3 Ways to Use Customer Journey Maps in eCommerce
With an estimated 27.2% of the world’s population now shopping online, it’s never been more important to understand your customer’s journey on the route to purchasing from your online store.
Even brands that sell top quality or incredibly useful products must take time to understand the customer journey. Failing to do so could be limiting sales and doing your brand a disservice. Customers expect a seamless and efficient experience from the moment they land on your site all the way to the confirmation they receive after a purchase. If your customer is finding it difficult to navigate through your site, that’s often where the journey with your brand ends. Online shoppers are quick to click the back button and find an easier path with a competitor.

These statistics highlight both the incredible opportunities and challenges facing companies looking to grow their eCommerce businesses as millions of customers have changed their shopping habits out of necessity. By better understanding customer journeys, eCommerce companies can transform site visitors into customers who are open to sharing and promoting their experiences with others.
