Smart marketers are using niche and people to adapt their message to specific needs of customers through relevant discussions. People beyond demographics. Defining characteristics, current conditions and influential audience. Characters ultimately give us a way to recognize and speak the “language” of many types of people that our products or services can help.

Thinking on these facts, I realized it was time to really define our niche businesses and characters. Always I have had “in mind”, but it was not until I started writing to understand the benefits that the process can bring.

Our Building Company People

The first thing I did was open the spreadsheet trust and define our niche. Niches are different characters and are a subset of customers provide a limited scope for better targeting of content. There can be many characters in a niche.

Once defined some of my best niches I moved to define the character of our email marketing niche. Right here is where I had my “duh!” Time. I realized that what I was trying to create in the spreadsheet is a scheme with more and deeper levels of detail that defines my character.

My “duh!” Was that calc {list} ‘s outline lists are perfect for this. Like everyone else my natural reaction is to put everything in a sheet calculation. Using calc {list} makes the definition of characters much easier and can be used later for the campaigns themselves.

In his book explains how B2B characters are different characters of consumers. She says: “The personal characteristics are important, but B2B characters must recognize that professional status perspective and priorities that dominate more about what catches your eye when it comes time to solve a business issue. ”

She continues expanding its B2B character definition that I used as a framework for six categories of characters. It was later extended to every category, with reference to our product. A quick summary of the six:

  • The problems to be solved: These are problems that tend to remain at the forefront of his mind and potential sore spots.
  • Current Environment: Are there any obstacles to the adoption of measures by the purchase of our product? These may include political conditions, lack of consensus on how to solve problems, budgetary constraints, etc.
