A buyer persona is a semi-fictional profile or characterization of your target audience based on detailed market research as well as current data from existing clientele. Put more simply, a buyer persona is a character that you create to represent your ideal customer.
Even if you feel like you have a good idea of who your target audience is, in order to really connect and influence them, you need to understand them inside and out. Almost as well as you know yourself (if not better). Buyer personas are also great for promoting and maintaining alignment within a company or business. Using a buyer persona to determine exactly who your target audience is will help eliminate inconsistencies and ensure that you're collectively implementing the correct tactics and strategies as a team.
We wrote in-depth about buyer personas on our blog and provided an outline and template for you to follow. If that’s too much work or if you just need a hand, don’t worry, we got you. Reach out to us and we’ll work with you to create detailed buyer personas for your brand.
