How to Create a Reader Avatar for Your Blog

ProBlogger

For several years, I’ve been using Reader Avatars (also called Reader Profiles or Personas) on my blogs – and I’ve found them very effective and helpful. To create your first reader avatar, you’ll need to spend some time thinking and writing about a type of reader that you’re either attempting to reach or who is already reading your blog. We’ve created a template you can use to help you do this, and I’ll be sharing some examples of my own reader avatars throughout this post.)
