Marketers are learning that there’s minimal value in fictional buyer personas built from internal knowledge or interviews with a few customers. In this session, Adele Revella, the career sales and marketing leader who literally wrote the book on buyer personas, will show you how to see deep inside the actual customers’ buying experience to understand your real buyer personas.


You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify how many personas you really need
  • Understand your buyer’s questions and concerns at each stage of their journey
  • Build the value messages and stories that motivate action
  • Prepare sales to engage with each type of influencer
  • Develop a practical and sustainable content strategy
