Identify the Target Customers: Unlike the broader analysis of the market; here you aim on the targeted customers. You look for the scopes where you can promote or market your product to get the higher returns and acceptance. Here from targeted customers to clients, you also find out the needs and demands of the audience. Once you know, who all are your customers and what exactly they are looking for then you can jump to next step.
Coming back to my questions to entrepreneurs and small business owners, many of their answers sounded like this, "I don't really have one", "It's in my head coz I know the business so well" and worse, "I don't know what is marketing plan"! If you happen to be in one of these categories, rest assured you are not the only one. And to perfectly honest, that's the ultimate reason why I turned back to my writing board where I was actually in the middle of writing (rather perfecting!) a personal development programs. I dropped that program and quickly drafted and started Marketing Plan Breakthrough S6PEC because many of you need it, seriously.
