Rekindling former business relationships

This blog was inspired by a recent newsletter from a business colleague discussing how business owners and their employees have been ‘missing in the market’ over the past three years.

They’ve neglected their business networks, stopped going to client, networking or industry events or work from home so think ‘relationship building’ is something they don’t need to do. But while they’ve been missing in action, their referrals have dried up or worse, have gone to other businesses who have continued to build their professional networks.

This got us thinking about how to rekindle former business relationships and here it is.

Crafting Your Ideal Client Persona: The Key to Effective Marketing

Join us in exploring the Science of Marketing series! Our goal is to demystify the marketing landscape, equipping you with the skills to formulate strategic plans and foster the marketing momentum crucial for achieving success.

Successful marketing starts with clearly identifying who your ideal clients are and what makes them tick. Many business owners have trouble doing this. That is the focus of this blog.

Most businesses don’t take the time to create their ideal client and end up wasting a lot of money targeting the wrong audience with their marketing. Remember, while it may seem counter-intuitive to narrow down your prospective audience, “everyone” is not an ideal client group; it is a wish list!

Marketing to everyone results in lots of mixed messages so no one knows who you are, what you sell, and what you stand for. By trying to be everything to everyone, instead of something to someone, you end up being nothing to no one. 

This blog discusses the steps needed to craft your ideal client persona and finishes with a quick start worksheet to help you define it.
