Define which needs the brand satisfies: With our Buyer Persona Template

Getting to know the target group: so you know who you’re talking to.

People’s values, needs, lifestyles and desires are factors that influence a purchase decision. In order to better understand why customers do or do not choose a brand, it is helpful to gain insight into their motivations, goals, frustrations and personalities as examples. In order to have a clear picture of who you are addressing with the brand presence, buyer personae are created.

Aspects of a Buyer Persona

A buyer persona makes a typical customer with concrete characteristics and needs within the target group vivid. A buyer persona can be derived from conversation insights with target group relevant persons or alternatively from experiences with existing customers. In contrast, “invented” buyer personas often correspond more to your own wishful thinking than to reality. Note: The buyer persona should provide insight into problems or wishes that are as concrete as possible and to which a brand can react.

Sound communicative measures

Buyer personae make it easier to put oneself in the position of the target group by way of example. Based on this, the brand can respond with solutions and derive appropriate communicative measures.
