Sales Funnel & Inbound Marketing as Strategy

Now that you are beginning to understand the type of systems and content to place on your website, it is time to explain the processes of guiding your prospective customers down the sales funnel.  Certain types and styles of content posts are meant to attract, others are meant to covert and, even others are created to give the prospect a final push and close the sale.  The process is to slowly influence a potential customer of yours with content posts as they proceed to move down the funnel. This is not an exact science.  When a potential buyer is already moving through the funnel, one untimely content post can cause them to climb back up and you can lose out on the opportunity to bring them “IN”.

Strategies of the Inbound Marketing Process

     Today we will break down one of the most important inbound marketing strategies of them all, attracting, converting and closing the customer.  There is a famous quote by Alec Baldwin in the movie Glengarry Glen Ross, “ABC, Always be closing!”  While closing does lead to sales and is the ultimate goal in business to consumer and business to business marketing plans, inbound marketing takes somewhat of a different approach than the “Always be closing” or, every sales manager’s favorite term the “One Call Close.”
