Deliver a flawless customer experience with an online empathy map
Explore every pain point, thought, and feeling
Make sure that your customers have a positive experience with your business, product, or service. Empathy mapping starts with four quadrants outlining what your customer says, thinks, does, and feels. By documenting customer behaviors, you and your team can identify user pain points, build consensus on customer needs, and work towards solutions. Use Lucidspark to help your team visualize where your customer is coming from and stay aligned on what you need to do to improve.

Begin your empathy map online from scratch or by dragging out an empathy map template onto your Lucidspark board. With infinite space to fill with your insights and findings, your board can house all the information your team needs and more. Add freehand drawings, images, sticky notes, and even additional customer insight templates—such as a customer journey map—to continue building out the best experience possible for your user.

How to create an empathy map in Lucidspark in 5 steps
Compile your research
Get together all the relevant research data you have on your customers. This could include interviews, survey data, or customer journey maps.
Start empathy mapping
Begin your visual with an empathy map template---or add four containers to your board and label them “Says,” “Thinks,” “Does,” and “Feels.”
Address customer pains and gains
Add two sections for customer pain points (a.k.a. problems they want solved) and customer gains, or possible solutions to these problems.
List questions and brainstorm answers
Make a list of specific questions for each section of your empathy map. Brainstorm ideas for each section of your map together with your team.
Finalize and share your empathy map
Review the final version of your map and have your participants add their two cents on the experience. Ask them if it changed their view of your business, product, or service.

A demo of a sample Lucidspark brainstorming board is shown, with lots of active participation from the four participants across the entire board. Next, a rapid series of close ups demonstrating some Lucidspark features: Writing on a sticky note, drawing a circle around an idea, starting a 30-second timer, crossing an item off an agenda, adding emoji reactions to a sticky note, and sharing a board with collaborators in the share settings. The video then continues to demo features in line with the narrator's audio for the remainder of the video. The video ends with the Lucidspark logo and tagline Where ideas ignite.
