Why buyer personas are important for your content strategy

24 June, 2015

As a business owner or a marketer, we are all trying to sell something - be it a product or a service. What this means is that there are millions and millions of products or services being promoted online.

So what exactly is the best way to approach sales of a product or a service? The way I am comfortable doing it with my clients is by first defining the buyer persona. Whom are you selling to?

Can you identify your buyer persona? Once this is clear, setting your content marketing strategy becomes an accurate, clear task. This means that creating buyer personas is always your first step to a successful sales path.

What are buyer personas?

According to Hubspot, "A buyer persona is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal customer based on market research and real data about your existing customers. When creating your buyer persona(s), consider customer demographics, behavior patterns, motivations, and goals. The more detailed you are, the better."

This morning I came across this infographic created by the great folks over at CJC Marketing about the importance of buyer personas in content marketing. I felt that it beautifully illustrates the importance of buyer personas in content marketing, breaking down all the elements clearly and simply. Therefore, I am sharing this with you all. I hope you find it helpful.
