Understanding Your Audience

by IBMoore In reply to Is Social Media the most ...

Although Social Media Marketing can be a very effective way to extend brand awareness and customer interaction, it isn't always the right path for all companies and brands to take.
When it comes to determining whether Social Media Marketing will be a good fit one must first establish what audience it is that you'd like to reach. The best way to do this is to create an avatar as an example perfect client/customer. You can start by establishing who your client/customer is:
Niche Group
Spending Habits
Once you know what that perfect customer looks like you should have a better idea of what "Channels" they will be tuned into. If your client is a fifty something year old female then Facebook may be a good fit. Or maybe your client is a 30 something year old male, maybe Twitter? Or perhaps you are trying to reach businesses more than people - try Linked In. Casual 30 something year old shopper, Instagram?
While Social Media can be an effective and budget friendly way to market, if you don't find your specific audience there then you may need to explore other channels.
