What are types of customer profiles?
There are two types of customer profiles: ICPs and Personas.
ICPs are based on your current customers’ demographics and other defining characteristics, such as values, needs, and triggers for making the decision to purchase. Basically any real data that will help identify similar potential customers.
Personas are imaginary buyers based on segmentation data. Building out detailed personas allows businesses to create buyer journeys for reaching potential customers at ideal touch points.
Here’s more on how to use personas for optimal marketing success.
