To achieve extremely high levels of Digital Marketing ROI, you will need to take all of your marketing efforts to the next level. The more you can understand your target market, the better your efforts will be. This is true for every business in every market. Learn to understand your target customers, their needs, and most importantly, what motivates them to act.
Ideally, you would be able to ask your customers directly, but that may not always be feasible. You can get some answers easily if you know where to look and what technologies to leverage. Questionnaires, surveys, or customer feedback through Email Marketing or Social Media Advertising. Social Listening Tools that are available through Reputation Management Platforms are excellent options that require a minimal time investment on your part is also another excellent option. These platforms can provide invaluable feedback about what your target and existing customers need and want from your business. Having that knowledge can accelerate your ability to strategically increase sales and profit.
The work is using every resource you have to turn the ephemeral, loose customer persona into a tangible, living person. It’s still a caricature, sure, but now it’s based on a real identity that has goals, values, and needs that can be identified and filled by your products or services. Customers today want to feel seen, and understood, and they are wise to the traditional marketing techniques. If you want to get in with this new crowd of marketing-savvy individuals, you have to start by understanding what drives them. Accomplish that, and the leads will flow to you like water.
Remember, we want to tee this up for them, but not be so forceful that they feel like they are losing their autonomy. It’s a delicate balance, and unique market segments will respond differently depending on how you present yourself. The more you can learn about your current and prospective clientele, the more likely you are to reach unfathomed revenue potential.
