In a recent session, Asa Schachar shed light on User Journey Mapping, elucidating how it can drive growth and enhance user experience.
User Journey Mapping is a strategic process that tracks the steps a user takes from becoming aware of your product or service to becoming a regular user or even an advocate. It's about understanding the user's behaviors and thought processes, and crucially, meeting them where they are in their journey.
The Airbnb Example
Asa used the example of Airbnb to illustrate this journey. It started from the user:
Becoming aware of Airbnb → Considering it as an option → Converting to using Airbnb →
Finally, becoming a repeat user and advocating for it
This journey from awareness to conversion is particularly crucial for growth.
Visualizing the User Journey
To effectively map this journey, Asa recommends:
a. Visualizing it like a comic strip, illustrating the user's daily activities and interactions.
b. Gaining a deep understanding of the user to provide valuable insights into their behaviors and preferences.
c. Using these insights to improve the product or service and meet the user's needs more effectively.
Another key insight from Asa's session was the importance of thinking about the user's journey in the context of their current behaviors and meeting them where they are. For example, if a user is likely to be using a mobile device because they are busy and at home, then the product or service should be optimized for mobile use.
User Journey Mapping is more than just a strategic tool - it's a lens through which we can understand our users better, identify opportunities for improvement, enhance user satisfaction, and ultimately drive growth.
