Mapping your customer’s journey through the buying cycle is key to understanding their trajectory through the buying cycle. From the way clients find out about your company’s products and services, to how they consider their options, to how they decide to buy, you can’t really optimise your marketing unless you understand the nuances, milestones, and data required at each stage of their journey.
Getting an accurate picture of how your company interacts with leads is increasingly more difficult given the digital marketing landscape. Your customers are exposed to thousands of messages each day, across an ever-increasing range of channels. Some of the messages are crafted for their stage of preparedness to buy, but many are not. And no two leads or customers behave exactly the same: it can take two customers with exactly the same profile and level of interaction with your business a widely-varying amount of time (and touchpoints) to decide tom ake a purchase.
This is precisely why customer journey mapping is so important! The more clear your picture of how your customers interact with a page, the more likely you are to be able to optimise and improve that journey so that your leads turn into clients – and in less time.
