Optimize Your Email Signups
Brandon Hilkert has created something I have been thinking about for years: A tool that gives you the ability to show different email subscribe forms to different visitors For example if someone signs up for your newsletter, the next time they come back to your website, they won’t see the same subscription form. They will see an offer to join your free course (or whatever you want them to see). So instead of your visitors seeing the same offer and email optin form every single time they visit your site, you can tailor the messages they see based on where they are in your funnel. That is incredibly powerful. This particular took is email service provider agnostic, meaning it will work with any provider that provides a html subscription form. Listen to this episode to learn more about how this could help your business and if you want to buy it for yourself you find the Funnel Tool here Let me know if you purchase it and how it works out for you.

Automating Customer Feedback
Mark Copeman, Co-founder of Customer Thermometer stopped by (virtually) to chat about how customer feedback can improve your business. The benefits of getting customer feedback are obvious things such as being able to rectify a mistake and deal with issues quickly and effectively. However one of the things that really sparked my interest about customer feedback was the effect is can have on employee morale.

Automatically Dealing With Repetitive Tasks
When Will Davies started Car Next Door, he knew he needed to systemize and automate right from the beginning. Car Next Door is a peer to peer car sharing network that brings together people who own a car but do not use it all the time with people who need a car for a short time. While Car Next Door have a co-working office space, the majority of their client interactions happen through their website or over the phone. So they needed a platform that could Onboard new users, both borrowers and lenders Followup with users automatically Followup with borrowers who have over due payments Do all the repetitive tasks on a daily and weekly basis Automatically contact users who have not used the service in a defined time frame Will says that without an automation platform like Ontraport, he would need another 2 or 3 staff members just to figure out what is going on.

Customer Data Tracking Made Easy
Segment is a customer data hub that collects, translates and routes your customer data to all the different tools you are using. It integrates third-party apps with the flip of a switch. Literally, you flip a toggle in your account and Segment automatically integrates the tool with your site or app. Andy Jiang from Segment was good enough to come on the show and explain how Segment works and the benefits their customers see from using it. For me the the biggest benefit that a business would get from using Segment is that is removes the need to integrate code from all your different analytics tools. Instead you only need to install one piece of code from Segment. Segment then works for you behind the scenes to integrate all your tools, collect all your data, and then push all the data and analytics out to your tools.
