The first people you must know are your customers. Then you need to know who your prospective customers are. Accurate audience analysis will tell you both.
Sounds simple enough, but there are likely to be multiple audiences within each category, and even more subset audiences within each audience. Suddenly it gets pretty complicated. Traditional audience analysis tools such as demographics and psychographics still apply, but the digital age has brought forth a more granular method of research – keyword research. Knowing how to accurately assess the intent behind keyword searches is both art and science.
Accurate audience analysis is absolutely critical to create messaging that resonates with your audiences. Once that happens, your credibility soars above the crowd.
