To truly understand the customer journey, you must first understand consumer intent. By learning what motivates your customers on every step of the customer journey, you are able to anticipate and deliver answers to their questions and concerns while further guiding them through their path to purchase.

While it’s important to understand how people move through this path, it’s not enough to simply know “how,” “when” and “where” customers are engaging. It’s even more important to understand why consumers behave the way they do
