Many advertisers don't take advantage of product related keywords. When we say "product related" we are referring to search terms that include the product name or the company name of the product that is being searched. My previous examples (the Rolex watch) was an example of a situation where you can benefit from product terms.

However, there are MILLIONS of products and services. This same principle can be applied to all of them.

For example, if someone was searching the term "wealthy affiliate review" (above, I searched using Jaaxy), this would be a product-related keyword for Wealthy Affiliate, as would "wealthy affiliate", "wealthy affiliate program", etc.

People who search product-related keywords are typically very far along in the purchasing lifecycle because they are already knowledgeable in the subject area and they have already been exposed to some form of branding or advertisement.

Someone who is searching the term "wealthy affiliate review" has probably already done a significant amount of research and are into the Decision phase. They may have started by searching the term "affiliate marketing" and found a website promoting Wealthy Affiliate. They then did some additional research and analysis on Internet marketing related schools to decide which program would be best suited for them. Finally, they search the program they are interested in joining, Wealthy Affiliate.

Here is another example, a product that is always trending with each new iteration, the iPhone (iPhone 4 in this case)

As you can see, large numbers of people are searching for iPhone 4's, and lots of them a searching for reviews. These keywords have very little competition and can be leveraged to attain targeted traffic that is far along in the customer purchasing lifecycle. If you can deliver the product information they are looking for (the program is excellent; the program is good, however check out this better alternative), then you will likely be able to convert this product centric audience at a very high rate.

Great information. I learned about this customer or audience concept in college and after using it in my IT Career, the feedback I got was amazing. I also found it helpful as a Mom of 3 children, who are now grown. Understanding the audience is critical to meeting them where they are and not wasting their time and this is true regardless of what industry you are in or what you are trying to sell them.

These 7 pages - wow. All laid out start to finish with minimal wordage. Very clear - thanks!

One of my main purchasing procedures, probably belongs in this last, long-term customer category: I have something I liked, it broke after years of faithful service, and now I need to replace it.

Makes me think.

Thanks again

Awesome, glad this offered clarity. When I create content, I try to avoid bloat or fluff (stuff that doesn't need to be there). :)

Very informative, this training gave me a much better understanding of the process.

I have a question though, for new brand websites, is that ok to use keywords that are for the second (Decision) and third (Purchase) phase ?

Or firstly, there should be written some posts targeting people in the first page (Research) in order to offer information and gain trust (does it have to take a couple of months?), and only after that, write posts targeting people that are in the second and third phase ?

You want to include posts that target all stages. If you only included the early stages, they may like what you have said and decide to buy it, but they will buy it elsewhere.

The other factor to consider is most of our website visitors will only be on your website once. So that is why you need to target them all.
They may read your (research post), and follow your link through to your review (purchase stage) and buy it then and there.

A good mixture of posts is best. hope that makes sense?

Just to see if I am on the right tract.
This was my actual purchase a few days ago.

I saw something I liked and wanted a pair so I ask the person where they got them from. With that information of the website I went there and figure , hey I could get this cheaper on eBay.

So I went there and searched
first prices
then colors
then colors and sizes
and shipping

This is what I do every time right before I purchase scroll down to the reviews on product and the seller.

Once I was satisfied with a seller I purchased.

I think I got it! The customer purchase life cycle!

I wrote it down because I tend to forget sometimes.

I remember once I was selling led light bulbs, solar panels and similar products. Other employees asked me how do you make so many sales? I have always liked to help others so I explained that When I started at the company I asked myself, What would be the best way to approach people to win there attention and convince them to buy. Suddenly I saw that a person that I wanted to offer my product had an electric bill on top of the table. I decided to tell him I see that you received your electric bill? I can only think how high it must be. This gave me the best approach to make the sale. Sometimes selecting the proper words can help you more than you think.
