How to Transform Prospects Into The Value of the Customer

Journey

Now that you are aware of customer value journey is what’s the next step is to understand what the Customer Value Journey is.

The most important thing to know is:

How can you effortlessly and discreetly guide customers and potential clients through

every stage that is part of the Customer Value Pathway?

The answer is simple: You design marketing CAMPAIGNS are INTENTIONALLY

transfer individuals from one place to another.

Campaigns and deliberately are important in this case. This is why

Let’s break them down one by one.

What is a marketing campaign?

The first step is to discuss what a “campaign” really means.

A marketing campaign consists of two essential elements:

* An appeal to take action

• A source of traffic

Call to Action is the thing you would like people to do. If your marketing campaign is successful, it will be.

Your creation is geared towards the”Subscribe” phase in the customer journey your

The call to action could be to encourage individuals to download a whitepaperor checklist or

Video source. If the campaign is in the Convert or Ascend stages, you can make a call to

The goal could be to purchase the product or action could be to purchase a product or. If your campaign is designing

is an awareness stage. and the prompt to take action could just be as easy as a listen to

an episode of a podcast or reading blog posts.

The source of traffic can be digital clicks from advertisements email sites, social media or

search engines , such as Google. Offline marketing may consist of direct mail television or

radio advertisements printed ads, radio advertising, or any other form of advertising that puts an action call the front

of your potential customers.

Chapter 01: Your Digital Marketing Strategy

Template (AKA The Customer Value Journey)

28

Now that you understand what a campaign is we can discuss what a campaign actually is.

is supposed to do.

The goal of a marketing campaign is to consciously move individuals away from

The first step in the Value Journey to the next.

For instance:

The campaign may be aimed at getting people to sign-up for your emails

List (going between Engaged and Subscribe).

A different campaign could be aimed at getting new customers to become enthusiastic

regarding the purchase (going between Convert on Excite).

Again, take note that a campaign is purposefully moving people around the

Value Journey. That term “intentionally” is crucial.

Intentionally guiding customers through The Value Journey

Anyone who’s ever been an employee of a business has gone through

it’s the Value Journey, whether that company deliberately made it happen or not.

Sometimes, people travel through their Value Journey on accident.

Imagine that you’ve never had any idea about Dropbox prior to. And then, you discover that Dropbox is a thing.

Day, a friend informs you that he utilizes Dropbox to keep all his files online and

We recommend checking the site out.

At this moment, you as well as your friend have made progress through the Value

Journey. You’ve moved to Step 1 Aware Your friend has been moved to Step 2.

8, Promote.

This was not the result of any action Dropbox did

intentionally. It was the result of an accidental comment or informal conversation

between you with your with your.

Compare that with Dropbox’s advertising campaign that offers extra space for

clients who refer family and friends:

Chapter 01: Your Digital Marketing Strategy

Template (AKA The Customer Value Journey)

29

Give rewards to people who take the actions you want them to do.

In this instance, Dropbox is moving people through the value-added journey.

Intentionally, by creating a program specifically for that particular

purpose.

This is a crucial distinction to be made.

Once you’ve figured out the way, you can influence people by virtue of the Value

Experience using advertising campaigns. You see that you’re able to

increase the success of your business by improving the areas that your customers can access

In this instance, I’d like to make clear that there’s one error that’s commonplace that many

companies commit when trying to guide prospects and customers through the

The most common mistake marketers make when creating campaigns

When a company is aware of their Customer Journey they will become super thrilled

regarding the possibility of moving people to strangers

Promoter to advertiser in one step to promoter in one step, all within one program.

This is not possible.

It’s impossible to design a campaign to make people aware of your brand,

They are enticed, get them to sign up and convert they are excited, and then ascends

them, and later transforms the advocates into promoters and supporters.

In addition, you must make multiple campaigns that are specifically designed to

help people move between one point to move them from one stage to. (Or in certain cases the campaign may

Most likely, people will go through two or perhaps three steps in a row at the same time.)

The most effective way to present this is through few examples.
