Add WhatsApp to your Social Share Buttons!

BuzzFeed tested WhatsApp’s share button and found that 38% more people share via WhatsApp than via Twitter!

Aviary said that WhatsApp shares were almost the same level as Facebook and Instagram.

Maybe that`s because WhatsApp has 900M users (vs Twitter`s 300M), plus the open rate is over 90%. Pretty impressive, yeah? 🙂

How to embed the share button:
1. WordPress plugin.
2. AddToAny widget.


3 Magic Words increased mobile ad success by 36%

48 times, these guys ran the same A/B test for different ads. 42 times it yielded a positive change to the conversion rate. The average conversion rate increase, based on the positive examples, was +36.6%. 12 out of 48 times this test more than doubled the conversion rate (100%+ lifts).

These 3 magic words were “FROM YOUR PHONE”. Worth trying to use them in your mobile ad!


Speed Matters!

Fast email follow-up for leads (within 1 hour or better yet 1 minute) gets TWICE as high response rate and less time / fewer calls to qualify.

Get notified, then call them back immediately!

Some ways to get fast notifications:
– email alert or Zapier to get lead notifications
tout or sidekick to get 1:1 email tracking notifications
