Apple Podcast Reviews:

It doesn't get any better for content marketers. They present a balanced, insightful discussion of current trends and ask all the right questions. Their guest list is a "Who's Who" of content professionals. Outstanding.

I love listening to marketing podcasts and this one is on my must-listen to list. Very knowledgable hosts and topical discussions.

The Marketing Book Podcast

Nick Steeves, Chief Product Officer at Wishpond, joins the Content Pros Podcast to share his success with pop-ups, microsites, and contextual call-to-actions.

Marketing Marketing to Marketers

Pop-ups are often thought of as necessary but also as cumbersome, annoying, and sometimes destructive when it comes to moving a prospect along the funnel. However, it is possible to have your cake and eat it too when it comes to conversions and pop-ups.
Nick has cultivated a career in successfully using pop-ups to turn prospects into leads and leads into sales. Through careful targeting and contextual CTAs, he takes the sting out of those previously pesky pop-ups and makes them an invaluable marketing tool.
He also has the in-depth knowledge in marketing required to actually market to the well-versed and wary audience of marketers themselves. When it comes to this group, it’s about losing the tricks and focusing on providing a no-nonsense value offer.
Another trick he keeps up his sleeve involves utilizing the power of microsites to drive SEO and transform your ranking from chump to champ. By creating a site loaded with carefully selected keywords and value-driven content that educates, inspires, and engages, your brand can draw a wealth of new qualified leads.

In This Episode

  • How effective, targeted pop-up management leads customers beyond annoyance to conversion
  • Why marketing to marketers means taking off the black hat and providing straight value
  • How creating a microsite can lead to keyword dominance
  • Why a convincing call-to-action means moving the CTA from the bottom to the top
