He is an expert on pay-per-click advertising — where advertisers pay a fee each time their online ad gets clicked on by a user. His latest tool MobileMonkey, a Messenger marketing bot could be a real Gamechanger!
Larry said his greatest life skill is an ability to look at software systems and figure out the loopholes, tricks, or strategies that can spur interest:“There’s little tricks you can use. Say, if you want more people to engage with tweets, use emojis. I put those dumb pizza emojis in all my tweets and it dramatically increases my engagement rates. I did a test with tweets that had emojis and ones that didn’t, and the ones with emojis were about 30 percent higher.” (source Boston Globe).
