Using content marketing to attract the right audience. Liz O’Donnell shares her top tips and explains why businesses must start with naming their customer.

Liz O’Donnell is the general manager of Double Forte, a PR and digital marketing firm. She is also the author of Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman, a book that picks up where other books leave off – understanding the impact women’s personal lives have on their careers and the ways business can support working women.

Liz is also the co-founder of SheStarts, which supports the growing pipeline of women founders in Boston through networking, coaching and events.


Liz has 25 first cousins.

Using content marketing to attract the right audience

  1. Start with buyer persona: Find out who your customer is at work and who they are at home. Understand their whole life. Name your customer.
  2. Say something different: don’t be trite. Be unique. Make your message fresh, memorable. Make it something that the consumer will only get from your brand.
  3. Hustle: be strategic, don’t over-perfect, publish.
  4. Frequency and consistency: you must deliver regularly and consistently. Build trust.
