Create A Sales Funnel
What is a sales funnel?
A sales funnel is how you turn a prospect, lead, or someone on your list, into a customer.
- Does your website or opt in have a sales funnel?
- How many emails should be included? Is there a magic number?
- What should the calls-to-action be?
- How should you structure your emails?
These are all typical questions that come up when we begin discussing sales funnels but you’re missing the first step: The opt-in.
Your lead magnet or opt-in must grab attention. In fact, this is so important, it’s the first step in creating an effective sales funnel.
Studies you show you have less than 8 seconds before someone decides to stay or leave your site. Before you do anything else, you want to capture their email address with your lead magnet or opt-in so your sales funnel can work. Without the opt-in, without capturing their email address, the sales funnel is doomed to fail.
Let’s review the secret the pros know: Sales funnels have been proven to double or triple your conversion rates. If you don’t have one, it’s time you get one.
