Copywriting & Messaging

In total, we worked on four main areas of the business: (1) digital marketing, (2) copywriting and messaging, (3) design, and (4) Facebook advertising. For digital marketing, we developed email and social media campaign strategies, and conducted psychographic research and developed buyer personas. For copywriting and messaging, we wrote copy for email campaigns, product landing pages, course descriptions, social media posts, and supplemental learning materials, like the Growth Map for John’s Complete Digital Library.

Buyer personas provide
critical audience insights
How do you get your customers to take action? By getting to know them on a deep level and serving their unique needs. Buyer persona development is foundational to any strategic marketing plan and was the key to our success for the Live2Lead campaigns we delivered for John’s live event.
Our Live2Lead event
promotion helped produce
2019 marked John Maxwell’s sixth Live2Lead event, and afterward, he reflected, “With all respect to every person who helped us with the previous five, it was our best Live2Lead ever. We had our most simulcast sites (326), our highest live-site attendance (over 1,700), and together we had over 40,000 total participants! I love seeing numbers like that.”
As part of the event promotion, our Facebook ads reached 227,933 users, produced 683,777 impressions, had a CPC of just $0.69, with an engagement rate of 2.81%. Working together as a team and collaboratively with our client, we were able to produce incredible results and impact the lives of leaders all over the world.
