What is a sales funnel?
www.assetmethod.com/what-is-a-… You asked: “What is a Sales Funnel?”People – experts – try to make this complex so they sound expert.But it's not.All a sales funnel does does, is do the the selling for you.That means you do less work. And, if like most people selling doesn't come easily, it means less pain too.Now, you're a business owner, so you get plenty of work and pain. If you want more, I suggest that you cold call 1000 people, to get 1 customer. But if you want to speak to a handful of people, all of whom want what you're selling, build a sales funnel instead. Four elements of a sales funnelFor the marketing funnel stages, I use the following sales funnel terminology: traffic, opt in, warm up, sales.Sales Funnel StagesThe funnel sales approach is just a way to get people to buy your stuff – to convert traffic to sales.It's not more complicated than that – and there are only four moving parts:Traffic: find peopleOpt in: give them a bribe to get for their contact detailsWarm up: talk with them until…Sales: they buy from you(Feel free to repeat step 4 – often)That's for taking cold traffic – people who have never heard of you – to the point where you're selling them something expensive.Sometimes a sales funnel is even simpler! If your product is low-priced then maybe you just need the two steps “traffic” and “sales.”  The same, if you are repeat selling to your customers.Assets For Your BusinessWhat you create for each stage is an asset, that once created works hard – in your place.Traffic: You don't create it, you find out where your dream customers hang out and direct them to your opt in.Opt in: least work is a web page, a phone response can be more personal, a visit even more so, but more work too. Trouble is with the personal touch at this stage is that the prospect hasn't qualified themselves.Warm up: using emails is the same – no work once they're created.Sales: a web-based sales page will do the work for you – up to around $1000. More than that, you'll need to speak with your prospect. Even then, the idea of the funnel is that you only get to spend your time speaking to qualified prospects – people who want what you have.A funnel means selling takes less of your time – and time is the only resources you have that's truly limited.So if you'd rather spend your time with family and friends, doing what you like, build a funnel.Spend time with family and friends or cold call peopleWhen you have a sales funnel it means selling takes less of your time – and time is the only resources you have that's truly limited.So if you'd rather spend your time with family and friends, doing what you like, build a funnel.What's more you'll be selling to people who're already mostly sold – so it'll feel less painfull too.I hope I've answered your question “what is a sales funnel?” Think you might want a marketing sales funnel system?Most people take the 14 day free trial of the sales funnel software I use – get it through here and there are more goodies too!And they also want to get my eBook “Three ways to get more revenue without spending more on ads and SEO” www.assetmethod.com/what-is-a-…
