HOW TO BUILD A SUCCESSFUL FUNNEL

- Lead capture funnels, this is a short funnel, to which we send traffic to our landing page, where we exchange contact information in exchange for valuable content. This content has no cost, after leaving your data on our landing page, the user is directed to our thank you page, in which we also inform you that you will receive an email with what was promised so you can download it.
- Lead cultivation funnels , in this funnel we work by giving content, gifts and building an interest to our leads before selling to them. With which if we manage to capture your interest we can tag it to send it to the bottom of the funnel.
- Online sales funnels , this funnel starts from the previous one, the user already has an interest tag. You will send him an email with an irresistible offer, promotion or 2 for 1 offer, then direct him to the payment and purchase confirmation page. The interesting thing about this funnel is that you can do remarketing on Facebook or email, making another offer to customers who reached the payment page, but did not make the purchase.
- Remarketing in Facebook Ads or Email Marketing with a sales funnel, this is a funnel that makes a difference in your profits. With them you address customers who came to the purchase process, but made the purchase. These customers have already shown great interest in your product, they are at the bottom of the funnel. Therefore, through paid ads or email, you have to propose new offers or remind them of your product. These campaigns are very successful and influence your ROI since they tend to be cheaper campaigns, and with a high result.
- Up-sell to new customers , this funnel is based on making a new irresistible offer to the customer. It has to be a complementary product that adds value to the main product. This offer can be made directly on the thank you page or through an email after a few days of making the purchase. This funnel will also impact the increase in your average ticket.
