This Week’s Guest:
We’re all familiar with the concept of a sales funnel, but it has one big problem: the bottom is much smaller than the top. In other words, when translated to marketing and customer retention, you need to draw in a lot of people to make relatively few sales. The key to fixing this problem isn’t attracting more people to your funnel. You need to make the bottom opening of your funnel bigger by creating lifelong, enthusiastic customers.
