Tips for making
better data-driven
personas.
Multiple sources
keep things in
balance.
Internal sources
can be stake
holders, web
analytics, and
customer
support.
External sources
can be customers
and someone you
know.
Basing them on
someone you
know keeps them
grounded and
more realistic.
Only build what
you need.
Getting it all

is tricky.
Not bad. But
there’s a better
way.
