What are Funnels?

A funnel (or a conversion funnel) is a set of actions your user should take when visiting your website. Each funnel ends with a goal specific to the industry you’re in. For example, if you run an eCommerce store, your funnel should end with a purchase. For SaaS, it would be subscribing to one of your plans. As an independent consultant, you probably want your potential customers to schedule a meeting or at least leave their phone number and email address.

Goals may also be specific to the objective you’d like to achieve. For example, if you are after getting positive reviews, you would probably start with (1) Showing an NPS, (2) Ask promoters to leave feedback, and (3) Gather their feedback through filling a form (which will, by the way, be your goal in this three-step funnel).

How to build a funnel

Building a funnel always starts with the end. Think of all the measurable effects of your visitor’s journey through your website. Write them down. Analyze data from other sources and consider what conditions must be met so your customer reaches the goal. Going down the funnel may require visiting a particular set of pages (for eCommerce: Homepage > Category Page > Product page > Checkout page > Order confirmation page) or meeting specific requirements. If you’re into the SaaS business and want to track switching to higher plans, your funnel may look like this: Visit Billing page > Click on the “Upgrade Plan” button > Mark a checkbox accepting new terms > Making a payment.
