Key Stages of Customer Acquisition Funnel

There are multiple versions of customer acquisition and they can be adapted based on your needs and requirements but it has several key stages that should always be considered. The first stage is awareness, where customers get interested in your company.

During the consideration stage customers are researching you with the intent to buy. The conversion stage is about customers purchasing your product. The retention stage is about customers developing loyal relationships with your company.

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Ad Campaigns

PPC can help you to reach a wider audience more quickly. There are two primary types of PPC that you could use, they are display ads and search ads. Display ads are visible in different forms for people who are online. They are very useful when customers aren’t sure about a purchase, this way you can reach them again and remind them of the benefits that they can get from your company.

Search ads are shown to users via search engine results on pages when they are searching for specific keywords that might be connected to you. It’s great for generating demand and can help you find leads who are very interested in the kind of products and services that you have.
