How to create an integrated Customer Journey | TCXA
We all know that a good customer experience is critical for any business but how do you measure it? How do you know if your customers are getting what they need and want when interacting with your brand? The answer is by creating an integrated customer journey.
How to create an integrated Customer Journey
Customer journey mapping is one of the most important aspects of a great CX strategy. It’s easy to get lost in the details and lose sight of what your customer needs from you, but it can be very helpful in putting together a clear picture of how your customers interact with each other over time and across channels.
The Customer Experience Agency has spent years understanding how to create an integrated Customer Journey map that not only details where they are now, but also identifies ways they can improve their products and services based on feedback from customers.
The first step is identifying all available touchpoints between customers and businesses—we call this “mapping the entire ecosystem surrounding each interaction with a business or brand (including its products/services). The second step involves creating an analysis plan which outlines what data sources must be collected during the research phase so that we can better understand exactly where opportunities exist within this ecosystem (which may include both existing behaviors as well as potential future ones).
Importance of understanding interactions with your customers
If you want to be successful in the world of customer experience, it’s important that you understand how customers interact with your brand. Customer journey mapping is one tool that can help you better understand those interactions, and can also be used as the first step toward building a CX strategy.
Customer journey mapping is different than traditional market segmentation because it focuses on understanding how each individual customer interacts with your company rather than dividing them up based on demographics and psychographics. You don’t need to have all the answers when starting out; instead, try this exercise by asking yourself these questions - What are my customers’ goals? What channels do they use? Where do they come from? (social media, search engines)
Benefits of mapping your customer experience
Relevant journey is the key to a good CX strategy. You can use your customer journey map as a guide for creating a CX strategy that will be relevant to your customers and help meet their needs. The Customer Experience Agency helps companies improve their customer experience by mapping out their customer journeys, and then developing strategies based on those insights. TCXA’s One Journey is a customer journey mapping tool that provides a visual representation of your customer experience. In addition to identifying gaps in your customer experience, One Journey helps you identify opportunities for improvement.
We know that you may be asking yourself, “How do I get started with mapping my customer experience?” It can seem like a daunting task to take on, but it doesn’t have to be. The first step is to make sure that you understand who your customers are and why they choose your brand over others in their market. Once you know your target audience, it will become easier to create an integrated customer journey map that includes all touchpoints across multiple channels throughout their experience with your company.
