3 stages of the funnel

3 stages of the funnel

Marketing experts define 3 main stages of the funnel:

  1. TOFU (top of the funnel) attracts attention
  2. MOFU (middle of the funnel) generates leads
  3. BOFU (bottom of the funnel) drives payments.

At each stage the user intent is different, which means that your content will pursue different goals and the results will be measured in different values.

The BOFU stage is the end of the funnel, where content can help position your brand as superior to competitors, build trust and accelerate the purchase. The content you create should answer very specific questions about your product or service (e.g. how it actually works or what skills are required to deal with it).
