Understand your Buyer Persona better: the Goals and Challenges of a Head of Localization – Q&A Session

Q&A With an Expert: Understand your Buyer Persona better

About the Q&A Session

We all have our assumptions around what our buyer personas need. But are those assumptions correct?

A logical step to verify this is to go and interview our top customers. We can ask them questions as if we were a journalist and verify if what we think is right. We can dig deep and ask for the why of things as this will help to obtain real quotes from them - and objections - that we can then use in our marketing messages and sales conversations.

Easier said than done? We hear you! To make your lives easier, we have planned such a questions and answers session for you. 

The session will be held with Sasan Banava, former Head of Globalization at Uber and Localization Program Manager at Google.

Format: you ask YOUR questions

These are some of the things we thought of

  • What are the typical goals and challenges of a head of localization? 
  • How do you get informed about which LSP or technology to choose?
  • Who do you speak with, what do you read, what events do you attend? 
  •  How is it that the provider can help you? What type of messaging do you feel works?
  •  What are the best channels to be approached? 
  •  Do you have examples of a sales approach that worked for you? And that didn't? 
  • What are some counterintuitive sales techniques

And we look forward to hearing what YOUR questions will be for Sasan.
