Customer Experience MappingRead More...
Customer Experience Mapping is a way for your organization to ‘walk a mile in your customer’s shoes’ so you can deeply understand and connect to their needs, hopes and experiences.
With this perspective, your organization can innovate in order to more highly target your sales, customer care, and planning processes. The result? Better service to your customers and a growing customer base.
Here’s how we’ll map your customers’ experiences: Think of the process as a dynamic, facilitated conversation between your organization and your customers. You will put yourself in your customers’ shoes in order to experience using your product or service from their perspective. During the session, a graphic recorder will visually capture the experiences and challenges that your customers describe.
The resulting knowledge is invaluable when it comes to building trust, generating sales and improving partnerships.
The Customer Experience Mapping process is highly beneficial for sales teams, customer care, and senior management.
