Middle of the funnel (MoFu) is the second stage in the marketing and sales funnel, representing the phase where prospects have moved from initial awareness to actively considering potential solutions to their problems or needs. At this stage, they are evaluating different options, products, or services to determine which one best addresses their specific requirements.
The primary objective of middle of the funnel marketing is to nurture leads, build trust and credibility, and demonstrate the value of your product or service. Marketing efforts at this stage focus on providing more in-depth and targeted content that showcases your company’s expertise and the benefits of your offering.
What are some MoFu marketing strategies?
MoFu strategies include:
- Gated content (e.g., whitepapers, ebooks, webinars)
- Email marketing and lead nurturing campaigns
- Case studies and customer testimonials
- Product demos and free trials
- Retargeting ads
By effectively engaging and nurturing prospects in the middle of the funnel, marketers can build trust, establish credibility, and guide potential customers toward a purchasing decision in the final stage of the funnel, known as the Bottom of the Funnel (BoFu).
