Mapping Content to the Customer Journey: 5 Keys to Success

Every interaction with prospects and customers is an opportunity to delight and inform. Content plays one of the biggest roles in creating outstanding customer experiences. Connecting customer and content can be a challenge. All organizations, whether B2C or B2B, should develop customer journeys with the intent of building a relationship with the customer. Doing so will allow you to leverage these journeys within your content planning and creation processes.

Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my guests, Adam Helweh and Kevin P. Nichols for this free, one-hour webinar designed to describe and define the modern customer journey and explore the role content plays in fueling how prospects and customers interact with your brand at each stage.

Attendees will learn what a modern customer journey actually looks like; why relying on a linear or funnel approach isn't as helpful as you might think and what is the impact of providing the right content at the right time to prospects and customers alike. In addition, Adam and Kevin will talk about the role content plays in shaping customer experience, how to use a customer journey map for effective content planning and creation, and what you need to create a customer-journey content map.

  • The Personalization Paradox Jun 18 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Val Swisher
    Content personalization - delivering the right content, to the right person, on the right device, at the right time, in the right language - has become a corporate imperative for companies large and small. According to Infosys, 86% of consumers surveyed indicated that personalized content has some impact on what they purchase and 25% said that personalization plays a large role in their purchases.

    And yet, looking at the data, two things stand out: 1) Most companies say that personalizing the customer experience is a critical “must have,” and they have the statistics to back it up. 2) Very few companies believe they are delivering enough personalized content, or deliver it well.

    Join Val Swisher, CEO of Content Rules, to learn about The Personalization Paradox. What’s holding these companies back from their personalization goals? And how can you avoid the pitfalls and make your personalization possible with your own enterprise content?

    In this webinar, you will learn:

    • Why personalized content is imperative to the enterprise
    • Why so many companies fail to deliver
    • The five dimensions of creating personalizable content
