Watch a short explainer video from Jen Murray, Marketing Consultant, Best Case Scenario. Find out the 4 Simple Steps to get Started on Event Journey Mapping.
Since the start of the Covid-19 restrictions we have served the changing online behaviours among your our client’s target audience. Our journey mapping methodologies are built around our experience and shift in marketing consumption giving you a clear view of what marketing asset mix is needed to get your prospects moving through the funnel.
I’m talking about the four simple steps you can take to creating a customer journey specific to event marketing
- It’s about driving prospects to interact and take notice of your event
- It’s about taking a holistic view of the pre, during and post event journey
- And most importantly don’t assume everyone is on the same journey and the same time
It takes at least 17 interactions in a b2b journey to get a response from a prospect, it’s important to keep in mind that the same marketing asset isn’t a one size fits all.
For example: Thought leadership assets can be effective at the beginning and end of a customer journey. At the beginning of a delegates journey – the focus on a thought leadership marketing asset is usually a wider- industry focused piece and demonstrates expertise and knowledge.
But as that delegate travels further on in the journey, thought leadership takes on a different role, where it’s more specific around a solution and how attending the event can be beneficial
We advise our clients to do 4 things to get them on the right track to journey mapping
- Identify 3-4 ideal personas you would like to see at your event
- Do some research into their persona’s marketing consumption
- Look internally to see what exists in terms of marketing assets
- Now you can identify the gaps in the journey and what resources are needed to balance the experience of the delegate with achieving event and corporate goals.
