Who is your Ideal Target Market?

Target Market Customer

The first question we ask our new clients is: “Who is your Target market?” sometimes they enthusiastically reply, “Everyone can use our product!” (…groan…)

Please be advised that the general public is NOT your target market!

You must narrow down your target market to the group of people most likely to buy your product or service because even though a random person might come along and buy your product when you are spending money on a direct marketing list, you must narrow it precisely to your target market so that you can see a better return on your investment (ROI). This way, you will see the BEST results and make more money!

The following plan will help you think about your target market or provide food for thought to discuss with your list broker.
