That magical ingredient? Here it is:

Customer Journey Mapping

Think of it as a vision board where instead of you ending up on a TedX stage while holding a gold medal, you’re plotting your client’s path to successfully working with you. Both are equally amazing, right?  With customer journey mapping, you’ll consider every step they take on their buyer's journey so that you can be there for them at every point like a wise sherpa that they never knew they needed.

It’s Worth the Effort!

If you’re like most coaches, you already know that content is the key to making an impact in the coaching world, and the struggle to create and promote your content can get overwhelming at times (not to mention costly).

But here's what you may not know – when you combine it with the superpower of customer journey mapping, it becomes an unstoppable force! It's like combining the speed of a racing car with the precision of a laser-guided missile. 

In this article, we’ll go over what a Customer Journey Map is as well as its benefits, and access to a FREE step-by-step guide with everything you need to begin creating your CJM today.


Understanding the Customer’s Journey 

A magnifying glass helps us see details that we normally miss. A customer journey map does the same.

At this very moment, somebody is likely considering your business as a solution and is educating themselves with your content. And you probably have at least one customer thinking about repurchasing a course or coaching package from you. These two buyers are at different points in their journey. 

If you know someone is in the awareness stage, you’ll have a different conversation with them than with someone who’s in the decision stage and has already recognized some companies that can help them with their problem.

By understanding the customer journey, you can make sense of the data collected during each stage and use it to inform decisions that will optimize your customer’s experience. 


How Can a Customer Journey Map Grow My Coaching Business?

A customer journey map is a powerful visual tool that businesses of all sizes use to help them understand the micro-moments that make up their ideal customer's path within their sales funnel. It can either be a physical map or a digital chart or graph. 

It captures the full journey, from when the customer becomes aware of their problem and then your company, to what happens after they submit their order and beyond. 

But how does that grow your coaching business?

By meeting your prospect's content needs and organizing your processes, you are positioning yourself as an expert, creating an ecosystem that creates an exceptional client experience, and speeding up your sales process. Stay tuned, we'll go over all of the benefits of creating a customer journey map to grow your coaching business.
