  • I also just discovered KnowAds. The hardest part about online advertising is figuring out what works. KnowAds reveals your competitor’s campagins showing you exactly what’s working for them. You get to see their most successful ad copy & ad placements. Go to  productpeople.tv/ads and sign-up for an account.

  • And finally,  if you’re trying to set-up an online store, you need to use Shopify. I’ve tried setting up dozens of online stores for clients, and there are always so many headaches: handling payment gateways, multiple currencies, taxes, shipping rates. Shopify solves all of these problems for you. I want you to go to  productpeople.tv/shopify and get a 14 day free trial.

Notable quotes

Classic product myth: “Build and they will come. Just because you have a great product, doesn’t mean people will come.”

“Our best source for traffic is  www.better-restaurant-websites.com

“The people that come through footer links on our clients’ websites convert the best.”

“Don’t use Bootstrap for your app’s design.”
