How To Create A Leads Funnel On Outgrow
Welcome to the 6th edition of our funnel blog posts. Phew! Thus far, we have talked about creating funnels to segment your users, sell your products effectively, segment users creating multi path funnels and coaching business-specific funnels.
So, what does this edition have in store for you?
Let’s talk about how to create a leads funnel that helps you sort and qualify users for your marketing campaigns. Let’s go.
What is it and Why do You Need it?
Let’s get straight to it. Having hundreds of leads isn’t a good practice if they don’t convert into customers. You want to be able to close your deals, rather than chasing endless dead prospects.
Qualifying allows you to find out whether a lead is actually a prospect, i.e. whether it has the potential to become a customer. As you might have guessed, if you don’t qualify your leads, you are going to waste a lot of valuable time on someone who cannot or does not even want to buy from you!
And this is where a Leads Funnel comes in. It helps in sorting and qualifying your leads in a more efficient and effective way. A Leads Funnel helps you to prioritize your leads by segregating them on the basis of specific questions created by you. It saves time . Most importantly, it provides better focus by ensuring resources are never wasted chasing leads that won’t generate sales. Therefore, a Leads Funnel leads to better conversion rates and higher revenue.
How Does a Qualified Leads Funnel Work
A Leads Funnel is ideally crisp and concise. It contains just two type of questions, which are:
a) Segmentation Question(s):
These play a major role in qualifying your leads. Therefore, make sure that the segmentation question is relevant and hits the mark in terms of how you want to segregate your users.
b) Supplementary Questions:
Use these questions to collect important data from your segmented users. More importantly, having path-specific supplementary questions will make your users feel that you’re truly listening to their needs, making the funnel engaging and interactive.
The funnel starts with an optional Welcome Page and a Segmentation Question, which defines the path the user will follow. If the user doesn’t pass the segmentation question, they are directed to a specific lead capture page with an offer. The users that pass the segmentation question are further nurtured through supplementary questions and finally led through to appropriate offers and lead generation forms.
