First of all, what is a bridge funnel and why do you need one for your business. A bridge funnel is a pre-frame page where you explain what your visitors will be expecting to present in the next page before you send them to the sales page. For example, we always start with a squeeze page to collect their contact details for future follow up. And on the second page, after they submit their details, you don’t directly send them to your sales letter page.
This will be too obvious that you’re just trying to push them to make a purchase. But instead, between the lead page and sales page, you have a bridge page where you start providing value and tell them what to expect on the next page and why should they click on the button and flow down the funnel.

A squeeze page is to convince them to give you their contact details, bridge page to pre-frame for your next upcoming offer so they are aware of what they will be seeing next.
