Everything You Need to Know About: Buyer Personas

Your buyer personas are practically your digital marketing strategy’s bread and butter and your bullseye all rolled into one. It only makes sense that “63% of marketers create content by buyer persona.” Personas do just that - they help you personalize your content, offerings, and messages to ensure you’re being heard and understood by your target market. In fact, you’re twice as likely to be heard if you can personalize your ads to the pain points of your buyer personas.

Not All Personas Are Right For You

As a digital marketing agency, we’ll be the first to tell you how valuable buyer personas are to your business. Actually, our favorite thing to hear from prospective clients is that the target audience for their product or service is “everyone.” We like hearing this because we enjoy doing the research and validating that every business has a unique niche, and with that comes a unique set of customers that are a perfect fit for your company’s efforts and marketing dollars.

How Do I Verify the Buyer Personas for My Swim School?

Hey swim schools, do you really know your target audience? You’re probably thinking the obvious answer; families whose kids need swim lessons, of course! But, if you’re really looking to fill your pools with more kids and waiting rooms with more parents, then we have to dive a bit deeper than that, and we do this by creating buyer personas. Buyer personas are the semi-fictional representation of your ideal customers. They are created to narrow down your marketing focus so that your resources, money, time, and effort are spent on the people who are going to benefit your business the most.

4 Things I Love About Buyer Personas

In this day and age, there is hardly a new destination that we don’t plug into our mobile or car GPS to help guide us there. Printing out directions or using an actual map are the analog equivalent to finding your way around. Think of buyer personas as the GPS to your digital marketing efforts and focus. They guide every turn you make, leading you closer to your end goal, and your digital marketing strategy is far more effective with them. In fact, a study by HubSpot found that using marketing personas made websites 2-5 times more effective and easier to use than websites that didn’t. That’s the difference between making a wrong turn on your way to your destination or arriving there in record time.

Why You Need Personas for Your Content Marketing Strategy

Did your parents ever tell you not to name animals you weren’t going to keep? They probably said this because they didn’t want you getting too attached; it’s much harder to say goodbye to Buddy than to the random stray dog.

Marketers will become much more invested in content creation and trying to wow their target audience when using personas. By identifying the demographics and psychographics to develop a persona, marketers are more attached to the data, stakeholders can visualize the direction of the content more easily, and customers can quickly and easily relate by aligning themselves with a persona.
