Today we’re talking to our neighbor and easily the strongest guy in the marketing world, AJ Roberts. He was one of our very first guests, appearing on episode #17.
AJ has reinvented himself from being an overworked, broke gym owner who was struggling to now serving as the Chief Revenue Officer at Genesis Digital, the company behind Kartra, Ever Webinar and Webinar Jam.
AJ oversees sales, marketing and the customer experience, and is constantly testing and tweaking things to increase both the company’s revenue and the success of their customers. He’s got a million growth hacks he’s always experimenting with, quite of few of which you’ll hear in this episode. He also discusses some tactical ways on how he continues to increase his sales. We also go behind the scenes of how Kartra operates and how AJ is always searching for new ways to increase customer retention and keep the customers happy and continuing to use their software.
After you’re done, you’ll definitely want to check out our first show we did with AJ on how to create a system for creating systems as well as our episode with Paul Lemberg on how to 10X your company’s growth.
