Customer journey maps

Digital and non-digital interactions your customers will ideally have with your brand

Why do we do customer journey maps?

Customer journey maps allow us to:

  • Visualise the optimal paths users will travel through when interacting with your brand, both within and across channels
  • Place the most relevant content in the right places and ensure users receive key messages when they're most receptive to them
  • Understand where persuasion opportunities exist and how to exploit them

What does a typical customer journey map involve?

  1. We start by performing in-depth customer research to fully understand user needs, goals and behaviour

  2. We'll then create initial customer journey maps, laying out a blank journey on a (large) piece of paper and adding post-its to represent key stages of the journey

  3. This way we build a picture of the complete journey, highlighting how digital can support different stages of the customer journey and what role it could play

  4. Once the journey has been mapped, we analyse it to highlight gaps, pain points and opportunities from the perspective of both your business and customers

When creating customer journey maps, we consider:

  • Context?- Where is the user? What is it you want them to do at each stage?
  • Emotion?-?What is their emotional state in each step?
  • Progression?-?How does each step enable them to get to the next one?
  • Device -?Which devices are they using and when? How can a device facilitate their journey?
  • Functionality?-?What type of functionality are they expecting??

Customer journey maps are an excellent way of visualising the end-to-end customer journey and your opportunities to engage with them.

When is the best time to do it?

We typically create customer journey maps after carrying out user research. Armed with detailed customer journey maps we'll have a solid foundation on which to start creating design concepts.

Customer journey maps?are most effective when combined with analytics analysis to further highlight actual customer behaviour.
