Important Lessons & Highlights Covered In This Case Study
The path from not knowing anything about digital marketing to becoming a paid member
Digital Marketer teaches consumers through their Customer Value Journey, going from unaware to aware to engaged. Their content-first strategy leads the acquisition funnel.
The company focuses on attracting new customers by using social media, blog posts, and advertising through paid channels to generate customer interest in their services.
Community’s role in the course environment
The secret sauce with the community has been figuring out where your people already are. For example, Facebook is popular among the Digital Marketer audience and that’s why they advertise and build their community on Facebook
On Scalable, Founder and Executives are communicating on daily basis. This is why they prefer Slack group for Scalable rather than Facebook.
Umbrella Accounts and how they are being used
Digital Marketer are using the Umbrella Account feature in their Elite program. They have an elite parent tag that gives access to five seats/accounts to the users. They further explain how easy it is to create child users through Memberium.
Is Scalable a spinoff of Digital Marketer, or does it have its own customer acquisition system?
Richard Linder explains how Scalable.co‘s acquisition system is unique and distinct from Digital Marketer. Scalable is heavy on assessments and less on the coming in on specific lead magnets, buy something small and ascend rather, it’s more on assessment to consult.
Scalability Score and who has access to it
Scalable has organized its tools based on scale constraints. If clarity or demands are an issue, users can come in here and say, “This is an issue, what should I do?” And the technology will begin to sort and say things like, “Hey, if you’re struggling with clarity, here are some tools and training”
They are also big fans of frameworks and believe in the clarity compass. If users are struggling with clarity, the clarity compass is the best option. It’s their alignment tool which ensures that everyone understands their mission, strategic anchors, core values, and 12Q or three-year target
Incorporating Personal Brand into your Membership website
Richard explains the concept of Transferable Value, and how the architecture of a brand involves a great deal of intentionality. When they build new brands, they first build the framework, according to your character diamond.
They start with a methodology – “What is the thing that everyone who is a brand ambassador, whether they have equity, a partner, or a founder, can point back to?” That is what allows them to build a brand.
Richard shared some insights on Cohort training and how they develop asynchronous training and have moderators lead cohort-based classes.
He further explains that they have cohort-based courses, which can simply duplicate their on-demand training, change the delivery mechanism, and ensure that the person receiving all of the feedback is also the person leading that cohort using these groups.
