TACTIC 1 – BE AUDIENCE AWARE

Build 4 audience personas which accurately represent your target customers. Work out their demographic information such as gender, age, income, employment, location and education using social media profiles, customer service surveys and FAQs.

Add depth such as their interests, families, homes, pets, cars, holidays, clothes, sports, music, tech, food, news and entertainment sources.

Look for trends, such as mostly men in their 30s or women in their 50s, specific cities or job roles, and other common factors such as marital statuses, career histories and interests.

Identify their motivator – money, recognition, achievement, comfort, independence, relationships, development or something else. What goal does your service help your personas achieve?

Discover their pain point – is it getting employees to follow safety procedures consistently or high staff turnover? What barriers to success does your service help your personas overcome?

A good persona is a picture of who your customers are and who they want to be. It allows you to build deeper relationships by delivering personalised content where your target customers want it.
