Welcome to the Perpetual Traffic Podcast, where cutting-edge marketing strategies are shared to help marketing directors, CMOs, and business owners achieve their goals. In this episode, host Ralph Burns welcomes guest Alicia Conlon Hurd, co-founder of Persuasion Experience, to discuss the importance of crafting compelling offers in marketing. The conversation revolves around the concept of offers, the different components of a funnel, and the series of micro yeses that lead to conversions. Alicia shares examples of offer optimization and highlights the need for continuous testing and optimization to ensure the longevity of an offer.

Understanding Offers

To understand the concept of offers, it is important to view a funnel as a series of touchpoints that guide potential customers through the buyer’s journey. An offer is what persuades and motivates individuals to take the next step with a business. The three core offers in a funnel are the authority beacon, the lead generation offer, and the sales offer. These offers serve different purposes and aim to elicit micro yeses from potential customers.

Crafting Compelling Offers

Crafting compelling offers requires thorough research and understanding of the target market. Alicia provides examples of offer optimization, such as repositioning the value of an offer or changing the way it is presented. By contextualizing the benefits and addressing the target market’s pain points, businesses can create offers that resonate with their audience and drive conversions.

The Lifespan of an Offer

The lifespan of an offer depends on various factors, including the market, the target audience, and the type of traffic being targeted. While some offers can be evergreen and last for years, others may have a shorter lifespan due to market saturation or changing customer needs. Continuous testing and optimization are crucial to ensure the longevity of an offer and to adapt to evolving market dynamics.

Learning from Failure

Failure is an inherent part of marketing, and it is important to embrace it as a learning opportunity. Alicia emphasizes the importance of research, strategy, and execution in marketing success. By identifying the reasons for failure and learning from them, marketers can refine their approaches and improve their chances of success.


Crafting compelling offers is a crucial aspect of marketing that requires thorough research, strategic thinking, and continuous optimization. By understanding the target market, addressing their pain points, and contextualizing the benefits of an offer, businesses can drive more leads and sales. It is important to view offers as an ongoing process and to continuously test and optimize them to ensure their effectiveness. By learning from failures and embracing the iterative nature of marketing, businesses can create offers that resonate with their audience and drive long-term success.
