Have you considered being your own customer? What I mean is look at your business from the perspective of a customer. For example, if you sell your products online and notice your cart abandonment rate is high.

Another scenario could be that you have a high engagement rate on your marketing campaigns, but your conversion rates are low. If you are experiencing situations like these, then it may be time to create customer journey maps from the initial contact through closing of the sale.
