Buyer’s persona is a thing and media update’s Jana van der Westhuizen is here to show you the magic of caring about what your consumer wants.
What is buyer’s persona?
We live in a day and age where the public is constantly faced with information overload. In order to actually capture your buyer’s attention, you need to know what content or offering they are looking for.
Buyers persona refers to asking questions like:
- Who is my consumer?
- What do they like or dislike?
- How can I make them feel valued?
These three questions immediately help you to build a strategy around what type of person you want to sell your product to.
It is important to create a detailed strategy where you plot elements such as:
- job function, and
- the general interest of your consumer.
Luckily, social listening tools do the stalking for you!
Why should you care?
Typically, you would only care about selling your product — but with buyer’s persona, you are able to personalise your approach so that your consumer feels more valued.
The more target specific your approach is the more you can solve certain challenges, gain consumer trust and develop more product offerings that will fulfil your client’s needs. Remember — with trust comes loyalty and will loyalty comes the ching-ching.
