The basics are that we take a prospect through the different decision-making phases by positioning the product or service.
The buyer starts the journey unaware of their need. After exposure to something that cultivates intrigue comes awareness and interest, where your service meets the “why” of the potential customer. This interest leads to education, where connection, credibility, and evaluation are established. The sale happens when a decision is made for adoption of the service your business provides. This sale is followed by retention. A virtuous cycle.
