Authentic, memorable, valuable content and information delivered to the right people in the appropriate way is more critical than ever. The economy is driven by the customer, what they want, what they need, and how they want information communicated.

This course approaches market research with realistic and actionable insights that you can apply to your business.
Over the past year, this course was developed into a succinct, practical, and actionable series of episodes that anyone could do. The outcome is clarity on how to find your tribe of ideal customers.
You're guided through 8 Steps of a Market Research Plan to identify your ideal customers. This process starts with you, the business owner and your brand, and it concludes with creating customer personas for long-term use in your business.
A persona is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal customer.

Creating personas (or avatars) are valuable for supporting several processes in your business. Obviously, it's helpful for marketing and sales, because you can speak to your ideal customers. But it's also a tremendous tool for your product development or the development of your core offerings. It provides a structure for someone else on your team or a consultant to understand your ideal customer and how to best communicate with your tribe or how to deliver the best product/service.
If you're struggling with customer satisfaction or reaching the right people, then this is the work you should be doing.

Like you, I once felt overwhelmed by the idea of having to seriously look at my market research and deal with all of the information I would gather.
Instead of avoiding it, I faced it head on. Not only did I conduct the usual research into how others were handling market research, but I used my own experiences and some logical steps or organize this course.
This course is the same format that I used for myself and my clients when conducting market research. It works because it's thorough, but not complicated.
