What Are So-Called Funnels?
Funnels in marketing
Funnels in marketing are a process in which potential customers are guided through a series of actions, for example, to buy a product or service. This process is also known as the customer journey. Specifically, potential customers are targeted through advertising, email marketing, social media ads, website visits, and other actions.
These actions are designed to pique the interest of customers and encourage them to learn more about the product or service. On the basis of this, the purchase decision or, in the case of lead funnels, the contact, will ideally be made.
Lead and sales funnels
Both sales and lead funnels serve as a process in the targeted identification and approach of potential new customers. The difference lies in the final phase of the funnel:
In the sales funnel, this is usually the classic purchase of a product or service, which is subsequently followed by the “after-sale” and “loyalty” phases (see cover image). In the lead funnel, on the other hand, the classic purchase decision is replaced by the development of contact and a relationship with potential customers. Only when this “lead” has been established, further measures are taken to encourage purchases of products and services and deeper business relationships.
Ads and landing pages as the most important milestones in the SEA funnel
In the field of SEA marketing (“Search Engine Advertising”), the funnel, whether for sales or a lead, begins with the potential customer’s search query on search engines such as Google or Bing.
The first “action” in the process described above is always the ad played out in the search network. This should ideally answer the query so well in its limitation to 3×30 characters in the title and 2×90 characters in the text that the searcher is curious enough to click on the ad. By clicking on the ad, the searcher then lands on a landing page, whose complexity has no limits and should now satisfy the searcher’s need in its entirety. The landing page is thus the decisive factor for successful conversions in the SEA funnel.
