Instant Personas Provide Insights for Lead Generation

A direct to consumer (DTC) business that sold fractional ownership of timeshares used the boodleAI platform to generate Personas from existing customers.  Using these Personas, the business developed an Ideal Customer Profile that it then used to purchase online ads and additional leads.

The Challenge

This DTC business had hundreds of past and current customers for its high-end, high-margin product.  The company wanted to purchase online ads and lead lists that targeted its ideal customers, but did not have a data-driven Ideal Customer Profile.

Use of Guidon by boodleAI

Using boodleAI's platform, the business uploaded its database of current and past customers as a contact list, which automatically generated a Persona of those customers.  

The Results

The business used the Persona generated by Guidon to create an Ideal Customer Profile, which was then used to buy targeted online ads and additional leads.
