Today, on #NationalLoveYourPetDay, we’re taking a unique approach to showcase the significance of personas by introducing you to our four-legged family members. Through the lens of our employees’ pets and the creation of pet personas, we’ll explore how understanding user behavior can drive positive change in employee and customer experiences.

Meet Some of Our Pet Companions

By crafting personas for these furry companions, we gain insights into their unique personalities, preferences, and needs. Here’s a few examples below:

Bailey—The Loving Protector Persona
Bailey’s distinctive, loving and protective nature is the GPS for a digital strategy. Imagine warm, protective vibes guiding the user experience. We’re talking personalized alerts or notifications that match her attention-seeking traits. For navigation, think ease of findability and enhanced search, reflecting her knack for clear communication. And, of course, a warm and friendly tone of voice to resonate with Bailey’s loving nature.

Comet—The Natural Born Leader Persona
Comet’s got a chatty vibe and a fierce independence. Want to keep him happy? Let him rule the roost. That means user interfaces that give a sense of control and customization, coupled with lively design elements to keep him hooked. Comet needs space to roam, so make sure your digital playground allows him to explore, discover, and navigate hassle-free. Toss in some rewards and incentives, and you’ve got Comet engaged and sticking around. We’ll continue to acknowledge his leadership vibes to craft an experience that keeps him in charge and satisfied.

Charlie—The Lazy Guard Dog Persona
Charlie, on the other paw, with his relaxed demeanor, represents users who appreciate tranquility and thoughtful interactions. Like his laid-back nature, Charlie’s persona inspires us to craft experiences emphasizing customization and a leisurely user journey.
