Show Notes

We look at what a marketing funnel is, and how they can help grow your business. Then we analyze how to build funnels in WordPress, methodologies for building funnels, and moving people down the funnel to close a sale.

At the top of the funnel is awareness, further down the funnel is interest, evaluation, and finally commitment, and closing the sale.
