How to Identify Buyer Personas with Third Party Data

How to Identify Buyer Personas with Third Party Data

Marketers, put yourself in the shoes of a customer. What do they want? They want personalized experiences, and in order to do so, you need to know who your customers are.

How will marketers be able to understand their customers? Accurate and real-time third-party data is the golden ticket.

Now put yourself back into a marketers shoes. How much data do you have on your customers? How much data don’t you have? By filling in the missing pieces of your customer data with items such as phone numbers, addresses, or other details, you have the opportunity to identify new information about the people in your email data.

Now that you gain insights on your customers, the next step in the process is identifying your buyer personas. Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Who are your customers?

Having a clear layout of who your customers are, helps build better messaging and more effective targeting. Brands struggle to fill in the missing pieces of their customer puzzles, so adding third-party data can help fill in the puzzle and help make your buyer persona stronger than ever.

     2. Where are your customers finding you?

Where are your customers finding you, is the big question. Why? With this information, you can come up with a strong marketing strategy. Are your customers coming to your website directly? If so that means they’ve heard from you through word of mouth or if you’re using google ad words, maybe they saw you through an advertisement.

However your customers are finding you, it’s a best practice to keep track of these stats to better your marketing strategy.

    3. How are your customers reacting to your content strategy?

Are your customers finding you through social media? If so which content are they clicking on? How long are they staying on your website? What pages are they viewing? What forms are they filling out? These answers are good to know, why? You need to know what type of content is triggering your buyers and where are you promoting it in order to continue to build your marketing strategy. 

   4. How do your customers react to your email marketing?

What are your buyers’ habits like with your email marketing? Are your customers opening your emails in the early mornings, lunchtime or late at night? You need to understand what time of the day it’s best to send your emails, also how short or long will they be? That’s based on when and where they are reading your emails? In between meetings? Or on their long commute on the bus to work? These are the answers you need to find out.
