The Essence of the Course

People are not falling into the sales funnel; they are falling out. Gravity is not working for the marketer; it is working against them. The traditional analogy is flawed. Thomas Kuhn said,” … the scientist who embraces a new paradigm is like the man wearing inverting lenses.”

Marketers need a new, more accurate paradigm. They need to see with Kuhn’s “inverting lenses.” More to the point, we need to see the funnel in a new way – the funnel must be inverted. With this new perspective, we can better fathom the nature of our work.

The marketer must defy the law of gravity. We must overcome the organic resistance in the marketplace. More people are falling out than are flowing in (and thus up). And those moving up (toward the narrow end) do so in steps, in micro-decisions. Moreover, they do not move up the center; they move up the sides, with each side representing a sale path.

The funnel is the message; it is constructed from micro-offers. Progress is dependent on a micro-yes at each of these many junctures. It takes a long unbroken sequence of micro-yes(s) to achieve a macro-yes (the sale), but it takes just a single “no” to undo every single “yes.”
