Taking Advantage of the Messy Middle to Grow Online Sales
August 13, 2020
The customer buying journey is exactly that, a journey. From the research you find on a search engine, to social media influencers and website reviews, the process of buying from the initial inspiration to the purchase can be messy.
The messy middle gets its name from the action between the trigger to look into a product and the purchase of that product. In an online environment, buyers face an abundance of choices and endless information. Learning how to make sense of the thought process buyers go through with all of this information during the messy middle is vital to understand your potential customers and gain those online sales.
What exactly happens in the messy middle?
In the messy middle, people look for information on products they are interested in and then weigh their options with the information they find. Exploration and evaluation are the two main pillars in the messy middle that buyers go through to make their purchasing decisions. Buyers repeat this cycle as often as they need to and eventually make their decision from cognitive biases.
