How to write effective Google Ads copy with ChatGPT:

Andrei shares tips to create Google Ads with ChatGPT that you can also use for your SaaS:

  1. INTRODUCTION Prompt: "You are a copywriter assistant. Your goal is to provide compelling copy for Google ads. We have a space for 30 characters for the headline and 90 characters for the description. You don't need to reply with anything special, soon I am going to give you more context related to the copy we want to create."

  2. FIND 5 MARKETING ANGLES Prompt: "Before creating the copy, give me 5 marketing angles for [insert your product]" We see that GPT already made some copy, and it's quite good. We want to go a layer deeper and generate more ideas.

  3. GENERATE 5 HEADLINES FOR EACH ANGLE Prompt: "Give me 5 Google Ads headlines (under 30 characters) for [insert product] within the angle of [your desired angle]." If you don't like what you got, just regenerate the prompt.

  4. GENERATE 4 DESCRIPTIONS FOR EACH ANGLE Prompt: "Give me 4 Google Ads descriptions (under 90 characters) for [insert product] within the angle of [your desired angle]." If you just don't like it even after regenerating just try a different angle.

Is this something you can apply for your SaaS as well? Let us know in the chat!

You need:

Launch Strategy 📈

7 launch lessons for your SaaS.

Usman shares how Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone in San Francisco. This keynote is known as "the presentation that revolutionized Apple."

7 lessons from the famous launch event of the iPhone that you can use for your SaaS:

  1. Understand your audience. Jobs knew his audience well. They were tech enthusiasts and developers, but also potential customers who needed to be convinced that this device was worth their investment. He acknowledged the skepticism around smartphones and addressed it head-on.

  2. Keep It Simple One of Steve Job's greatest gifts was his ability to break complex ideas into simple concepts. He presented the iPhone as a revolution in communication and entertainment. His message was clear: this device would change the way we interacted with technology.

  3. Create Emotional Connections Steve Jobs was a master storyteller who understands the importance of emotional connections. He shared personal stories & conveyed a genuine belief in the product’s potential to enrich lives. This authenticity resonated deeply with the audience.

  4. Learn The Rule of Three. Jobs believed that the number “3” is one of the most powerful numbers in communications. A list of 3 things is more intriguing than 2 and far easier to remember than 22. Steve Jobs divided his iPhone presentation into three sections.

  5. Introduce A Villain All great stories have a hero and a villain. The 2007 Steve Jobs presentation was no exception. He set up the narrative by introducing a villain - a problem in need of a solution: “Regular cell phones are not so smart and they are not so easy to use. Smartphones are a little smarter, but are harder to use. They are really complicated. We want to make a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been and super easy to use. This is what iPhone is.”

  6. Tell Stories Before Jobs revealed the new phone, he spent a moment reviewing the history of Apple, telling a story that built up to the big event. Stories can be brand stories, customer stories, or personal ones. Try to use the most relevant ones with your products.

  7. Have a memorable conclusion As the presentation neared its end, Steve Jobs introduced a surprise element: the visual voicemail feature. This unexpected revelation added an element of excitement and left the audience in awe.

Social Media Marketing 📈

Promote your SaaS on Short Form Videos:

Dohyun shares the single biggest mistake he sees people make when trying to advertise their SaaS product on short form social media is that they only make content that talks about their product.

In 1 month I grew a social media account for my product to 2.5 million unique impressions (pic included below) and this is the strategy that I applied to grow the account for my product.

This might be able to work if you know how to create viral content (which is also not an exact science since the feed algorithm is so random), but the better long term strategy imo is to make the vast majority of your content (60%-80%) NOT about your product at all and instead make it appeal to the customer base that you are trying to target instead.

What I mean by that is let's say you have 5 social media posts — make 4 of them engineered strictly to go viral in the niche your product is focused on and make 1 of them strictly dedicated to selling and marketing your product and its benefits.

Example: if your end customers are students, make 4 videos that DO NOT talk about your product and instead make funny student related videos like "when STEM majors have to do a reading assignment" or a truly information video like "5 study tips that helped me get straight A's"

Then once you start getting some views and momentum you drop the 1 video that is 100% about your product and pin that video to your profile so that when anyone comes to visit your profile a small % of them will view that video, learn about your product, and then convert to a user.

This is, in my opinion, the better strategy to approach social media because it helps build a longer term audience that repeatedly comes back to your account compared to if you only made videos about your product and tried to engineer for 1 shot virality.
