6 Tools to optimise the conversion funnel

Index Content

The conversion funnel is a tool used in Inbound Marketing related to the costumer journey or consumer journey, from the moment they come into contact with our brand until the purchase process is completed. Read on in our blog article about the conversion funnel. When starting an Inbound Marketing strategy, it is essential to set objectives and to plan all the movements we want to make. In this way, it is essential that our conversion funnel is mapped out before starting to work on it.

We differentiate all the parts that make up the conversion funnel: ToFu, MoFu and BoFu. Conversion funnels allow us to accompany our customers to become registered or potential customers or to complete the purchase of a product or service. In addition, it allows us to strengthen family ties to achieve a higher degree of loyalty.

Knowing how important it is to have a conversion funnel, let's discover how to make one and tools that help us optimise our funnel.

  1. TOFU, ATTRACTION: creating a landing page

    A landing page is a tool that converts users into leads, so they are fundamental to the growth of your business. It can be the first point of contact between the user and your company. If they click on an ad, register for a webinar or download an e-book, it directs them to the landing page. It is crucial that the landing page has a form with multiple fields that users can easily complete. The main goal of landing pages is to convert users into leads. A well-executed landing page can achieve higher conversion rates than a normal web page. Knowing their personal data and information allows you to personalise the experience with each of them.

  2. MOFU, CONNECTION: delivering valuable content

    This is the part where you have to give your visitors something in exchange for their email address. Lead magnets, such as e-books, guides or free courses, are an effective way to provide something of value on your landing page. To promote this magnet, we recommend creating campaigns on Facebook and Instagram to quickly validate and test your channel.

    Also, at this stage the customer moves from the knowledge stage to the interest stage. And since all email addresses are pre-collected, it gives you the opportunity to create a series of email nurtures to share educational content about your product. This way you exert a composure of authority and referral with consumers.

  3. MOFU, DELEITE: sales and decision-making begins

    When users begin to make a decision, you should start offering them any products or services that may contribute to their purchase decision. This may include product demonstrations, extended free trials or special limited-time discounts.

  4. BOFU, CLOSE: Tighten and nurture your relationship

    In the final stage, you will be able to verify that your funnels are really working, as you will have results and data to analyse. By analysing and studying our conversion funnel we can know what the bounce rate of our website is at each stage to find solutions. By analysing the personality and behaviour of our customers, we try to fine-tune our guidelines to increase sales. With the results obtained, we will reach the necessary conclusions to change our strategy. In addition, we will get to know our best customers better to continue offering them exceptional attention and to keep them trusting us.

In addition to the steps we must follow in each of the stages of the conversion funnel, we are going to recommend tools that optimise the process.
