Our latest guest told the story of how she learned to find the ‘why’ – why a potential customer should act on her conversion objective.
One of the things I really liked about her story – she didn’t only focus on the final ‘why’ the customer should buy the product or work with the company. Much like the sequences of eight Micro-Yes(es) taught in our free marketing course Become a Marketer-Philosopher: Create and optimize high-converting webpages (https://meclabs.com/course/), she considered the ‘why’ for key steps of the customer journey.
That’s just one of the lessons you can learn from Tate Gibson, Head of Growth, Peak (https://peak.ai/), on this episode of the How I Made It In Marketing podcast.
Gibson manages a transatlantic team of seven marketers located in the US and the UK and a marketing budget of $2 million.
Peak has $119 million in investment funding raised to date, with SoftBank leading its Series C round.
Some lessons from Gibson that emerged in our discussion:
