When it comes to creating a dashboard that truly resonates with your audience, there are a couple of critical questions you need to ask yourself.
Two essential questions
First and foremost, you need to identify who will be using the dashboard. Are you creating it for your sales team, your marketing department, or perhaps your executive team? Knowing the answer to this question is crucial because it will help you tailor the dashboard to meet their specific needs. The second question you must consider is what information your audience wants to see on the dashboard. Are they interested in sales metrics, website analytics, or perhaps customer satisfaction scores? Understanding what data is most important to your users is essential for crafting a dashboard that delivers real value.
Name your dashboard like a movie
Once you have clarity on who will use the dashboard and what information they need, it's time to start thinking about the name. Think of your dashboard name like a blockbuster movie – it needs to be catchy and memorable. For example, if you have seven key metrics that your sales team relies on, you could name it something like 'Seven Metrics to Make Selling Success.'
Find the Hero Card
But here's the secret sauce: identify one as the superstar out of those seven metrics. This key metric will be front and center, taking the spotlight as your Hero Dashboard. By giving it the attention it deserves, you highlight its significance and ensure it remains at the top of everyone's mind. Sounds intriguing, right?
