Here is a niftly how-to article on creating Personas by Dayna Rothman in order to target your marketing efforts and be more successful.


What is the connection to storytelling? Well.....Personas are not stories. But they are the characters for your stories. Personas are the research you do to create compelling characters -- for your stories. They are who your stories are about, and who they are targeted to.


Personas clearly help you identify your audience. Effective storytelling relies on knowing who your audience is in order for the stories to connect with them.


At some point in your business, creating Personas is both helpful and an important activity to do.


I like the suggestions in this article for how to do the research to create your Personas, the number to build (no more than 3 please), and the #1 mistake people make when generating their Personas.


This article is not very long, but it does have lots of good tips. What I like to do when creating Personas, or updating mine, is to create a collage for each. It is much more fun and creates a visual record of each that my website and graphic design folks can use.


Enjoy!
