In this episode, Kunle speaks with Rohan Sheth, the CEO and Co-Founder of Direct Heroes. Over the last five years, a tremendous amount of focus has been placed on the Messenger marketing platform built on Facebook’s messaging functionality.

Rohan as the Founder of a dedicated Instagram messaging CRM had a deep understanding of how engagement can be nurtured and honed within the Instagram direct messaging eco-system. Rohan explains how Instagram DMs work, why not is the time to aggressively build your Instagram messaging list, why open rates sit at +85% and he explains a viral loop flow that is guaranteed to maximise brand reach and engagement on Instagram. ----------- SPONSORS: This episode is brought to you by: Klaviyo This episode is brought to you by Klaviyo – a growth marketing platform that powers over 25,000 online businesses.

Removing Unintended Road Blocks in the Checkout Process

Retailers often focus on engaging shoppers at the top of the funnel, which typically involves onsite user experience optimisation, and driving traffic. On today’s episode, Greg Greiner from Bolt discusses why a focus on the bottom of the onsite funnel - ‘checkout’, is equally important to focus. According to Baymard Institute, 30% of shoppers cite friction at checkout as a major impediment to not completing a purchase and 70% of all shoppers abandon their carts at the bottom of the funnel. Greg is the head of Product at Bolt, an eCommerce checkout solution that works a range of eCommerce platforms like Magento, BigCommerce, Salesforce, NetSuite, Woocommerce, and any headless eCommerce solution. According to Greg, Bolt’s remit as an eCommerce checkout solution is to speed up the checkout process and improve conversions. Bolt reduces standard guest checkout sessions times from over a minute to just 30 seconds. This episode will help you understand checkout performance benchmarks as well as checkout best practises to deploy in your checkout flow in a bid to improving conversions. ----------- SPONSORS: This episode is brought to you by: Klaviyo This episode is brought to you by Klaviyo – a growth marketing platform that powers over 25,000 online businesses.
