so what exactly is a marketing funnel well a marketing funnel sometimes called a sales funnel conversion funnel or just plain old funnel is a system that allows you to track the customer journey from having no idea who you are right through to becoming a lifelong loyal customer.
Every step in between the beauty of the funnel is that it provides a graphical representation of what can often be a hard subject to visualize the fact that a marketing funnel is also often shaped like a funnel helps to as it makes it easy to visualize the process that your customers go through on their journey. The way to create your own marketing funnel can be as simple as taking a look at your business and how you acquire customers what are the stages of prospective customer takes and the journey they go through that moves them from having no idea that your business existed to becoming a loyal customer.
My suggestion is to use something along the lines of the elevation marketing process which goes traffic conversion ascension elevation step one is to identify where your prospective customers let’s call them leads are coming from are they finding you through social media a search engine or a paid ad you’re running once you’ve identified your traffic sources you can start to compare.
Fit them against one another and may the strongest traffic source win as a side note these leads who have never heard about you or your business before are called cold once your lead has arrived at your website storefront or landing page the next step is to get them to make a micro commitment and take some form of action if you’re selling a low priced item like a pack of gum then that action could be a sale for selling a higher priced item like a car.
The micro commitment could be a smaller action like going for a test drive the point here is that you want to encourage them to take the next logical step in the relationship whether it’s exchanging their contact information like their name email or phone number or even agreeing to a follow-up meeting at this stage your lead is now warm all right at this point in the funnel you’re going to be working with fewer leads than you started with but that’s okay because those that are still with you are a higher quality lead and are more interested in what you have to offer we’ve also taken some form of action or micro commitment and are a lot more open to what you have to offer next it’s at this stage that you want to begin the follow up process and really bring the value continue to nurture your leads by providing more valuable and helpful information.
But at the same time don’t be afraid to ask for the sale if you’ve done a good job at guiding them along their journey up until this point the next logical step should be your core offer product or service when you’re warmly buys and exchanges their money for your product or service they become hot it’s now time to really bring on the value and elevate your relationship with your customers following up with your recent buyers is one of the fastest ways to solidify your position as a business that truly cares buyer’s remorse is very real and is alive and well across all markets.
so the first 24 to 48 hours after making a purchase is a critical time to calm any anxieties and affirm your new customers decision to do business with your company it’s also unexpected which makes it an even nicer surprise and part of the system to elevate your customers into brand evangelists who tell their friends family co-workers and sometimes even strangers about just how great your business is the beauty of this funnel is that when you lay everything out stuff gets real real fast there’s no hiding a flawed strategy or justifying a bad campaign just is what it is and that’s the power of the funnel to quickly and visually illustrate your customers journey in order to eliminate any choke points or areas of friction.
So you can create a system that allows you to generate leads convert them into customers and then turn those customers into lifelong and loyal brand evangelists powerful stuff so
