How to use Designing Buildings Wiki to move prospects into your marketing funnel
 The marketing funnel
There are many variations of funnel, but essentially they are built around the stages of the customer decision process that were identified by Elias St. Elmo Lewis in his AIDA purchase funnel model in 1898.
Marketing activities are then developed with aim of drawing in prospects at the top of the funnel and nurturing as many as possible through the stages of the funnel, hopefully to purchase.
 Designing Buildings Wiki viewers are looking for answers
Publishing informative articles on Designing Buildings Wiki can help draw prospects into the top of the funnel by getting your brand, as the author, in front of viewers looking for information about the subject. Raising awareness of the brand and positioning it as an authority in that area.
Around 80% of viewers arrive on the site via a google search, so they are looking for answers to their problems. Designing Buildings Wiki’s high domain authority means a relevant article on the site is often returned high in organic search results.
These two articles receive 90,000 and 60,000 views a year respectively from organic search results.
The author also has the opportunity to place external links in the article giving them the opportunity to draw the viewer through to their own content and potentially the next stage of the funnel by perhaps downloading an ebook.
