A customer journey map that is actionable and a current representation of the customer’s experience with your company is too valuable a tool to file away on a disk somewhere. How you make use of it is an indicator of the vitality of your company. Use it as a basis to continuously enhance customer experience.
Customer satisfaction is a key indicator of the health of your business. Both an early warning system and a validation of your efforts. It can be a key guidepost all along the customer journey and demonstrate the impact that your marketing efforts are having on your business objectives.
Customer journey mapping or funnel optimization? They are different perspectives of the same thing. One is the the view from the customer’s perspective. One is our gated internal process. We need both in our business.
