The Customer Journey Funnel


The customer journey funnel begins with Awareness. This is the stage where customers realize that they have a need (problem). Sometimes the Awareness arises naturally, but often it comes from targeted advertising. Paid (targeted ads), using a PPC (pay per click) to expand brand reach. Organic strategy is when the brand produces content explaining how their product or service solves a particular problem.

Example: Consider a beauty salon advertising a solution for women overwhelmed with too many skincare products and daily home routines. The salon offers an hour-long session that saves both money and time.

Suggested Metrics: Followers, likes, comments, shares, and website visitors.

The Interest stage is when your customer actively searches for a solution. They seek educational content, help, free trials, how-to videos, and influencer product reviews. Lists, articles, and product reviews are great tools to feed customer interest.

Example: Highlight the benefits of salon treatments over a complex at-home skincare routine. This could involve blog posts about specific ingredients, reviews of new technologies, or videos demonstrating a simpler morning routine.

Suggested Metrics: Time on site, downloads, sign-ups, leads, bounce rate, page views, and return customers/users.

During the Consideration phase, your customer has a clearer picture of what they want. They may still struggle with making a final decision due to various factors such as price, packaging, or offer specifics. Here, the customer values the overall experience rather than focusing only on product features. 

Customers might contact customer service, check additional information, or make reservations/tests. Case studies, product comparisons, and pricing explanations can be beneficial at this stage.

Example: Customers of the beauty salon may contact DM to ask for a price list, for more information, or to react in comments for beauty salon posts. 


The Purchase stage also requires supporting content. Guidance on buying, ordering, and using the product or service can be instrumental in securing the customer’s decision.

Example: Ordering the procedure after seeing an influencer in the same salon. 

Suggested Metrics: Revenue, orders, average order value, and cart abandonment rates to identify potential problem areas.

Keeping the Connection

The Post-Purchase and Re-Purchase stages are often neglected but are essential for customer retention. Maintaining post-purchase communication through email marketing, additional purchase options, personal phone calls, and customer satisfaction surveys can encourage customers to return, increasing their lifetime value at a minimal cost.

Suggested Metrics: Return customers, lifetime value of the customer, positive reviews, and user-generated content.
