What are the first steps you must take when you begin marketing ?
Ok, so you’ve identified your ideal client profile as you begin marketing. The question you now have to ask yourself is, “Have I chosen a viable target audience?” meaning, is it actually worthwhile to market to these people?
You can have all the focus, drive, and good intentions to market to a group of people, but if they’re not easily reached in large numbers and inexpensively, if they don’t congregate often or they’re too difficult to locate, it’s going to make your The Leveraged Business attempts much more difficult as you begin marketing. And that’s OK, I’ve been there too, and I can now tell you exactly how to proceed. Step by step.
Here are some questions to ask yourself when you begin marketing (be a hard grader):
- Can you find them easily?
- Is there a “list” of these people somewhere – an association of them, support groups, alliances, for example?
- Are there enough of them? Even if your target audience is small in the grand scheme of the population, there still needs to be a massive number of these people for you to stay in business.
- Do they have a problem worth solving?
- Does this problem hurt enough?
- Do they have the ability to pay for your services?
Once you’ve gotten clear on a target audience or a niche, it’s important to ask yourself the hard questions listed above. Take out a sheet of paper and really answer these. If the answers are repeatedly “no,” then consider looking for another niche. It’ll make the whole The Leveraged Business process much easier in the long run as you begin marketing.
If you’re not sure where to begin at all, that’s alright. We have a whole program made for you, where I teach you how to Leverage Your Business with seven activators I found were the most efficient. Sounds interesting ? Book your free strategy session here.
