  • Marketing Lexicon: Full-Funnel Marketing by David Karel (Marketing Daily on 09/12/2013)

    Thanks for your comment Gray. For certain, there are a lot of "twists and turns" when it comes to today's buyer's journey. But I do think that the overall paradigm of the "funnel" is still relevant. As marketers, we're still tasked with reaching as many people as possible in our target audience (top funnel), needing to educate and engage people as the proceed towards a sales conversation (mid funnel), and ultimately interested in driving conversions and new business (bottom funnel). The buying journey is at many times unpredictable, but with a full-funnel marketing approach, we put ourselves in a position to make an impact at every stage.
