Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
To really connect with your reader, you need to speak their language. You should also know everything you can about them, including their age, sex, income, demographics – the basics of a standard customer profile. In addition to your customer profile, you also want to know what your reader worries about, what they look forward to, and what they most want from your service or product. While you’ve probably heard this before, it’s time to pay attention to how your reader describes their needs, wants, concerns, and to take a closer look at the language these customers use so you can communicate using the same words and phrases.
