SPI 084: 3 Secrets of Successful Selling—How to Turn Browsers into Buyers with Derek Halpern

The Smart Passive Income Podcast Logo

In this session of The Smart Passive Income Podcast, we talk selling and turning browsers into buyers with my good friend, Derek Halpern from Social Triggers. Out of all of the other websites I’ve mentioned here on the blog and on the podcast, Derek’s site is probably referenced the most, and that’s because Derek always has information worth sharing.

He definitely delivered in this episode as well.

Derek was first featured on SPI back in June of 2011 when he and I recorded a video of him critiquing The Smart Passive Income Blog, giving us his thoughts on what I could do to improve the conversion rate of my email list sign-ups. At the time, it was one of the most popular blog posts on SPI.

Three months later, I wrote a followup post after I implemented a lot of Derek’s strategies to share the results of his advice—and yes, they worked. Like a charm.

In this session, you’re going to listen to us talk a little bit about how Derek got started online (which is a very interesting story Derek doesn’t share very often), and then we get into 3 secrets that will change and shape how you approach selling to your audience. He even shares a marketing strategy with us that he’s never shared on any other website before, including his own.
