Programmer or coder
❶ Been a huge fan of your site since it first went up. Noticed you mentioned wanting to increase return visits and lengthen visitor sessions.
❷ Here are a few strategies:
- Members only bonus area: You offer a lot of high value bonuses. There doesn't seem to be a way for existing members to receive them right now. You can consider creating a members only bonus area where existing subscribers can download your latest bonuses.
This would boost return visits to your site and you can consider expanding it in the future (to include forums, etc.) to grow your community on a platform you 100% control.
- An exit intent popup that displays different offers or content depending on the behavior of the visitor. For example, if the visitor only stayed on your page for >5 seconds, you can show 2-3 pieces of your best content upon exit intent to entice them into browsing further.
If they are a repeat visitor but have not subscribed, you can ask them if they would like to receive notifications only when you publish new content.
❸A little background about me: I build growth engines for startups - recently strategized and built RoyalSee's pre-launch campaign: [link]. They received 10K signups in 2 weeks.
❹Let me know what you think!
❷ Present your ideas / strategies, explaining the results they deliver for the prospect.
❸ Mention a relevant past project you did and the results it achieved to showcase your skills.
❹ End your email by asking what they think of your ideas / strategies. If they are intrigued by what you can create / do for them, most of them ask for more details on their own.
❶ I'm a huge fan of ProProductivity. Especially enjoyed your article about finding reasons to reach out to inspiring and influential people instead of just hoping you can run into them at events.
❷ Here's a few unique ebook topics you can turn into high converting lead magnets:
- Break down the most effective productivity systems into actionable steps (Pomodoro Technique, Getting Things Down)
- Compile the most frequently featured mindsets in productivity and self-improvement books (for example: power of subconsciousness and positive thinking) and provide exercises to apply them
❸ I found these ebooks also come in handy for sales follow ups. If a prospect hasn't responded to a second or third followup, you can simply share one of your ebooks most relevant to their business goals to provide value and to reengage them.
Let me know what you think!
❷ Provide a few high quality topics they can write about to either gain a lot of leads or visitors.
❸ Provide an additional tip about how you leveraged a written resource in the past.
Thank you for helping us move into the renewables future!
❶ I had a look at your website - here are a few ways you can nudge more your visitors to request a quote:
- ❷ A topbar that moves with the page so your Request Quote button is always a click away. Make it as frictionless to contact you as possible.
- Present previous installation projects with pictures, the electricity generated and the environmental impact by using equivalents people easily understand. "CO2 emissions avoided = X trees planted, X cars off the road per year, X homes heated".
- Compelling header image - Goal is create an certain impression in the first 3 seconds to pique your visitors' curiosity to keep their finger on the scroll wheel. Here's a few high quality stock sites I use:
Love to know what you think.
❷ Provide suggestions to increase the number of visitors who perform the most important goal on their website. With visual examples of how they're supposed to look. This personalized approach is highly effective but takes time, which is why it's important to only target companies who have the budget and need for ongoing design work.
Success story: 10 repeat customers by offering initially free, now low-cost website reviewsBy initially offering free, now low-cost ($10) thorough website reviews, Anthony Malloc was able to get 10 repeat customers for web design projects. The key part of converting samplers into customers? Simply by shooting them a follow up email mentioning "I would love to work with you again". The same reason why a lot of services offer a free trial period, by letting a potential customer see if you have the skills in a free or low-cost way, you eliminate their risk so they are much more likely to give you a shot. Once they do and see that your work is great, some of them will end up hiring you!
Cold email prospects who use products that serve needs relevant to your services
❶ I came across your comment on Sales IQ on Product Hunt.
❷ Here are a few other tools I use in the prospecting process that allowed me to contact 100+ prospects a day semi-automatically:
- Snapper - Search for prospects on Linkedin and download all the profiles that match your criteria. Includes their full names, position, company and smart guessed email addresses (from experience, 80%+ of them work).
- Verified - Upload all the email addresses to verify which ones are working.
❸Recently, I used this process to generate 300+ warmed up prospects for Redeem. 35% of them converted into paying customers, representing $20 000 in new business.
Let me know if you have any questions about how to semi-automate your prospecting to consistently get new customers.
❷ Provide them valuable lesser known insights related to the topic they commented on and the services you provide.
❸ Mention a specific result you achieved for a client to intrigue them into asking for more details.
❶ Thank you for creating Savist. What a timesaver to be able to automatically track all my money going in and out.
❷ In terms of bringing in more money for Savist, here are some copy suggestions that would further boost your sales. ❸ (Based on my experiences boosting the signups and paid upgrades of companies like Firey and Fork by 22%-30% with copy changes alone.)
These copy suggestions refocus Savist's biggest value on the emotional component: easily save money so you have more of it later for what you really need and want.

Let me know what you think!
❷ Share copy suggestions using a web annotator like Bounce. Prospects are much more likely to see the value of your services if you give them concrete ideas about how they can improve an important metric. Then they would be interested to hire you to implement them.
❸ Cite a metric you achieved for previous clients to boost your credibility.
❶ I was looking for something to surprise my girlfriend - really enjoy your use of cascading hops and nontraditional bouquet flourishes to make a special gift that much more special.
Found you through a friend's referral. I Googled you to find your website - saw you're breaking into the second page of Google ranks.

❷ Noticed you're using your company name as your page title. However, if I was just starting my search for a florist without knowing you, I'd probably enter something like "florist Santa Monica" instead.
So if you had "Florist Santa Monica CA" in your title, you would come up a lot higher in search results when buyers nearby are actively seeking your services. Many of your competitors are already using some variation of "Florist Santa Monica CA" so to draw attention to yourself, let's add an extra edge.
❸ Your same day flower delivery offer definitely caught my eye. And would be a smash hit among procrastinators who have that "uh oh" moment when they check their calendars.
Put all together, here's a new title to climb up on Google:
Santa Monica Florist | Same Day Flower Delivery by Belle Jour
Let me know if you have any questions!
❷ Educate them in a storytelling way about what they can do differently to rank higher.
❸ Give away one useful change they can apply right now to get results.
