Keyword Strategy Funnel for Refined Targeting and Optimal Cost Performance
At the top of your sales funnel we target generic keywords to introduce your service(s) and products to an interested but broad audience. In many cases this is a generic product, service or destination question, EG: Rental Cars. Often initial searches are very generic and by targeting these terms you generate a great deal of awareness about your offering, however conversions are low as more research is needed.
More specific keyword phrases give us a better understanding of the searcher’s intent so we are able connect that visitor with the exact answer, service or product they were seeking. We call these “Mid Funnel” Keywords.
EG: Luxury Rental Cars In San Diego, tells us the class of service, the type of service and location the prospect desires to have answered.
Long detailed keyword phrases indicate the visitor knows exactly what they want and if they are presented with a perfect match to their query they are highly likely to convert. These keyword searches are called “bottom funnel” terms and are generally lower in traffic volume but convert into a sale at a far higher rate. EG: Luxury Rental Car Agencies San Diego That Accept AMEX.
As you can see from the simple example above, each keyword search connects to the specific stage the prospect is going through which calls for a very different ad, landing page, content and offer in order to convert them. By developing focused keyword sets based upon your visitor’s exact intent and matching them to your ads and landing pages to deliver the exact answer they are seeking increases the effectiveness of all marketing campaigns.
