User Personas: It's Not About You. It's About Them.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


A lot of organizations start a website re-do by looking at what they want to say and what’s important to them. But if your audience doesn’t come first, results may not be what you want. User Personas enable you to go beyond general audience segmentation to define your users’ online behaviors and anticipate needs and expectations. They'll drive your content strategy. Your user experience. And a road map to measure the effectiveness of your overall strategy. All so that the experience you're creating really matches not just the needs of your organization, but of the people you're hoping to support you. 

Join us in a conversation on what is a persona, the process to building one, and why they are an important investment to help define your audience and a great user experience online. Attendees will learn the steps to effectively building a persona and how to define specific user scenarios for an optimal experience on your website.
