We kicked off our first ever webinar, yesterday, with mobile user growth as our first subject. Thanks for the great turnout.
"I don't believe in big budgets for startups", said Lebanese entrepreneur and webinar host Nagi Salloum about user growth and marketing.
Salloum has years of experience in marketing for startups; he spearheaded a number of initiatives and projects, including startups Loomni and Cineklik.com, and worked in numerous capacities including his current role at the Mobile Growth Academy.
Although access to capital, talent, and insights on best practices increase an entrepreneur's chances of success, they also represent challenges. So how do you reverse engineer some of the best marketing tricks out there to fit your product?
Salloum believes effective marketing is about much more than just the products.
"The choice of words really decides whether your marketing is going to live or die,” he said.
“A bad headline converts around 0.05 percent of visitors into users [whereas] a good headline could convert up to 2 percent, [...] up to 40 times the number of visitors for a sample of 10,000 visitors and the same budget." he said.
"Every successful app you see out there goes through these 4 stages." What are yours like?
Watch the full webinar for details on building a marketing engine that delivers predictable results and helps you fix possible user leakages at different points in your funnel. Here are some of the points that were covered:
