Customer Personas & Journeys

What’s the number one rule of Marketing? You are not your customer.

And yet, many businesses invest time, money and effort in marketing their product or service without first walking that mile in their customers’ shoes. Well developed customer personas are the key to engaging with your audience. They take the guesswork out of your marketing, give direction to your communication, and improve your ROI.
