Are you spraying mud at the wall to see what sticks?

If you’ve ever had the fun task of throwing mud at a wall, then you know exactly how much of mess you can make.

And yet, this is how most small business owners go about their marketing. The scattergun approach – spray-and-praying – flip flopping from one tactic to another … it’s not surprising in this digital world you work in now because you’ve got so many options to take and online tools to try out.

If you want to get better results from your marketing, spend less time and money doing it and feel more confident going out there to promote yourself, then the easiest and simplest place to start is with your WHO.

If you can get really clear on exactly WHO you want to attract, you can turn your mud flinging into a strategic, laser focused marketing process where prospects come to you.

But let’s be honest with each other.

Spending time on identifying exactly who you want to target your marketing at, isn’t as sexy as learning about Facebook ads.

Nor does it sound as exciting as creating your first online product or deciding on the branding for your new website.

Client profiling is one the least favoured projects to take on because most entrepreneurial business owners like you, just want to get on with it .. don’t you?

 

So what’s the answer?

Even though client profiling can be perceived as one of those boring marketing exercises. It’s like the job of stripping back and prepping walls before hanging the beautiful wallpaper you’ve just bought. The wallpaper looks amazing on the roll … but if the walls aren’t stripped and prepped properly you’ll end up with a DIY disaster on your hands.

So like your wallpapering, you need to get really clear on exactly who you are targeting first before you start marketing because your client profile will give you:

  1. The ability to create compelling marketing copy that gets you heard (even in crowded marketplaces)
  2. Exactly where your clients hang out so you use the right social media sites, advertising platforms and events in your marketing
  3. The confidence that you are creating the right offers and products that your clients want to buy

Creating your client avatar allows you to stop the sell-sell-sell pitch and create a path for prospects to come to you.

For example … imagine receiving an email from someone who writes …

I can’t believe what I read on your website – it’s almost as if you’re reading my mind. Can I set up a time to speak with you?

This can happen time and time again … when you’ve created Your Best Client avatar.

Introducing “Your Best Client”

Your Best Client is a simple 5 step process that breaks down the steps to identifying and then emotionally connecting with your ideal client so that you can easily write compelling copy for your website, emails and sales pages, create desirable offers and make marketing easier.

You will be able to put a stop to your struggles in writing an email or sales copy or a headline for a leaflet.

And if you’ve ever struggled to find your niche or feel that you want to spread your net as wide and far as possible, you’ll love this simple process to follow.

It can take you as little as a couple of hours to complete, whilst giving you a stack of resources if you want to spend more time and go into more detail.

And once you’ve gone through the process, you’ll discover that working on your Best Client avatar, is time well invested!

Save hours of wasted marketing time

Without working on your client avatar, all that money you’ve spent will go to waste as the bumps and holes beneath show through when the sun shines through the windows.

Go out and spend your time, money and energy creating leaflets, websites and setting up Facebook pages before you do the critical client avatar prep work … well, yes … all those bumps and holes show through as frustrated months where you flip flop from one marketing activity to the next, going nowhere fast.

If you don’t get clear on your WHO … then your marketing won’t work!

Karen's Your Best Client course was a revelation to me. I realised I'd been emailing and tweeting for ages without a crystal clear picture of exactly who I was talking to. The bit in the course where it really fell into place for me, was towards the end when Karen encouraged me to write my avatar up as a story - so much more user friendly than my previous efforts. Now my communications are really effective because they're using the scenarios and words my potential clients are already familiar with. Ginny Carter

The best thing about working through the client avatar process is it made me think, not just about who my market is, but what I am offering. I used to suffer the classic therapist approach of "I help people with ..." Knowing who I most like working with, then asking what are their issues and that I can help them resolve brings into much sharper focus where I want to be. The shotgun approach has been replaced with a much more focused 'sniper' approach. It means my marketing becomes not only easier, but I don't waste time and energy.
