Tips (listen to episode for more information & detail):

  • Define the persona you are focusing on
  • What are their pain points?
  • How can you help – keep in mind the principle of WIIFM (what’s in it for me?) from the eyes of your consumer
  • Create an offer your persona is likely to consumer (e.g. a podcast or vlog may not be the best medium for targeting residents of a nursing home)
  • Craft a personal, straight to the point message

Taking into account these tips, reverse engineering example 2, it could go something like this:
