A Summary of

Marketing funnels in simple terms

View original

Marketing funnels are the paths that users take to reach some desired endpoint (e.g. subscription or purchase)

To determine the effectiveness of your marketing channels, you must answer:  - What customer acquisition tools are effective?  - Is your funnel improving or worsening over time?  Answer these, then work on optimizing your funnel.

How to “debug” your marketing channel

  • Consider the paths that different users take to your website or product - e.g. advertising.
  • Consider the cost per user and the effectiveness of these paths.
  • Do not be afraid to disregard an ineffective channel. 

Which part of your funnel should you focus on?

  • Start by getting people to the bottom of your funnel.
    • This confirms that people actually want your product. 
  • Begin to look at drumming up more interest at the top of your funnel to expand your market. 
  • But do not go overboard at the top of the channel.
    • Spend the bulk of your time in the middle of the funnel to determine the steps in the middle that drive users to the bottom of the funnel.
