Awareness-based terms

These types of prospects are in the initial stages of buying. They do not know anything about your business or your industry. It’s just that they have recently figured out an issue in their internal framework. 

Buyers in this stage are not necessarily going to buy immediately. So, you must be cautious while pitching your sales strategy in front of them. Else, you have the option to nurture these leads and pitch the idea when they have ultimately reached the decision-making stage. 

Solution-based terms

Prospects are fully aware of their problems. They are actively looking to resolve their problem and thus want a solution as soon as possible. But here is a catch. They do not know which tool is the best for them or which is the most cost-effective technique for them. 

These potential buyers must be treated with automated solutions in order to nurture them. This will definitely sway the major decision-makers of the prospective organizations. 

Branded-based terms

These types of customers are fully aware of your brand and the solution you offer. These are those types of customers who are very close to sealing the deal. Thus, it is important for your sales team to not lose the deal with these high intent buyers. 

Knowing your customers’ search terms will do wonders for your business. It will help you in sorting out the right type of audience. Further, it also opens new gates where you can connect with unknown leads and convert them into known contacts.
