How to engage with your customers throughout their journey

How to engage your users on each stage of the customer lifecycle

There’s life after conversion!

The customer lifecycle is divided into stages.

  • Reach
  • Acquisition
  • Conversion
  • Retention
  • Loyalty

The following are some great ways to engage with your users on each stage:

Reach stage

Follow with email messages via some form of marketing automation (which can be as simple as a Mailchimp autoresponder sequence).

Acquisition stage

Integrate your landing page and rich content to acquire contact information from your leads.

Segment your audience according to the blog posts or content they’re downloading for special engagement with each segment.

Nurture the leads through email.

Conversion stage

Make a person-to-person communication with your users. Marketing automation also helps with this.
