Former Organic CEO Mark Kingdon On the Power of Persona
In an increasingly complex world of demographic, psychographic and ethnographic research, it’s no longer safe to assume that companies actually know their customers. Harnessing the power of persona or a representative profile, which summarizes a key demographic target is a powerful means of figuring out the customer today. Mark Kingdon, formerly CEO of Organic, a digital marketing agency, spoke with Jennifer Jones at the Forrester Marketing Conference in Los Angeles in mid-April 2008 about personas and other key marketing trends today. Kingdon is now CEO of Second Life.
