Exploring a persona

With the Persona Canvas you can quickly capture and visualize multiple customers of your target audience. A persona will help you in the right direction when creating campaigns or a business model.

What you’ll need:

  • A Pen
  • 1 or multiple printed Persona Canvases.
  • You can use the canvas alone or in a group.

A persona is a basis when exploring a new business model, a creative marketing campaign brief, or exploring marketing tactics and goals. All 3 require a target audience early in the process.

This exercise helps you to learn about your ideal customer — their challenges, their goals, their demographic traits, and so on — helps you set a strategy aimed at attracting the most valuable visitors, leads, and customers to your business.

Fill out personal information of the persona. This will help you identify your target customer.
