#04: Brian Moran’s secret to paid traffic and massive growth at SamCart
By Dave Rogenmoser
When Brian Moran was growing up, his father gave him a piece of advice that stuck with him: learn to sell. After playing collegiate baseball, studying marketing, and running two online businesses, Brian launched SamCart, an e-commerce shopping cart software that helps small businesses get their online stores up and running. SamCart made quite the splash — and proved Brian truly knew how to sell — when it turned into a $1 million dollar business overnight. In this episode, Brian chimes in on why friendships are invaluable when growing a business, why badly performing ads are nobody’s fault but your own, and how he’s designed a new type of signup funnel. Instead of pushing his traffic to a demo, Brian has a genius strategy where’s he’s effectively able to recover his marketing spend immediately, create a high-intent audience, and warm his audience through content.
