Replo Weekly: Chopping Wood, Carrying Water

Replo Superfriends!

Last week was CRAZY.

We won't rehash the tragic details, but by golly was it a rollercoaster week.

And while all the chaos of the world was happening, we were all also... working.

Building our brands, brick by brick, pixel by pixel.

During moments like this, we are reminded of a Zen Koan that serves as a guiding light in all parts of our lives.

"Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water."

No matter the circumstances of the external environment, we do what we must do to keep moving forward.

Now, we aren't suggesting that you ignore the happenings of the world or not react or engage with it.

Do what you must.

Rest when needed, emotionally, physically, mentally.

Find your center along the way.

Chop wood. Carry water.

July is almost here - we're halfway done with 2023.

Most of the world is going to start losing steam.

Taking their foot off the gas.

Getting comfy.

But Q4 is coming.

No let up.

Time keeps moving forward.

We hope to help you do the same.

Leveraging Customer Reviews For eCommerce Success with Opinew's Tomasz Sadowski

Design To Convert Podcast

Leveraging Customer Reviews For eCommerce Success with Opinew's Tomasz Sadowski

Social proof! Clarity on fit and sizing! Risk reduction!

These are some of the reasons why reviews are crucial to any ecommerce store's tech stack. 

Don't believe us?

Find someone close to you that shops on FashioNova.com. Watch them shop.

We're willing to bet good money that very few conversions happen on Fashion Nova where the buyer does not check the reviews before adding to cart.

So many businesses are a few review program optimizations away from unlocking the next level of scale.

As with many types of apps in the Shopify ecosystem, there is a seemingly endless collection of review apps to choose one.

We had a ton of fun talking to Tomasz, who started Opinew as a college project, and grew it, sold it, and still gets to run the biz. 

He spoke candidly about the challenges brands face when setting up a strong reviews program and choosing an app. That candor was followed up with universal applicable tactics to help brands build a reviews system that best fits their unique needs, even if you don't use his.

What we loved the most about the openness is that you would not expect it to come from the founder and leader of a business in one of the most cutthroat verticals in the ecommerce ecosystem.

The level of honest was refreshing and we're humbled that Tomasz brought such nuanced takes to our show.

If you're a long time newsletter reader but you have not listened to or watched Design to Convert yet, we promise that you'll have a great time by starting with this episode.

New Viral Creative Format Just Dropped: Fake Podcasts!

New Viral Creative Format Just Dropped: Fake Podcasts!

Years ago, King of Hustle Gary Vee said that the best content for any social platform is content that is native to the platform.

Taking that lesson further, the best ad content looks like the most engaging organic content of each platform. 

Savannah Sanchez is back at it again with incredible ad creative that feels like an organic post.

Podcast content is core to the Tik Tok experience.

(If you didn't know that, what part of Tik Tok are you on???)

Maybe it's a bit cringe for some, but done well, the "fake podcast" format hooks the audience in a way they are used to being hooked.

Critically, it allows you to set up the narrative structure of your product offer, benefits, reasons to buy, objection handling, and closing with the least mental friction for your potential customers.

We're cheeky in how we framed this creative format, but knowing Savannah and the scale her team works at, we know this is something worth testing ASAP

Build trust, reduce risk, create clarity in the mind of your buyers.

Weekly Big Idea

Build trust, reduce risk, create clarity in the mind of your buyers.

Social proof, as we mentioned above, can make or break your conversion rate.

Tl;dr on social proof --> ratings and reviews about your products and brand.

Not having social proof could prevent a sale from happening.

Have bad social proof, or worse, faked social proof could hurt your brand and take you down. 

Not sure if your social proof

Here's a great social proof framework from Logan Storti:

Does your social proof show results that your clients/customers have gotten (numbers are always best)?

Does your social proof handle objections that your ideal customer has?

Does it align with different segments of your ideal market?

To do this make sure you:
• ask people what specific results they achieved
• have them mention the problems they were experiencing before
• include social proof that handles objections (too expensive, not enough time, etc.)
