Reverse Funnel Process

The Maybank Reverse Funnel Process takes a company through a step-by-step approach designed to reverse-engineer their revenue goals and calculate the level of marketing investment and mix of marketing activities needed to generate the desired revenue outcome.

Maybank Reverse Funnel Process

Why should businesses reverse-engineer their target revenue?

For businesses looking to optimize their marketing and sales process and improve revenue growth, there is the obvious question of how much activity is required in the funnel to achieve a sales result?

Most companies don’t have a clear path between their revenue target and what it will take to reach, and hopefully exceed, that target.

Not only does the Maybank Reverse Funnel Process determine the most efficient way to achieve a revenue target and growth rate across the entire organization, but it will also dramatically increase alignment and commitment to the overall revenue target.

I would encourage other companies to explore the Maybank Reverse Funnel Process. We used it for our 2021 Annual Planning process and it was instrumental in helping us align our sales and marketing goals.
