Advanced Funnel Strategies for Improved Conversions

How many users who added an item to their cart completed their purchase? How many users who started the sign-up process finished it? Where in the process did they drop off?
Marketers use Funnels to uncover friction points and increase customer conversions. Funnels let you analyze how many users are completing each step in the conversion process, and discover where they’re dropping off.
Funnels are a powerful tool for marketers to track and optimize conversions. Now, with Actionable Funnels, you can create and engage a specific user segment right from Funnels.
For example, create a campaign for users who installed the app, registered, and completed a profile but didn’t relaunch the app. Or create and track a segment of users who used a referral code to sign up.

Actionable Funnels for Instant Segmentation

Funnels allow you to see which actions immediately precede a conversion event, so that you can persuade more users to perform that action. With Actionable Funnels, you can quickly and easily click on the segment of users who did not complete that key action to prompt them to act and boost overall conversions. You can also easily identify cross- and up-sell opportunities.
And you can do more:

  • Create micro-segments based on any step in your funnel so you don’t have to guess your segment definition each time.
  • Run campaigns directly from your funnel view for highly specific, personalized engagement that reflects your user’s journey.
  • Nudge users to take the next action in the conversion funnel and beyond.

Let’s look at how you can use actionable funnels to target and convert more users.
