Finding the right target audience for your brand can be a challenge. Setting your target too narrow may mean you miss out on potential leads. On the other hand, setting them too wide can also be problematic.
How do you find the right target for your brand? To do this, it is essential to understand the following:
1. Know your existing customers and their purchase journey. It is important to understand who your customers are and their needs. How your existing customers purchase, how often, and by what means are essential to understanding your operating base. Depending on your business type, you can utilize online tools to gather some of this data via website traffic tools and social media insights to determine how people reach your business, etc.
2. Is there a problem that needs solving? Find out if there is a problem that needs to be solved. For example, is there a specific area that needs attention or a new market you would like to explore? What is working, and what needs to be fixed in your current campaigns?
3. Think about your competitors, their customers, and how they purchase. Consider the competition and who their customers are, then see how this fits into your current base. Who are their customers, and how do they purchase? Is this an area your business is not currently pursuing and an area for potential?
4. Form a target journey and a goal to reach. Once you evaluate these three bullet points, reaching this audience is another important step.
