The 3-Step Framework to Making Your Brand Stick

There’s a three-step framework to user onboarding. Ramli John, Managing Director at ProductLed, walks you through it.

There’s a three-step framework to user onboarding. And you can apply to your marketing efforts as well — to ensure that your brand is top of mind to your audience.

Adapted from psychologist BJ Fogg’s habit-forming framework, Ramli John, Managing Director and ProductLed and author of the new book, “Eureka,” explains how it applies to user onboarding journeys:

1. Make it easy. (Create helpful content that can grow your organic traffic.)

2. Increase motivation. (Explain the outcomes you give your customers.)

3. Add prompts. (Remind customers of your value.)

Listen to the episode to learn how to apply it to your content and user onboarding strategy.

You’ll also learn:

  • User onboarding done right
  • The importance of saying “no”
  • How Ramli secured his first podcast sponsorship for Growth Marketing Today.
