So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

Stuart McKeownHow to Write Amazing Case Studies That Convert & Drive Sales

Writing Awesome Case Studies

Many companies can talk a big talk, but how many times have you ever heard someone call themselves The Best at something? It can be easy to portray yourself as being the best, but often harder to convey to potential customers (with data) that you actually are.

But there’s one way to do this well, a way that shows how customers interact with your product, how they use it and most important of all – what results they get.

Yes, that’s right we’re talking about case studies. A good case study achieves a lot of things (more on this later) but the main area it overachieves above everything else is that it shows that your product or service is capable of solving problems (that it’s built for) and fulfilling needs of your customers.

Writing a good case study isn’t necessarily easy, in fact it’s easy to write a bad one. Or at least in my experience a boring one. Case studies don’t need to be boring in this day and age.

They can however be costly to produce, ranging upwards of $2k just for copywriting alone. Most startups either can’t afford to pay that or generally don’t budget for it. As a result, the case studies get left in the lap of someone on the marketing team who produces something that’s best effort.

Can you make high-quality, high-ROI case studies that make your brand look great without hiring an expensive professional copywriter? We think so.

We write in-house case studies on businesses that have used our product in cool or interesting ways like Shopify and ESL, without hiring any outside writers.

To give you some insight into how well this performs for us:

Where to Find The Best Stock Images

Stock Images are a great way to liven up your online material. However, to many people they’re synonymous with cheesy and inauthentic photos…

Cheesy Stock Images

…well maybe except this one.

A good stock image has the power to significantly improve the aesthetic appeal (and conversion rate) of your content. It can reinforce a message, help form a connection with users or even just add a bit of excitement to what is normally a bland or text-heavy page.

The power of a high quality image is something we can all agree on, after all they do say that a picture is worth 1000 words. Something else we can all agree on is that we don’t want to have to break the bank in order to get access to these pictures (which has been the case for many years *cough* iStockPhoto *cough*).

Well, we’ve got good news right here in this post. Over the last few years a large range of sites have popped up that provide free stock images for commercial use, and we’ve put together a guide that will help you find the one that’s right for you.
