Ryan Porter regularly receives requests from big brands like Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Tinder, American Express, NBC, and others to create fun products for their events.
Plus, Ryan Porter is a favorite of both celebrities and editors.
“Our products have sassy messages like “f word” (Manrepeller) and “Heels,” which can be seen on fashion blog Bryan Boy, and classic favorites “As If” or “I can’t.”
“I wanted to make something to add to my arm party that also meant something to me.”
How did you come up with the business name?
“The name Ryan is a family name. Porter means “to wear” in French. The name just clicked.”
What is your favorite sequence to do with e-commerce apps?
“A popup email subscribe box with a discount via Privy.”
What issues have you been facing in your business as of late?
“Our problems used to be abandoned carts, but as of today, our recovery email success is 11% while the typical is 7%! Now, our biggest issue is that we have a high visitor rate, but people are not checking out.”
Why do you think that is?
“Since most of our items are personalized, I think potential customers want to think about what they want on their jewelry or keychain and hopefully come back.”
How did you find Fomo?
“I noticed it on other brand’s website!”
Why did you install Fomo?
“I wanted our potential customers to convert into sales, and I thought if they were torn between items, maybe they would see a customer purchasing it, and it would seal the deal!”
Fomo has a powerful effect on those potential customers on the edge. Customers are always asking themselves questions while on your site such as, 'do I recognize this brand?', 'does anybody else come here?, 'is this site legit, can I trust it?'
But once they see that other people do shop there, they’re more likely to purchase themselves.
Have you tried any Fomo competitors?
Do you have any stats you’re happy to report?
“4,831 impressions for the month.”
Do you have any ideas for the Fomo team?
“Perhaps create a more unique and fun box that pops up for customers.”
What is one thing you want customers to take away from your business?
“We are selling a feeling; our items are both sassy but also have meaning behind it. For example, I have anxiety, so we created an anxiety bracelet that has been popular because I think so many people can relate.”
“Also, since a lot of our items are custom, our customers can create an item that is truly meaningful.”
