You might be employed by a business with a six-stage marketing funnel. That's OK. Simply put, a marketing funnel is a framework. It demonstrates how buyers proceed from learning about a firm to making a purchase. Depending on the business, there could be a slight difference in the structure. We'll concentrate on a four-stage marketing funnel in this course: awareness, consideration, conversion, and loyalty. In the videos that follow, we'll go over marketing tactics and thoroughly dissect each stage. But first, let's briefly go through the advantages of a marketing funnel before we get into the techniques. This framework's first advantage is that it takes the buyer's journey into account.

The marketing funnel urges you to take into account the experience a customer has with the brand rather than just experimenting with random marketing methods or sticking to what generates sales at the bottom of the funnel. When did they initially encounter the brand? How do they feel about it? And what do they do following their initial encounter? Now, these kinds of inquiries assist you in your role as a marketer by helping you truly better understand the brand and the company from the viewpoint of the customer. The next advantage is that your marketing plan will be optimized.

The funnel makes it easier to spot and close holes in all marketing initiatives. Perhaps your display advertisements aren't reaching your potential customers, or perhaps they do, but the webpage they visit loads slowly and prevents them from continuing. These types of problems may be found and solved by improving your funnel. Finally, if you take into account the buyer's journey and improve your marketing techniques, you'll boost conversion rates and generate more revenue. For instance, if you run an online store, you may monitor the proportion of prospective consumers who end up making purchases. A one percent conversion rate is achieved if 100 individuals see a product page but only one of them makes a purchase.

Prospective clients have a better experience when your funnel is optimized. The corporation may generate more income as a result of this rising conversion rate. A marketing funnel's overarching objective is to increase sales for the company while giving customers a fantastic experience. All marketing initiatives must be carefully optimized. This makes sure that marketing success contributes to reaching organizational objectives. One of your most crucial responsibilities as a marketer may be to figure out what moves customers along the funnel and what doesn't.
