Personas: understanding your target © 2014

Let’s talk about… • Understanding customers and users. • Not about being a slave to customers’ whims. • Gaining insights which will help you meet your business objectives. • Designing for the experiences and behaviours you hope to create for users of a product or service, or engaging in social media and digital marketing interaction. • We call this: © 2014 Experience Led Innovation

Put yourself in the user’s shoes … now how does your company look? © 2014

Understand the user perspective How many people would push the wrong button for this lift? © 2014

Getting it right… “the user experience is what we care about most” Steve Jobs © 2014

Personas A tool to assist with understanding and effective targeting of specific user groups • • • • © 2014 Allows you to describe a target Persona in some detail Helps you appreciate their perspective Understand how and why they make decisions Behaviours, locations, motivations, other brands of interest

Personas Two main ways to use this tool: 1. Develop speculative profiles • Useful for idea exploration, or quick user perspective questioning 2. Better understanding an existing target market • Build on what you already know, and take this further to gain key insights. Who is your target audience? Personas can be as quick or as involved as you wish – but do be aware of the limitations of the approach you have taken. © 2014

Personas: How to use it • • • • • • • • © 2014 Goal is to describe the target customer as a real person Give them a name and image Age, gender, interests Use situation – when do they buy / use this product? Key information needs Decision making factors Increase personal description for B2C situations, e.g. music, brands Understand decision-making role for B2B situations

Personas: examples © 2014

Personas: examples © 2014

Personas: some common mistakes 1. Too much speculation • Imagination is good! But balance with hard market knowledge 2. Stereotypes and assumptions • Beware assuming traditional roles, genders, etc 3. Over-simplifying a market • Lumping everyone together may miss important insights 4. Too much segmentation • © 2014 Look for common behaviour and motivation traits which cut across demographics
