Many aspiring online entrepreneurs get hooked in by promises that they will get automated payments into their Paypal and Stripe accounts even when they sleep.
To be honest it can be achieved but when you are on the climb or starting out, you need an edge over the competition who can be larger brands or another entrepreneur who happens to have a deeper pocket.
If you have been in the game long enough, you will know that first time visitors to your business/landing page don’t usually buy.
Sure, you have your automated sequences like cart abandonment emails and retargeting ads in place.
On top of using the strategies above, go one step further where most business owners don’t. Follow up personally.
The prospect sees your offer, visits your website, maybe add an item to cart but leaves. There is something holding them back. What better way than to ask them directly?
No matter how advances our technology is, its always nice to actually chat to a person than a automated email/messenger sequence.
My recommendation? Use messenger from Facebook. Find a way to start a conversation in it with your unsure prospect, the ROI on that? Through the roof. The cost? Almost $0. Messenger is free, almost everyone has it and open rates are around 80%!
So far when I personally craft each and every message, I never get upset replies. Instead I have been told that they were surprised I actually follow up personally.
