Today’s guest on The Membership Site Success podcast is Nathalie Lussier!
Nathalie is the founder of AmbitionAlly, a design-first, user-first company that Nathalie runs with her developer husband (how convenient! I need a transcriptionist girlfriend…) to produce attractive, functional WordPress plugins that appeal to female audiences.
Among the excellent plugins that Nathalie and her husband have authored are PopupAlly, an easy-to-implement, “polite” popup that can double your conversions, AccessAlly, a membership plugin with deep Infusionsoft and Ontraport integration, and others.
Nathalie has been through the Silicon Valley tech wringer AND the Wall Street strainer, after which she cleaved off to start her own freelance business, and eventually her current business.
Nathalie really knows her stuff and in this episode she shares about:
– The trend of women creating beautiful things online…and taking men along for the ride!
– How to use design to crystallize your brand
– The value of making things people actually want to use
– How to approach busy and influential people in a way that makes them want to do business with you
– The unique challenges of marketing to women
– What it means to be a “sensitive marketer”
– What it’s like to work with your husband
