It's the second stage of the sales funnel after they learn about your business, they become interested in what you are offering, and how your product or services will be helpful for them.
According to the information they have put together through their interest, they will decide on how good the prices are to invest, different options for membership, courses, or webinars to help them grow their own business, yoga, or nutrition class for a better healthy life.
