YOU need a conversion model... first
why getting this right matters
Many businesses fail at creating meaningful growth and/or are stuck trying to figure out how to accelerate growth. “Why aren’t people rushing to buy my product in droves?”
There are many reason for this. However, in most cases, I can trace it back to two core issues.
First, their product fails to achieve love-ability, the wood. Second, they throw gasoline, the marketing, on it before they have created a sustainable, repeatable model to convert potential customers into paying ones, the match. As such, there is no fire!
However, they continue to pour gasoline all over it, yet little to no flame ignites.
They are marketing a product that is not ready to be marketed. They are throwing hordes of resources at marketing and development, yet they haven’t created a proven and tested conversion model to demonstrate that they can create customers at any velocity and with a meaningful ROI.
The result…your competition is running all over you.
You need to first ensure that you have a “must-have” product. Second, you need to ensure that you have a proven model to convert visitors into paying customers. Only then should you turn up the volume marketing. We build fires.

Frequently Asked Questions
Fire is a combination of two mission critical elements. First, it is a product that people can’t do without, they love it. This is the wood. Second, it is a conversion optimized process that converts potential customers into paying ones, regularly and predictably. This is the match. You can’t have fire without both. Most business pour hordes of money into marketing, throwing gasoline on the fire, before there is even a flame.
It has become paramount that you think about marketing from the pre and post conversion efforts. You should always be building your marketing assets such as your social media audience, blog, email list, SEO, SEM, etc… and generating a steady flow of traffic so you can collect data.
However, you should save the big, expensive campaigns and press releases until the website is actually converting traffic at the level you are needing. If your website isn’t converting at that level, then you shouldn’t be investing any significant resources on marketing because that is not going to solve your problem.
Once you have a process in place that is converting visitors at the rate you need to eclipse your business objectives and KPIs, then and only then should push the pedal-to-the-metal marketing.
If you do not have a product that people love, then adding any marketing, any more features, or anything else related to growing your customer base will be met with demise. All of your time, effort and resources will be wasted.
The reason for this is because you need urgency and focus. You want to market your product to customers who have an urgent problem that they need to solve now. And you need your product to solve the problem better than anyone else.
If not, your sales cycle will be long and arduous and getting people to commit will be difficult, if not impossible.
A product that people love is one that they cannot do without.
Go ahead, ask your customers “if you did not have my product what would you do?” If their answer isn’t something to the effect of “I would be up the creek without a paddle,” then you need to do more Customer Development and testing.
I have seen way too many companies/products in the market that have been developed “in a box.” Meaning founders or product manager has an idea, and is so confident that this is the big one, that they go right into developing and marketing the product.
Unfortunately, they do this before first tuning into the market and listening to what it has to say.
If you are a product manger or start-up founder, you need to invest the time and resources, up-front, to conduct the proper Customer Development. And you need to do it continually without stopping. And please do this before you write one line of code. This will help you ensure that you have:
- Identified the right market for your product
- Built the right features to meet the needs of that market
- Tested the correct methods for acquiring and converting customers and
- Deployed the right resources to scale the business
My ideal customer is an early stage startup or an established enterprise whose primary objective is rapid customer adoption. Brand building is important, but first and foremost you need a large base of customers to build a brand within.
We also work best with customers who have an iterative mindset and are always willing to question their most closely held assumptions about their business.
You will also need to have a flexible website, or have us build it for you, and have a flexible environment.
We will be generating creative ideas at a very rapid pace. As such, we will need to iterate quickly and flow in the direction of the data analysis. If your web team takes weeks to implement changes then you are not an ideal customer. Now, if we are your web team then you are set.
Essentially, if you can and/or are willing to…
- Question your most closely held beliefs that you have about your company and your products
- Test those ideas to capture data that then proves the validity of your assumptions
- Quickly create and launch a test in minutes and move in the direction that the data is telling you, not in the direction of your assumptions
- Let your customers and the market determine your business model
Then, you are my ideal customer.
Conversion optimized websites and sales funnels are simply put “performance-based” websites and sales funnels. I believe that 2018 is the year that sales funnels begin to replace traditional websites. The reason for this is because people are looking for, and needing, more ROI from their online efforts.
As such, your website should be a conversion machine. Each and every aspect of it should have KPIs. These KPIs then become the basis by which you reverse engineer a sales funnel. The KPIs are your goals.
Now, each funnel should be continually tested and optimized to transcend the goal(s) and the performance of the current version.
Velocity then become critical. Velocity of cycles is now paramount. How fast can you fail? How many cycles can you complete in a specified time frame?
Keep the good, throw out the bad… rinse and repeat.
