Ep. 87: How Decision Trees and Quizzes Offer Unexpected Opportunities For Explosive Business Growth With Nik Thakorlal

Interviews, strategy and advice for building your online business with your host Trudy Rankin. 






Today’s podcast guest is Nik Thakorlal, founder of quiz and data-generation software LeadsHook.  Nik knows more about marketing than just about anyone I’ve ever talked to, listened to or heard of.  And he has years of experience in what works and what doesn’t in both the online and offline marketing world.

Nik has some interesting and provocative things to say … things like why you shouldn’t make page speed the first thing you optimize in your lead generation funnel.  And why tyre kickers should be treated like gold, instead of annoying time wasters.

In fact, there is so much in this episode that I’ve included timestamps so that if you don’t have time to listen to the whole thing, you can jump to the part that interests you the most.

[00:37:19  Nik identifies an underserved market and an opportunity to use quizzes to fill it

[00:43:06  Why you should think about selling your leads when that lead doesn’t quite need what you have to offer
