A content marketing funnel is a visual step-by-step system that helps marketing brands attract potential customers. The funnel helps guide those customers through the journey of awareness, to consideration, and then to conversion or a paying customer. At each stage of the funnel, the user intent is different, meaning that your content will follow different goals and results.
Top Content Funnel: Awareness
This content should attract attention, show the value of your product or service, and capture new and curious customers. This phase is often the first time a potential customer has heard about your amazing product or service.
Middle Content Funnel: Consideration
Normally in this phase, you are starting to build a deeper relationship. Your content generates engagement and leads, and the customer is more aware and actively considers your product or service. This phase’s content focuses more on providing in-depth product or service information. Don’t forget to show case how your product or service will be better than your competitors and why the customer should choose you!
Bottom Content Funnel: Conversion
