Presentation Description: Step 3: Trail Assessment and Condition Surveys (TRACS)

Presentation Description:
User experience isn’t just the designer's responsibility anymore. With the increasing availability of robust digital marketing tools, and the ability to implement and launch campaigns without the need for IT deployment support - the reality is that the marketing department is often responsible for the initial touchpoints of the customer experience. As such, there are a few core 'design thinking' principles that should be a part of every marketer’s playbook.

The first step, Identifying your Personas; and the second step, Documenting the User Journey, continue to be discussed and workshopped, but what comes after that?

TRACS is the third step in Lousy's methodology. It focuses on conducting customer journey touchpoint inventory, condition assessment, recommendations for service design modifications, and integrated marketing campaigns. TRACS utilizes existing research, VOC, and customer journeys to identify the various business goals and user needs, then offers a method to test and measure that those needs have been met.

This section of our methodology is inspired by the US Forest Service. After all, they are the experts on looking out for everyone's interests on a journey into the wilderness. It's not revolutionary thinking, but the power seems to lie in its ability to visualize the project from an abstracted view.

Let us walk you through our rationale, the main components and their constituent pieces, how we use it, and a preferred way to share the resulting thinking across the organization.

Presentation Description:

Move over Millennials, there’s a new kid in town. Teens today, known as Generation Z, outpace Millennials by 3M and wield $44B in buying power. Yet what makes Gen Z incredible is how different this group is from those born just a few years earlier. This generation of digital natives is an entirely different consumer—one you need a new marketing strategy to reach.


Packed with stories told directly from these screen-agers, you’ll learn how the next generation of customers wants to find info, transact, and connect with businesses like yours:

  • Where do they go for different types of content?

  • What motivates them to stay engaged?

  • What do they consider 'news' and how do they find it?

  • Why do they have 5+ Instagram accounts?

  • What draws them in

  • What keeps them coming back?

We’ll talk about content curation, social media preferences, multitasking, scavenger hunts across apps, inspiration from news feeds, authenticity, time obsession, money mindsets, and—of course—goat yoga.

If you don’t know this about Generation Z, you’ll be out of business before you can say 'IG'.
