E387: Using Chatbots and Influencers to Grow Your Ecommerce Brand

It’s five times more expensive to acquire a new customer than to retain an existing one. 

So the saying goes. 

But as an ecommerce seller, there’s a plethora of tools out there that you can leverage to engage your audience, expand your customer base, and make your brand more profitable. 

My guest for this episode is Paul Baron, who is a Chatbot Architect at The Chat Agency, a marketing solutions provider that helps brands rank, build lists, and boost conversion rates using chatbots and influencer marketing. 

Paul will be sharing how he got into ecommerce and how he eventually made the deep dive into digital marketing. He’ll walk us through where his marketing strategies have found the most success, how he gets people into lists, and how he builds a network of brand ambassadors using various marketing funnels. 

You’ll also learn why it’s not just knowing your audience, but also knowing how they engage with your brand, that can take your business to the next level.
