abandoned the form, they received an automated email reminder.

5. These emails recovered 11.5% of abandoners.

After the team applied the magic:

1. 11.5% of abandoners finished their trial sign up

2. And are now trying out plans ranging from $29/mo to $249/mo
