    • KNOW THEIR BASIC DEMOGRAPHICS1 Demographics are becoming gradually less important than in the past but they still can be a source of vital information and can help you create your archetype persona once you combine them with psychographics. Find out about age, sex, average income, marital status and so on. Some of those things might not be relevant but it is always best to confront the research need with your topic of presentation. MY TIP Choose what demographics are relevant when it comes to your presentation CLICK TO TWEET
    • KNOW WHAT THEY CARE ABOUT2 Demographics are one thing, psychographics are quite the other. Combined together they help you view realistic image of your persona. Psychographics are based on what your audience cares about (ex. health, life-work balance, environment or partying hard), how they choose to spend their free time, what they value in life and in people. Art of presentation is the art of telling stories. Your stories will be better if they resonate with what your audience cares about. MY TIP Think of your audience key values and group them around topics (family, lifestyle, spirituality). CLICK TO TWEETMY TIP
    • KNOW WHAT THEY ASPIRE TO3 People love to dream. They also all aspire to something. It can be better looks, better job, better health or a better world. The things they aspire to is the consequence of what they care about and value in life. By showing them elements they aspire to in your story you build a strong link that is based on emotions (that’s good), rather than on rational reasons (important, but less when it comes to winning their heart). MY TIP Pinterest is great for insights into what people aspire to. Use it in your research. CLICK TO TWEETMY TIP
    • KNOW THEIR CULTURE AND BACKGROUND4 MY TIP You can simplify your communication and make it more effective by taking it to the next level with symbols and metaphors. Those are rooted in culture and background. When doing your research make sure to learn as much as you can about specific stories, legends, heroes and symbols you can use in your presentation – both verbally and visually. Don’t let stereotypes fool you. Get to know the culture your audience is rooted in. CLICK TO TWEETMY TIP
    • KNOW THEIR SYMBOLS AND ICONS5 MY TIP Symbols and icons are rooted in all aspects of culture. Those can include art, literature, legends, religion and customs. Learn the visual representation of certain symbols and find out which symbols support your narrative and which weaken it or worse jeopardise it. Use most commonly known one references – you’ll avoid the confusion and lack of understanding. Use thenounproject.com to research visual representation of most words out there. CLICK TO TWEETMY TIP
