Today we’re going to talk about funnels and doing them right for optimal results.For starters, What’s the difference between a funnel and a website?
- A Funnel begins with a landing page as opposed to a home page
Benefits of funnels v. websites
- Funnel is more targeted and direct. Audience has one choice
- Website will perform better with SEO and general marketing
Downside of Funnels v. websites
- Funnels are virtually SEO resistant. Google needs pages/etc, Funnels are typically 3-5 pages that are in sequence
- Websites can be almost too broad. Most websites have a 3-5% conversion rate if they’re really good. Where a funnel can be 10%+
So, how do you use a funnel effectively?
- This is where you’re getting into the big leagues because you’re going to put some ad dollars in. And, you’re probably going to fail at first.
- The funnel actually begins with your ad. If the message in your ad doesn’t get someone thinking of you as a solution, you’ve lost them before they even click.
