How to Find Channels to Funnel From

  1. Think about your average customer (or perhaps a low hanging fruit that's not currently shopping with you but has the potential to).
  2. Consider where and how they spend their time.
  3. Let's pretend "doing yoga" is one option for this example.
  4. If you are hoping to attract people to your place-based business, head to the Google search engine and enter "yoga near me" (assuming you're near/at your business when doing this).
  5. Identify the businesses that are most prominent in the search results (top of page).
  6. Consider contacting them to suggest a cross promotion of sorts i.e. "Hi! I think your customers would be interested in these Veggie Checklists. Would you be willing to include a mention of them in your next email communications (or on your website or your blog...)?"
  7. If you're not solely place-based (offer delivery/shipping) then remove the "near me" and use broader, but still relevant search terms i.e. "how to master pigeon pose".
  8. Repeat for various "themes", not just yoga. Find as many channels as possible. This is where you'll place the "top of your funnel" and direct people to your business, ideally a landing page, where you will then capture the lead's contact information and nurture them into making a purchase, and eventually becoming a regular customer.
