    Hi,

    I’ve trying to add a persona page onto my website but don’t know what to name the title/navigation.
    I don’t want to name it Persona as most people won’t even know what it means, read somewhere that an average reading age for adults is 9 years old here in the UK.

    Basically a Adult Shop and Striaght, LGBT, Fetish persona’s. (don’t know if I should name it Straight) but would like some help.

    thanks

    1. Chris Mears says:

      I don’t think you have quite got the gist of what a persona is

      1. Mayur says:

        I know what a persona is, but yes you’re right i don’t. I have had a UX designer (more than 4months ago) create these personas for me, and he advised I should create seperate pages for each person so that when I get a customer he can relate to that persona and see what product would be best for him.

        If I got it wrong, then how would you do this? Don’t we need some kind of direction for a customer who is new to the site to make him feel welcome and also help him narrow down the products so he doesn’t wonder through countless pages?

    Great post Chris. The comparison between a highly conceptual artifact vs. a text-based one really helped me out

  81. Johan Emerson Grobler says:

    Hello Chris,

    Great text on a very exciting discipline – user journeys.

    Do you have a higher resolution version of the diagram entitles “A simple text based journey can be sufficient for some audiences”

    Keep well
    Johan Grobler

      Hi Johan,
      Thanks for your comment. I will see if I can dig this out for you and let you know.
      Thanks
