1. The preparation

A successful blog should start with the target audience. Who will read it and for whom is it written? Interests, problems, desires and personality of the target group are valuable information for your blog. So you can put the reader at the center of the letter and help him or her in the most effective way.

This automatically leads to these readers wanting to come back. A good technique to define the target audience is the Buyer Personas technique.

Here, hypothetical cases are constructed and fed with data from surveys and market analyzes to get the most accurate picture of the target group.
