What is a user journey?
A user journey is a path defined by the journey which a user takes while browsing a website. The insight provided by user journeys helps creators design websites that are intentionally structured to ensure a user reaches their ‘goal’ as efficiently as possible.

User journey’s identify each step needed to reach a goal
By clearly laying out the route in which a user would need to take to achieve a specific goal, you enable a more efficient journey for other customers through adapting this route. The journey itself will involve several pages and decisions that take the potential customer from one to another.
A user journey is a key aspect in your over marketing analytics as it identifies a ‘typical’ route a customer could take, then it is modified into an ‘ideal’ route to enable efficiency. Usually a user journey is illustrated through a flow diagram identifying key pages and decision points throughout the entire journey.
Understanding Your Customers
In creating a user journey that is realistic in terms of your current audience, you must first use profiling to identify these users. Each user that reaches your business’s website will have a specific goal (even if they don’t know it yet), whether they’re looking to purchase a product or simply find your store opening hours. The steps leading up to these goals being fulfilled is the essence of a user journey.
UX JOURNEY PROCESS
Track Your Customer Journey
First, track your customers’ journey. This will give you a better understanding of what actions they are taking on your site, what motivates them to choose these actions and what their intentions are. This real time data analysis tracks customers journeys, collects customers behaviours, patterns and feedback. Using this information you can imitate the customers’ thought process into your UX journey process.
What Can You Do With Customer Data?
Once you have determined your customers behaviour you can extract actionable insights from customer data. For example, offering them services/ products they are not aware of or placing what they are most interested in at the forefront of their screens.
Redesign Customer Journey
You want to provide an interactive user experience with your brand rather than just the product itself. It is the trust customers have in your brand that makes them want to purchase your product or service, so this step is vital to succeed against your competitors. Customers expect their relationship with brands to be accessible, easy to use and personalised so make sure your UX journey reflects this.
