01. Creating a target persona:

For first, do you remember the famous line from F.R.I.E.N.D.S - “You don’t own a TV? What’s all your furniture pointed at?”

Creating a target persona

Similarly in inbound marketing, when you don’t have a list of target persona, then you probably don’t know where is all of your content targeted to? Target persona is a list of your ideal prospects and customers that you’re trying to pitch-in, or in the inbound language, you are trying to attract. It’s who your entire inbound strategies, especially, lead generation is targeted towards.

And, no it doesn’t mean the target audience, the target persona goes beyond psychographics, and demographics, it focuses more on the brand’s customers’ and prospects’ needs, buying process, and their pain points. 

If you engage them, provide them solutions, you are surely going to get most leads!

So, how to create a target persona? Here’s is how you can do it -

  • Review Facebook Insights: 

To create a target persona, you have to understand the demographic behind it. Besides, age, gender, and location, you have to find out how your current market looks like. For this, we have Facebook insights! Go to your Facebook page insights, and then click on the fans column!

  • Phone interviews with recent or past customers are also accurate. Dig deeper and ask questions. 

02. Creative content:

It is the most important part of inbound marketing! The quality of content you put up will drive benefits. Don’t focus just on your brand, your service, or your product, focus more on the pain points of the customer or audience, solve their issues.

Ask and answer questions on social media

Email marketing and organic ranking is the best source for conversions but it depends upon social for engagement rate. It is the most powerful way to be close to your audience, and enhance your brand presence.

05. Pick keywords and highlight them:

Search engine optimization is a super-hard, and time-consuming method? Do you believe this? Then, you are certainly wrong. SEO is the process of optimizing your website content, and other content and structure for search in order to rank on the SERPs. It is a crucial part of your inbound marketing strategy because if you can’t be found by your audience on SERPs, then you’re not going to get leads.

Pick keywords and highlight

One of the most important features of search engine optimization is keywords! The power of keywords can take you to the top and can even bring you down. If you want to successfully gain traffic for relevant keywords, you have to use those ‘selected keywords’ on your site everywhere. But don’t over-stuff them. 

Gain the first-position for the main terms, for instance, ‘Digital marketing institute’.  Simply improve the raking of the head terms.
