As you carefully craft your content, it’s crucial to always remember who you’re talking to. And customer personas (sometimes called buyer personas), help us to think of our customers clearly and to relate to them as real human beings.
Customer personas are fictional, generalised representation profiles of our typical customers. They enable us to understand our customers’ wants and needs which is essential to creating great targeted content that will resonate with them.
We’ve created this handy five-step guide to give you a gentle push in the right direction…
This covers everything including family, career, gender, age, income, location, attitude and communication preferences.

Once you’ve figured out everything you need to know about your buyer personas, you can begin to carefully craft great content for them.
