An MSP business will have differing personas to whom it caters over the course of its operation. This is due both to the growth of tech business and the transition of technology itself. A startup becomes a corporation and must transition through multiple pivots in the fullness of time. What this means is that the target markets you seek will likely transition, as well.
In order to have continuously successful marketing outreach, you need to know to whom you’re reaching. This requires some sort of buyer persona, if only cognitively. But there are advantages to defining such personas directly. Following, three core tiers of effective buyer persona utility will be briefly explored.
1. Define Personas Appropriately
An MSP business needs to know who is buying. Look at existing clients and additionally know who you would ideally convert if you could. Market to both categories of client and ensure you don’t leave anyone out. You need to know who can benefit from your services, and speak to them.
2. Incorporate Personas Like a Lens Through Which You Design Content
Once you know which buyer personas best define outreach, your next step will be to design your marketing around those personas. Think of the persona a bit like a lens through which a photo is taken. A tinted lens produces a different picture. Different personas should have different content designed for them.
3. Continuously Develop Personas: Outsourcing for Assistance
Your personas will transition as your MSP comes into itself. Working with an SEO group which serves MSPs in terms of marketing outreach can be key in helping you keep pace with forward service transitions.
When an MSP business continuously develops buyer personas, outsources appropriately, uses personas to define content, and carefully determines which personas are most relevant, that MSP is more likely to resonate with its target demographic.
