How to Create a Buyer Persona

This is Chapter 1 from the Buyer Persona Guide

If you are a marketer or business owner, chances are you’ve heard about buyer personas.

But is it clear what a buyer persona really is? What does it represent? How can it help your business? 

Simply put, a buyer persona is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal customer (a detailed description of your target customer) based on market research and real data about your already existing customers.

If you are wondering who you are you selling to, who your actual buyer is, it’s time to get to know them. It’s time you knew what your buyer likes or dislikes, what your buyer’s dreams, hopes, pain points, desires and needs are.

Know what your buyer really wants. And develop a marketing strategy that’s focused on your buyer and not yourself as a brand.

We believe that probably all marketing should start with getting to know your buyers first.

Know who they are and what they want. How do you do that? Well, the best way you can get real insight and understanding about your buyer is to create a buyer persona (or otherwise called customer avatar).
