Ending The War Between Branding And Direct Response

There is a war going on in marketing departments around the world, and it has resulted in untold amounts of needless suffering. On the one side are the guardians who insist on orthodoxy and brand purity. On the other side are the maverick direct response teams – willing to try anything. Each views the other with hatred and suspicion – thinking that their own viewpoints are correct and complete.

But this does not need to be the case. Join noted conversion rate optimization (CRO) expert Tim Ash as he lays out a comprehensive framework for uniting these seemingly intractable enemies, and harnessing their combined power to create synergistic results.

You will learn:

  • How branding and direct response practitioners view each other
  • Key concepts for understanding the power and limitations of brands
  • Understanding how brands subconsciously frame the direct-response offer
  • How to create a framework for powerful brand/direct-response synergies

Insights into Mobile Conversion

The “year of mobile” has already happened, and you are late to the party.

In the rush to catch up, you have probably retrofitted “mobileness” belatedly onto some of your desktop web experiences. Unfortunately this approach will most likely fail. Understand the pitfalls of going mobile, and why it is fundamentally different from desktop.

You will learn a number of important perspectives on creating a compelling mobile conversion strategy:

  • Why context (and not content) is king
  • Characteristics and behaviors of mobile users
  • The real mobile “killer app”
  • Why “responsive lite” websites are not the answer
  • Guidelines for creating optimal mobile experiences

That’s Irrational! Why Selling To The Logical Brain Won’t Get Results

People don’t make “rational” decisions. Your web experiences may be laid out in a logical way, and that is costing you a lot of money. Understand the latest in neuromarketing research to bias visitors subconsciously, and make it more likely that they will take the desired action on your web page. Learn the power of framing, irrational anchors, and visual biases. Find out what motivates your primitive reptilian brain, and how to skyrocket online conversion rates!

What you will learn:

  • Why you really have three brains, and which ones are really in charge
  • How to limit choice overload and focus people on the desired outcome
  • How to maximize value by framing and bracketing to create context
  • Practical applications for your online marketing campaigns
