World’s Chilliest CBD Email Welcome Flow (Email Copy Review)

Welcome flows have 23x the conversion rate and 4x the click rate (Klaviyo) of standard emails. 85% of CBD companies’ welcome flows are generic or non-existent. With a welcome flow, e-com companies can increase their revenue up to 320% (Invesp).

The world’s chilliest CBD gummies & CBD oil is a great brand to analyze because they are far from traditional. They do a great job of differentiating themselves using:

  • Amine
  • A uniquely fun brand voice
  • The social mission they stand behind

They use a pop-up to collect visitors’ email addresses. After going through their funnel as a potential customer, I notice a chance for them to sell more CBD products. Today, I’ll be focusing on their welcome flow.

CBD Company’s USPs

This CBD company’s most prominent USPs are:

  • Home of the Original CBD Gummy
  • Helping pay for people’s bail since 2017
  • Supports criminal justice reform
  • 4.9 Stars from 4000+ reviews
  • 100% THC & Lab’s Test
  • Organic USA-Grown Hemp

Many of these USPs aren’t enough to make the brand stand out in the CBD industry, but how the CBD brand presents them sets them apart.

They’re the only brand that uses Amine exclusively:

The brand voice is like no other CBD company; while most use premium and professional wording, they use phrases like:

  • “That’s !@#$’d up.” (One liner on mission page)
  • “Get dope deals all week.” (Home page copy)
  • “LOOK, MA! I CREATED A WEED BRAND.” (Subheader on Home Page)

Their social mission of supporting criminal justice reform and paying for people’s bail with marijuana charges speaks to where their heart is as a company.

They emphasize their dealers and their support of decriminalizing cannabis as a drug. The company combats the disparities in the criminal justice system. Putting their money where their mouth fits perfectly.

Together, all these factors create a unique experience for the new subscribers. This is how I’d use these elements to create a CBD email welcome flow to optimize their current one.

Defining the Rule of One

The rule of one governs every decision you make about your messaging.

World’s Chilliest One Reader

Their one reader is a person who feels like cannabis is unfairly treated. 22-year-old who’s a liberal & social-conscious entrepreneur balancing a lot of different responsibilities. They’re solution aware.

World’s Chilliest One Offer

$4.20 off the first order.

World’s Chilliest One Promise

The CBD company guarantees to refund your money with no questions, and you don’t have to return the product.

World’s Chilliest One Big Idea

It’s not pot, it’s CBD that’ll help you chill out organically from stress and anxiety. Help us fight against the negative image of cannabis because you know how ridiculous it is.

Welcome Email Flow Assessment

Since their brand voice is so unique, they can bring new subscribers into their world with a flow. They send one email to welcome you, introducing you to their most popular products. They do send a second email to reinforce the first email. The third email is perfect.

  • Conversation rate
  • AOV
  • LTV

Let’s break down their welcome email.

Messaging Hierarchy Breakdown

The messaging matches their expectations. The one reader doesn’t have any obvious objections, but the goal of a welcome series is to thank them for subscribing, so starting with that is perfect. Instead, I recommend sending a sequence of 5-7 emails to build rapport with the new subscribers so the CBD company can set itself further apart with its messaging.

This CBD brand is missing a major opportunity to increase their:

Next, let them know what you have to offer. Insert your biggest benefits. Keep it short, sweet, and simple but go further than a quick email thanking them for joining.

Offering a discount works. But every CBD company offers 20% off.

The email copy is easy to read.

The one reader’s biggest objection is CBD’s associations with cannabis, so it’s pot.

The biggest benefit for the reader is that CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effects so you don’t have to worry about those effects.

The 2nd most important objection: CBD is questionable legally and there’s not enough proof that it works.

The 2nd biggest benefit: CBD is legal on a federal level since the 2018 farm bill.

The 3rd most important objection: most CBD brands are too serious and are taking all the fun out of empowering yourself with the plant.

The 3rd biggest benefit: The CBD presents the benefits of the plant in a relatable and entertaining fashion.

1st Welcome Email Flow Subject line

Does the messaging match the pop-up?

Yes. The messaging matches but there isn’t much personality. So the funnel doesn’t match the brand.

Are the one reader’s expectations met?

They send a generic, “Welcome to….” Optimizing their subject line is the best place to start to find their open rates.

I’d use a subject line like:

  • “Introducing NotPot CBD; Open this for $4.20 off”

1st Welcome Email Flow Preview Text

The preview text is non-existent with the code where messaging should be.

I’d use a preview text like:

  • “Get help soaring over stress”

1st Welcome Email Flow Hook

1st Welcome Email Flow Subject line and subheading assessment

They reinforced the welcome with messaging in the header of the email repeating the subject line.

Then they use a GIF but it may distract the subscriber’s focus from the CTA. I recommend using gifs in the non-selling emails in the flow.

I’d use an opening line that meets the one reader where they are at in their head:

  • Say hello to feeling better
  • Less Stress Begins Now.
  • Glide into your wellness transformation with 20% off.
  • Use code: newlife

I’d insert a CTA action immediately after the photo.

Email body copy assessment

They opted to highlight each of their best-selling products, which is a great way to introduce new subscribers. To optimize the email, I’d focus on what CBD has to offer. Using research, the one reader is familiar with CBD but doesn’t know much about it. If they click the CTA, then I’d use this section to build up the value of CBD using social proof and statistics.

Ensure your copywriting makes your one reader feel special, appreciated, and a part of something. Provide opportunities to interact with a brand; list the best sellers or a link to your blog.

First welcome email flow CTA

Does the CTA match the subject line?


CTA assessment

  • Shop (Insert Brand)

I would change the call to action to Discover this Dope Deal to connect to the unique offer of $4.20 off.

Risk reducers and the closers?

Their guarantee migrates risks. But I would add customer reviews and/or testimonials to increase the trust.

Body copy assessment line for line (line-level)

The body copy describes the best-selling products. This can create value so the new subscriber knows what products other people love.

Then I’d let the one reader know what’s in CBD to help them with:

  • Anxiety
  • Pain
  • Stress
  • Sleep

For the sake of the campaign and this email, I’d choose the most popular product based on sales and reviews. There is nothing wrong with all the best-selling products but sometimes having too many choices is a bad thing. (Think about when you’re scrolling Netflix).

Finally, I would use a review from a current customer and then a personalized call to action. Whether they click the final CTA or not, I’d send the rest of the campaign.

CTA assessment

The “Shop (product name)” action works. Although I would opt to have more of the brand’s personality in the CTA button. But you don’t want it to be too long.

Risk reducers and the closers?

Their guarantee migrates risks. But I would add customer reviews and/or testimonials to increase the trust.

First Email Welcome Flow RECAP

Any disconnects with the flow?

There are no disconnects between the pop-up and the first email in the welcome flow. I would opt to introduce the brand and educate the new subscriber on CBD instead of showing the best-selling products. But I don’t think it makes a big difference. I would A/B test the order of the first two emails with a Frankenstein version of both.

Second Email in the campaign

Subject line

The subject line is simple, yet effective. The company wrote the email for a subscriber who is problem aware but may not know much about CBD as a solution. The audience is most likely a younger demographic so using the acronyms is perfect.

Preview text

Once again the preview text is code so the brand is missing an opportunity to convince a new subscriber to open their email.

Second Welcome Email Flow Subject line and subheading Assessment

The subject line and the subheading match perfectly. The copy is creative yet clear.

Email Body Copy

Body copy assessment line for line (line-level)

The body copy does a great down quickly breaking down frequently asked questions the new subscriber may have.

CTA assessment

The call to action is generic but it works. I would A/B test it with a more creative call to action.

Risk reducers and the closers?

There are no disconnects with the email flow because it flows perfectly with the first email and if the second was written a bit differently it would add up to it.

Second Email Welcome Flow RECAP

Any disconnects with the flow?

There is so what of a disconnect from the first email because they showed their top products and then educated the new subscriber about CBD. I would reverse the order. I would also combine the first email’s section about the brand with educating the subscriber on CBD. Knocking two birds out with one stone because you are leaving no stone unturned.

Third Email in the Campaign

Subject line

The subject creates urgency but it could do it in a more creative way.

Preview text

The subscriber gets preview text his time and it adds value to the subject line. Also, it reminds the new subscriber of the welcome flow’s one offer.

CBD email welcome flow email body copy

Body copy assessment line for line (line-level)

This time they list their best-selling products but with social proof. They use customer testimonials to encourage the subscriber to buy. I only posted one (no need for the whole email).

CTA assessment

The call to action is creative and it converts higher than a generic CTA. I would A/B test it with a more creative call to action.

3rd Email Welcome Flow RECAP

Any disconnects with the flow?

There are no disconnects with the email flow because it flows perfectly with the first email and if the second was written a bit differently it would add up to it.

Top of the Funnel: Not Pot’s Pop-up

CTA assessment

“Subscribe” is place holder copy. I would replace it with a specific CTA “Get $4.20 off”

Risk reducers and the closers?

I would add a short disclosure about respecting their privacy, not selling their data. The heard “Not Spam” is a creative way to reduce the perceived risk of signing up.

Bottom of the Funnel: Not Pot’s Product Page

The point of having a welcome flow is to sell products. Maybe not right away but at some point. So I always analyze the product page to complete the funnel.

Above the Fold

Right when the subscriber lands on the product page.

Below the Fold

Below the fold, they tell the story of the gummies.

They provide all the details about the ingredients of the gummies. I might move this section up since a lot of CBD users are health-conscious and want to know what they are putting their body. Since their demographic is younger.

CBD email welcome flow social proof

Customer reviews from social media and previous customers show proof that their customers love their products.


The Chilliest CBD Brands Recap

Their CBD email welcome flow is incredible but still has a few shortcomings. I would be able to 2x their welcome flow’s ROI by making a few changes to the sequencing and adding a few more emails. The CBD email welcome flow sales funnel is a money-making machine for the anime-inspired brand.

Don’t send a “Welcome to {Insert brand}” email with 20% off (every CBD brand does that). Don’t send them to a newsletter. Instead, focus on selling.

CBD email welcome flows: how to craft the industry’s highest-converting emails

“320% increase in revenue from welcome emails???”

E-com companies can 2x their ROI with 4-6 emails. But only 39% of brands send a welcome email flow. I signed up for 100+ CBD companies’ welcome campaigns and came to the realization:

your CBD brand only has ONE chance to make a first impression in your new subscriber’s inbox.

You will most likely generate more sales from a new subscriber versus a long-time lister or a first-time visitor to your website. Capitalize on the momentum with automated emails welcoming them to your list.

Ask yourself, “what information are you sending your subscriber after they signed up for your email list?”

Greenlight your CBD brand’s growth (2x your ROI with an Email Checklist)

Messaging is Meaning. Meaning is Money

Engagement is at its highest during the welcome campaign. So craft meaningful experiences to convert your new subscriber into a brand advocate.

You have to know what to say to your new subscriber. Start with addressing their stage of awareness. Move them to the next stage of awareness with an email flow that anticipates their questions and differentiates your brand. Once you set up the triggered flows, watch the money pile grow as you bring your newbie up to speed.

Optimize your:

  • Subject lines
  • Preheader text
  • Mircocopy
  • Body copy
  • CTA button
  • Deliverability

Your email list is like building a universe. It is always thickening, expanding, growing, and tightening your online business. Your messaging has to align from your pop-up to your final email in your welcome campaign. Let’s start with how you are getting their email address.

How to find what to say to sell more CBD

Build your welcome email flow around your copywriting. The hardest part is determining what messaging will go in your welcome campaign. First, impressing your new subscriber with email 0 isn’t complicated. They are human so start by introducing your brand and highlighting your offer.

Avoid generic copywriting because you lose out on a golden opportunity to increase your ROI. From the data and your research, you should have a good idea of what to say.

Start with the rule of one to transform your new subscribers’ experience.

Define your one reader

Think about the problem that keeps them up at night. Write in your one reader’s inner dialogue to show them how your one offer solves that problem.

Set the tone. Exceed their expectations by letting them know what type of content they will get and how often they will get it. Humanize your brand by speaking to their:

  • buyer’s journey
  • behavior
  • what they need from your CBD products

Make your new subscriber feel something, “speak to the heart and the mind will follow.”

Your CBD email welcome flows’ one offer

Your CBD brand’s offer is the most important aspect of the welcome flow. Use a coupon code but add your brand’s personality to reinforce your brand. Test it.

To enhance your one reader’s experience, use:

  • body copy
  • product photos
  • gifs

Provide information about your CBD products. Make sure it fits into the context of what motivates them. Close the deal with a specific and actionable CTA.

Your one promise

Deliver your promise while moving people to the next stage of awareness with your messaging. Move them to the “aha” moment. Show them how your CBD product solves their problem and backed it up with credibility.

Your CBD email welcome flow’s guarantee

Provide proof so they know becoming the best version of themselves is capable. Speak to their hesitations. Show empathy with a customer’s story. You won’t have to hard sell. Show them the immediate benefit and the benefits after continuous use.

Tease the next email in the flow to pull them through the sales funnel. Make your email copy as human as possible. People buy from people.

CBD Email Welcome Flows Sales Funnel

Define the rule of one to craft your CBD email welcome flow funnel. Start with the CTA, then the body copy, and end with the headline/preview text. Craft a pop-up window using similar messaging to complete the sales funnel.

Get Your Customer’s Attention at its Peak

41% of brands don’t send a welcome email within the first 48 hours, even though open rates are the highest during welcome campaigns. CTRs are the highest too.

Welcome them to your list and introduce your brand’s story. Make sure you go beyond “Welcome to….” in your subject line to stand out. So many companies use it, and your subscriber may open it, but it won’t make a lasting impression.

Congratulate your subscriber for joining but don’t say thank you in your subject line. It is the second most common phrasing to use. Use as much personalization as possible.

Confirmation emails won’t get the job done these days. The top-selling CBD brands craft an experience in their new subscriber inboxes. To complete you have to hone in on what differentiates your brand.

How to Write Converting Subject Lines & Preheader Text

Get your subscriber’s attention. The CBD brand with the best marketing in the game uses social proof in their headline to show the one reader they’ve joined a squad of 100k+. Make a promise in the headline.

CBD companies like Not Pot have a mission that differentiates than from others. Highlighting the story influences your one reader to purchase because you’re a brand that aligns with their values.

Here’s a full breakdown of the World’s Chilliest CBD brand’s welcome flow.

Deliver on your promise with your CBD email welcome flows

Since you’re offering a discount, you are encouraging your subscriber to think about what you want them to buy. Cross-sell your most popular item or upsell a CBD product bundle you want to push.

A couple of your emails can focus on your brand’s story making an emotional connection with them since people don’t like to be sold to. Introduce them to who your brand is and what your products do. Empower every email with testimonials.

Tell your story with your CBD email welcome flows

This CBD business has an amazing story (see below), and stories are the best marketing tool. I’ve seen email 0 contain a snippet of the brand’s story or a whole email dedicated to telling the subscriber about the mission’s plot.

Tell them the history of your CBD brand and/or show them the future of your CBD brand. Tell a story of how you want them to feel. Make an emotional connection. Your story and your mission are often tied together.

Use CBD email welcome flows to tell your mission

Show your CBD brand’s values align with theirs. Show off your brand’s personality.

Be unique. Or you may increase the chances of your new subscribers hitting the dreaded unsubscribe button.

Add value to your CBD email welcome flows

Showcase the biggest benefit of your CBD product to show your subscriber the immediate and long-term impact of using it. Anticipate and address their objections. Present the 5-inch benefit and then the 5-mile benefit.

Provide a value by:

  • Sharing your most viewed blog posts
  • Cross-selling your other CBD products
  • Upselling a bundle
  • Limited-time offers

Your email welcome flow can sweeten your one offer with free shipping if the purchase is made within 30 days.

Back it up your CBD email welcome flows with social proof

Show your new subscriber what current customers are saying about your most liked products.

  • Show off product ratings
  • Use customer reviews
  • Highlight a case study
  • Highlight what big publications wrote about brands, products
  • Use badges/cerftiications
  • Your staff picks

Who’s your CBD Email Welcome Flow Coming From?

A detail you may overlook is who the email welcome flow is coming from. Some CBD brands prefer to use the first name to make it more personal.

How many emails do you send?

Your welcome series should be 4-6 emails with each email having a specific goal. That’s one goal for each email that adds up to the overall goal: sell more CBD.

Determine when to send it

Timing is everything, there’s no exception with emails. Some CBD companies don’t even have a welcome flow, they send you a newsletter or send offers during the holidays. All should send it immediately but others send the first email a few hours or days after signing up.

For example, when I signed up for CBD company A I didn’t receive an email right away (I got it a few hours later), but when I signed up for CBD company B they sent a confirmation email right away.

The chilliest CBD brand’s email 1 came only a few hours after the initial one.

Use the f sequence to determine the timing of the emails. Don’t lose momentum.

Customer-first, not product first welcome email flows deliver on your promise and build trust.

Make your offer pop-up

In 2023, nobody is giving away their email address. Determine what you are offering in exchange for their email address. Create urgency with a limited-time offer:

  • A discount
  • Free shipping
  • A free product
  • Free merch

In the example below, this CBD company encourages its website visitors to “Spin to Win” with a pop-up.

Pop-ups are the most prevalent way to present your offer to the visitor, but many companies elect to collect the email address in other ways. At the time, this CBD company doesn’t have a pop-up or a footer section to collect the website visitor’s email address. The one reader has to register.

Promise your one reader something in exchange for their email address. That is e-commerce 101.

This CBD company offers 20% off the first purchase and the other offers $4.20 off in the footer of their homepage. Not necessarily in front of the visitor’s eyes.

Wrapping up CBD email welcome flows

It’s your best shot to turn a subscriber into a customer. Make a great one-to-one impression, point your subscriber to the value, and increase sales. Remember, email still has an ROI of 3600%. Email copy is the simplest, fastest, and most cost-effect way to increase your sales.

Great CBD content writing – the simplest way to win over CBD customers in no time

Your prospects are “tired of the strain and the pain.” CBD marketing leadership, save the day! But how?

Create “THE” experience by matching your content writing with their level of awareness. Create content for your blog but make sure it is not one-size-fits-all. Marketers who prioritize blogging 13x their ROI because they use their blog at the top of your sales funnel to match their prospects’ level of awareness.

You convert visitors into brand loyalists by educating them on how to become healthier (tangible value). The informative nature of search-friendly content writing provides discovery opportunities for CBD products. You write your content based on your audience’s level of awareness and move them to the next stage so they’ll opt-in.

Use Breakthrough Advertising’s Levels of Awareness

Aligning your prospect’s level of awareness with their position in your sales funnel increases revenue (up to 34%), according to a SuperOffice case study. Advertising icon Eugene Schwartz defines the five levels of customer awareness as:

  • Unaware: A person who isn’t aware of a problem. They aren’t looking to improve their health.
  • Problem Aware/Pain Aware: A person with health issues but doesn’t know what to do to become healthy.
  • Solution Aware: A person who knows what to do to become healthy but doesn’t know what solution they want.
  • Product Aware: A person who knows your product can improve their health but isn’t sure if the product is the right one for them.
  • Most Aware: A person who knows about the product and knows it is for them but needs more information to purchase.

Writing content for your one reader’s level of awareness generates sales from leads, creating engagement and brand awareness. Crafting content tailored to their expectations ensures you grab their attention on the ultra-competitive first page of Google’s search results.

What influences your CBD content writing

“Your words are your web currency.” — Ann Handley

Although 43% of people scam blog posts, the top-ranking posts are at least 1,285 words. You can sell what they want in the headline, subheadline, bullet points, and images to create a positive user experience. Join the conversation your one reader is already having in their head.

For example, if your audience is problem/pain aware, you would write content showing them:

  • you understand their problem
  • have the solution to the problem
  • how your product is the best solution
  • prove that your product is the best solution

For example, your topic can be about the benefits of reducing stress with CBD gummies.

You can mention the different factors that will influence their purchasing decision. Nurture your one reader into the next stage of your sales funnel with the appropriate content.

The best option for the top of your sales funnel

Nearly 49% of marketers are trying to align content marketing with the buyer’s journey, according to Contently. Craft your content for your most motivated traffic.

Streamline your sales funnel with content targeted towards driving problem-aware/pain-aware prospects into the solution-aware stage. You provide value to push customers through the journey without advertising.

“You hard sell the transformation so you can soft sell the thing that provides it.”

Ryan Schwartz, Copyhackers

Embedded CTA’s convert visitors into new subscribers as you build trust with knowledgeable tips in the format of “How-to’s.” You persuade them down the funnel using their level of awareness until they convert into a customer (because sales in the only tangible result of marketing to your CEO).

You can measure content marketing’s impact on the bottom of your sales funnel with Google Analytics. Most marketers use page views to measure a blog’s success.

CBD content writing – be as personal as possible

Writing hyper-focused blog posts establishes your CBD brand as an authority in your industry. Don’t get it wrong at the top of your sales funnel by crafting generic blog posts that mimic your competitors. Motivate your one reader to read your content by showing them you feel their pain.

You increase your post’s personalization by matching your CBD product’s benefits with their awareness level. Make sure you show them the value of using your CBD product; don’t tell them how valuable it is.

Other personalization tips:

  1. Use the word “you”
  2. Show empathy by speaking to the internal problem and not just the surface-level problem
  3. Do more than state a solution, show how you will relieve your one reader

Personalized the distribution:

Your content marketing strategy depends on where your one reader hangs out online. Marketers use social media and email to distribute blog posts to their one reader. Sharable content attracts a broader audience, and your business will grow as people link to your posts. You should do market research to find out the top 2–3 channels to market your blog posts.

78% of consumers trust brands that create customized content, and 70% of consumers prefer to learn about a business through organic search results. Personalization leads to relevance, so don’t be afraid to mention specific solutions.

CBD content writing leads to magnetic results

Focus your content on one reader, and you’ll produce results in line with what you spend on marketing. 82% of marketers that consistently blog earn new customers. Now that your post attracted your prospects to your site, it is time to get their email addresses and convert them into active subscribers. Finally, you will have a lifetime customer.

“Businesses that blog experience twice as much email traffic as businesses who don’t,” according to Optinmonster.

Since your goal is to convert prospects into satisfied customers, your blog posts must capture prospects’ attention with valuable information. Prove your CBD product works by addressing your audience’s questions before they ask them.

Each blog post is an opportunity to show your one reader a lifelong transformation. Once they trust your advice, they’ll want more.

You can increase your customer’s lifetime value by turning your one reader into a brand loyalist. All you have to do is match their level of awareness with your blog post content.

Conclusion for CBD content writing

Ace your content writing by making sure it is actionable, compelling, educational, and entertaining. Soft sell your CBD products. If your audience isn’t ready to buy, educating them with content can move them off the fence.

5 Reasons Your CBD Marketplace Product Page is Losing Sales and are robust marketplaces like Amazon, but the competition is fierce. The generic product pages on these sites don’t sell as well as landing pages because you can’t optimize them. Creating designated landing pages can increase conversion rates up to 300 percent.

Table of Contents

Using content marketing and ads, you can drive your traffic to your landing page with various methods.

  1. Social media post/ads
  2. SEO
  3. Emails
  4. Retargeting ads

Health and Wellness companies get 266% fewer leads on Amazon because of all the different offers. The number is probably similar for CBD companies on marketplaces. It’s hard to sell visitors a better, happier version of themselves when your landing page doesn’t have a single goal.

The competition, the layout, and the level of specifics can’t optimize your conversions. I’m not suggesting getting rid of this valuable real estate. Instead, you should look into the benefits of driving traffic directly to a designated landing page.

Matching the message your visitors are expecting creates trust leading to conversions. Using a sales conversion funnel, you can drive your existing traffic to your product page.

1. Marketplace product pages limit your messaging

You can craft messaging on your marketplace product page to capture your top leads, but typically you can’t control the user experience. These websites have a set template, and you can add content in the middle of the page. But at the bottom of the page, it’ll still have competitor’s items, etc.

On most of the sites, the above-the-fold setup is pretty standard versus the full customization using a platform like Unbounce or even your current website platform.

“The first thing you do in selling is to set up the selling environment.” — Joseph Sugarman

Landing pages thrive because of the rule of one

They are crafted with one reader, one big idea, one promise, and one offer. With a landing page, you can focus on a single call-to-action. A landing page speaks to a specific group better because the tailored content makes the imperative human connection, which is rare online.

Created with the target audience in mind, you can make the users experience a relaxed buying environment. Your copy should be clear, crisp, and skimmable.

With a landing page, you can focus on a single call-to-action. A landing page that speaks to one reader performs better because you can create a relaxed buying environment that is focused on messaging for one reader.

2. You can’t account for your audience’s level of awareness

Your marketplace product page can speak to your audience’s level of awareness but not necessarily right away. Typically, your audience will see dull bullet-pointed benefits upon their arrival, the standard hero shot, and some screenshots of your product.

Your landing page copy can use Schwartz’s 5 stages of awareness to win over customers repeatedly. You select your customer’s level of awareness based on where they are in the sales funnel. Influence their intent with “copy that is triggered towards the 20–30% of your ideal market segment.” — Joanna Wiebe

Every product solves a problem, crafting copy for a problem-aware audience is your best bet (but not if the audience is solution-aware, so do your audience research first).

Since landing pages are usually the third stage of your customer’s journey, you must create desire with your product’s benefits. Reduce the friction in the funnel with specific information your one reader is looking for.

Humanize your social proof to move your one reader to the next stage of awareness, and the next stage of your sales funnel. Make sure your testimonials are realistic and credible. You want to use testimonials that persuasively reinforce what you’re already saying about yourself.

3. Your marketplace product page doesn’t speak to their biggest pain point

84% of people trust online reviews because it is honest people using the product. Online CBD marketplaces won’t let you be great because you can’t prioritize your messaging the way you can with a landing page. If you search your Amazon reviews for VoC, you’ll find the messaging to convert your audience.

When visitors arrive on your landing page, use your customer’s language to convert them. Write with empathy in mind to position your product as the item that has been missing from their life.

  • Focus on what’s most beneficial to your ideal prospect
  • Think about the “benefit of the benefit” when they use your product
  • Then guarantee that benefit to strengthen your offer

Create meaningful imagery with visual language using words that trigger your one reader’s senses and emotions. Be as specific as possible. Transformational change is just a click away; can you convey it relevantly?

4. Is your CBD marketplace optimized for SEO?

70% of marketers see SEO as more effective than PPC, according to Impactplus. Most likely, you’ll be sending direct traffic to the landing page from ads on social media, banners, or your newsletter/campaigns. But playing by Google’s rules can drive targeted organic traffic to your website.

“Long-tail keywords often produce a higher ROI.” — Instapage

You can show your product in the best light when you engineer your SEO strategy based on long-tail keywords. You can match your messaging with the user’s search intent, boosting SEO traffic. Increasing the relevancy of the page increases its quality score.

SEO long-tail keyword best practices included

  • Publishing a custom URL
  • Putting the keyword at the front of the headline
  • Have the keyword in the crosshead

5. Does the marketplace let you collect their email addresses for further transactions?

You can’t analyze your traffic on their site or collect their email address. If you create a landing page, you can measure the KPIs that are important to you.

Data drives sales, so measure your conversion goal based on the action you want your visitors to take. Pop-up forms collect email addresses, and alert bars can create urgency. Optimize your landing page for more purchases using heatmaps, screen recordings, and snapshots to track your customer’s journey. You’ll enhance the effectiveness of your offer as you get more information about your target audience.

Increase readability and lower your bounce rate with clear headlines, creative crossheads that sell your value, and a responsive layout that tells a compelling story with visual clues, colors, and branding.

Conversion-focused landing pages outsell generic marketplace product pages because they boost conversion rates, lower cost-per-acquisition, and increase traffic. Improve your visitors’ clicks and watch your revenue grow.
