  7. 7. Growth Plan 1.01 You don’t need to produce all the content yourself. You can co-promote your customer success stories on your blog, YouTube & social media. Consider interviewing some of your most active users (who have had significant success), and record a story around their experience. If they give a consent, you can also share their top achievements on your public case study website page, social media pages or a Youtube channel. Conversion marketing ideas Have an exit intent popup on your website. This will increase conversions, decrease bounce rate and limit the feeling of “annoying screen” compared to a standard popup. Capture email addresses in return for a free access (i.e. a game, how-to-guide, or a newsletter subscription). Once you get their email address, it will be easier to convert users to paid customers by following up with them through email. You can also collect subscribers on your own website to avoid heavy prospects drop-off with external site redirect. That way you can further segment your lists and send them reminders, if they do not install your app. Showcase comparison with other solutions. Your prospects might not know or resonate for your unique selling point, as compared to other alternatives. Make it easy for them to comprehend by highlighting it on your website. Here is an example: Incorporate a live chat or a chat bot. Studies show that having a website chat increases the chance of conversion by 80%. Simply making yourself available for questions also increases trust from prospects and gives your new brand more credibility. Delight marketing ideas Now that your audience has converted, it’s important to keep them happy and engaged, so that when the times comes, they renew their subscription and don’t churn. Make sure you’ve got your automated email workflow set up to constantly engage and follow up with your customers via email and share valuable content. Just don’t overdo it! Not many more than an email a week, otherwise users might unsubscribe or mark you as spam! Emails to consider: Prepared for KIDS EDUCATION BUSINESS Page of7 9

You can create a #30daychallenge or #mylittlegenius campaign to let your existing customers share their experience with the world and also drive more traffic and sales to your app. To make your customers feel even more “special”, consider creating a closed club community on Facebook. Last but not least, bring your community together in a yearly event to talk about your vision, give credibility to the top partners and high engaging users. You can also have an online award ceremony for the users with most and best achievements. Mentioning new product developments is a good add-on to agenda as well. Advocate marketing ideas To incentivise your customers promote your app, consider launching an Ambassador Program. Set terms for perks or points that customers can redeem after reaching certain milestones linked to promoting your service with their network. To keep your users more engaged on the platform, set a leaderboard for top performers and involve gamification experience so they keep on coming back and are more motivated to not just tick a box, but also potentially earn more rewards. Of course, there is a security element, so you have to get users permission if they want to participate in your global leaderboard. Give users opportunity to get rewards by inviting friends. Have a custom referrer (tracking) link ready for each of your users. Having ready buttons to share link on social media, email template or copy it for web is a good start. Once a user reaches a milestone, prompt them to share their achievement with friends on social media. People often look for recognition from their peers on social platforms, so you can make it easy for them. Prepared for KIDS EDUCATION BUSINESS Page of8 9
