What Is A Brand Funnel?

A brand funnel is a customer journey model from the perspective of the customer. It measures the awareness of the market and each step the market takes towards brand loyalty, then advocacy.

It allows brand managers to see where the brand is performing well and which transition steps need most attention to prevent as many customers as possible veering off the road to advocacy.

The Brand Funnel Template (Stage Examples)

As with any funnel model or customer journey mapping model, there are different stages to the brand funnel model.

The first step is to understand how your customers move along the journey and the stages they go through along the way.
