Chris Do and the Futur are on a Mission
In this SamCart Takeover, we look into The Futur—the creation of Emmy award-winning designer and director, Chris Do.
The Futur plans to “help one billion people make a living doing what they love (without losing their soul)” with the #1BMinusOne project. They are doing so by providing courses, coaching, and community for creatives.
That’s awesome, but as brilliant as Chris and his team is, there’s always room for improvement. We’re going to break down how The Futur looks brighter with SamCart.
One thing that stood out to us is The Futur’s website. It’s big and beautiful with tons of moving parts.
However, it can be really easy to get overwhelmed and lost in it all. There’s free and paid content that touches on everything from business skills and resources to creative and personal development…videos, a podcast, merch, a blog and tons more.
We’ve created a sales page for Chris with a minimalistic design aimed at beautifully displaying one product, so that it shines on its own. This makes the decision to buy easier for the customer since this product isn’t competing with dozens of other products on a busy storefront.
With the amount of content, products and services The Futur offers, the potential to increase Average Order Value (AOV) with Order Bumps and One Click Upsells is nothing short of ridiculous. “Crush” is not a strong enough word for what they could achieve here.
Here’s a bird’s-eye view of what The Futur and many online businesses look like. Every time someone needs to click on something else, or keep scrolling, the potential to lose that sale grows exponentially.
You’re competing with phone notifications, TikTok videos and eight-second attention spans. That’s why it’s important to eliminate any friction in the sales process.
This is where SamCart comes in to create the shortest path to the goal, a straight line.
The Teachable Alternative
The Futur uses Teachable to host online courses. Though many of Teachable’s top earners actually use SamCart to sell courses, we feel SamCart has some advantages over Teachable. The Futur could also keep everything under one roof with SamCart Courses, so they won’t have to maintain accounts with several platforms. We can easily import their students, too!
At the time of publishing this post, the #1BMinusOne project helped nearly 29,000 people on the quest to one billion.
It would be an honor to help them get there.
SamCart Takeovers are quickly becoming one of our favorite pieces of content to create. It’s also humbling when creators we’re talking about take time out of their day to check us out.
It’s a problem we have.
