Pro Tip: Nothing Beats Talking to Real Customers

In order to truly generate a robust buyer persona, inbound marketing really benefits from face-to-face customer interaction.  You should, of course, do as much as you can online. But because so much of what is communicated is non-verbal, up to 80% of all the value in the Buyer Persona development process is in having real life interactions with customers, both happy and unhappy ones.  

Observe What Job is to Be Done

It is not always easy for a customer to explain why they do something.  The Job To Be Done or JTBD approach requires deep research.  That's why it is as much art as science when conducting user interviews.
