Social Media Advertising, Targeting 7

A purchase funnel is the path that the average buyer of a product or service goes through from attracting his attention to an offer to the moment he buys or orders a service. 

A sales funnel can be formed from a different number of points, and the main thing in each of them is not to lose a client and lead him to the next stage or transfer to another funnel.

  2. The user started looking for information on this need

How does ad targeting sales funnel work?

To implement a sales funnel and set up advertising according to the funnel, special codes are introduced to the site to track the user at each stage of the funnel, then users at different stages are shown their own ads.

Here's an example of how a sales funnel works:

  1. The person looked at the product, but did not add it to the cart - we show an advertisement that motivates to buy. This is one level of the question.
  2. Another level - the user put it in the cart, but did not buy - that means we show an advertisement encouraging the completion of the purchase, perhaps we give a bonus or a discount.

Thus, we bring to the purchase the maximum number of people who have shown interest in a product or service!
