Learn and Improve: Knowing your target well helps you adjust strategies for different groups. You learn and grow smarter.
Understanding Your Customers
Your solution must match their needs. If you understand what your customers need and offer the right solution:
Buyer Connection: Customers buy when they feel understood and when your solution is their best option.
Efficient Solutions: You must show them the path to success in a way that’s convenient for them.
Avoid Assumptions: You can’t guess what they need. If they’re not buying, it’s likely because you’re not targeting them effectively.
Defining Your Customer Avatar
Creating your customer profile involves several steps:
Target Criteria: Define the criteria that make a customer right for your product. These are key indicators.
Demographics: Who they are, their background, and what they do. This builds the initial profile.
Targeting Attributes: Important details that help you find these people outside of your mind.
Customer Archetype: Shortcut categories that guide your marketing and strategy.
Job to Be Done

Identifying Their Job: Recognizing what the customer is trying to achieve and what’s holding them back.
Solving Their Challenge: Offering a solution that helps them get past those hurdles efficiently.
