    The Importance of Customer Avatars

    Customers and clients are so much more than demographics they are actually people, not freaking data. So what do we need to do when it comes to understanding how to market them? We need to understand who they are based on the concepts learned in the previous video.

     To develop our core customer base we need to create customer avatars which can be downloaded here.

    A customer avatar is the collection of information pertaining to the general basis of who a person is in relation to your brand. When building avatars it is important to ask questions about this person beyond where they live and how much money they make. What relationship do they have to you or your product?
