Marketing automation is perfect for creating a personalised customer experience & building relationships & loyalty over time.

It starts with mapping out your customer journey.

This is different for every business, but there are some common key moments in a customer’s journey that most businesses will experience:

 

Awareness & Engagement

First encounter with your business, for example via an ad or piece of content – Interaction at this stage, sometimes anonymous, provides a first ‘touchpoint’ in the journey

 

Subscription

The individual has indicated interest in what you do – They now start to share data about who they are, their interests & intent

 

Conversion

They become a paying customer at some level – Could be a low value transaction but there’s an important psychological shift in the relationship

 

Excitment & Ascention

Your new customer shows increased trust & engagement – The relationship deepens as they invest more money/time/resources with your business

 

Advocacy

Your customer starts actively promoting your business to others – They become your best & most profitable source of new business.
