Why should you take part?

Simple answer? Why not?

Getting Persona Certified will not only help you create, build, and deliver awesome personas, you’ll also help your colleagues by streamlining the process - it’s the ideal way to enhance standards and facilitate success.

Not entirely sure when and where personas should be used? No drama. By the time you finish the course (and pick up your awesome certification 😎), you’ll be in the perfect position to provide crystal clear use cases to key stakeholders.


Who’s built the course?

It’s built by us, alongside product marketers from companies like G2, IBM, and Freshworks (to name a few 😉). Persona Certified offers a thorough insight into the key components needed to elevate the standards of both you, your product, and your colleagues - the ideal way to help you perfect your personas.

It’s the bee’s-knees. The business. The real deal.


Who’s been there, done it, and got the persona t-shirt?

Think we’re just blowing our own trumpet? Igor Kranjcec, Product Marketing Lead at Lemax, is now Persona Certified, and he’s been singing from the rooftops, ever since. 🎉

“One word. WOW!!!! And I mean WOW! I wish I had this when I built personas the first and second time. It would shorten the cycle of making them by weeks. Months.”

A pretty satisfied PMM, if we may say so. 😏 After all, not only do PMMs get an official persona certification if they pass their exams, they also gain lifetime access to real-life case studies and over 2-hours of bonus footage featuring the likes of IBM. 🔥

So, what can you expect from the course?

A word from the experts

Still in two minds as to whether personas are really that important?

Personas are the glue that holds so many pieces of the PMM puzzle together, as Louise Dunne, Product Marketing Manager at Linnworks will testify.

"It’s essential for product marketing to own persona development - knowing personas and their pain points drives everything from targeted messaging to tailored sales enablement and understanding the voice of the customer. This course is essential for any product marketer creating personas for the first time, as well as for those refreshing and validating existing personas as the course contains a blend of theory, practical advice and best practice tips."

Told you so. 🤷‍♂️

So, without further ado, let’s catapult your personas to the next level. 🚀
