Counterintuitive CRO Advice for B2B SaaS Websites, the Decision to Sell a Business, and Mental Health for Business Executives with Sahil Patel

Sahil Patel, CEO of Spiralyze, shares his journey to becoming CEO and introduces Spiralyze, a conversion rate optimization company. Spiralyze offers a unique tech-enabled service that combines an agency component with a SaaS product. They scrape data from 34,000 websites that run A/B tests to identify proven winners, which are tests that have been validated by multiple companies. Spiralyze uses this data to design, build, and run tests for their clients, offering performance-based pricing where clients only pay if they achieve a significant lift in conversions. Sahil also addresses concerns about statistical significance and the challenges of running tests with limited traffic in the B2B SaaS space. In this conversation, Sahil Patel discusses the differences in B2B marketing and the challenges of achieving statistical significance in experiments. He emphasizes the importance of taking big swing tests and killing losing and neutral tests early. Sahil also shares insights on the perishability of learnings and the pragmatic approach to testing in the B2B SaaS world. Additionally, he provides advice on managing mental health as a CEO and finding fulfillment in work. The conversation concludes with a book recommendation: Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson.
Key Takeaways
Spiralyze is a conversion rate optimization company that combines an agency component with a SaaS product.
They scrape data from 34,000 websites to identify proven winners, tests that have been validated by multiple companies.
Spiralyze offers performance-based pricing, where clients only pay if they achieve a significant lift in conversions.
Addressing statistical significance and limited traffic in the B2B SaaS space can be challenging but can be overcome with data-driven approaches. B2B marketing has meaningful differences compared to other types of marketing, such as lower traffic and different desired actions.
Taking big swing tests, rather than meek tests, can lead to quicker statistical significance and more impactful results.
In the B2B SaaS world, it is important to kill losing and neutral tests early to optimize resources and time.
Learnings from experiments are highly perishable and specific to the test conducted, making them less valuable in the long term.
Managing mental health as a CEO requires having a peer group, confidants, and seeking therapy when needed.
Personalization and customization are often overrated, and companies should focus on showing relevance and solving customer problems.
Finding fulfillment in work involves aligning your strengths with the rewards and characteristics of the environment.
The book Snow Crash by Neil Stephenson is recommended for its engaging story and futuristic concepts.

What is Kitchen Side?

One big benefit of running an agency or working at one is you get to see the “kitchen side” of many different businesses; their revenue, their operations, their automations, and their culture.

You understand how things look from the inside and how that differs from the outside.

You understand how the sausage is made. 

As an agency ourselves, we’re working both on growing our clients’ businesses as well as our own. This podcast is one project, but we also blog, make videos, do sales, and have quite a robust portfolio of automations and hacks to run our business.

We want to take you behind the curtain, to the kitchen side of our business, to witness our brainstorms, discussions, and internal dialogues behind the public works that we ship.

The Content Ops Challenge, Scaling Great Work, Saving the Internet, and the Risks of SEO-Only Content with David Baum (Relato)

The Content Ops Challenge, Scaling Great Work, Saving the Internet, and the Risks of SEO-Only Content with David Baum (Relato)

In this conversation, Alex and David Baum discuss the problems and challenges in content operations (Content Ops) and the need for a new generation of software and tools to support the way people work today. They explore the disarray in content strategy, the gulf between content managers and writers, and the risks of an SEO-first approach. They also emphasize the importance of preserving the human internet and the value of human-generated content in an era of generative AI. Overall, the conversation highlights the need for a more holistic and human-centric approach to content operations. In this conversation, David Baum and Alex discuss the future of the human internet and the challenges of algorithmic delivery. They explore the cynicism and lack of serendipity in content today, as well as the limitations of algorithms in discovering new content. They also delve into the incentives for choosing the human route in content creation and the scarcity of organic hits on search engine result pages. The conversation concludes with a call to action to check out relato.com and connect with David Baum on LinkedIn.

Key Takeaways

Content Ops is a problem worth solving as there has been significant change in the way teams work and organize content, but there is a lack of proper software and tools to support this new way of working.
The current approach to content ops is often fragmented, with homegrown solutions and a lack of robust platforms, leading to inefficiencies and wasted time.
There is a gulf between content managers and writers, with different perspectives and problems. Content managers focus on strategic goals and outcomes, while writers face challenges in managing multiple clients and tools.
An SEO-first approach to content marketing is risky due to increased competition, volatile search engine results pages (SERPs), and the need for high investment and velocity to compete.
Preserving the human internet is crucial as AI-generated content threatens the unique voices and creativity of human content creators. Human-generated content is essential for training new models and maintaining the value and authenticity of the internet. The future of the human internet relies on finding a way to classify content as human or not.
There is a need for more serendipity and less algorithmic delivery in content.
Discovering new content is a challenging problem that current algorithms have not solved.
The scarcity of organic hits on search engine result pages incentivizes content creators to choose the human route.
