    in Business

    With the current state of the economy, having a well-defined target market is more important than ever. No one can afford to target everyone.

    Small businesses can effectively compete with large companies by targeting a niche market.

    Many businesses say they target "anyone interested in my services." Some may say they target small business owners, homeowners, or stay-at-home moms. All of these targets are too general.

    To build a solid foundation for your business, you must first identify your typical customer and tailor your marketing pitch accordingly.

    "Whom shall we serve? Declaring your target market" Jory Fisher & Julie Fleming

    in Entrepreneur

    It’s the question every entrepreneur faces right after deciding what kind of business to launch: whom shall I serve? Good marketing requires specificity so that your ideal client will realize you’re speaking to her or him. But it can be a challenging process to identify specifically the audience you want to serve, and even more difficult to create an avatar that encapsulates your ideal client. Whether it’s because of your own lack of clarity or fear about getting too specific, you may hesitate to draw a narrow client niche. Join Jory and Julie to learn why a narrow target audience description is actually critical to business success, what you should consider in creating that description and a client avatar, and how frequently you should revisit your audience definition. We’ll share our mistakes and revelations as well as why we continue to revisit target market, and we’ll also explore the difference between the audience you serve and the audience to whom you market.

    Target Market Segmentation

    in Entrepreneur

    It is extremely important that an entrepreneur create a customer profile so the target market of the business is clearly defined. The target market is formulated by an entrepreneur when starting a new business or introducing a new product into the marketplace. The marketing plan section of the business plan contains detailed information concerning the target market. A customer profile is created by selecting demographic and psychographic characteristics that reflect a customer who will most likely purchase the product or service. The target market is then continually monitored and analyzed for significant changes so the product or service can be altered if necessary. That is our focus on this edition of, "The Strategist."
