It will break down the complexity of communication and distribution channels that your ideal customer uses and help you better deliver the right message, to the right customer, at the right time, using the right channel. This improved customer knowledge enables you to deliver a more personalised experience at individual touchpoints and perfect the whole customer journey.

Key takeaways:

  • The Customer Persona and how to tailor it to your business.
  • Understanding the different phases of a customer journey.
  • Development of a customer journey map.
