Develop a customer persona to help you build deep empathy with your customer.
Demographics used to be a marketer’s only tool, but it's insufficient for early-stage customer discovery, and almost useless for designing user experience. Now we use customer personas to generate an intense focus on early adopters and empathy with end users. In this workshop, we learn how to identify early customers through segmentation and customer personas.
