Customers don’t generally search for wide area topics.

All said, here are 5 points on Buyer Personas for better Content Marketing-

1. Who is your actual customer?

2. Listen to them

This could be done through surveys or targeted interviews. Past data should also be considered while developing new strategies. This helps in making quality contents rather than a lengthy vague ones.

 

3. Check your website’s analytical data

After you have identified your actual customers and their problems, definitely the next step is finding solutions. But this doesn’t end your duty. Have a close watch on your website, and note the keywords commonly searched. This might vary with time. You have to be very observant.

5. Pictures of your customers with learning materials can be of help

This will definitely attract more customers. Properly positioned links and calls so that your website visitor would feel like returning back to your site.

With the growth of competition in Content Marketing it is necessary that you start working on new technology fields. Customer satisfaction is the ultimate goal which cannot be easily obtained.
