Identify Your Target Audience!

People play a major part in the success of your brand. The audience you broadcast your information to is very important. You need to focus on the people who will find your content the most interesting and relevant. That’s why you need to focus on narrowing down your aim to a targeted group of people in your audience.


It doesn’t make sense trying to market to each and every individual in the worldwide audience, because you will simply end up wasting a lot of time, energy and resources. You need to focus on people who are most likely to be interested in what you are trying to offer. How do you do that? You do that by following these guidelines we’ve put together for you:


Check with your business plan:

-          Take the time to analyze the products and service you offer and see how they resolve a certain need that your customer has. Then, figure out how you are different or special as compared to the competition. Think on a broad basis of who would be interested in what you’re offering.

-          “Figure out your selling point” and all the things that you need to know about your customers so that you can reach them.


Start your research:

-          Look at existing sources that can help you figure out more about “your industry, the market, your competition, and the broad potential customer you have already identified.”

-          You can do your own (primary) research to find out more about your industry, but you might find that much more expensive to do.


Develop a profile for your customers:

-          This is an in-depth description of your customer. It includes demographic information (age, gender, location, marital status, etc.) and psychographic information (psychology, interests, values, hobbies, lifestyle, etc.)


Where are they?

-          Find out where your audience is. Look for the websites that they visit and the social networks they are on the most. Find out if they are constantly using their email and various apps. With this information you would know where your audience hangs out the most and you’ll be easier able to find them and bring your content to them.


Keep an eye on your target audience:

-          Don’t stop at just identifying your audience. Keep researching to see how your target audience is evolving, what’s trending and what your competitors are up to. That way, you’ll be able to alter your methods and content to make them more effective for your marketing campaign.
