Course overview.

Personas have the
power to make or break not just your product marketing efforts, but that of your sales, marketing, product, engineering and customer success counterparts, too. 

Throughout this course, we’ll be exploring quite literally every element of the persona process. From types of personas, use cases to persona pre-work, interview guides to data consolidation, company-wide communication plans to reviewals, you name it, this course has got it.

By the end of this course, you’ll know the different types of personas (user, buyer, brand…), how many personas you should have, what having personas means for your company, how to create or build a persona, and much more.

"It’s essential for product marketing to own persona development - knowing personas and their pain points drives everything from targeted messaging to tailored sales enablement and understanding the voice of the customer. This course is essential for any product marketer creating personas for the first time, as well as for those refreshing and validating existing personas as the course contains a blend of theory, practical advice and best practice tips."

Q: How long will it take me to complete the course?

A: It depends how quick you work your way through alllll the materials. The course itself comprises 5 hours of content in which you’ll be required to complete exams on. On top of that, you’ll be given access to 2 hours of bonus footage and although these aren’t mandatory, we’d definitely recommend giving them a watch! 

Finally, you’ll also be given the option to complete five coursework tasks as you go - these aren’t mandatory either but they’re well worth getting stuck into, to help you put everything you’ve learned into practice and walk away with a pack of actionable takeaways to go and apply right away. 

Q: What happens once I’ve completed the course?

A: A couple of things. Providing you’ve passed all the exams, you’ll be issued your certificate pretty much on the spot. You’ll also be given entire access to all the content for life, so if you wanna brush up on anything down the line, you’ll be able to refer back to every video, template, and coursework task whenever you want. 

Q: Will I be able to ask questions?

A: You sure will. Within every section, there’ll be an area to ask questions as you go, as well as see the questions answers other students have asked and received.
