Are you tired of losing customers? While not all prospects will become your customers, you can always increase your conversion rate by optimizing your customer journey. Studies show that only 10% of users add products to their cart and 60% to 80% of them abandon their cart without finishing their purchase. If you want to increase your conversion rate, you should build a sales funnel for your products and gradually optimize that funnel.
In this article, you will learn everything about WooCommerce sales funnels and how to create one using Jupiter X.
What are sales funnels?
A sales funnel is the visual representation of a prospect’s journey toward purchasing a product and becoming your customer. As the name implies, it works like a funnel. A large number of people begin at the top of the funnel and a select few end up becoming customers. Understanding the sales funnel will help you understand prospect behavior and challenges and why some prospects never convert. With this information you can optimize the customer journey and increase sales.
The sales journey is about more than simply asking customers to buy your products. A sales funnel allows you plenty of room to build trust and prepare customers to make a purchase, ultimately giving you the chance to sell more. In addition to cultivating a loyal customer base, sales funnels will help you increase average order value with strategically placed upsells and order bumps. With advanced and personalized sales funnel builders, you can encourage your visitors to take each step on the journey to buying your product.
What is an order bump?
An order bump is a cross-sell offer shown on the checkout page that helps increase the customers’ order value. With an order bump, you offer a new product to the buyer that can be bought impulsively because it complements the original product. An order bump can increase AOV by 10-30%.
What is upsell?
An upsell is a way to promote another product or service after the initial purchase has been made. A user will complete the checkout flow and then will see a new page that offers new products to buy. The probability of selling to existing customers is 60-70%, while the probability of selling to a new prospect is 5-20%.
Marketers add upsell and downsell to sales funnels to up order values and maximize profit. Upsell involves offering an upgraded version of a product or service a customer has shown interest in, naturally at a higher price., whereas downsell involves offering a low-cost alternative to the product or service the customer is considering purchasing.

Steps in a sales funnel
There are different steps available within your funnels you can consider:
- Sales page: A sales page is a landing page designed to promote or sell a specific product. Business owners can use this page to convince visitors to buy their goods.
- Checkout: A checkout page collects customer payment details, including shipping and billing information, and lets them complete their order.
- Upsell: An upsell page allows you to suggest one-time offers to your customers. You can use this page to sell items in addition to the main product. For example, if you’re selling an iPhone 13 Pro, you may offer a charger or additional cable as an upsell.
- Downsell: Downsell is when you offer a more affordable alternative to the desired product or service.
- Thank you page: A thank you page appears right after a customer makes a successful purchase. This page is supposed to be the last step in every sales funnel.
- Decision: The decision step separates the prospects within the funnel into more than one path based on different conditions.
- Opt-in: An opt-in page, also called a lead capture or squeeze page, helps you collect emails from your prospects. You can nurture these leads through well-planned email campaigns and convert them into customers.

In a simple example, you can add the [SellKit-customer-first-name] dynamic keyword to this sentence: Don’t miss our big sale, [SellKit-customer-first-name]! Now a visitor named Ryan will see “Don’t miss our big sale, Ryan!”
Sales funnel best practices
1. Use segmentation in sales funnels with Jupiter X
With segmentation, you can personalize order bumps, upsells and coupons for your customer according to their behavior, location, referral websites, purchases and more. This segmentation can help creating upsells for your product and significantly increase sales.
There are seven types of segmentation: RFM segmentation, cart details, order details, geolocational details, referral details, personal details and in-site behavior. Each segment is used for different groups with different properties, but all of them aim to increase sales.
RFM is a criterion that includes the recency, frequency and monetary value of customer purchases. To rank and score customer segments, RFM values are calculated based on these metrics:
- Recency: How recent the customer’s last purchase was
- Frequency: How often customers make a purchase
- Monetary: The total monetary value a customer has spent on purchases.
RFM segmentation is a condition that you can use within your funnels, discounts, coupons and smart notices. SellKit uses RFM scores to automatically provide the following segments:
Bought recently, ordered often and spent the most. These customers are responsible for a big share of your revenue. Put a lot of effort into keeping them happy.
They order regularly and are responsive to promotions. These are very active and therefore valuable customers.
These customers have already bought from you more than once, but their purchase was not too big.
These customers have bought from you relatively recently for an average or below-average price and have not been frequent customers. This is possibly their first purchase from your website.
These customers spent frequently and a good amount, but their last purchase was a long time ago.
Customers needing attention
Customer spending above-average amounts whose last purchase happened a relatively long time ago.
About to sleep
Below average recency, frequency and monetary values. The customer will be lost if not reactivated.
Cannot lose them
The customer value of the members of this segment is above average but they have not made a purchase recently.
They spent a lot of money and purchased often a long time ago. You need to bring them back!
Their last purchase was a long time ago. They were low spenders and placed a low number of orders. Do not overspend on advertising for this group, as the return on your investment is not likely to be positive.
Made their last purchase a long time ago and have not engaged recently at all. Do not waste resources on them as they are unlikely to come back
