Persona Marketing Services

The fundamental concept of persona marketing is simple: Speak directly to your audience as if you were one of them, and address their specific needs.

Persona Marketing has been instrumental in creating high performing ad campaigns for some of the largest companies in the world.

Persona Marketing is a new model of marketing that focuses on your customer’s unique fears, desires, and quirks. It is an ideal approach for businesses to determine who they are creating for, what they do, and why.

This form of behavioural targeting enables advertisers to reach prospective customers and web users based on their behaviour rather than their stated interests.

What is a marketing persona?

A marketing persona is a fictional, composite character that represents the target customer for a specific product or service.

In essence, this is a description of your customer that captures the essential characteristics they share.

Persona’s when researched correctly, embody important demographic and psychographic information about your ideal customer. By creating a picture of who this person is, and what drives them in life, allowing you to be able to have a better understanding of potential customers and what they need from your products or services.

  • Demographic Application
  • Habits of shopping
  • Place
  • Job Status / Summary
  • Interest in commodities
  • The necessity for a commodity

Each persona defines who your customers or employees are and what motivates them about your brand. Personas have grown in complexity as market research techniques have developed.

The number of marketing personas your business needs to make effective customer relationships is problematic. So stop counting! Prohibition Insights Persona Marketing analytics help you keep in touch with your customers throughout the buying cycle, without compromising your contact or content strategy.

Are there different types of marketing personas?

A marketing persona is a compilation of information about a group of customers. This information is compiled into one profile. Using personas means you can streamline your marketing efforts, by knowing who you are targeting and what content they need to be receiving.

Here are four distinct marketing personas, each representing a different segment of your target audience.

  • Marketing persona
  • Buyer persona
  • Customer persona
  • Audience persona

All marketing personas have one thing in common: They’re based on real customers.

Persona Marketing is an incredibly powerful, customer-centric marketing method that can help you better target your products and messaging to people who will buy them.

What’s the difference between personas and segmentation?

Every marketer knows that you have to find the right audience if you want your product to be successful.

Your customers may be unique, but they usually conform to a few identifiable traits.

The identity of homogeneous client groups is validated by segmentation, while people help to enrich those identities for other purposes.

A good persona is easily distinguishable from a segment. Segments are groups of people who share similar characteristics (e.g., demographics, psychographics or geography), whereas personas are whole personas with complete biographies and complex needs, goals, motivations, and values. A segment is a convenient way to group buyers into buckets of related data; while a persona is an individual buyer with unique wants, needs and goals who you could name.

Why do you need marketing personas?

With more than 50% of B2B marketers still not using marketing personas, find out what you are missing.

The answer is simple. Focus on individual customers to make products and services more relevant and solve real, human-centred problems. It improves customer retention and acquisition by optimising your content to specific audiences.

If you’re currently not using personas on your marketing, your business is at a real disadvantage. Personas will help you create targeted marketing materials that resonate with your customers- and bring them to life.

The most important piece for marketing success is knowing your audience. With Personas, you can focus on the things that matter to your company, your sales team and your customers.

Brand Repositioning

“Brand Repositioning has now become an essential part of any company’s marketing strategy. This involves re-establishing a brand, product or services as the market evolves and competitors increase.”

Brand repositioning, or rebranding, is a strategy of marketing management. The goal of a brand repositioning strategy is to redefine a company or product in the consumer’s mind. Repositioning a brand involves changing the associations and perceptions that consumers hold about its products and/or services. This means recognising some of a brand’s current weaknesses and strategically improving them into strengths.

Helping you to increase your revenues and cut your costs with persona marketing.

Prohibition Insights and persona marketing can be used to reposition your product in the market. Most companies start by building a brand based on their perception of themselves, but this is often far from the truth, resulting in a brand with very little connection to consumers and what they think or feel about you.

Many companies today have embarked on the decision to rebrand and strategy to their products to be more modern and consistent. It is a process that often carries with it a certain amount of risk when you take into consideration the number of resources that can potentially be wasted. With any significant move like this, there must be a number of considerations for what will help you through those troubled waters.

You think your brand caters to a specific niche, but in reality, it appeals to many; therefore, interactions with these different target groups should reflect their differences. With persona marketing, you can develop marketing messages that speak to the needs and desires of a variety of consumer profiles. This approach integrates market segmentation analysis with qualitative research and provides a goal-oriented roadmap that will matter most to diverse consumers.

Are there different types of marketing personas?

Can You segment your marketing?
You will be able to customise and segment your content more efficiently once you’ve built your consumer personas, delivering messages that are targeted to each personality.

Apple is a perfect example of a business that knows how to segment its audience, targeting various campaigns to a multitude of different markets. In recent years, its commercials have included ultra-cool, street-wise commercials targeting millennials who enjoy cutting-edge technology, advertisements for families who rely on their smartphones and tablets to handle their everyday lives and keep up with their family, and campaigns targeting business professionals who work on-the-go using their Apple products. There have also been commercials targeting amateur photographers out there who explicitly use their smartphones to catch stunning off-the-cuff moments. These are four very different people, all very successfully targeted by Apple.

What are buyer personas? What are the main components of well-developed buyer personas?
Fictionalized images of your ideal customers are buyer personas. They are intended to give you a comprehensive image of your target clients and to help you better understand their usual patterns of research, decision-making, and purchasing. Personas are made up of information about these ideal clients, including, but certainly not limited to: demographics, motivations, goals, pain points, position within the structure of their company, behaviours, and who they work with for decision-making assistance.
How long should my personas be?
The more accurate details you have, the better, Personas should be as comprehensive as possible. In order to completely meet their needs, you want to paint a detailed image of the persona.
How many personas should I have?
As many as needed by your organisation. It is possible that companies with a wide variety of goods or services would have more people than companies with a few products and services. But don’t fall into the pit of expanding your buyer persona to all the kinds of clients you may have. You want your staff to be focused on the kind of clients that you want to have.
