Customer journey mapping

Discover omnichannel journey mapping for more coherent customer experiences and more targeted content strategies.

Noz Urbina Gatwick workshop

A customer journey map (CJM) a vital tool in modern content projects. It helps us to understand our users’ potential experiences and brand interactions across multiple touch-points and channels. Once this is mapped, a business can help improve its processes, refine content targeting, and enable contextual and personalised content.

This classroom-based workshop is delivered in conjunction with our training partner Urbina Consulting, It is designed for digital communications professionals and anyone interested in honing their adaptive content skills and improving the online customer experience.

What you’ll learn

We’ll look at how CJMs work to paint a detailed picture of the user’s experiences, content needs and feelings across the stages of their journey, bringing together content requirements with a matrix of potential channel details such as devices, staff interactions and physical environments. This unifies a large amount of customer understanding into a consumable deliverable, allowing teams to build personalisation and omnichannel-ready content models and editorial plans.

Join our session to get a template, methodology and business justification for customer journey mapping that you can use with your teams and even colleagues across silos. Start improving your content strategies the minute you get back to work.
