A Marketing Funnel for your handmade shop is the process of building a system for your business that nurtures and supports your customers from when they first hear about your product. On average, people need to be exposed to a brand 7 times before they purchase from you.
When your potential customers first sees your creations on social media or finds you on Google, you should be finding techniques to build a relationship with them. The simplest way you can do this is to build a marketing funnel. Over time, with a funnel, you can build trust with your community, educate them about your product or just keep your brand at the top of their mind. Eventually, you’ll start to see that your community turn into buyers as you guide them through your marketing funnel.
