Content Marketing &
Its Place in
Your Sales
Funnel
Ask a regular person to
think of tofu and they'll
imagine something like this:
But ask a salesperson and
they'll probably think of
something like this:
Funnel Image: The Leverage Lifestyle
A salesperson hears tofu
and thinks ToFu
ToFu = Top of Funnel
And of course there's also
MoFu...
MoFu = Middle of Funnel
And there's BoFu, too...
BoFu = Bottom of Funnel
So what's this funnel?
Simple.
It's the sales funnel.
And what's a sales funnel?
The sales funnel visually
describes the sales process
from initial contact to final
sale.
Definition: MaRS DD
The role of the salesperson
is to remove barriers and
help the customer descend
through the sales funnel.
Prospects
Sales
What about the role of the
content marketer?
Believe it or not, content
marketing is essential at
every point
in the sales funnel.
Let's take them one at a
time and explain how and
why content marketing can
help your sales.
ToFu
What is the goal of content
marketing at the ToFu stage
of the sales funnel?
Attraction.
At the ToFu stage you want
to attract as many potential
clients as you can.
And if they are qualified
prospects (people who fit
your buyer profile) that's
even better.
TIP:
Make your content fun,
shareable, interesting,
informative, and useful.
MoFu
What is the goal of content
marketing at the MoFu
stage of the sales funnel?
Education and Positioning.
Content here should
educate the prospect about
the product or service.
It also needs to position the
business as the best placed
to deliver for the buyer.
TIP:
Consider longform content
like eBooks and white
papers to educate and
position effectively.
BoFu
What is the goal of content
marketing at the BoFu
stage of the sales funnel?
Conversion.
Content here has to convert
the prospect into a client.
A fully-paid up client?
Not necessarily.
Clients could be converted
to trial programs that will
eventually lead to full sales.
TIP:
Consider promotional
content, discount codes,
and content giveaways for
trial signups.
In other words, no matter
where you are in the sales
funnel...
...content marketing can
help you win sales.
