Digital Tools for Every Stage of the Funnel

When you have just a moment to capture someone’s eye, interactive digital content is a terrific hook. Studies show that interactive content is reusable, helps nurture leads – and aids in retention of your message. Consider great digital tools like the examples below to help customers “live” your brand at every stage of the sales funnel.


AWARENESS

When you’re looking to build awareness, even the simplest digital tool can add zing – and make your brand memorable. Quizzes are a popular way to create awareness early on. With a little more work, attention-grabbing photo or social collages are a stellar way to allow people to explore your product or service.

#NotAfraidtoWork

 

User generated content highlights photos and stories about hardworking people and tools for a unique digital and social experience.


ENGAGEMENT 

Configurators, selection engines and other tools allow prospects to explore available product options. They also strengthen your value proposition. We also like using assessments and calculators at this stage of the game – entering information and learning about tangible benefits has high engagement value.

Cree Product Selector

 LEAD GENERATION
