Buyer Insights or Marketing Persona

Buyer Insights will tell you what recent buyers were thinking and doing as they spent money and time to solve problems that you address. Understanding what triggered a recent buyers search for a solution, what results they were looking to deliver, their perceived risks and barriers and the criteria that they used to choose a final solution will tell you a lot about how prospective buyers are likely to make their purchase decisions.

A marketing persona is a term that causes your salespeople to roll their eyes when they hear it. Why? Because they know that there is nothing captured in that persona that will actually help them influence their buyers purchase decision. A marketing persona is very good at predicting age, income, values, lifestyles and social interests of ideal prospects. If you sell exercise equipment, it may be helpful to know this information but It’s difficult to imagine how a marketing persona would persuade a CFO to improve their compliance practices. And do you really need a marketing persona to tell you that a CFO is risk averse?

You think you're customer-focused but you're not. It's a blind spot and you're operating off of assumptions that give a false baseline and that means that your sales and marketing will be off.

A fabulously irreverent blogger (@AdContrarian ) said "Your not on a journey, unless you have holes in your socks and you smell like a goat".

#buyers aren't navigating a journey, They're solving problems and he last thing they want to do is buy anything.

Your current #contentmarketing Strategy is perfectly focused on the 3% of marketing leads that are willing and able to buy - the #Sales ready lead.
For the other 97% your #content is useless. You need to teach these prospects how to buy not what to buy.

Sales reps and Marketers are from Mars, Buyers are from New Jersey (Bob Hoffman @AdContrarian ).
Reps are trying to uncover needs and qualify an opportunity while the buyer is trying to navigate through all the people, policies and departmental politics.
