STAGES OF ONLINE CUSTOMER LIFE

The initial search is an interest based search. Your customer is looking for an easy answer to a problem that they are facing. How are you soling this problem for them? SEO marketing helps here.
Now it is time to reach out and capture your audience. At this stage you can employ advertising tactics to your marketing.
PRESENT YOUR PRODUCTS/SERVICES
Let your creative style shine. Graphics and images are key at this stage. How can you showoff what you have to offer? Photographers and Videographers are often employed to help at this stage.
We are back to SEO now guys. This time we need to brainstorm how we can educate the customer. Everybody wants to learn something new. What useful information can you give to your customer base. EBooks, Statistics, Infographics and case studies can be used at this stage of the journey.
BUY A PRODUCT/SERVICE
At this stage you are encouraging the customer to make a purchase. Your calls to action are essential at this point. What colour buttons are you using to entice actions? What words do you use to persuade the reader?
Now it is time to ask for feedback. Good or bad you want to be speaking with your customers. Anyone who has take the time to invest in your products or services deserves your attention.
