Key Takeaways:

"You need to have your landing page, at least the homepage optimized for mobile, meaning that the speed and loading time is quick. And your pictures are optimized and things like that because that's how people check out our business. They're on their phones. They're checking out what's happening." - April Meese

"I've had students that have actually applied what I teach them and made an extra $5k to $10,000 in just that weekend, just from extra sales, because they got people to get off the fence. They had a little bit of urgency. And they had a little scarcity. And they had a deadline, and it moved people to take action. And that's what you want." - April Meese

"Are you appealing to them to buy something for themselves? Or are you marketing it as a give a gift? Actually, I like a little bit of a combination of both, where you say, hey, buy a gift certificate, and I give you $25 gift certificates. Instead of giving a discount, you're giving a value add, and then you can use that $25 gift certificate for a friend. And you see how that's a win-win." - April Meese

"A cold audience usually needs more social proof. They need to see more testimonials. And usually video testimonials are going to be super powerful here." - April Meese

"Your warm audience, they already know you. They've seen some of your content. So this is going to be more before and after pictures. This is going to be probably like a catchy GIF, like an eye-catching animation." - April Meese
