Buyer’s journey

The buyer's journey is a marketing concept that refers to the entire process of research and reflection that the prospect goes through before buying a product or service.

For companies, whether they involve B2B or B2C, analyzing the buyer's journey enables them to get to know potential customers better and thus be able to offer them personalized support at every stage of their purchasing journey.

Traditional marketing strategies, but also content marketing and inbound marketing, make the buyer's journey the focal point of all their actions.

This makes it possible to implement a lead nurturing strategy to create content capable of answering all the questions that potential buyers may have during their journey.

Different types of content can be produced to meet the needs of shoppers at each stage of their buying journey. Blog articles, videos, ebooks, infographics, etc. are all aimed at capturing the prospective customer's attention, providing food for thought, and, finally, encouraging them to buy.

The buyer's journey is made up of three key stages:

  • Awareness phase: this corresponds to the moment when the prospect becomes aware that they have a need or a problem to solve.
  • Consideration phase: the prospect looks for solutions to meet their need by comparing the various alternatives available on the market.
  • Decision phase: having considered all possible solutions and weighed up the pros and cons, the prospect is ready to make the purchase.

A fourth stage is sometimes suggested to complete the buyer's journey. This is the loyalty phase.

For companies, keeping customers loyal is much more profitable than acquiring new customers. That's why they must invest in customer satisfaction at this stage.

Customers will then be able to buy from the company again, share their experience, and become brand ambassadors within their network.

The buyer's journey is an essential tool for creating effective marketing strategies. It helps us to better understand the buyer persona and build trust with them right from the consideration phase.

The buyer's journey thus increases the chances of generating leads and converting them into customers, ultimately increasing sales for the business.
