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
Growth Hack #3 – Improve Email Performance +25% With the Right Ratios:
Images aren’t categorically bad for emails. But, the RATIO of images:text does matter.
– Don’t go below 2:3
– Don’t make your entire email one big image with text on it
– Include descriptive alt text that gets people to expand / view all images (and tracks your opens)
