What is a journey map?

A journey map is a visual representation of the steps a customer takes as they interact with a product, service, or organization. It helps identify pain points, opportunities for improvement, and areas of delight along the way.

Here's a step-by-step guide for creating a journey map:

Define the journey

Determine the scope of your map. What is the customer journey you want to focus on? Be specific about the starting point and endpoint.

Gather data

Collect data about the journey through customer research. This can include surveys, interviews, and observational studies. Consider both qualitative and quantitative data.

Create personas

Develop personas that represent the different types of customers who interact with the product or service. This helps to personalize the journey map and make it more relatable.

Map the journey

Draw the journey map with a timeline or series of steps. Use the data you collected to plot the customer's emotional state at each stage and include any pain points, opportunities, and positive experiences.

Analyze the map

Look for patterns and insights that emerge from the map. What are the common pain points or moments of delight? Where are the opportunities for improvement?

Identify opportunities

Based on your analysis, identify the most significant areas for improvement. These might be moments where the customer is frustrated, or where they are delighted and could be encouraged to do more.

Take action

Use the insights from your journey map to inform changes to the customer experience. This might involve changes to the product or service itself, improvements to customer service or marketing, or changes to the user interface.


Continuously monitor the customer journey and update the map as needed. Regularly gather feedback and make improvements to the experience.
