I want that! Or do they? At the every beginning of starting a business or funnel you need to know who you are reaching. Otherwise you are blasting into the ether.
Hoping someone is going to say, I want that.!!
Once you know who they are and what makes them tic, you have a match and they want to hear what you have to say. And can solve their problems.
If you don’t know what makes your customers tick, you’ll discover that people will expect you to deliver a product or service that you don’t want to do, aren’t able to do, your relationships won’t be successful and you’ll find lots of challenges within that relationship.
Simply, because it’s not a match, it’s because you and the other person just don’t tick.
I want that! Or do they?
When I sat down and wrote out my Ideal Client Profile for the kind of customers I wanted to work with– everything started to move along quickly. I first started with a Friend Circle – simply because I really needed and wanted more friends to support me while I was going through being burnt-out from a contract that was ending.
This is what I came up with for my Friend Circle:
“My friends are comfortable like a supportive bra. We cherish each other by encouraging, advocating, endorsing our feelings and beliefs.” (The guys may not appreciate this – but then they can just figure out what works for them.)
One of my participants got an ahh, when she wrote out her profile of her Ideal customer. Even though there were many entrepreneurs in the group, everyone had their own targeted audience and wanted different kinds of customers as together they wrote out their plans. Within their own targeted audience they knew what made their customers tick.
For example Michelle’s prospective customers wanted an opportunity to buy their own business within a structure, like what a Franchise offers. Michelle was able to narrow it down to the prospects profile and only accepted who met her profile or matched her client profile.
Linda wanted to be famous for Equine Photography, once she wrote out what she was willing to offer and provide she only worked with the perfect people for her.
