The Complete Beginner's Guide to Creating Marketing Personas | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Building marketing personas can help improve the way you solve problems for your customers. Here is a blueprint and beginner's guide to getting started.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

Before you write a blog post, draft up sales copy, write that ebook, or send that tweet - it's super important to understand your brands unique voice, angle and message.

You may think this is as easy as saying, "I'll just be myself" - but even self branded individuals need to pay attention to who they are when they connect with people as "their brand". (Otherwise known as "not all private discussions need sent to your email list!")

Yong Ong's curator insight, April 23, 2014 12:17 PM

Building up a good image is essential to many individual, product or services. In this information technology age, where social media marketing is essential for almost all goods that are available in the market, the first impression on social network platform such as Facebook could simply decide its popularity in the market.

 

A right cover photo of a Facebook page could help lure the appetite of potential customers toward the product. This picture is required to be delivering ideas and information to customer directly. Messages such as announcements, brief description of products and event promotion could be shown on cover photo. This could either etch positive or negative image on targeted customers.  Creating a positive first impression could spark interest in consumers, then further browsing and explore of the brand could potentially be carried out by the consumers. 

 

Beisdes that, companies could utilise the cover photo of consumers. For instance, consumer would post their photo of drinking a bottle of  Ace of Spade Champaign. The showing off behaviour of certain group of consumer could be exploited and use it as a platform to gain popularity to the brand. 

 

Nevertheless, there is risk of posting prohibited photos that are against the terms and conditions of Facebook. Photos with labels such as price, discounts, to like, share or comment are strictly prohibited. 

 

Therefore, it is believe that utilising cover photo on Facebook well could help in branding and marketing. However, the terms and conditions of posting should be taken into deep consideration.
