Finding a market in need involves these things:

  • Understanding who the ideal customer is for your product or service
  • Understanding where those people spend time and how they choose to spend their money
  • Understanding how to place educational content in front of those people to help them understand why you’re the best option for them.
  • Understand your market
  • Look at your competitors – how are they marketing to customers
  • Where customers are spending their time and what their spending habits are

2. Effective Marketing Ways to Improve Communication With Your Customer

Marketing is a process of communication more than anything. Communication is about understanding each other’s point of view, not telling the other party why you’re right. It’s about communicating with your customers to ask what they want. It’s about learning about how you can serve them better.

  • Find ways to best communicate with them

o Offer a lead magnet, ask for direct feedback on that lead magnet, and ask them how they would ideally see their problems solved

o Utilize both means of communication as a company, tell them about what you offer as well as asking for their input.

  • Utilize current channels of communication that you have to gain valuable insight and information about your customers
  • Define and understand your audience
  • Tell a story
  • Focus your message
  • Create a dialogue – conversation with your audience
