On this episode of Marketing Nerds, I was joined by Marla Johnson, the CEO of Aristotle. We had a great conversation about how to find and target your audience with content they actually want to interact with.  I really enjoyed talking with Marla, and she had a lot of great information and tools to share.

Here are few topics we talked about: shutterstock_228157618

  • The biggest misconceptions marketers have when they are trying to define their audience.
  • Why buyer or users personas are actually  useful.
  • How an increase in mobile usage has decreased user patience – and what that means for marketers.
  • How mobile apps are changing the way internet users find the data
