Ans: By the term ‘performance’ we mean the behavior of the target audience in this case. Accordingly, the sales funnel is built. The funnel structure is in an inverse pyramid format, which narrows down towards the end. The first funnel is to create ‘awareness’ amongst people. At this stage, we do not know any specific target audience we should attract. Hence we target the mass via social media. The second stage is the ‘interest’ stage. It is at this stage that we showcase great contents to educate the interest group so that they can make an informed decision. The third stage is the ‘decision’ making stage. Now the customer is ready, hence this is the time when you should show the best offers. Your content can compel the prospect to make a decision. Last is the ‘action’. The prospect is now ready and makes the purchase.
However, the role of performance marketers does not end here. Now their goal is to focus on customer retention.
