You need to find your ideal customers. You will want to start by identifying what they need and want, then craft a custom message that speaks to them.
The Benefits of finding your ideal customers
- Knowing who your ideal customer is allows you to tailor your products and services to their specific needs.
- Being able to identify your ideal customer can make it easier to find potential customers who may be interested in what you offer.
- When someone already has an interest in what you're offering, they are more likely to turn into paying customers.
- Customers who are already interested in what you're selling are likely to be more satisfied with their purchase.
- Finding your ideal customer can help you save time and resources by focusing on the most profitable opportunities for your business.
Who is your ideal customer?
Your ideal customer is someone who is interested in the type of products and services you sell and are willing to pay your asking price. They should also be someone who is likely to tell their friends about your product.
For example, if you're a wedding photographer, your ideal customer might be someone in your local area who is getting married in the near future. She is interested in your specific style of photography, and is willing to pay your rates.
Another good example is, if you're a make goats mild soap, your ideal customer might be a 25-35 year old mom who has a child with eczema, that needs 100% organic soap made with essential oils, and is happy to pay a little extra for monthly delivery.
There are a few key questions you should ask when trying to identify your ideal customer:
- What needs does your product or service address?
- What type of person is most likely to have those needs?
- What are the demographics of your ideal customer?
Your ideal customer needs to be specific.
If you want to attract the right customer, you need to be specific about who they are. The more specific you are, the easier it will be to find them and market to them.
When you know who your ideal customer is, you can start making a marketing plan that will reach them where they are.
If you are trying to find more customers for your cake decorating business, just targeting the “Busy moms who don't have time to bake” is not specific enough. You would have to compete with every bakery in your area. To make sales, you would have to have the most delicious cakes in your community or the lowest price. However, if you focused on health-conscious moms of boys by selling yummy gluten-free superhero cupcakes. Your product would literally sell itself!

When you have a good grasp of these things, you can start marketing directly to them.
