As crazy as it sounds, he used Facebook and Google Ads to grow the world’s first professional cuddling company to $2.5M in net revenue. We’ll start off by giving AdWords beginners pre-vetted strategies that have generated his clients millions of dollars in revenue at an extremely low cost of acquisition. You’ll learn to think beyond the campaign with a Growth Advertising strategy. For the pre-seed or pre-launch entrepreneurs out there, we’ll demonstrate how AdWords can be used a simple test to determine interest from potential customers/clients in key target demographics. You’ll learn why AdWords is the easiest, most reliable way to A/B test messaging and how CTR can determine your product’s true value before you spend tens (or hundreds!) of thousands developing it. These tactics apply to virtually any industry. We will discuss case studies in cryptocurrency, blockchain technology, dating apps, and investment products. There will be ample time after the workshop for additional questions on how to apply the techniques to your particular industry.

Marketing an Early Stage Ed-Tech Company; The When, The How, and The Why

Marketing and selling ed-tech products is a notoriously difficult process; long sales cycles, legacy systems, and privacy issues make for a minefield of potential problems. Add to that being a startup with limited resources with paid advertising, and you have what at times can seem like an insurmountable issue. But you don't need to let these factors limit you - there are a few key channels that are proven and work for acquiring end-users, be it secondary or higher, teachers or admins, mobile or not. We will delve into these topics and break down case studies where it has worked for two successful companies, in addition to answering any questions you have and providing actionable followups. You can register for this Free webinar here: https://youdontneedacmo.com/edtech-marketing-webinar Speaker Bio: Chris Hanson is the founder of the unique gamified-LMS Eager, a platform integrated with Blackboard, Moodle and Canvas that analyzed behavioral data from the partnering systems to create actionable recommendations for teachers and parents. Eager's platform was sold to numerous Charter-schools in the tri-state area; helping students with disabilities, underachievement, and more - data privacy issues forced a pivot to higher-ed and ultimately a hiatus. Chris has since formed a number of tech companies, most recently founding one of New York's top SaaS marketing agencies, You Don't Need A CMO. He dedicates his free time to giving technical, practical marketing advice to non-technical startup founders like himself in marketing workshops.
