Buyer Personas

  • About This Document

  • This document describes the personas that are involved in purchasing and using your products. A persona is a typical character that represents your target customer. A persona falls into one or more of the following roles in the buying process:

  • Initiator – the person who decides to start the buying process.

  • Champion – the person who tries to convince others they need the product – an internal salesperson.

  • Influencer – a trusted advisor whose opinions carry great weight with other people in the process.

  • Decider – the person who makes the final decision to purchase.

  • Buyer – the person who is going to write you the check.

  • User – the person who uses your product, whether he had a say in the buying process or not.

  • Fill out the template below for each persona that you encounter – either directly or indirectly – when selling your product or service. You don’t have to do them all – rather, focus on those who are most important. And if you find multiple separate personas for a given role (e.g., there are different types of influencers), fill out each personas separately.

  • Remember: When you create a persona, put yourself in the shoes of your customer. Define the persona from their perspective – not from yours (the seller’s). The more representative you can make your personas of the people you actually encounter, the easier it will be to build a compelling offer and a sustainable sales process.
