Understanding Customer Value Journey

Understanding Customer Value Journey

August 4th, 2020
11:45am – 1pm
(Facebook Live Event)

  • How to transform target audience from strangers to raving fans
  • How to Improve Customer Experience
  • Discover Where Your Audience Is Dropping Off and How to Re-Engage

People aren’t born aware of Apple, Starbucks, or Disney, so how do they do it? Getting noticed by potential customers who aren’t aware of you is no easy task.
The Customer Value Journey allows you to stand out among the crowd as it gives you a step-by-step process for attracting, converting, and keeping your best customers. As a business owner, your goal is to help customers move along this journey faster. That’s why you can’t use just one tactic or an ongoing series of unfocused marketing campaigns. You need a plan that addresses every stage of the Journey. And you need to think in terms of optimizing that journey.
