Although it might vary by company or brand in general, a sales funnel is in V-shaped diagram following the best know marketing model – AIDA.
A starting stage with more lead prospects, in which they are aware of a problem, started looking for a solution, and become aware of your business through content marketing, social marketing, email campaign, search results and other campaigns.
I – Interest
In the interest stage, your prospects start to decrease but the chance of a sales conversion increases. They begin to engage with your company by asking questions or ask for more information.
D – Decision
A stage in which the prospects start deciding based on the answers given to them or information they gathered.
A – Action
The final stage where the prospect takes the action – to purchase your product or service.
All potential customers start from the top of the funnel, from being a stranger to being aware of your product or service, then you’ll convert them into potential customers that engage and buy from you.
Remember, a good sales funnel will help your business to bring more leads to your website and convert them into sales while limiting the loss of any potential customers.
