Everything in business starts with understanding your perfect customer. Yawn…how many times have you heard this? Many times, I know. Because it’s THAT important.
And it’s hella frustrating as a business owner because as soon as you think you figured it out – oh that’s right, it’s HER I’m going after – it changes.
And you have to start over understanding a NEW ideal customer. I swear my team and I do a new Buyer Persona exercise every 3 months.
But here’s the thing – you lose track of your ideal customer and you risk losing your business.
Most entrepreneurs get excited about and want to talk incessantly about how cool their product is.
Look what the product can do! Look how cool and useful it is! Check out this amazing thing I created. Who wants to buy it?
That’s typically what we do – especially creatives. (And really, aren’t all entrepreneurs creatives) We have an itch we need to scratch so we create a business around it.
We 1) create something to sell, and 2) go look for people to buy it.
This episode walks you through deciding who you actually want to serve (yes, you get to choose) and creating a product around THEM and their wants & desires.
Everything in business starts with the WHO. Who is your ideal customer and how do you attract them?
The WHO is more important than the What, the Why, the How, the When — all the other stuff.
