How do pink cows, purple velvet shoes, and stone pillows help you beat the competition?
Well, they probably don't. But creativity will.
In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we chat with Lee Eisenhuth, who leads design at PeopleFun. They make games like Wordscapes. We also chat with Alice Guillaume, the Senior Director of Marketing at Applovin. She left a Wall Street job with Morgan Stanley to do something much more interesting: mobile marketing.
We chat about:

- A/B testing
- what ads work for clicks, and what ads work for conversions, and why they're different
... and much more!
Lomit Patel leads growth at IMVU. Before that, he led performance and digital marketing for Roku. He also ran customer acquisition at Texture, which Apple acquired and turned into Apple News+
At IMVU, Lomit cut customer acquisition cost by a factor of three. And, he's now recouping the cost of advertising 3X faster than before.
Artificial intelligence, intelligently applied.
In this podcast episode, we'll chat with Lomit to learn what he did, how he did it, and what the results are.

In this episode of Growth Masterminds, we take a peek behind the martech and adtech curtain with a reporter who's covering all the biggest stories in the space.
What we talk about:
- You have a very broad view of the martech and adtech ecosystem, and what’s happening in it. It really feels like an era of major change right now with lots up in the air … the death of cookies, the threat to IDFA, increased legislation and demand for privacy … what are the major changes happening right now in your opinion?
- I want to chat about the ROI Index Singular just released. I’ll mention the name of a platform … you tell me what comes to mind ...
- Facebook & Google
- Apple Search Ads
- Twitter, Snap
- AdColony … Vungle … Liftoff … Applovin
- Sometimes you get to see behind the curtain of some major marketing platforms or ad networks. Tell us something we don’t know …
- We’ve seen plenty of startups worshipping the goddess of growth-at-all-costs in the super-funded startups of the last few years, perhaps thanks to a cash-as-a-strategy effort by Softbank and others pouring money into a leading contender in the space. That seems to be changing now .. how do you think that will impact advertising and marketing?
- What kind of advertising do you personally like? What works on you?
- How do you see the marketing world changing in the next few years? And how do you want it to change?
Show notes and a transcript will be available at Singular's blog shortly.
