  • Stripe raises fees on European businesses. Users based in the EU will see price hikes for chargebacks, card processing, and USD payouts starting in April.
  • Advertisers keeping a close eye on TikTok’s search business. The company is currently beta-testing search ads, as a growing percentage of Gen Z turns to Instagram and TikTok for search instead of Google.

Anatomy of a High-Converting Webinar Registration Page

Contrary to popular belief…

Webinars are not dead.

In fact, they’re alive and swell.

We’ve got multiple clients scaling their ad accounts on the back of a well-executed webinar.

And one of the most important levers in the performance of a webinar funnel is the webinar registration page.

In this week’s episode of Inspector Lander, we dive deep on a killer registration page we found out in the wild from a company called Foundr.

If you do any work with webinar funnels — building them out, writing copy for them, or running traffic to them — there are a ton of actionable takeaways for you in this episode…

Including one super sneaky conversion tactic that we’ve never seen before.
