For example, at the beginning of the sales funnel, prospect interaction is low and the number of prospects is high. This is the awareness stage where you do advertising or another form of low-cost, low-touch, broad outreach. The next stages have fewer people in them and require activities that take more time and attention. This is where you’d send emails, make phone calls, or invite qualified interested prospects to a webinar to learn more about your offerings.
Advocacy: Turning your customers into advocates is the ultimate evolution for nurturing current customers. Evangelism in the form of writing product reviews, posting about products on social media, and more can help drive more new leads for your marketing funnel. Having an external recommendation not connected to a brand can strongly influence prospects. Marketers can work to develop their communities to better support advocates, ask them to participate in case studies, or engage them around consumer-generated content on social media.
Plus, it’s even more difficult to find some architects that can sign a post-sale guarantee that protects that house from certain problems that may or may not appear, related to the construction process itself. Far too often, architects fail to deliver on time, and fail to serve the client once the house is finished by providing a written guarantee, and make it effective if needed. Horror stories: The house is finished, the client goes to live there and there are water leaks, the walls soaking water, and the architect never goes back to the house to fix those problems (though he’s responsible for that), so the client has to fix them himself (and it’s usually expensive).

Once the prospect is in the proverbial funnel, you've peaked their awareness. That's the first stage of the funnel. However, getting a prospect aware of you is no simple feat. Depending upon how they've arrived to your website (organically or through a paid ad), those customers might view your funnel differently and your opt-in rates will vary significantly. 
Okay, so death rumours aside, the sales funnel is in good health and every argument I’ve heard suggest otherwise comes from someone trying to create a selling point for one of their products. What has changed in recent years is how marketers use the sales funnel because the number of interactions between brands and consumers along the buying cycle has multiplied.
The bottle suit is a wetsuit for your bottle, also called a “beer bottle cooler” or “beverage holder.” Canned beverages require a neoprene can cooler or the convenient pocket coolie. Our can coolers and beverage holders are constructed with neoprene and nylon – compared to the old style foam can coolers. To keep the sun out of your eyes and cut the glare, try our feather light eyeglass visor. The dyed and washed caps and hats are proven retail superstars, and we offer them at the cheapest discount prices available.
It seems I have a dilema.I am a graphite fine artist and my niche is the New York Yankees and I want to help the faithfull celebrate the greatest team in the history of sports.I want to illustrate their present players greateness as well as those players in the past.I think one of the best ways would be to ask exactly what they want,what’s missing from other artists and what they would pay for.What do you think?
Unfortunately, brands often begin and stop their marketing efforts by producing content only for the first stage of the marketing funnel. As a result, they’re missing the opportunity for higher conversion rates that can be achieved further down the funnel. This involves attracting more visitors and leading them to a purchase decision through a series of well-researched and well-matched content pieces in various forms with the goal of ascending them from one stage to another.

Much of this is steeped in buyer psychology. The best marketers in the world know that there is a psychological process that must occur for prospects to whip out those credit cards and turn into buyers or even hyper-active buyers. One such person whose perfected this process is Russell Brunson, an "underground entrepreneur" who founded a company called ClickFunnels, a sales funnel SaaS business that empowers marketers from around the world to build marketing automation without all the hassle. 
Web traffic and search engine ranking is primarily a vanity metric for website performance. Important as they are, neither is more indicative of online business success than sales figures and conversion rates. Putting things into perspective, ecommerce websites with (almost) zero percent bounce rate, 15 percent conversion rates and 10,000 unique website visitors from low search engine rankings fare far better than high ranking sites enjoying 100,000 unique visits with only 0.01 percent conversion rate.
These tools use a bunch of browsers to load websites and replicate end-user website experience across disparate geographic locations. Performance bottlenecks are monitored across various elements of the web page under scrutiny including file size, load time, response time and requests pertaining to various website parts (JavaScript, CSS files, HTML, images, etc.).

BIG PROBLEM: being pregnant in America is overwhelming and confusing. The mainstream culture is one in which women are often not listened to, respected, or heard in regards to their wishes about pregnancy care and birth experiences. Pregnant women want to be the decision-makers in their birth experience, but often get derailed by providers, friends, and family.
Solution: My book Homestead Cooking with Carol: Bountiful Make-ahead Meals shows the busy homesteading homemaker how to prepare her food at harvest time so that she spends less time making supper the rest of the year. It shows her how to prepare simple, healthy foods that do not require a culinary degree for those nights when she lacks the energy to chop, braise, caramelize, or glaze.
1 in 4 visitors would abandon the website if it takes more than 4 seconds to load. 46 percent of users don’t revisit poorly performing websites. Website owners have a mere 5 seconds to engage visitors before they consider leaving. 74 percent of users accessing the mobile site would leave if it takes longer than 5 seconds to load. Every one-second delay in page load time could lead to $1.6 billion in annual losses for online merchants as big as Amazon.
It is estimated that consumers are 75% of the way to making their decision to buy from your brand before they ever begin to check out. Thus, it is critical to address all issues and FAQs on your website to make it easy for customers to move from consideration to conversion. Product “how to” guides, showcases, and solutions to common “pain points,” can be used to provide your leads with the information they need to know that will make or break their purchase decision.
Because the prospect’s awareness and expectations change. Each stage of a buying cycle has a specific set of questions your prospects will usually ask as they ascend through the stages. Providing them with answers to these questions in the right moment will actually remove friction in their decision making process and, consequently, increase your conversion rate.

We can’t stress this enough—the biggest challenge for a sales rep is to be able to identify qualified sales leads. Experienced sales reps probably know how to qualify their leads over time, and therefore effectively work on the right opportunities. But for the rest of them, this is still a burning issue. The struggle to pick out qualified leads in the funnel forces sales reps to chase them all. The result—getting nowhere.
Wrangle Your Javascript and Stylesheets – Have your scripts and CSS load in external files instead of cramping up each and every web pages. This way, the browser only has to load the files one time, rather than every time someone visits each page of your site. Ideally, put your external CSS in theportion of your site, and your external Javascript file as close to the tag as possible. This way, the browser isn’t bogged down wading through all those requests for external files right from the start. The only time you won’t want to do this is if the Javascript needs to load near the top of the page – such as to display a name or load up an image carousel.

The technology has come a long way in improving internet experience. The over-crowded cyberworld of the 1990s was often labeled as the World Wide Wait, but innovations in communication and networking technologies have revolutionized the way digital information is transmitted across the internet. The next generation of online businesses have all the resources they need to deliver content instantaneously, but to leverage and complement these resources, businesses need speed-optimized websites that deliver the best user experience.
Time has become a top 3 obstacle to success for sales professionals and anyone trying to grow their business results. This book helped my identify and accept that I am being held back because of my attitude and choices about my time. By the time I got to the Chapter 31 titled "Unclog Your Pipeline" I had so many notes that I had to put the book down and go back to start from the beginning and highlight the areas that were giving me the clarity that I was so clearly lacking.
The book was widely reviewed in specialist journals, including the Journal of Economic Literature,[12] American Journal of Education,[25] The American Journal of Psychology,[26] Planning Theory,[27] The American Economist,[28] The Journal of Risk and Insurance,[29] The Michigan Law Review,[30] American Scientist,[31] Contemporary Sociology,[32] Science,[33] Contexts,[34] The Wilson Quarterly,[35] Technical Communication,[36] The University of Toronto Law Journal,[37] A Review of General Semantics[38] and Scientific American Mind.[39]

The specifics of each stage of qualification aren’t particularly important. What is important is that you assign them in the first place! Not only will this help you to identify the content pieces that are leading to the most new prospects (as well as any additional pieces that should be created), it will ensure that you’re using your salespeople’s time effectively.
Solution: The 100 Locals guidebooks (now available for Italy, Barcelona, Paris, and Prague) are a collection of interviews with real people who live and work in those places. They’re long-time locals, passionate expats, chefs, trekking experts, historians, and culture buffs. And they’ll tell you how to find that hidden-away pizzeria with the best pizza in Rome, or the palace that inspired Versailles (which most Paris visitors never visit), or that unique tour company in Prague whose tour guides are (wait for it) homeless people.

The absolute critical principle in maximizing website performance is to focus on page speed optimization from the ground up. Performance optimization plugins, server-side scripts, and final tweaks have minimal – however noticeable – impact on page speed and load times. Yet, Web developers and online business owners tend to overlook page load times in their website development and design strategies.
”We need a vehicle to actually figure it out. You can’t just know it without trying stuff,” Besbris argues. Google had to prove that the web could be as good as Instant Articles. More importantly, it had to get as good quickly — before people abandoned it for a million different custom apps and article formats. Besbris says Google couldn’t wait for the committees that help craft web standards to get it done. “If you start by trying everything through the standards process, we would still be talking about it,” he argues.
Let’s look at some recent research: according to Google the average time it takes for a mobile landing page to load is now 22 seconds. Compare that with the three seconds visitors need to decide if they want to stay for your page to load and you will see a huge discrepancy. People are impatient. They want something, and they want it now. While page speed is important for your SEO, it is even more important for your UX, conversion and general customer happiness.
If you’re unfamiliar, AMP is Google’s attempt to make webpages as fast and portable as other “instant articles” (like what you might read on Facebook or Apple News). The idea is that when you click a link on those other platforms, you don’t have to wait for the article to load because it’s already preloaded in an app. AMP’s goal is to bring the same performance to the web itself.
