So here’s the thing. While today’s buyer personas generally aren’t as useful as most of us would like to believe, they are a good starting point.
I’m not advocating that we get rid of buyer personas, but rather that we rethink our approach to them.

I’m talking about understanding the various triggers that cause people not only to engage with your company, but also to make a purchase.
Predictive is the death of Personas.
