YOU Are Not Your Customer. Are You Marketing As If You Are?

You are not your customer.


Are you marketing as if you are?


Here are a few red flags🚩:


-Focusing on features rather than benefits, solutions, and outcomes

-Overuse of technical terms that might confuse the customer

-Using YOUR language instead of the customers

-Lack of clear differentiation from your competitors

-Stressing how great you are rather than how you can help


If some of these issues show up in your marketing, it’s time to take action.


Begin by developing a better understanding of your ideal customers.


Talk to them, listen to them, and learn from them.


Start by answering these questions:


▶️ What problem is your customer seeking to solve?


▶️ What are their biggest challenges and frustrations?


▶️ What’s the desired outcome your customer is seeking?


▶️ What motivates or triggers your customer to take action?


▶️ Why do they choose YOU over other options?


▶️ What do your customers think and feel about your brand?


▶️ What’s important to them (interests, beliefs, values)?


Now, use what you've learned to better align your marketing with the customers you seek to attract and serve.🎯
