How does a conversion funnel work?

As mentioned above, this is the track that turns a lead into a real customer. It is the process that a customer goes through on your website to buy your product. Along the way, if your website meets or exceeds your client’s expectations, the client will be much more likely to make his way down the entire funnel. However, something could scare or distract the client, such as expensive shipping cost or a shiny link to another website. These factors would worsen your funnel.

How to make the funnel work

In order for the conversion funnel to work, you have to create some awareness and provide incentive for your customers to stay. This is to allow your consumers to first learn something about your company via your landing page.
