The difference between an ecommerce site and a sales funnel.

What is the difference between driving traffic to your ecommerce site and driving traffic to your sales funnel? Which place is the best landing spot for your target audience? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott and Chris as they explain the difference between each landing location and why it matters which one you choose. The main difference between the two options is that a sales funnel is a more narrow and focused experience for your customer. When you drive your customer to your sales funnel, they won’t hear all about your brand and all the other distractions that a full site might feature. Which one should you send your customers to? It depends on where you are at in your brand development. Listen to Scott and Chris explain which option might be best for you by listening to this helpful episode!
