Before we start creating content for digital images, video, text, sound – we have to think who this content is targeted at – and this is where we have a concept of something that’s called a “buyer persona.”

A Buyer Persona (BP) is a fictional individual who is developed by an organization based on the organization’s researched profile of its typical customer. Not necessarily transacting but certainly “buying into your content”.

Persona Name
• Personal Details
o Background
o Job/Hobby details (B2C) or key job responsibilities (B2B)
o Role in purchase process, how are decisions made
• Communication mix
o Main sources of information (where personas do their research)
o Preferred content medium (how do they like to absorb content)
o Marketing message (messaging speaking directly to this persona)
• Goals and main points
o Goals
o Challenges/pain points, emotions accompanying those challenges (e.g. issues facing during day-today business that you product and services are helping to solve)
• Personal attributes
o Quotes (bring personas to life with actual quotes gathered during interviews)
o Objections (anticipate any objections from BP during purchase process and when on web site, what sections are they interested in)
