  • Lots right!
  • But social media is great! Not taking advantage
  • Marketing, programmingetcetc what do we do, what don’t we do? Go over the research again!
  • Focus on the people and what we found out. What do they want? What do they like? Incredible mix of ages and backgrounds – but how do they behave???? Create bespoke audience segmentation model
  • All departments – not just marketing!! Buy in. Understanding of why. Getting people to think collectively. Sharing knowledge.
  • Putting ourselves in their shoes. Each ‘persona’ what are they looking for? What will they be interested in? What are the barriers? Physically walking through it + recording it.
