Did you know that companies that use tools like customer journey maps reduce their service cost by 15-20%? While others invest billions of dollars in learning what consumers want and expect, they still don't understand them as well as they think. Instead of focusing their attention on the more critical issue of the end-to-end customer journey, they get distracted by the siloed touchpoints. Knowing your customers' needs and proving that your product can meet those needs is the key to creating happy and loyal customers. This requires a deep understanding and management of the complete customer journey, not just a few siloed touchpoints.

Enhancing the customer experience is a core element of digital transformation and goes beyond just transactions to build deeper customer connections. With customer journey analytics, you can track and analyze customer interactions across multiple channels in real-time. It’s a practical, end-to-end solution to help marketers leverage customer segmentation data across the customer journey. Actioning the gathered data can drive richer customer experiences and a customer-centric mindset.

Fortunately, today's technology can bridge the gap between you and your clients. Through Auryc session replays, you can imagine yourself directly in your customers' shoes. Rather than focusing on traditional web analytics, session replays provide a rich source of qualitative data that complements the quantitative information gathered on your website. With this information, you can easily build action plans and quickly catch business-critical issues to improve your customers’ experiences. This blog will discuss the different stages of a customer journey and three tips for managing customer journeys effectively.

Stages of a customer journey

Managing your customer journey begins with understanding all its stages. You can perfect each stage of any customer journey by understanding what your customer is looking for and how you can provide that. Let us now look at the different stages of a customer journey:

  • Acquisition

    The first stage, or the acquisition stage of a customer journey, is where your customers realize they have a problem and look for a solution. As a business, this is your chance to create a good impression on potential customers and let them know you exist.

    At this stage, prospects also get involved in the other aspects of your product like pricing, customer success stories, etc. By answering all the queries of your prospects and communicating benefits, pricing, and competitive advantages, you can improve your chances of converting an opportunity into a customer. Prospects should be motivated to buy your product at the end of this stage. They should ideally make their first purchase and become your customer.

  • Activation

    At this stage of the customer journey, your prospect is already trying out your product. They also try out different products from competitors and finally decide which one to choose. Therefore, you need to make sure that the benefits your product delivers to solve customer pain points are clear.

  • Adoption

    Getting a paying customer is no easy task, so you must ensure that your customers are satisfied and stay loyal to your product. At this stage, your customers are now actively using your product and will develop different opinions about your product. They need to feel that your product has become an indispensable part of their lives.

    Follow up appropriately with different segments of users and help them realize the full potential of your product. Use NPS, CES, CSAT, and other surveys to learn what’s working and what isn’t. 

    At the end of this stage, your customers should ideally spread the word about how amazing your product is. These product advocates will help you acquire more prospects for the entire cycle to repeat.

3 tips to effectively manage customer journeys

Creating a system to manage your customer journeys effectively will help you boost revenue and growth. Here are three tips to help you manage customer journeys:

  • Tip #1: Aggregate customer data

    Customer data is spread across multiple channels over different points in time. So firstly, capture everything you can about your customers — user profile, user action, timestamps of action, etc. Then centralize all your customer data so that you can easily access it. This is vital to setting up a good foundation for robust customer journey analytics.

    Once you have all your customer data in place, you need the right tools to analyze it and derive actionable insights. Analyzing customer journeys allows you to identify problems at each journey stage. You notice the gaps between what your business thinks it’s delivering and what the customer is experiencing. By connecting metrics and qualitative data spread across multiple touchpoints, you can devise a plan of action to provide a superior customer experience.
